Pondok Lodge is a gem of a guest house in the Golden Triangle, established since 1995.We are ideally located on the nicer end of Changkat Bukit Bintang, within walking distance from the Twin Towers, KL Tower, China Town, Pudu Raya bus terminal, restaurants, clubs and bars, 24-hour convenience stores, shopping malls and the Monorail.Spacious and tastefully decorated and a popular retreat for budget travelers, Pondok Lodge is one of Kuala Lumpur's best. We offer 25 clean, comfortable fully air-conditioned rooms, reading rooms, TV room and rooftop garden sitting area.Guests will enjoy our homely atmosphere with warm and friendly staff. We also offer 24-hour security and safe deposit boxes.
We arrived to the Pondok Lodge in late August 2008. The hostel itself is quite lovely with nice common lounges and big private rooms. The first night was problem free (except for the massive rats in the hallway). The trouble really began the second night (or morning after) when i awoke covered in bites.
We discovered they were bedbugs and so the management changed our room and guaranteed no more bugs. Next morning same story... I woke up covered in double the bites and even found the little buggers in the bed. I wasn't the only one... a few other travellers came to breakfast covered in bites. This place is certifiably (even saw the paperwork at the reception desk to prove it) infested with bedbugs and ticks. Travellers beware!
You may look for a better place to sleep with around $20 more.
It was not mentioned in the ad that the place is located at the third and fourth floors, no elevators.
You need to remove your shoes (which is pretty much inconvenient with heavy backpacks) before you enter the third floor reception.
You need to ask for things like towels or blankets else you won't get one.
Free budget breakfast.
Common toilet and shower room per floor.
