Raizzy's Guesthouse
Ranked #2 of 353 Kuala Lumpur B&B and Inns
Reviewed 2 May 2014 via mobile

Had a fantastic stay here for three nights in a twin room with a friend. Room was clean and comfortable, with good a/c and lock boxes under the bed for valuables. Beds were a little hard, but think it's due to the mattresses being new, and the blanket is just the right thickness for a Malaysian night.

Staff were super friendly, speak excellent English and offered to clean the room and replace towels after 2 days which is unheardof in hostels, and also good quality shower products were supplied in the shared bathrooms, which were kept clean and stocked with all essentials throughout the day. I had my laundry done too which was done quickly and returned dry, ironed and folded.

Breakfast is basic, but free, and a nice touch, with free tea and coffee throughout the day, and they have a very reasonably priced fridge selling drinks also.

Location is perfect, everything of note is within 20mins walk, or if you're feeling lazy, it's right by the metro, bus station, monorail stop AND train station, and there are plenty of restaurants, bars and markets within a couple minutes walk.

Only fault I could find is that the internet is a bit unreliable, but no more so than any other Asian hostel, and when working it's super fast!

All in all, completely recommend this hostel, can't see there being better value in KL!!!

Good hostel in excellent location. Friendly staff. Would definitely recommend for short weekend stay. Shared bathrooms were clean and staff were friendly and helpful. Not a very fancy hostel but perfect for short stay. Would stay again when in KL.

We loved raizzys and have used it on three seperate occasions during oiur travels! The bathrooms, rooms, breakfast etc is basic, clean and tidy. Good location, 1 minute walk to nearest metro, buses, and chinatown. What makes the place, is the staff. Friendly, polite and very helpful!!! If Jack is still there, have a drink with him, he has some great advice on Malaysia! Would definitely come back!

Myself and 12 friends chose this hostel to stay at for Future music festival weekend. And we were so glad we did. The 12 bed dorm was spacious and well air conditioned. The bathrooms were also very clean with hot or cool showers, whatever your bag is! Towels and blankets provided and the front door is secured by code, then you have a key for your room.

It's located right next to china town so everything is accessible, there's a 7/11 across the street and also a great restaurant over the road., advertised as veggie but there is also meat there. Also right by the bus station for local buses.

There is free coffee/tea and toast for breakfast. And you can have as much as you like..they even keep it out for most of the day!

What made our stay so nice was the staff there, who were fun, helpful, attentive and were not phased at such a large and slightly rowdy group. We dressed up for festival and they humoured us by wanting pictures and being as excitable as we were.

I left 4 days ago and am already contemplating going back to KL just for Raizzys!
We paid 35RM pp but this may have been promotional due to the large group.
Worth every penny, I can't thank them enough.

Stayed here with FOURTEEN of us travelling for the Future Music Festival. They worked with us on all the switching, people coming and going, and never once complained about it. The woman at the front desk took pictures of us while we all dressed up for the festival, offered to forward of a friend of our's package elsewhere, and generally made us feel very welcome. Location is RIGHT near the bus station and Petaling street. Extremely convenient location.

Showers are clean, bathrooms are nice and plentiful, and the rooms are clean. We all could not have asked for a better hostel for us. PLUS the rooms are very well insulated so there were never any noise issues from us or anyone else in the place.

PS: If Jack is still there have a drink with him!

Raizzys was hospitable, warm, and nothing but helpful. We had a very large group and they accommodated us to the fullest extent. The facilities are clean and the breakfast included is convenient. Would 100% stay here again. It is conveniently located to amazing and cheap food as well as the free bus lines.
