    The PODs hostel was located nearby KL Sentral, it's a good location because you can reach LRT, monorail and bus to airport KLIA by walk around 3 minutes only. The price was cheap, it's very suitable for solo traveler.

    I stayed here only 1 night but would say it's nice place and very convenient because close to KL Sentral. From there, you can walk only 2-3 min to take a bus to the airport. It's my first choice to stay in KL next time.

    Nice hostel, clean (both room and bathrooms). Has lockers (even if you don't see them in the pictures), Wi-Fi, a/c and towel. Maybe they overdo the a/c like everywhere in Asia, but the bed was comfy. Nice cafè, good location, friendly staff!
