This place is popular so it is important to book ahead. I used hostelworld.com and the booking process was easy. You have to estimate your time of arrival and it has to be within 3 hours of what you state on the website or else they will sell your bed space to someone else!!
It is very easy to find - this is the 2nd new hostel and is just up the road from Reggae 1 which sits right next door to the Reggae pub (from my 5 days in the city all of the taxi drivers know where it is). It is a very clean and well appointed hostel. It is quite small but nevertheless it works. The 6 dorm bed I stayed in is small but comfortable. They give you free towels, and a nice blanket for your bed. The bunks are clean with brand new sheets - it is super clean) so no need to worry about bed bugs or anything like this.
There are many young backpackers from around the world including UK, Australia and Europe - most young some a little older. There is free interent available 247 (there are 2 computers). There is also a DVD and TV with a selection of DVD;s to play. The central part of the hostel is a very long and large table that is set basically for dinner where people gathher to chat and eat.
The showering facilities are great - with power shower units which work very well and there is no time limit as to how long you can take a shower.
There also were plenty of staff on hand to offer advice and simply clean up after guests!
Overall a great place to stay - its centrally located 200 yards from Pasar Seni train station and right next door to the Chinatown district.
They will also give you a 20% discount card for the Reggae Pub and Bar - however there are many eateries on every corner if you prefer to sample local food at a fraction of the cost.
