Stayed there for 8 days. The staff helped me with all my questions and gave me some tips. The place is super clean! The shared bathroom is also pretty decent! It's very near the station too! The place is hard to find at first. Roamed around the streets in the middle of the night for ~30min looking for this guesthouse.

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

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
