Excellent location for those who want to see KL on foot, five mins walk to Chinatown, 15 mins to the KL Comms Tower or central city. This is important as KL hasn't quite mastered the art of public transport - so we found walking or taxis much more easier. There is a 7/11 a short walk around the corner to pick up some groceries. The hostel itself is clean, modern with friendly staff and extremely secure - it didn't really feel like a hostel, more a modern hotel, with a relaxing courtyard to chill and use of free wifi. Breakfast is basic, but sufficient until lunchtime - toast and coffee/tea.
I stayed in a double private room as I was travelling with my gf (a fact that didn't seem to phase the staff, and I was grateful for)
On our departure staff arranged for a taxi to LCCT airport for 110MYR.
If you are looking for a more upmarket surrounding I would suggest staying somewhere closer to the Petronas Towers.
