This hostal is really nice, pleasant staff, nice clean rooms with air con, lockers and plenty of space, the beds we're actually quite comfy. I was in a four bed and we all had plenty of space to put all our belongings. Free breakfast is just toast but still it's something. Wifi good but only on ground floor. Not a... More

This is a very pleasant guesthouse/hostel. Rooms are clean - however, you need to have one not facing the street if you want a quiet night! Breakfast is included - basic but fine. The common areas are nice to spend time in and the staff are helpful.

used the hostel as a base for watching the Malaysian Grand Prix, it's next to Chinatown which is very lively in the evenings and great to walk around and eat in. Backpacker style bars are nearby, for some of the more glamorous rooftop bars its further away. However the nearest station is one stop for KL central which makes it... More

Really comfy beds. Slept like a rock. The location is great too, being right by the metro and the markets and Chine town etc. It's a great base for exploring KL. The lady working the front desk is very sweet and will be delighted to answer all your questions. Great guesthouse with good facilities. Recommend.

I stayed at the Explorers guest house on two occasions back in February. Suffice to say, on the second occasion, I was not as happy as on the first, as I returned with a broken foot. The staff at explorers were immensely helpful with this, and really went out of their way to assist me. I can't say enough good... More

Good size room, great price given for 2 adults and 2 children and a lovely greeting at the desk. Free tea and coffee, toast in the morning and lots of games for the kids in the foyer communal area. Excellent location, tidy and clean bathrooms, hot water, AC cranks and WiFi good in foyer. What more could one ask for?

This is one of the best hostel/guesthouses I've stayed in. It was very clean, traveler friendly, and awesome location. One block from the Central Market, one block from China town, a block from trains and mass transit.

Stayed there for a night in a dorm. The room was alright, nothing special to it. Nice facilities. The staff is extremely helpful and friendly. Coffee and tea available at all times. Very nice common space. Would definitely go back.
