Before I came here, i found this hostel online. Was thinking that how noob is the hostel. Well, guess what, it wasnt turned up what you think. It's just simply hostel but great accommodation. I like the room design and the furniture that they choose (but the bed kind of hard). You feel like you're home. You have 3 free...

Stayed for a night here for RM60 & I must say that the beds are really comfortable! Stayed in the dormitory mixed room and it was lovely & quiet most importantly. Towels are provided but you have to pay RM5 for it, so if you're in a tight budget, might as well bring your own towel here. Coffees, teas &...

Really great place to stay. Staff are very friendly: free map, advice etc. Beds are comfortable and are pods with curtain for privacy. It's only 10 minutes from Love Lane so you can go to party without having to contend with this all night where you stay. Free tea and coffee. Cheaper, cleaner and better facilities than most other hostels...

Hi, I've spent in this hostel only 1 night, but I was very pleased. The dorm is split into female and male dorm. You have your own cube there or cheap small room for solo traveller. The staff is very pleasant and helpful. And the hostel is clean. Only what I would appreciate and it was missing here is outside...

This hostel is nice. It has a large common area and comfortable beds. My plug in my bed doesn't work but that is the only real negative. Oh it is in a good location away from all the bars but close to China Town and little India

Had a comfy stay at one of the partitioned rooms in the attic. Sheets and towels were clean, staffs and owner were friendly and helpful! I especially appreciate the house rule to keep unwanted noises down to minimal in the dorm rooms👍

The location was quite alright and walking distant to most of the street art landmarks. The beds are very cute- like capsules within a large room and each unit has power socket and hanging rack for clothes. Cubby hole was clean and spacious, even for a single person. The manager was very helpful to me and my friend trying to...

“The building is quite old so walking on the wooden floor can sometimes make you feel you are as light as an elephant. Some guests do not really pay attention to that (despite the 11pm curfew).”
