The staff are very accommodating plus the location of the hostel is very strategic. The rates are good enough and you get free breakfast too!

Everything was perfect, excepting the homeless person screaming outside the entire night (albeit the fact that only certain rooms affected, and there wasn't anything the staff could have done about them). Nice team, good location, good feeling. Definitely would stat again!

Only stayed 1 night so can't comment on atmosphere. The place is very clean, fantastic beds and the staff were great. A bit of a pain to get to from the domestic flight terminal but worth the trip. Will definitely go back when in KL.

Very nice place. Friendly, helpful staff. Air conditioning was great. Rooms were clean and spacious. Free breakfast and coffee/tea was appreciated. Walking distance to almost everything, or close to metro if you don't want to walk. I would definitely stay there again.

Everything is clean, beds are confortable and there is a lot of storing in the dorm. We appreciated the sink and mirror in the dorm. We arrived at 11 pm instead of 9 pm after a long and late bus trip from Cameron Highlands. We were given a cold welcome. The employee at the reception seemed to be really in a hurry and made us feel really bad to arrive at that time even thought the reception was only closing at 12 pm. But the staff during the rest of our stay were helpfull.

The staff were wonderful recommended a great restaurant and allowed us to leave our bags all day while we checked out the sites. Due to road works it was difficult to find the hostel. It was so clean and had an awesome layout. Would definitely return next time in KL.

The staff are pretty friendly and informative. Very much willing to share what is around the area and guide through the map at the reception. They would also respond to any request promptly.
