i stayed there last weekend with my friend. The hostel doesn't look nice from outside, but once you get in, it's definitely worth what you have paid. I highly recommend this hostel to those on budget trip. :D

Good: cheap Short walk to train Bad: ac cools to about 25-28 degrees Water leaking everywhere in bathroom No tp without charge Overall: If youre going for cheap, its totally doable, but be prepared to sacrifice a bit on your expectations. If youre going for a nice experience, then you might wanna look elsewhere. I personally would stay here again, but i don't expect much from the cheaper hostels on this site.

Close to monorail station food stalls just in front, but area quite dirty and seedy. Lockers, kitchen, wifi available but sanitary facilities weren't inviting.

The hostel is pretty sketchy because the building itself is quite rundown but the price and staff were amazing! Location is alright because it's conveniently situated next to a monorail station and near a free bus stop. Lockers provided and you must enter a code to open the door. I do recommend this hostel and would stay there again.

I almost never saw the staff smile - especially the woman. You have to pay for a blanket and pay for toliet paper - in 9 months of travel I've never had to do that. However I would stay here again - good location with good food around. Super close to the metro. Has its own kitchen as well. Lots of information on the walls.

Hostel Cosmopolitan is a real bargain, and for the price a very good option for backpackers. It's also near to the monorail so it's easy to get around KL.

I found this Hostel via HOSTELWORLD and the price was unbeatable. That's why I decided to choose this hostel. Everything was fine, except the fact that the entrance to the 12 bed dorm was open. There was only a kind of curtain, that anybody else could enter this area who lived in the same level. That's why the security was not the best, but at least their had a locker for everybody. There is also nice local food close to the hostel. All in all I can recommend this hostel.

Great hostel

The entrance could be made to look a bit friendlier from the first level. I know they are up on level 4 but still its a bit of a put off when you first arrive. Up on level 4 was nice, reception, lounge area, kitchen where you can cook if you want to. Staff were friendly enough. A very short walk from Chow Kit monorail and its very easy to work the monorail. If you arrive at the airport and the monorail is still running I would suggest to get this from kl sentral instead of a taxi

minus for rooms without windows

It's a bit far away from city centre, but if you really wanna know sth true KL, it's the place. ( Unfortunately I don't like KL at all haha) The staff are nice. One point that I don't like about this hostel is the room doesn't have windows at all..... That make you don't wanna get out of the bed and feel quite dead inside the room. The wifi is good and working well, even in room.

Thanks for your comments. We are actually a mere 2km away from Petronas Twin Towers, just 5 mins bus ride on the GoKL free bus. It would be very expensive to stay in a hotel just infront of the Twin Towers :) We are lucky to be served by two GoKL free bus (red line & blue lines).

The hostel is nice and clean, the staff were really helpful. The common area by reception was very quiet but has the potential to be good, just want to invest in a modern television

We were staying in private 4 bedroom and had a good time here. It was less people then I stayed last time. I still like here.

Well equipped kitchen - you can cook your own food, close to Chow Kit Monorail station. The fan room was very hot at night and without any air circulation, air con room was much better, thus recommended.

We are glad you fully utilized our kitchen. The fan room is for those who are on very tight budget & are willing to forgo a little comfort. Most of our guests however do not have any problems.

"COSMO" was my 1st stop in Malaysia. Its a basic, simple and quiet place in a nice local neighbourhood that tries its best to make people on a small budget happy. Lots of helpful information and especially the receptionist Elena adds to the atmosphere of the place by organising kitchen events :)
