Located only a 3min walk to KL Sentral it is in an excellent location. Easy access to the airport, city and other attractions. The Indian food near the YMCA is delicious! Beds were comfy and bathroom was basic but all we needed. Breakfast is a choice of 2 options, usually 1 option is noodles. Will definitely stay here again

For security wise, it is good as outsiders are not easily accessible to your room. However, the room is a bit small and old. The furniture and fittings have worn... More

I stayed two nights at the YMCA during my recent visit to KL. Very neat, centrally located. Spacious rooms. safe for all types of tourists. But the only problem ais the attitude of the front office staff. They are arrogant and short tempered. They should be given proper training, otherwise all the positives of the hostel will turn negative

Neat hotel with very basic amenities, bath room doesn't have a health faucet, which is a big deal for us from INdia..Toilet got blocked once but was sorted out soon. security is good as each floor has a security door. good for just...
