This is definitely one of the best hostels I've stayed in. The hostel itself is really good and clean, the staff is really nice and helpful, and the location is superb. I'll stay here again, without a doubt, the next time I'm in KL.

Convenient location is near a subway station. The room was on the ground floor. It was clean and large with a bunk bed (single and double beds), table, lockers, towel, a sink, and a window. No elevator. Place was very comfortable and good attention to detail. Upstairs toilets and showers were better. Wifi was good but slow at times. A basic breakfast was free: coffee or tea, toast, butter and jelly, fruit. Staff spoke English and was friendly. Thevi was very nice and helpful throughout our stay.

A great hostel. Very welcoming and very modern facilities. Good computers and wifi which helped me with onward travel plans. Close to good food places and the staff were all very friendly. A great base to explore the city and very comfortable beds. I know where I will be returning when I pass through KL again

The staff here are super friendly and helpful and make your stay really easy. They understand that although you may not be able to check in when you arrive you'd still love a shower and somewhere to rest for a while and so point out all these facilities when you arrive. The rooms are nice and big and cool with big lockers. The breakfast is simple but enough to get you going for the day. Would definitely recommend this hostel and I'd happily stay again :)

Simple and stylish, quiet and unique. Close enough to everywhere. Good but expensive cafe attached.

The hostel is good, clean and in a good location, but for the price - most expensive hostel of a 5 month travel in SE asia- we expected something more (some rooms smelled damp, towels were not included and breakfast is the minimum).

It's an awesome place. Only thing that was missing was own toilet but not a big deal. Atmosphere was great in this hostel. All the travelers were hanging out together in the evening in common areas.

I had a really good time here. The location is excellent; Chinatown is within a 5 min. walk from the guest house. I stayed in a 4 bed mixed dorm and it was very clean and comfy. The staff was beyond helpful at all times. I liked the fact that they have a 24 hour reception, with the security guard helping out at the reception at night. He was beyond helpful when I had to check out at 4:30 a.m. and then getting me a taxi to the airport in a very timely manner. I would definitely stay here again.

Could not get enough of the place!! facilities where fantastic, easy to meet other travellers and the staff where extremely friendly and helpful. And the Food tour!!!!

A really nice hostel, well set out. Nice beds, good showers. Free breakfast is great as is the location. The air-con could be better though!
