Massive bedbugs in every bed we looked through in our room. When we talked to them they got mad at all of us for complaining and said there was nothing they could do about the bugs. They did nothing to clean them other than vacuum. Seriously, this place is ran terribly. There are much better hostels in the area that... More

The location is arguably great as you are within spitting distance from the LRT, provided you are a good spitter. Wifi is surprisingly good despite being shared with nearly a platoon of snails (read: backpackers). Walking distance to Chinatown and the best food in town. The first thing that assaults the nose is the musty, stale smell that hangs in... More

Stayed here for 3 night while visiting KL. Dorm was very clean en the bed was ok. They serve 'continual breakfast', meaning coffee toast en peanut butter. Location is perfect, just behind the main street of Chinatown. A lot of good places to eat around here!

Don't worry about the rooms. Everything here is clean, the lobby is really cozy and comfortable to hang out. The staff is young and helpful. What annoyed me is the bathroom situation (1 toilet, 1 toilet + shower and 1 shower), because basically the middle toilet is flooded all the time since used as shower (heater doesn't work here too)....

Stayed here for a total of 4 nights at the start and end of our trip to Malaysia. Convenient location with pretty clean rooms. The rooms are not the most spacious, but there is enough room to move and have your stuff. Can't really complain for the price. Breakfast is toast served on the rooftop. The staff were very helpful... More
