Chinatown (aka Petaling Street) and Bukit Bintang aren't that far apart. You can walk from one place to another in 15-20 minutes. My friends had stayed in Red Palm and I personally had been there so many times (to meet up with them) that the owner recognises me. So far, they're all thumbs up for Red Palm. As for Stayorange, I don't know anything about it, so I have no comments on the place.

Well, as for Orangestay, it is near the bus hub and also LRT station of Pasar Seni which is quite convinient. It might get a lil noisy at night because of the night market along Petaling Street but not as bad at Khaosan Rd because there's no noisy pubs near Orangestay. As what Hien said, Bukit Bintang and Chinatown is not that far. So you can walk there.

hi just return from my trip, i was stay at stayorange 2 night. i took the double.
the room in my opinion is very small. just 1 double bed and attch bathroom + plasma tv and nothing else in that room..
put all our bags on floor and make us difficult to move..the place is clean and easy to find,just located beside McD.

Stayed at Grocer's Inn Backpackers Hostel (behind Orangestay) and found it economical, clean, well ventilated, not overcrowded and with good staff. Its renovated and having a touch of history. Also rooms towards the end have place outside to sit in open. Regards
