Stayed at this hostel for 6 days in may/june. Wifi only works in the common area on the bottom floor, so there is no one on the rooftop terrace which is a shame. It's a nice terrace. No wifi in the rooms. Breakfast is simple but good enough. Most of the staff is very friendly and helpful with finding directions.... More

I visited Kuala Lumpur for transit. And I just needed one night and got no accompany, so I decided to stay at a guesthouse/hostel to save money. But I need a nice and tidy place. After checking the comments, I feel this guesthouse is what I am looking for: good location and clean amenities. It is not hard to find... More

One of the nicest hostels I've stayed in Asia. Dorm rooms are spacious, a/c is cold, bathrooms are clean and well maintained. Great common area with fast wifi and plenty of seating. Breakfast is decent, just bread, but 6 kinds of jam and also peanut butter! Great staff, great place, highly recommend!

Our time in KL was made 10x better by the helpful women at the front desk here. The place is nice and clean and kept up, but the employees are its best feature! They will help you get anywhere, give you honest opinions about what touristy things are worth seeing and which arent, etc. They made KL really nice for... More

Great place to stay in Kuala Lumpur. Great location in the center of China Town. Close to local transport which makes it easy to explore the city. Double rooms are small but clean. Only downside was the lack of sockets in the room. There is no wifi in the rooms (only in some rooms on the first floor). Room without... More

It wasn't easy locating this guesthouse initially as the sign was fading & rather small against the cityline backdrop. Nonetheless, it's cosy & very near to the train station. Right across is Petaling Street & Chinatown area. Walk down further & you will come across Little India area (Masjid India). Berjaya Times Square is about 20-30mins walk from the guesthouse,...

I chose this guesthouse because i felt that the guesthouse look less boring and is cosy compared to the other KL guesthouse that was shown in tripadvisor. The location is strategic, right opposite to petaling street (chinatown). this also means that it's near to the LRT station where one can head to KLCC area (where Petronass Twin Towers is). The...
