I didn’t book via an app and just went directly the the property at 12:30am after a day of traveling. As I walked into the lobby I instantly felt very welcomed by the owner and his friendly staff. I firstly booked just 1 night. But the next morning, I felt impressed by the friendly and easy going atmosphere and the cleanliness of my room and bathroom facilities so I booked another night before going off exploring the city for the day. For me, this hostel is very well located. Just a couple minutes walk from the train and bus station from which you can go anywhere. Quieter area so you can get a good sleep. Cheap and tasty food nearby. Good aircon, soap provided in the showers, hot or cold water to shower, free toast and jam for breakfast... Just book it!
The only greatest thing about this hostel is the location. It's only 5 minutes walk from the KL Sentral and very close to all those cheap yet yummy Indian restaurants in the brieckfield (Little India) area. Towel & breakfast included. Free WIFI. The lobby/lounge is cozy enough. The room & bunkbeds are so so. I checked-in in the afternoon. And, when I walked on the corridor before entering the room, the corridor smelled really bad. One night stay is enough unless you have things to do around brickfields area for days.
I stayed here for over a week. The location is perfect - just across the street from KL Sentral! Petaling Street - the famous street market - is only one monorail station away and right outside the door there are plenty of local food options. The lobby area is the perfect place to hang out with fellow travelers, or to simply just chill. What really makes this place is the staff! The owner, Wah, is such a nice guy (and a devoted Roxette fan!).Thank you Wah for our interesting conversations! I highly recommend this place and I will for sure stay here again!
No complaints. It's just what i expected. It's located close to the busy streets and surrounded by many restaurants so noises were expected. I got what I'm paying for. But I wish there are more hooks in the little tiny room for hanging some clothes and towel.
After several months of traveling around Southeast Asia and staying at many hostels, this was definitely my least favorite. As soon as you enter the upstairs sleeping area, you are hit by an awful, sweaty smell that never really goes away. My sheets were stained and I woke up with insect bites all over my body. In the morning, somebody literally woke me up to ask me if I was going to Penang and if I wanted to take a tour with them. Somebody else answered a phone call and proceeded to have a conversation in the dorm at about 12:45am. No privacy whatsoever, not even a curtain around the bed like most hostels will have. Most of the people in there were older, and didn’t seem like backpackers at all. A few characters were in their beds watching things on their phones without any headphones for all of us to hear nearly all night long. Weird vibes all around for a place that claims to be the backpackers home. Rooftop had a good view but nowhere to sit whatsoever except for a few dirty beanbags piled up under a small alcove. Needless to say, I did not stay here another night, and you shouldn’t either. There are MUCH better places to stay in Kuala Lumpur. Don’t let the close location fool you, it isn’t worth it.…
