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).


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 :)


Very close from monorail (5 minutes walk) if one know how to use this transport, air cond of room is nice, sleep well, kitchen is clean and staff can understand english well.


it was a good environment and staves were friendly.

It is ashamed that there are no windows in the bedroom bu i guess n much you can do about it - apart from that nothing to say, it by far one of the best place I have stayed in Malaysia


Very nice hostel in Kuala Lumpur ! Very clean. You can find Elena at the réception, she can help you for everything : visit, transfer, all what you need ! She makes very good massage too !


It was okay but more expensive than they advertise! You need to pay extra for everything except the bed inc. toilet rolls! It's not in the best part of town but easy to get everywhere. Communal areas were not conducive to meeting new people, it was okay but I wouldn't stay again. KL was good though!


Great location (next to the monorail station, seveneleven and fruit market). Rooms are clean and air conditioning works well. Sadly toilets aren't clean. Hostel is generally very cheap, but there are no facilities for free. You have to pay for toilet paper, ac adapter and even for bedding. Maps are for free, but their quality is terrible. Staff tries to be helpful;)
