Great location should be the only reason to stay here. The place is a little dingy, but cannot complain for low cost. Padlock on front gate inconvenient, room walls bare and cracked, and dirty bed covers. Nightclub base can be heard all night next door. Staff was helpful. Kitchen looked equipped, but had not used during our stay.

We paid about $20 for a double room, which seems pretty cheap by KL standards, and it's a good location in the Golden Triangle. The rooms were a bit cramped and dingy, but fine overall, though they were never cleaned and the trash was never even emptied. I'd stay there again if I couldn't find another place for the same...

Fantastic place, clean and great service. We have been told it closes 15th January 2012 due to the local government threats to fine under fire regs, such a massive shame as we really enjoyed it there.

The value is just OK for what we paid for. Actually the common living area on the second floor is vibrant and colorful and conducive to meeting fellow travelers. The rooms themselves are also brightly painted but the flooring needed some work; there was a hole in the floor of the first room exposing dirt and I kept ruining my... More

You can expect much for the money but clean linings and towels! should be something that every place can provide. It did not happen here. The room we stayed in had window but is was only pointed to the living room. The room itself was tiny but that is totally fine for the price. The showers and toilets are a... More

Where to begin? The front gate is always locked, so one needs to reach into the bars to unlock it, even during the day. But the neighborhood is perfectly safe. Then take off shoes, but the floor inside seems dirty. Some rooms have no windows, if you complain the staff get snarky about it. The bathrooms are old and dirty.... More

Enjoyed this hostel, it served the purpose of accomodating a sleep after a drunk nights out. It's that type of hostel. The location is great, Bukit Bintang is nice for nightlife.

Admittedly, the location is excellent. But other than that, this place is very run down. We had the double bed near the front. It was infested with mosquitoes. You can easily see 10+ mosquitoes with your naked eye every night. Room was dusty, unkempt, and dirty. Toilets were crawling with huge ants. In addition, we saw couples with "questionable behaviours"... More

I have stayed at this hostel 4 times when visiting KL and believe me, I have a lot of experience when it comes to hostels...good and very, very bad..! What I love about this one is the location, the atmosphere and the people who works there. I always feel at home, and the price is reasonable. You get what you... More

Didn't sleep at all here. We had a double room on the front. The noise outside kept on going all night, the bed was very small. Shower ad toilet were bad and not clean. Location is great!
