Happy Cat Guesthouse
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 13 March 2016

Nice:
The decoration (feel really good about it, unlike these cold basics concrete places), the wooden floor (give a nice touch), safe, cheap and great location.

Bad:
The wooden floor (noisy), few bathrooms (and even less with wester toilets) and you have to cross the kitchen to get there, hotter than other cheap place to stay, the girl in the office not friendly, no water filter/distributor and the worse mattress I ever seen

really liked this guest house , it's a lovely place to stay but as i said in the title there are a few things they need to get improved : first of all the toilets, sometimes you really need a mask to get in the stench is too much , floor really delicate , you can hear people walking from your room it's not a big deal but at the night time when would you like just to relax or sleep is a bit annoying for the rest the place is nice with kitchen ,small garden , living room .

Cool Place, Alot Art, Great friendly People, Relaxed Atmosphere, Cheap Dorms and Single Rooms!
Took care so long for over a week of my luggage and let me stay even the day without sleeping there.
And there is Birdnest one just around the corner with a nice rooftop, where you're free to go! With cool night events.

My girlfriend and I stayed in a double room with ac for 3 nights whilst travelling through Malaysia. The guesthouse is clean, safe and easy to find. The wooden floor boards are a bit loose and if you are a light sleeper, you will struggle to get any rest here. So bring some ear plugs.

It is however a great location for exploring china town and is only 1 stop from KLCC station and is walking distance (20-30 mins) to the bird sanctuary, deer park and the orchid gardens.

Good wifi, basic but clean shared toilet/shower facilites and friendly staff.

Spent a few nights here over New Years and found it comfortable with a friendly vibe.
There are lots of people doing work exchanges on projects there.
Willi the owner, despite often busy is very warm, welcoming, talkative, interesting and helpful when you do catch a moment of his time.
Had a very European style hostel aura to the place to me; pop art walls, pet reptiles and cats, communal kitchen and group events through the week etc.
Would visit again.

Hostel was great and clean with a sweet little outside area. What really made it stand out was how superb the staff were! Willi was really helpful with everything from onward buses to other hostel recommendations and when I left my portable charger at the hostel he went above and beyond to reunite me with it even though I had travelled on out of KL. Would definitely recommend.

Bed Bugz in most of the rooms (3 out of 4 I've tried, they change the sheets and then give the room to the next guest) the owners absolutely doesn't car about it and doesn't care about the guests in general.

The staff tried everything they could to not take any responsibility about it, from telling me that it is because my blood is sweet, to "you're the only one to complain about it" took me while to find out it was NOT mosquitoes, and had to show my bug catches and bites has a proof!

The staff is absolutely unfriendly, special word from the owner>>> do not expect us to be smiling at you all the time! which is pretty much never.

I usually can sleep anywhere, but not there.

Stayed: January 2016
