Reviewed June 14, 2013

as your tagline says: help the world sleep better. i did sleep better. very tight space there the bathroom (and i'm asian), but overall im so glad to bump into this girl in thailand that she'd been at ReggaeHouse1 4 months before and highly recommend this place for me, as i now for the rest of the travelers!

Room Tip: some of their room has no window, but who darn care about window, you'll be sleeping 3 or 4 hour...

Very nice hostel located right by Chinatown. Rooms very clean and air con worked really well.

Clean shared bathroom facilities, breakfast (tea and toast) served every morning.

Helpful reception staff, free use of the 2 computers in the communal area. Very quiet and relaxed despite being bin city centre.

You get 20% off the reggae restaurant downstairs which is a nice bonus!

I have stayed in this hostel twice it is always a reliable choice,
staff are great, always a great group of travellers staying there, nightclub downstairs is loud but some how from the rooms you cant hear a thing,
on asia standards the hostel is very clean,
worth paying a bit more money than some of the other hostels in the area

This hostel was OK, a standard simple basic hostel, it was clean and free service of drink and breakfast. A row of hawker style restaurants and cafes, night market are in walking distances. The location is very good, in the middle of Chinatown, only 10 min to LRT Station Pasar Seni. From Pasar Seni Station you can go to KL Central Station, where an integrated rail transportation from KL Central can bring you to nearly everywhere in KL or Malaysia, including KL airport, Singapore and Bangkok.
However, the ground floor NIGHTCLUB was VERY NOISY, the ...dum... dum... dum sound continuously penetrated the solid brick walls, make you keep awake until 3am.
UNLESS you are party lover and/or heavy sleepers, this hostel is NOT for you.

This place is a god sent after trekking about China Town looking for an affordable, clean, safe place to stay.

The entrance door doesn't look much but as soon as you are up stairs, it just feels welcoming. There is only a few private rooms and a couple of bunk bed, mixed dorms, but it is so clean and homely! There is also free use of internet and a nice communal area for guest to chill out. Reggae attracts a nice bunch of people.

Breakfast is basic - tea and toast - but included in the room price. The bar downstairs is a great laugh.

Highly recommended for backpackers in KL.

Room Tip: Dorms are tight for space but comfortable. Its probably better to book a private room to ensure you...

I have stayed here loads of times and have found it excellent every time. I suppose not having a window in some rooms might be awful for some people...but it is SE Asia...it's very common.
I love how structured it is, no nonsense. If you behave respectfully and have manners then you will never have any problems here.
Stay here. Good value and great location.

There is pretty much nowhere in KL that could be called central; the city sprawls like mad, but this is a pretty decent spot to base yourself, putting you within cooee of the Pasir Ris station and pretty much on top of Petaling Street and the incredible night market with its typically-wonderful hawker stalls.
The hostel itself is very comfortable. The showers and toilets are in high demand because there are only two for each sex, and the kitchenette is extremely basic, but you don't need a kitchen when you're this close to Petaling Street!
Best of all, this is a quieter option than the Reggae Mansion, which is just up the street a bit. That one's for the party crowd, this one's for the people who want enough sleep to be able to enjoy KL!
