Me and my partner arrived here 10th August 2015, the man on reception seemed a bit moody, didn't give a nice welcome! The room we got given was called 'Autumn' as you opened the door it hit the bed, the room was so small was just enough room for a double bed! Showers were lovely and hot, but could do... More

We stayed in a private double room called 'autumn', I didn't exactly get the autumn feeling but it was clean enough and served its purpose as a base in a good location in KL's Chinatown. The shower area on the reception floor could use some attention as it seems to be a converted kitchen? The rooftop breakfast balcony isn't as... More

Not up to par with the price much like all of south east Asia today. Wifi is OK. Beds are OK. No air con in the daytime. Staff follow you around because they are bored. Staff stare at you . Nobody around good for wifi loners.

If you're looking for a cheap room in KL, this place is great! The staff are helpful and friendly, and most people I met were more than happy to be sociable! There is sufficient room in the lockers to lock away your bag and valuables, the showers are hot, and staff will give you a discount to stay in the... More

After 2.5 years on the road, staying in hostels all over the world I think we found the worst. I would strongly advice avoiding the fernloft, please do yourself a favour and stay somewhere else. None of the management photos are anywhere near a true representation of the hostel, they must have been took years ago. When we arrived we... More

24 dorm is pretty ok. On the floor there are only 2 toilets for all rooms. 3 showers, always full. Hot water was not working. Friendly staff. I would say slightly below average, but very cheap, 1 min from market. Wifi was working well.

This place is just amazing. The location is perfect.The service here is fantastic. If you ask one question you get multiple answers and options, they really go out of their way to make your stay as comfortable as possible. KL is an amazing metropolis of a city!

very friendly and helpful, mostly Indian staff; good enough Wifi, 2 computer terminals, large dormitories with a/c at night, though not at daytime, comfortable beds despite fairly thin mattresses,; I only used the lower bunks which are more stable when turning over. Due to the large dorms (24 and 20 bunk beds) they have quite a capacity. The guests are... More
