I dont recomend this hostel.


60%

If you book a night here, expect to pay about that plus half. The listings are old so you have to pay more, and pay extra for toilet paper, and pay extra for sheets, etc etc. The location is close to public transit and easy to reach, unfortunately in a pretty bad part of town. p.s. if you smoke, you are going to hate the smokers corner which is in the very hot stairwell with no window or fan and only children sized plastic chairs to sit on. not very social.

Given the previous reviews we were expecting more from this hostel. The location is not near the backpacker area and hostel staff aren't very useful in telling you where to go/how to get about. The hostel itself seemed seedy from the outside with lots of men hanging around and there were men just sleeping in the corridors on the floor when we woke up in the morning. The rooms smelt strongly of damp and paint and there was no hot water or toilet roll provided in the private rooms.

This hostel has the feel of an average urban house of some family. The living room is nice. However, the street at the front of the hostel looks kind of messy.

Hostel Cosmopolitan is a great place with excellent staff. The location in Chow Kit is close to all the fun places to check out in KL, but still retains ties to the Malaysia of the past with the big Malay Market right out the front door of the hostel. Hostel Cosmopolitan is where I'll be staying on my future trips to KL. Great meeting place for people from around the world and I especially enjoyed the Muslim friends I made.

Nice place that is close to the monorail.

Not bad. Not too good. The point is you got what you pay for. Not more nor less.

This is my second time staying here. I met the hostel owner this time and he is quite nice, as is Abdul, the foreigner who works there part time. The other staff members are frosty but not mean. The bathrooms should be cleaner!

It was wonderful to stay in this hostel. The rooms are quite nice, with comfortable beds. The bathrooms may have a few problems, but it's still fine! They have a very nice kitchen, and a lovely living room. The atmosphere is wonderful, and the staff is quite helpful and always fair. The price on the internet and the price at the hostel counter are different if you have no booking though...

The hostel is decorated with many maps and look very nice. It's clean, but there is no toilet paper and bathroom is not so nice.

The room was without window and there was mold on the wall. This we did not expect. It was not possible to sleep without running AC because the air in the room was so bad. On the other hand the location of the hostel and the security was good. I think, for 55 ringit per night you can not expect better conditions in KL. Outside we had better hostels for 40 t0 70 ringit.

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

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)
