The hostel is in the middle of KL's lively China town, on sultan road. There's lots of good and cheap places to eat around (especially the food courts), plenty of street food and fruit stalls, there's 7- elevens and KK supermarkets round the corner, not to mention the many stalls of the Chinese markets in the streets. The atmosphere is... More

As the title states I love the backpackers travelers inn. The staff is very accommodating and the location is great. The rooftop is perfect, regardless if its breakfast in the morning or drinks in the evening- its a great place to socialize and meet your fellow travelers. Big thanks to Chris for the advice and assistance.

I intended staying 3 nights but in the end stayed 1 week because it felt like my second home! Friendly staff, clean and spacious. No shortage of bathrooms too. Don't be shy to visit the cool roof top bar (you can work off those Chinese dumplings you got from across the street when climbing the stairs!) It sells the cheapest... More

I was here for just over a month and found the place to disprove key facts about KL; that it is expensive to stay and drink here without a safe, clean and friendly environment. It is, by far, the best value hostel for such a cracking, central location. Excellent transport links, food, shopping and clubbing all within 20 minutes from... More

Being too girls we were a little bit afraid about the position in the heart of china town and the price which looked really low. The hostel is minimal but clean. internet connection works and the position is perfect to see the city. the... More
