“The softest pillow in malaysia!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 December 2010

Super friendly staff
This hostel is just starting out, but it is a truly wonderful place to stay. I was so thankful to have such a fluffy pillow, a soft blanket and aircon in every room. These guys want to know what you want from a hostel. I paid 25 ringet as I had a room with a set of bunkbeds to myself, an absolute bargain in Kk for a lovely spacious room and breakfast included. If you want a comfy place to rest your head for a night or more this us the place to stay. This hostel will be THE place to stay when in KK as the owners are enthusiastic kind super friendly and helpful. There are things to be completed like an ousted seating area but the comfy lounge is a good start for people to hang out.

I loved the bunibon lodge and it's spirit!
