Hotels/hostels Tengkat Tong Sin

Jan 2, 2013

I felt a bit ripped off by hostel Number Eight. If I had been charged £15 per night I would not have complained. £25 seems a bit steep given the basic quality of the room and the noise at night. The location in Bukit Bintang for local cheap eatery and the monorail. I decided to compare a few nearby hostels.

Gren Hut, RAE hotel and Alpha Genesis are all on the same road as Hotel Number 8.

Green Hut 48 has a back packer feel but the room I saw had a better bathroom and also included wifi and breakfast.  Charge is RM100 for single but receptionist offered 90RM for three nights. The rooms in Green Hut are basic but better than number 8 for the price.

RAE hotel I could only see room between 2pm and 5pm. RM128 room no window, no brekkie, RM138 rm per night for the same type of room but with a window. Photo of the room it looked looked like those in Alpha Genesis.

Alpha Genesis is a more a conventional hotel. There were slight carpet stains but the room was clean enough. A single room is RM179 with ok bathroom and RM199 for a slightly bigger twin/double room.

For price I recommend Green Hut. There must be at least 10, 20 (?) basic hotels/ backpackers within a 5 minute walk from Bukit Bintang monorail station.
