It's at a perfect location which near the main attractions in KL. Just like all reviews it's really a home feeling hostel. The guy at front desk had well explained to me all the facilities in the hostel. However, the guy and maid wasn't that friendly, there's isn't a trace of smile on their face and made me feel like...

This place is pretty cool. Nothing to complain about except some staff were really cold for no apparent reason. And when I checked in the person on front desk did not help me with my bags even though I was struggling.

Stayed here for 2 nights and loved it! The rooms were clean and all you need. The hostel itself has a lounge area which we loved as it was a comfortable place to relax with a tv, travel books and computers. Location was also great on a road with lots of other hostels. Would highly recommend staying here :)

I spent 3 nights. Really enjoyed my stay. Staff were super friendly and helpful. They were more than happy to organise me the 7 wonders of KL tour which i really enjoyed aswel as organizing taxi pick ups. Its really the perfect spot to stay if you only spending a couple days in KL. Was walking distance to the bars... More

You wouldn't expect a cosy little house like red palm in the center of a mega city like KL. It's a very charming old shophouse in a attractive neighbourhood. There's a cool terrace in the front, a good kitchen and a comfortable livingroom. It could be a more social place if there wasn't turned on the TV all day and... More

I stayed at Red Palm four nights while dealing with some paper works. It's well located, the GH is very clean, almost over clean I'd say compared to some others I've tried, not too noisy. I stayed in the dorm for 30 RM a night, which is quite cheap for KL, break feast is included, WiFi connection is OK. The... More

I was recommended to stay at the Red Palm by a mutual friend who lives in Kuala Lumpur. Interacting with the staff was easy and they provided extremely detailed instructions as to how to get from KLIA to them. I lost my wallet somewhere between the plane and Red Palm and the staff spent hours on the phone trying to... More

We stayed at the Red Palm for 4 nights. It is not easy to spot as their is no signage outside the entrance but they did provide good directions before we arrived. It has a nice outdoor area where you can sit in the evening and chat with fellow travellers. The main lounge area is superb! Very cosy, lots of... More

Excellent stay, i've been here several times within 3 years and every time there is a good atmosphere, the staff is very helpful and friendly, its clean, close to everything and you really feel at home here, where you can meetup with people. I would especially recommend to stay here for backpackers and people who travel alone.

A lovely hostel with friendly staff who will help you plan your visit. The dorm and bathroom were always clean and there's free tea, coffee and water all day. Theres also a free breakfast which includes cereal or toast. It's quite small which is the only downside if you want to meet fellow backpackers. I had a great stay here... More
