Suzie's Guesthouse, Kuala Lumpur - Hostel Review



I was in KL for 3 days and decided to stay at the Suzie's Guesthouse because they got some good rating everywhere online. Here I will gave some reviews about this hostel.

Date of Stay: 20-23 Feb 2015 (3 days) 
Price: RM30 (Agoda) per night for 6 beds mix room
Address: 179, Jalan Tun H S Lee, 55100 Kuala Lumpur, Wilayah Persekutuan Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

LOCATION

I love the location. I think it's only 5 minutes away from the Pasar Seni Station. In front of the hostel there are 7-11. It is the same road with Reggae Bar and the Sri Mahamariamman Temple, and 3 minutes walk to Petaling Street.


STAFF

There are 3 staffs basically. 2 guy from Bangladesh and 1 woman from Philippines. 1 guy is very friendly, and the 2nd guy barely talk and a little bit unfriendly. When I came to the hostel, even I press the bell, he did not open the door until I call the hostel. It is weird, because he told me he did not hear the bell event hough he was at the counter the whole time. Another thing is the staff will slept in your room or whenever there are empty bed. Wicked?



ENVIRONMENT

I love the environment here. Because of the guest will hang out at the long table, so you can socializing and get to know new friends.


KITCHEN

The kitchen is at the centre and actually the main place to socializing. The have a microwave which is good, also the fridge (you need to put your name on your food). The breakfast is pretty basic, with the bread and various type of fruit jam / peanuts / butter. Coffee / Hot Tea / Water you can get it all the time you want as long as you wash your own mug.



6-BEDS DORM ROOM

No window and it is quite moody. The plug extension available in the room. And everyone got their own light. The room a little bit cramped you if you had nothing valuable, you can just put your bag outside. The room have AC and it is quite cold and it will stop during the day, that is why your room door will always open during the day.



FACILITIES

The Wi-Fi quite fast. They have 2 PCs available but only 1 work perfectly. 1 person only got 20 minutes for the PC if there anyone else waiting, if not, its all yours. The have LCD TV. The AC at the lobby quite cold at the middle of the night. The bathrooms clean, there are 4 bathrooms available. Hot shower, hair dryer also available.


SECURITY

To enter the hostel, you need the password at the door. They also having a CCTV. The small locker also been provided. But they keep letting salesperson enter the facility to promote something. Also they let the non-guest (friend with guest) to hang out at the lobby.


CONCLUSION

In this area, there are 4 popular hostel. Many peoples based on my observation staying at Raizzy's Guesthouse (Just next to this hostel). But if you are looking not so pack of people and to stay relax for a while, I recommend this place. The price is a little bit higher if you compare to other hostel around.
