We stayed in Blessings Homestay for 8 nights. We stayed in the family bedroom since there were 4 of us. It's a huge bedroom which can probably sleep more people. It's a great location in a quiet neighborhood. It's walking distance to the metro/rail train which will get you around town. You can also walk to restaurants and shopping mall which is about 3 blocks away. The place is run by a family, the owner Yuen Mun is nice and very helpful if you need recommendations on restaurants, tourist attractions, etc.. Since it's a homestay (B&B), we met a lot of other travelers from other parts of Malaysia/Singapore and also from the states. For the price and location, it's a pretty good deal.

If you are looking for great value and outstanding educational experience for a family with children of 6 and older,(our was 8 and 12) this is it! Homestay provides you a glimpse into the hierchy of a typical Chinese Malaysian family. Areas of learning are: the roles of servant/their stories, the treatment of the elderly,the expectations of teenage life, women's role in the society. Get insights from a successful retired tour guide(sister). You can learn from "Mun" the owner about advertising,the history of foods, hawkers (aka food trucks), political systems and what it means to be a minority in the country. Diabetes is huge here and divorce rates are just starting to become a norm but still taboo in many ways. Not much support system yet.

If you are foodie like me, and want to learn to make a dish, get a cooking class by the owner"Mum" at a additional cost. It will be very reasonable compared to any cooking classes you will in US. Mun is an accomplish chef with many years years experience with traditional malaysian food.

Homestay is a great value if you enjoy heart felt conversations,comfortable accommodations and a convenient location. Advice is always free. If you are a Rick Steve's traveler like I am then you will definitely enjoy this place. There are many travelers from other countries who are missionaries as well. It was great to hear how a Korean missionary family integrates into war zone areas in Afghanistan. Easy to get to know others due to the way the rooms converge to the middle of the house where you can sit and eat at antique tables, watch TV, play piano, or rest on bamboo chairs, soaking up sun rays through the sky light and listening to the water trickling down into a coi pond or you can go out to the front where there are couple of huge tables to sit, read, play board games and be greeted by the neighborhood black squirrels, or hear the rustling of bamboo leaves and the noise from neighboring dogs. Or else, just take a walk to the train station and go into town which takes only less than 10-15 minutes. Homestay is in Bangsar and is considered a new hip area and its a couple walking blocks. It is equated to the Marias district (Paris) or the soho district of KL. Even with all the hips trends, its still such a steal if you are into shopping. Don't forget to try the Charcoal Burger during your visit!

Homestay is really like living with a family..thus liquor on the premises is not encouraged neither is inappropriate behaviors like swearing, smoking etc..
If you do stay out beyond 12am, its nice to communicate to Mun so that someone will let you in through the locked gate. Its really meant for security for the guest like yourself and young ones and the family that lives there.

Happy Learning!

I've stayed here a few times, sadly it feels like the standard of cleanliness is going down, apparently because they dont have good hired help /no full time cleaner.

I left some food in the refrigerator, a family member took it out and put something else inside the fridge (her item was not perishable and did not require refrigeration). My food which was meant to be my breakfast was spoilt.

I am terrified of roaches, so it was good to see their windows were boarded with a net to prevent them from crawling or flying in (KL has lots of them..ugh!)

Bear in mind this is a house, a terrace house and it has other houses in the front, side and back so be prepared to hear the neighbours cooking or talking at certain times during the day, so if you are not in your room all day, it should be okay.

I'd still recommend it, because you get a clean bed and bathroom to sleep in and its centralised and fit my budget. Mun is a kind and helpful person as is her lovely niece Elena.

"If there is just two of you, the rooms up stair are great!! If for family, there are 3 big rooms on the ground floor and 2 rooms upstairs All rooms are have good cooling systems. Quieter upstairs and in the back Breakfast are usually coffee, tropical fruits, toast and spreads. If you need protein let mun know. Ask Mun about specialty foods and great hawkers to visit if you are into food."
