Great dorm set up, especially if you want to just chill out - definitely not a party hostel though. Spacious, good wifi and most importantly, working aircon! Easy to get to from the LCCT airport (shuttle to KL Sentral and then LRT two stops followed by a two minute walk to the hostel). I've stayed in lost of different places in KL and this is my favorite hostel by far. Worth the extra $$$

Overall, the hostel is really nice, the location is great, the architecture of the house is simply amazing especially the backyard which is shared with the really nice café next door, the chalk-doors are funny and the rooms are clean and pretty new. Also, the beds are very spacious! However, the bathrooms are not in best shape, the toilets often were dirty and the shower heads a bit mouldy.

The hostel was very handy to most places in Kuala Lumpur. The area where you could make a cup of tea/coffee could have been larger, but it was great to have such spacious dorms, and an outdoor/indoor feel to the building.

Great hostel and all the single beds are queen size so plenty of space. Staff are super friendly and helpful. Breakfast was cereal and toast so nothing to write home about but overall enjoyed the stay there

Cool hostel. Reggae rooftop bar is right next to the place. Great times and great view at that bar. About a 35 min walk to the Petronas Towers. Would stay at this hostel again.

One of the best hostels If been to. The facilities are great, the beds are comfy, the rooms are big..breakfast is not special but included. I met lovely people at the hostel, the atmosphere is nice and the staff is very helpful and friendly. The location is very good, next to a lrt station and china town is in walking distance.

Loved this place! Will definitely come back whenever I'm in Malaysia. Only gripe was that the airconditioning in the 6 bed mixed dorm could not get any colder. :(

I stayed here 4 nights during 3 separate dates, location is good, be careful of cab drivers ripping you off from KL sentral get a monorail or LRT instead. Main road is busy and noisy but staff will provide earplugs if you request them. It's clean and staff are very helpful although my last room did smell of cheese, there may have been a cheese hoarder in the room at the time.

This hostel is a bit overrated in my opinion. It's quite small; good atmosphere and not noisy. The showers are too small (no place to put your stuff). It's not dirty but the room was a bit smelly. Not sure if i would go there again...

Wifi in room worked well. Stayed on the 4-bed female dorm which was very nice. Comfy beds, huge lockers, reading light and power outlet next to your bed. Not a party hostel (when I stayed there), which I really appreciated. As mentioned before, you cannot control the temperature of the A/C. It was a tick too cold. Location is excellent, bus terminals and train station easy to reach by public transport.
