Don't have 24 hours reception. We send them the arrival hour but we have to way two hours before they come
I love the location, can't beat that. The rooftop breakfast place was nice too, we could relax in the morning and hang out with other travelers. the 24 dorm feels spacious too (I felt as if there were only 8 bed). service was good too. anyway I only think it'll be better if there's no carpet outside the rooms (like on hallway to the washroom and toilet)

Ria & Ryan were a lot of help. Good location. 2nd floor needs a serious revamp.

Very nice and clean. Friendly staff arnd very helpfull. I arrived late at night after a very long trip of 27 hours but Ria made me feel right away at home, nice who knows how to act with different people. I would reccomend this hostel for sure. Breakfast included btw and bathroom, toilet etc are very clean. They also provide lockers for your valuable stuff. Nice rooftop to chill out. Would stay here again.
great location close to all transport, directly in Chinatown, but calm at night, staff was vrey friendly, no aircondition in the 6 and 8 bed dorms, just a ventilation and a fan, which was perfect for me, because the temperature was just right, very secure, because every guest gets a keycard with which he can open the doors, hot water in the showers and I got to know some very nice other travellers
I like my stay in this hostel very much that is why I keep on coming back everytime I am in KL. The staff are very accommodating . Special mention to Ryan who always makes sure that the guests are comfortable. It is very near the train station and there are many tourist attractions just a block away. You will also love the food around. So if you plan on going to KL don't look for another place. Fernloft is the name , great value for your money and where strangers become friends!!!
Were only there a short time, but expected more of a friendly atmosphere, having researched before booking. We stayed in a double room, shared bathroom, for which you have to walk right past reception, and through the TV and computer area. Location was good though.
Location is very near to pasar seni LRT station which is in center of the city. Others are ordinary, there's nothing really bad. But be careful, the staff will be at work after 9:00am so if you want to check out before that time, you have to check out one day before, or you have to wait till 9:00am to get your deposit.
3 things why i keep on booking at Fern Loft KL: 1. location - its 5 minutes by walk to puduraya terminal, 3 minutes by walk to china town and 1 minute by walk to mtr pasar seni station. 2. staff - they have friendly and accommodating staff. 3. cost - its cheap yet clean.
We stayed at this hostel as the fernloft in Singapore was excellent. Unfortunately it was obvious that it was the management that made it great not the fernloft chain. The staff were polite but not overly helpful. They don't really seem to carw what goes on in the hostel as two levels are upstairs and separate and the loud music coming from them at 2 in the morning was ridiculous. As was the TV blasting in the common room beside the dorm at 3am. Good location, clean hostel, has potential.
