Located at stone's throw distance from KL Central (Or Sentral as written in KL) local metro and monorail station, YMCA offers you clean accommodation. The most important thing is the rooms are clean and the staff is efficient. It is primarily a boarding place with a Café at the ground level. We had breakfast in our room rate but frankly... More

I booked two rooms for two nights at this hotel, well in advance for our visits during October 2013. We felt the stay was safe, decent and economical too ! Each time when i wrote email, I was responded promptly and upon our request the rooms were provided on the same floor, opposite to each other due to aged parents... More

Spent two nights and then another night at YMCA KL. Cleanliness alright. Hallway was a smelly, most probably from the common toilet as I noticed there is no ventilation. My twin room had no smell. Breakfast which was provided was decent. While the staff are not on par with 4/5 stars hotel, they could improve. Had to pay RM 2... More

I won't stay at this hotel anymore. The shared bath rooms are very dirty. The heater can not function at all although we already on the switch. Moreover, the door in the bath room can not lock!!! I really never see something like this. My friends and I are very angry for that. I don't know the air condition is... More

Worst hotel ever . The staff's attitude is very bad . And it's very unsafe cuz many strangers who stay over here actually smile and hi to you or they take off their shirt in front of girls to make them awkward . Girls must be very careful about their safety, and never go to the toilet alone as it... More

This is 4th time we stay in this Hostel, because of its convenience to public transport and some Indian Veg (Saravana bhavan) and Non veg (Anjappar) restaurants. The room is big enough for 2 persons, with individual cot and bed. bath room is very small with all basic amenities and very clean. Recommended for short stay like one night.

Some reviewers may not like this one. However, YMCA Kuala Lumpur is indeed a guest house or inn, not a hotel. One should not have much expectations. A double room cost RM110 per night. It is not high. The hostel is located in an area that it is somewhat noisy. but if you close the window and switch on the... More

We have been staying in this hostel for many years but unfortunately this trip was extremely uncomfortable due to bed bugs. The staff were helpful and shifted us to another room in the middle of the night but we noted blood on the linen and did not want to risk another attack so had to shift to a nearby hotel... More

It's a hostal, so chill with your fancy expectations . What you get is what you pay + something like a homemade breakfast. Rooms was OK, a... More

The hotel situated at strategy location and you can easily access to various public transport system in KL such as monorail, public buses (the main bus stop is just outside hotel) and KL Sentral where you can take LRT, ERL or shutter bus to go to LCCT. I prefer the double room than triple room because triple room will be... More
