This hostel does not look like what it shows in the photos, or at least not anymore. There was no art on the walls, just black leak stains. The room that we got didn't have a window nor any proper airconditioning. Most importantly THE DOOR DID NOT HAVE A KNOB. Anyone can enter the room anytime, and it was mostly... More

This is in a great location, on bar st so can be loud: bring earplugs. Clean and tidy dorm, showers on the mouldy side but clean, there is a kitchen you can use and breakfast can be bought (not included as I was made aware after 4/5 breakfasts) the staff are super nice and friendly. If recommend to stay here... More

Very glad that I found here, met so many interesting people and the staff took me for sightseeing and social nights. They have the basic facilities and a nice lounge, where you can chill out any hassle in life. Highly recommended for backpackers

I traveled to Kuala Lumpur for my friend's wedding, I needed a place to stay which is centrally located and cheap. Serenity Hostel offered that. Located in Bukit Bintang, it took a little bit of finding when I first arrived, that largely was due to the road works around the Buki Bintang Monorail station at the time. The hostel entrance...

Exellently located, as Changkat is pretty much THE bar street of KL. Good for going out, but it will be noisy at night over the weekend. It was sort of annoying there was no window to our dorm, as you either had pitch black or glaring strip lighting - not so good when some people are sleeping and some awake.... More

The place is really well located. It's close to the city center and has a free bus close by. The hostel is in a really busy street,with a lot of bar and restaurants, but it does not get noisy in the rooms. The hostel is simple, but clean, really great WiFi, air conditioner and a simple kitchen (no cooking, just... More

Good location because the hostel is on a main bar street (so a bit noisy) and close to the restaurants. You can walk to the City. - 5 minutes to walk to the two first shoppings center. Nice staff, it was one guy. There are showers and chairs to relax on a little roof so that was funny.

This was my third stay at serenity and it is cheap and in a good spot. The toast for breakfast is welcome and the showers, toilets are working and clean. It is surrounded by lively bars, which is great if you want them, but they make sleep difficult. I didn't like that this time I got bed bugs and that... More

We arrived to the hostel late in the evening and first the staff members were really nice and friendly but that was it. After that everything was about rules and telling you what all you cannot do. For example, you can't wear shoes or slippers inside even though the floors are very dirty. Also, after you do the check out,... More

I would say it worth it for the price that i paid.Considering that bukit bintang is located near to everything.free internet access and wifi.but the noisy from the music of the bars downstairs is little bit disturbing if you are trying to sleep
