I can't understand the good recommendations. The only good things about this place is the location, clean bed and cheap price. That s it! There are only 3 showers and 2 toilets for both dorms. Both are ALWAYS dirty with a very bad smell. The dorm rooms and the toilets don't have windows. It feels like being imprisoned. At 7:30... More

Stayed for 4 nights in here was nice place to mingle with lots of people. Near from everything, 3 minutes walk from Lavender station, a few walks to food courts. They served a breakfast too! The staff really nice and warm.

a bit below my expectation. the hostel was in renovation. it's not a problem for me actually, but somehow it makes our movement a bit limited. it was uncomfortable to use the common room with all the painting equipment and all, so we couldn't get a chance to have chitchat with other visitors which is one of the nicest things...

I stayed here for most of September and had a very pleasant experience. I was wrapping up my studies in Singapore and lease expired at the end of August so had 3 different stays in 3 weeks. Ricky, KL, and the staff were very friendly and accommodating. The bathrooms are a little gross, but beds are comfortable and very private,... More

I had a pleasant stay here. I think it really is a dorm, many of long-term-occupants there. So.. the receptionists aren't always there. You should contact them before you check in so they can prepare. Otherwise you'll stand up in front of the front door. -SAFE. The front door is always locked. Once you check in, you'll be given password... More
