“Just what it says on the tin”
Reviewed 23 July 2014

What you read is what you get - AC, shower, toilet + toilet paper + soap, secure lock on the door, no windows, fried rice for breakfast, and a 24 hour reception all at a very reasonable price. The bed was pretty clean though it did have one small suspect stain (but i've slept on far worse). I stayed there for one night with my girlfriend when we were going backpacking around Malaysia and it was just what we needed - clean place to stay right in the heart of Bukit Bintan (the best place for street food in KL by a long way).

I stayed in the dorm and a private room, both are in seperate buildings. The dorm was really clean, individual powerpoint and lamps. However the 12 bed dorm was in the corridor accessing other rooms and the bathroom, so people were constantly coming and going slamming doors etc. In the middle of the night there was only girls in the dorm staying on the entire level, yet there were strange men coming and going which was uncomfortable and we felt unsafe.
The location is great and so is the price so I would probably stay again.

I and 2 friends stayed for 2 nights. The place is just ok. The room was VERY small, and even though there is a shower in the room, the toilets are outside, and shared with the rest of the rooms. Our room didn't have a window either.

The walls are thin, so it can be a little noisy, and its right in the jalan alor, which is a street market, so one of the mornings there was a smell of Durian (awful and stinky fruit) in the rooms.

Other than that, it is very close to restaurants and bars.

So, its ok if you are in a budget, but We wouldn't go back.

located in the middle of Bukit Bintang, the "entertainment" area of Kuala Lumpur, Budget Inn provides rooms and dorm beds with very reasonable price and friendly staff.
I stayed in the dorm where there was 12 beds and we shared three shower rooms and three toilets. moderately clean and as far as I experienced very safe. I paid 30 Ringets/ night and it includes a nice and small breakfast too.
I am a walker so everything is in walking distance for me; 15 minutes from China town, 0 minutes to Bukit Bintang and if you want to do some shopping there is PLENTY.
btw when I was here (22-27 Jan) we had an average of 3 people in the dorm so it was pretty convenient to use the bathrooms at anytime.
the only downside is that Jalan Alor is quite an smelly street but on the other hand its so alive with all the chinese restaurants and weird food :D
last but not least; the price i mentioned includes AC, WiFi and a towel and soap.

Room Tip: choose the dorm, why not, its like 10$ a nite with brkfast wifi and AC. best deal in KL

You get what you pay for. This is a really cheap hotel with not a lot of extras to offer. We had the double room and that's just what it was. A room with a double bed and TV in it. No wardrobe or bight stands. Only one plug to charge devices.

WiFi was available, but weak in the room. Fairly fast and strong in the lobby. The breakfast was toast and rice/noodles with tea and coffee.
