It is my second trip to Kualalumpur n stay in the same hostel. Actually I plan to try another hostel near Kl Central which is the central of bus and train in KL. After check some hostel nearby train station, finally i come back again to this hostel. One thing that I like from this hostel is the safety. There are many rules written n this i like....:D. The receptionist..are very friendly and helpful , clean room (with new bedcover..as I remember)..clean bathroom (my 2nd priority). However the variety of the breakfast are still same as 2 years ago..

Room Tip: Deluxe room is the best choice, it has attached bathroom with reasonable price

The biggest plus point for this hostel is the amazing location. Real close to KL Sentral.This means easy access to any mode of travel.

As far as the rooms are concerned ,they were clean and the beds were quite comfortable. The bathrooms were also clean though were a little small. The staff in-charge was quite helpful and there were no major issues with check-in out check-out process.

Breakfast was also decent. No issues with it.

All in all a Decent place to stay. Not bad.

The YMCA Hostel in Kuala Lumpur is very conveniently located, just across the KL Sentral Bus Terminus. The hostel is very simple and clean, however, the disinfectant that is used to clean the rooms / corridors, gives one a feeling that one is in a hospital. The good thing about this place is that it is safe.

Room Tip: The rooms with common / shared toilets should be avoided.

This is a rather basic hostel. No frills whatsoever. But I was told that they were going to upgrade the place soon. They were doing some maintenance work when we were there. But it is pretty safe for a woman if you are staying alone. It's value for money.Lots of food around this vicinity. But food served in the cafeteria is in small portions. Towels were clean. But I feel that they could upgrade a bit and charge a bit higher. Dont want YMCA to lose its appeal to the young travellers in a shoe string budget.

Room Tip: I doubt they have a fitness center or a swimming pool. As I said, it's value for money. Don't expect much and you wont be disappointed.
