The hostel itself is in Chinatown, which is fairly centrally located - it's really close to the main transport hub, so pretty easy to get to the airport(s) and trains. It's also not too far to KLCC (twin towers etc).
Rooms are arranged along a long corridor on both the ground and first floors. Dorms have solid metal security lockers, and plenty of charging points. The place seems pretty secure - there's a code lock on the front door, and all of the individual dorms/rooms lock as well.
The bathrooms are at one end of the corridor. This can make for a long walk if you're right at the other end! Bathrooms themselves are clean, but are the cubicle shower/toilet combo type, so everything tends to get a bit wet. It's a good idea to wear flip flops to the bathroom if you have them!
Downstairs is a small seating area, plus a breakfast bar and TV viewing area. It's quite a nice place to chill out an watch a movie with a few others (the hostel has plenty of its own movies)
Breakfast of bread, jam and coffee is provided. It's adequate, but nothing special.
The hostel is able to book the local attractions for you, at a better rate than the "walk up" price, so it's worth booking with them if you want to go.
There is a fast laundry service as well.
Wifi is available throughout the building, with a router on both floors (though the upstairs one wasn't working when we were there)
