Good location, close to china town. Near a couple small bars. Air con, however in the dorm room, there are no windows which is a bit of a downer. Can't wake up to natural light and the traffic can be noisy (but that's city life!). But value for money with breakfast in the morning. Wifi only really works on ground... More

We stayed here for our first night in Kuala Lumpur, easy to find from the station, staff were lovely, everything was clean, comfy beds, chilled/friendly environment, free breakfast and wifi downstairs not a bad word to say! Go to the reggae bar round the corner

The hostel was almost perfect, the only drawback was the lack of window in our room. The rooms and toilets were spotless and the lady at the reception exceptionally nice and helpful. It was a little too expensive for our budget but really worth it.

Stayed here for 3 nights, excellent location with several LRT stations close by. The facilities are excellent. Free tea and coffee, wifi, desktops, tv etc in the downstairs area. The rooms and toilet areas are very clean. Very secure building also with a good atmosphere. Good place to meet fellow backpackers.

We slept there for 3 nights and it was really nice place. Rooms and bathrooms are clean. Location is also good and it is really easy to get anywhere from that place.The only "con" for me was that our rooms were without windows and it was really hard to wake up ;)

We stayed here on arrival in Malaysia, and returned when we passed through KL a second time. The rooms are clean, the beds comfortable, and the facilities are good. Although they have shared bathrooms, they are impeccably clean, and the showers are good and hot. There is free tea, coffee and internet which is very useful, and the location is... More

KL is not on my list of cities to ever return to again, however this hostel located near Chinatown was amazing! Probably one of the best hostels in south east asia. Its very clean, has a good social area to meet others, near the public transport system and friendly staff!

Stayed for one night in twin room. Easy to find. Very close to metro station. Lovely interior design. Rooms nicely decorated. No windows in rooms but this meant great sleep quality! Nice breakfast- serve yourself toast. 10/10 highly recommend.

Great location, within 2 minutes walk from the centre of Chinatown and the Pasir Seni LRT line. Very friendly staff who were very prepared to take time to advise and make recommendations on the sights of KL. The rooms were very clean, as were the communal toilets/shower rooms. This was the start of our trip in Malaysia and we left... More

Great place to stay, we stayed here on two seperate occasions. The communal area is nice with fast wifi, tv and comfy sofas. There is also free toast, tea and coffee for breakfast. The dorm and toilets were clean and we also had a free locker.
