The explorers Guesthouse has air conditioning in the common area which maybe you don't usually need or expect in a budget place in Kuala Lumpur, but China town is hectic, and it feels great to come into a common area where you can sit down and not stick to the vinyl couches. It's a little bit dark and it's clean because you take your shoes off in the entry way, and you can buy beer from the front desk. There's book exchange, a flat screen TV with good couches, and two computers with Internet in the same common area, which also has ceiling fans in addition to the air conditioning. It's one of these hostels that's so comfortable it makes it hard to motivate to go outside. But if you do go outside, maybe because you urgently need to fulfill your needs for chichen sattay and/or knock-off Burbery luggage, you can walk to Pettaling street in about a minute. You can also quickly get to Reggae Bar (if you want to leave the hostel, but you don't want to leave the hostll experience behind.) The Explorers' Guesthouse has a pricing schedule that will make you stop and think. For 30 RM (9.67 US) you can stay in a room that has ten people in it. For 33 RM (10.64) you can stay in a room with six people. Today that choice is a dollar and three cent difference, but who are the four people you would be paying not to stay with? Discuss amongst yourselves. But if you want a bunk or a room, a reservation can't hurt because the place fills up.
