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

The lady didn't even want to open the door before checking our reservation, thanks god we had printed the booking, otherwise she would have denied it . Just before getting to the hostel, the lady started yalling at my friend since she didn't see the notice on the wall... More

Apart from the rooms being very clean and the hostel being in a great location I was very impressed by the kindness of the gentleman who runs the hostel. When leaving the hostel to get to the airport to fly back home I left a painting behind and when I got hold of him with the slightest hope of him... More

I'd encountered while I was checking in, that I couldn't bring any documents related to booking and they said that it couldn't be done without any proven digits like reservation number and..etc. So hardly I got checked in after doing internet with their Macbook. It is better to be said that this hostel is for the locals, not for the... More
