“Great time, awesome rooms, well worth the money”
Reviewed May 27, 2013

Reggae mansion was really good and worth it for the price that you pay for. I had a really good time. I stayed in the private room, which was reasonably big actually, wide screen tv and the air-con was working fantastic (good on hot days, of course. haha) The breakfast was superb, to me. Toasts, noodles, fruits and juice. I was smiling from ear to ear! Oh, and it tastes good too!

Security is good. Oh! The rooftop bar is a must go. Cheap drinks and good music. Though i wish they played more reggae than club music to live up to the mansion's name and suit the environment. But all is good. The courtyards are a really nice place to just chill out and read a book, or just smoke your lungs away while admiring the mansion's peaceful ambiance. Really, it was awesome.

I don't have anything to complain about actually. The front desk staff were really nice too, cheerful and hyper. I jusssssst don't really fancy one of the female front desk staff who was impatient with the guests, just brushed off whatever questions we had and was super rude with other guests too. Sarcasms works the best to shut her up though. That got me really pissed but thankfully everything else in the hostel was superb. Worth another visit definitely! :)

Friendly and helpful staff, spotlessly clean rooms and bathrooms, comfortable and private capsule beds (with own plug sockets, light, mirror and cupboard), relaxing rooftop bar, great atmosphere.....would definitely stay again!

Well located and almost resembles a high class hotel when you walk in with doormen, nice decor, a restaurant and ice cold air con. You get your own little private quarter in the form of a hole in the wall with locker space below. Very roomy in the dorms too. Great little bar upstairs with view of he KL skyline. Breakfast is pleasant. Fresh cold water from water fountains. Always seeing cleaners clean around the place. The little things make a difference when travelling and this place really impressed me.

Awesome. Top notch top class. Walking distance from KLCC. Professional competent staff. Kickass rooftop bar. If you are four people take a 4 bes mixed dorm and have a private room for your group. No complaints about this place whatsoever!

This is a party hostel with noise, they advertise the Hostel as this so do not expect any different. There is signs in the hostel also pointing this out! The hostel is very impressive from outside and downstairs. The rooms are very very small. We had a dorm with two beds (Bunk beds). The ground space from the door to the bed was about 2 meters by 2 meters probably the smallest room we have stayed in! The room really let the hostel down, we didn't sped much time there as a result. The bathrooms are clean but often very wet from showers. Hallways are very hot as there is no air con. The location is good with a train station stop approx. 2 min away. Breakfast is average, first morning scrambled egg with local dish and toast etc. Second Morning was beans and fried rice. (strange Combination!) Finally the staff were not as friendly as some other reviews made them out to be. The receptionist was on her mobile every time we passed the reception. They changed the door code to the rooms and didn't tell us but when we asked they assumed we should know the door code which they changed that afternoon!! All in all not a bad hostel, it is for party people who want to sleep in.

Room Tip: Request the first floor away from the rooftop as the rooms below the roof top will not sleep!!!

The check-in was smooth and fast and they assisted me up to my rooms with special code for each room. They have different tours and event going up everyday. I did enjoyed myself to a certain extent.

I had mixed feelings for the front desk staff. They were nicer to Caucasians and were not as friendly to Asians, which kinda suck. The bathroom was also always wet because the shower and toilet were combined.

But overall it was pretty good, the environment and the dorm.
