We’re in Brickfields, located very close to KL Sentral, the main hub of the city’s railway station:

By bus: From the airports (KLIA or KLIA2), it is best to take bus to KL Sentral (1 hour), for RM10.
By train: Express train from the airports (KLIA or KLIA2) to KL Sentral takes only 30 minutes for RM35.

Once inside KL Sentral, make your way up by an escalator to get yourself inside Nu Sentral shopping mall located just next to KL Sentral and head towards KL Sentral monorail station. Exit the mall and you will reach KL Sentral monorail station located at a pedestrian bridge. Walk through the bridge to cross Jalan Tun Sambanthan, the main road.

At the end of the bridge, go down a well designed escalator and then walk further a little bit until you see a small street on your left before De Sentral Hotel. Turn left and walk further to Jalan Thambipillay and you will see PODs The Backpackers Home (light green color signboard) right in front of you.

Located Near

PODs The Backpackers Home is very close to KL Sentral, the transportation hub of KL. Buses, trains, monorail, LRT, KTM and taxi's are easily found. Hence travelling to local attractions such as The Golden Triangle, Chinatown, Midvalley, Lake Gardens, Thean Hou Temple and the National Museum or links connecting to other states in the country is very convenient. There are many local food stores available in the area, as well as banks, money changers, post office, and 24-hour convenience stores.
