The biggest plus for this hostel is the proximity to KL Sentral Station & multi cuisine food joints. The Rooms are clean and the stay is inclusive of filling breakfast and complimentary WIFI. A Good Hostel if you wish to stay in the middle of city and a short walk away from most public means of transport.

1st time at the YMCA in KL. Convenient, for us, safe and clean. A special thank you to Vicky Chong the front office supervisor who was very helpful and understanding. The rooms are a reasonable size but are getting a little tired - paint and a clean of the grouting on the bathroom tiles. Otherwise clean and comfortable. Would like... More

We stayed at the YMCA for about 3-4 days while in KL. The location is good due to proximity to KL Sentral station, LRT and buses. There are multiple food options around: we found at least 3-4 Indian Restaurant in the range of 100 mtrs. The rooms are clean and frugal and serve the purpose of a good location. The... More

Pros: 1. Close enough to KL Sentral station for buses, trains, LRT and Monorail 2. A lot of food options right outside 3. Pretty busy place at night so I wouldn't be too worried about safety 4. There is a mall next to KL Sentral 5. Hot water, air-conditioned 6. Good security (you need access card to get into your... More

Booked by Pagoda - needed a hotel close to central station for early morning departure by airport express - it is a 5-10 min walk and was safe and well-lit at 5 am. YMCA is looking dated with somewhat dowdy rooms but it is clean and safe and perhaps a better option than some of the cheapies in nearby Brick... More

I've stayed in YMCA for 2 nights, because I was staying in KL only for short time. The hostel is very friendly, very-well located (just catch the train from the airport to KL Sentral and the hostel is a 5 minute walk from there), confortable and quiet. The breakfast is very nice and the wifi works very well. The rooms... More

We had booked the ymca for purely transit purpose. We had one night in kuala lumpur and ymca had the best proximity factor for local transport. It's a hostel with basic accomodation, shared bathrooms and a cafe downstairs. Check-in staff are not really attentive if you are trying to check in early although they will store your luggage with tags... More

This YMCA is old, plumbing broken in bathroom, poor hot water, the TV only gets local Malaysia stations, no English, no HBO, no, CNN or BCC. Security guards there watch you like you're a criminal. The only good thing was the Cafe (non-affiliated) where it was unfriendly. From the very beginning the front desk staff member was rude, combative and... More
