Poor, dirty, no windows in the male dorm (which you have to walk through to get out)- very smelly & unpleasant, packed in like sardines, smells only slightly better. Don't go thinking 'it's cheap, why not'- this grotty place makes you feel unhappy just being there, & wasn't a great welcome to the grand city of Kuala Lumpur. Just up... More

We stayed here for 2 nights in June. It is near the metro station Plaza Rakyat which you can arrive easily from the central train/bus station for ~2.2 Ringgit per person (with 1 change of train at masjid jamek station). You can only buy one way tickets. In general most of it in KL is in walking distance (golden triangle,... More

I stayed here about 10 times. Always choose this place because it's cheap - but it's not really that cheap, and you can find many other hostels in KL for the same price. The rooms are clean enough, there is nothing special about this place. Dorms are just dorms and the private rooms are just a bed, thats really it.... More

A nice placed Hostel in Kuala Lumpur, not far away from the KLCC and the mainstation. The dorms are with A/C and on a good shape. Clean and ready for Backpackers who need a quick sleep and like to discover the City. Between 3 and 4 Euros per Night only. In total the Best is to relax in the Lobby... More

Terrible place. The owners do not care about the guests and the hotel. I'm in bed, I found mouse droppings. Internet only first and second floor. The room was never cleaned and the bed is not changed even once. All dirty. Repair has never happened before, the walls are not even crash. I never come back. Please look for a... More

Me and my partner booked this hostel at a low cost as most travellers do expecting basics and nothing glam. Disgusting was an understatement, as we walked up to our apartment it smelt of smoke from people smoking on the steps, we had cockroaches in our room so we had to move rooms, the floors were not clean at all....

I've been staying there many times in the dorm over the years. Definetely very cheap, free filtered water, wifi, many bathrooms (pretty clean_, good to meet people. Beds in the dorms are very squeaky, could use a change, but beds are comfy. Staff is (mostly) not very nice. Very low water flow. But all together a cheap place to sleep.

I might not have the true backpacker spirit - I want a touch of quality where I stay. The breakfast on the roof was good but that might also be the only thing. The small rooms were dark and hot and the walls were so thin that you could hear everything. The bed was horrible and the room smelled too.... More
