Have stayed at YMCA many times when passing through KL mainly due to proximity to KL Sentral railway station which is 3 min walk away. However it has become seriously rundown and dirty with apparently no maintenance. Room with double bed and attached bathroom cost 116 MYR but at check.in tried to charge me more despite having email confirmation of... More

I stayed here about 10 years ago with some friends before all the skyscrapers around even existed. At that time it served as a functional, clean and central place to stay. Today at 110RM per night for a 2-person room that is no longer the case. The bed is ok but the bathroom needs a serious overhaul. Ever heard of... More

Located only a 3min walk to KL Sentral it is in an excellent location. Easy access to the airport, city and other attractions. The Indian food near the YMCA is delicious! Beds were comfy and bathroom was basic but all we needed. Breakfast is a choice of 2 options, usually 1 option is noodles. Will definitely stay here again

This hostel is situated in Brickfield, also known as mini lndia. Very convenient for back packers as hostel is only a few minutes walking distance to the main MRT station. For security wise, it is good as outsiders are not easily accessible to your room. However, the room is a bit small and old. The furniture and fittings have worn... More
