Has potential, but stinky carpet must go
The carpet in the guest rooms smells very bad. Carpet needs to be pulled up ASAP. Otherwise it's a nice place, friendly staff.

Explorers Guesthouse was a great place to stay for a few days in Kuala Lumpur. It was clean, quiet and comfortable. Staff were very friendly and always available. There is a free light breakfast (toast and assorted jellies), coffee and tea, and WiFi throughout the building. The location is centrally located near Chinatown, several markets and is within walking distance of KL Eco Park.

Good 6.0
The guy at reception was unhelpful I can say. When I asked place, just explain Virvary but not clear enough of course. and when I asked him more detail, he said “just cross over the road and you can see “ and in the end I couldn’t find it :( he shouldn’t be like that if you he is at receptionist Shower water is very very weak.
