Location is pretty perfect. This is a simple spot. It has has a nice tiny main lounge area and a rooftop breakfast setting. Wifi is fast in main area. Although the main thing that i remember from my stay here is the sensational stagnant stink that numbs the nose. It is the thick scent of excessive amounts of that strong... More

Very good location on the front of the Central Market, close to Chinatown and Petaling Street. But train and bus station as well. I stayed 3 nights in a dormitory with a/c, good value for money even if it smell bad between the room and the facillities. Breakfast on the rooftop and good wifi.

Hi Nicolas, thanks for your valuable comment, most of the time our staff inform the guest to leave their shoe and the socks outside the room. Some of the guest leaves their wet towels or shirt on their bed and this will cause an unwanted smell to circulate in the room. Our staff can only inform the guest to move... More

Very good location, just beside bus, train station, right on the corner of central market and chinatown. But the guys on the front desk aren't very good and do not look willing to help you. The room is smelly and dirty!

It was a very warm welcome by front desk, check-in was swift. Within 10 min I was in the room. It looked as iif home away from home. Although th facility is little old and needs immediate renovation. Centrally located 1 min from china market and 2 min from mrt station.

This hostel is right where I wanted to be and near to main bus stop and train station. It had a great breakfast rooftop view, but the Indian people that worked there used to wipe their hands on my washing that was hung to dry.
