I liked this place so much, that I went back and stayed again. It's a backpacker hostel, but I stayed in their private rooms with private bathrooms. Very close to a metro station. My rooms were clean. There is free wifi accessible inside the room. It's a great place to meet travellers. The reception staff and really friendly and helpful.... More

I got what I paid for. A $9.42 private room in the heart of KL with AirCon. I also got bedbugs, a filthy shared bathroom with plenty of fungi friends and pretty rude owners who appeared very pissed at me for having the nerve to rent one of their hotel rooms. Also note: toilet paper, soap, towels, and luggage storage... More

I stayed here with my 11 year old son in 2014. We were backpacking around Malaysia, cash was low when we were in KL, and Hotel Cosmopolitan was all we could afford. You know, it was fine. We paid a budget price and we got budget accommodation. Our room was pokey and had no windows, but it was clean. The... More

The hotel is cheap but located in a very convenient location. It's clean and close to many local food stalls. It's easy to get to the city as the hotel is close to a monorail station. I strongly recommend this place to both locals and tourists.

Cockroaches fell out of air conditioner when i turned it on. Rooms are windowless. Place is run like a budget airline you must pay for towel rental as well as toilet paper. Owner is very curt and rude with people. Dirty and for the price there are better options in kl.

This place was much cheaper, cleaner and nicer than the last hostel we stayed at in KL. Rooms don't have windows but that wasn't a problem. There is a kitchen and TV area and wi-fi was good. Showers had warm water. The location is near the Monorail, so it's easy to get to and only one stop from the bus... More

We stayed in this hostel a couple of weeks ago and I thought it was only fair to write a review mainly to thank the manager who really helped us out when we got muddled up in our reservations. Location is not perfect but is very close to the monorail and taxis are easy to find. We were in a... More

The Hostel is pleasant and you get what you pay for. It took us a while to find the hostel, only a sign to indicate where the hostel is, but the sign is not very noticeable with it being located on a busy street. Our room was just a double bed, a wardrobe, air con and a fan. Not even... More

We stayed for a couple nights after a long journey from Thailand. Beds weren't the comfiest but you get used to that when travelling. The staff are friendly and helpful. The communial area is good but not much goes on there in terms of socialising. A good location as right near the monorail for ease of transport. The word of... More
