It's for those who like to safe some money on sleeping .. but its a great city .. breakfast on the roof is amazing . The hostel is very well located and easily accessible from a couple of train stops and very close to KL Sentral.

The room was cheap and the bed comfy but it was a windowless dungeon. Reasonably clean and staff were friendly. Don't get breakfast from the café upstairs if you are in a hurry, it took 45 mins to make fruit museli and a pancake! The bar also didn't seem to be open while we were there :(

The rooms was ok for the money. The staff, at least in my case was quite nice. The wifi work fine. But the unpleasant experience was the BED BUGS. Even after we had to change urgently the room, in the middle of the night, the second room wasn't much better !!! And, for those of you who never had that... More

Although the price may seem enticing, I'd seriously recommended splashing out that extra 10/15 RM and having accommodation that's clean and doesn't leave your skin crawling!! On our arrival we spotted a poster in the hallway slating another hostel about it's bed bugs and rude staff, advising travellers not to stay there... If that wasn't bad enough, after staying here...

As other travelers mentioned before: nothing special or delux here, but it will do. The rooms are small, concrete boxes with a bed and a stick of furniture if you are lucky. We opted for a fan room with outside window (the ones on the second floor have a balcony overlooking the busy Jalan Sultan). They are a tad more... More

Friendly cheap place to stay for a couple of nights. Great communal bar on the rooftop with other travellers. Plenty of fellow travellers here to share local information and things to do. The cheapest, if not the grandest place to stay if you're on a budget.

Had many bed bugs in my room... Quite dirty with some cock roaches, too. Would Not really recommend this hostel. But its cheap, and if you dont have bugs its okay for 1 or 2 nights. So Check your beds exactly
