The hostel was really nice for its price. The staff was nice and provided a lot of information for sightseeing in KL. Location is good, really close to MRT station but my Malaysian friend told me that Chow Kit area, where the hostel is located, is shady part of KL. So be careful although I did not feel unsafe at all.
close to the monorail station. Easy access to the main sites, especially close to the Petronas towers.
Nothing provided, neither blankets nor toilet paper but what do you expect for the price. It is great value for money
Excellent security, good showers. In 12 bed dorm near every bed there is power socket which is awesome (especially after hostels in Vietnam, where you sometimes cannot find more 4 in total (in 12 bed dorm).Didn`t like that I was charged for printing out boarding tickets. Don`t remmeber how much it was but I wasn`t happy, that`s for sure. Especially cause so many hostels would print few pages free of charge, just to make you happy and satisfied with the hostel. But definitely good value for money
great place with the cheap price.

Very cheap hostel but you get what you pay for. No blankets, no toilet paper ... Also the atmosphere was the poorest so far in SEA .. Location is quite alright but off the radar. It was fine for the last two days to overbridge the time and the cheapest option. However, if you want to have some fun and a nice time in KL, there are loads of other places (of course pricier)
Beside Chow Kit monorail so it's easy to get around. Everything is pretty average but for the price it's definitely good value.
staff could be more pleasant.few more chairs in tv area too,would be nice.but decent overall.
First everything seemed to look ok: room was clean and wifi worked fine. Just before our check out I've discovered that my shoes (left on a shelf next to the hostels door, it's hostels policy) disappeared. Some drunk guest could took them (an old sandals!), so I ask the stuff for help: there is a lot of CCTV in the building. Unfortunately noone was interested to help me. More - when i came back next day I found that they took off my note about missing sandals. There was no single "We're sorry"..
This place is right next to Chow Kit, which is convenient. If you are staying here because it's so cheap, beware that you're probably not really saving any money as you have to pay extra for blankets, toilet paper, adapters, and even use of dvd's in the common room. It's an okay place to sleep but I was glad that they upgraded me to the female dorm and I will probably look for somewhere else if I stay in KL again.
I stayed in the female dorm. This and most of the hostel spaces were quite clean. The exception is the bathroom. It wasn't ghastly, but it could have been better. Abdul, the part-time staff person there, was very helpful. He showed me how to get to the Batu caves an gave me advice for Thailand, my next destination. The one annoyance about the hostel is how many things they charge for: towels, blankets, toilet paper, etc. I've stayed in cheaper places that didn't charge for these things.
Friendly staff, clean and value for money I recommend it
Safe secure place to stay and so near the monorail that it is easy to get around KL.
what I can say is that, the hostel cosmpolitan is absolutely a perfect budget hostel to everybody, especially for tourist like me.

I like this place. leaving from here, crying. in the beginning have not figured out in the area. especially after Singapore. but we are used to. and liked it. at this price is a great place. nearby shops. Many places to eat. Mr. Djingle hello! Thank you.
Very clean, cosy and relaxing hostel with an excellent staff and great location! Recommend it!
Stayed in the 12-bed dorm and it was incredibly warm! Two fans for 12 people is not enough so prepare yourself for some swetty nights. Overall - an okay hostel for the price. The staff was a little bit weird and had trouble with answering questions like if there was any markets anywhere in the city and how to get to the bus. Could stay there again if i had to though.
DO NOT STAY HERE!!!i have stayed in some bad hostels but this one is terrible. I am now riddled with bed bugs, their fridge didn't work at all, the staff were not overly friendly, you have to Pay for toilet roll, its dirty and the ventilation is so poor that the around the rooms start to smell (no windows)....but it's in a good location.
Clean, friendly staff, perfect location: far away enough to experience the "real Malaysia" without Mc Donalds and Burgerking but close enough to visit everything within minutes; even the Hop-on-hop-off Busstation is extremely close and the foodstalls+nightmarket directly in front of the hostel offer everything you like. Would stay here again.
excellent staff, clean room, neat, and near to MRT station.
