“Cool pods! Crazy customer service and overall a good vibe”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 19, 2013 via mobile

Love Lane is a great location. By Malaysian standards the staff are pretty helpful. In most places we stayed, reception couldn't tell us anything helpful about transport, amenities etc. but Charlie and the gang are great! cool pods although you can hear your neighbours through the thin walls. Sociable set up and free wifi. Great value for money!!

Stayed here for a few nights in Oct 2013 before I headed to Langkawi. This is an excellent clean modern hostel, which is great for meeting new people. Its located centrally right near all the attractions (temples, little india, museums, shops etc). On the downstairs area you have the reception and the bar/cafe area, they do reasonable priced food and drinks here and this is where most of the backpackers relax and meet new people in the evening. Overall the staff are very friendly and make you feel really welcome.There is only one women at reception that always looks really miserable, which is the main drawback I have of the place. Everyone else is great though and they are always so smiley and up for a chat! Upstairs you got a tv lounge (with lots of dvds and books), two computers you can use wiith free wifi, lockers and this is where all the dorms are located. The dorms are very spacious with lots of privacy. Every bed has there own curtain, light and electricity plug. The toilets are clean and tidy, with there being a nice power warm shower. I would highly recommend it to everyone.

Room Tip: 12 bed dorm is great and the cheapest

Stayed here for two nights in September 2013. Location are good, staffs were very helpful -got lots of recommendation and info, breakfast was nice. They're also clean and for me privacy is the big plus point. Having a curtain per bed is so convenient. I will definitely recommend this hostel to my friends and family if they happen to go to Georgetown. And oh, this hostel is also good for solo traveler because you can socialize easily with other traveler.

I stayed at this hostel in a female dorm. The rooms are funny because you sleep in a kind of box, but very comfortable! Even you sleep in a dormitory you have a lot of privacy. Sitting at the tables in front of the hostel is always a lot of fun, it is very easy to get in contact with other travelers.

Room Tip: You need to book this hostel some time in advance!

Decided to stay here after being in Reggae Mansion KL and although it isn't as bright and lively as the KL one its not bad! Beds are ok, although there was only a 4 bed dorm left so not very sociable! The bar was good. There is a little Malaysian man who tries to be helpful but does become a bit annoying haha although he did help carry our bags up the stairs

Reggae is a great place to stay

Loads of facilities - TV, DVD, computers, nice showers, pool table, bar, restaurant and AC

Quite good value although can get cheaper in Georgetown

Only a few problems:
1. Breakfast was horrible and finishes at 10. Stale toast with jelly rather than jam on top. Had it once and never again

2. Rude receptionists. They have a sign infront of them saying "smile at the guests" but they certainly do not

3. Weird / creepy customer service guy called Charlie. Always trying to hug and kiss us and invited us to his pool. Creep

4. Booked in for 4 nights but were made to leave after 3 due to their online bookings taking priority. Very annoying

Overall a really good hostel but a few niggles unfortunately

We stopped here for breakfast & thought it was great value. RM6.50 for sausage, beans, 2 eggs, toast & coffee (real coffee!). The bar/restaurant was nice with great A/C. What made the experience better was the fun, excitable old man who served the breakfast - very entertaining.
