“Gem in Bangsar”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 July 2014

The bodhi lodge is definitely a yes for budget traveller, I stayed in a mixed dorm for just one night. However, I am impressed by the cleanliness of the lodge and the friendly owner, GG. It is a home away from home. Everything is just very nice. Besides, the location is very strategic, less than 5 minutes to Bangsar LRT and Bangsar bus station. Will go back if I travel to kl again. Btw the address in tripadvisor is not the latest one. They had been shifted to Bangsar. Latest address can check via their official website.

I stayed to that guest house just for one night between my trips and needed late check in.
A very nice place inside, friendly and attentive lady-receptionist has made my staying there nice and comfortable.

Room Tip: Ask to receptionist for any assistance

Bodhi has a great location just a 2-3 minute walk from the subway station.

Staff are very friendly and helpful. They provide great information and suggestions for what to do.

The common area feels so homely with it's armchairs and sofas. There's a big widescreen tv. There is aircon and fans in the common area.

There are 2 computers for guests to use. The wifi is excellent.

The rooms are so comfortable. They're clean. Lockers and locks are provided in the dorms. There is aircon.

Shared bathrooms are also spotless with hot water in the shower.

This place feels really fresh and new. It's decorated so beautifully and it is so refreshing to stay at a hostel that feels like it's a home away from home.

Actually there is nothing else to say than home away from home.
I had a really nice stay at this place and the host Gege made it even better. She knows all the places at KL and is always happy to help you out. If you dont know where to go or what to eat just approach her and she will tell you all the secrets. The hostel by itself is great value for the money. The kitchen is well equipped and she provides even free drinking water. The Bodhi Lodge is located just a 5 minute walk from the bustling bar scene of Bangsar. And if you want to go out to the city, the MTR is around 2 minutes away. I highly recommend this place and I am looking forward to stay there again for doing another cookout ;-).

Stayed here 4 nights. The place is ideal for rest and recuperation or visiting all sights in KL. Although I was unwell during my first 2 days the place was ideal to recover with the single rooms available for my needs. Clean, relaxing and comfortable accomodation with very helpful owner xox
