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.

We wish to clarify that guest had booked the cheapest dorm and it comes only with fan (without a/c). Our guests have many available room/dorm to choose from and most comes with a/c. Our hostel is close to the famous Chow Kit Market, only 2 mins walk away, one can hardly miss it :). All guests checking-in will be give a free customized City/Local Map with all train networks & selected/relevant bus to help/guide them discover the whole city.


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.

Kindly be informed that we have a brand new fridge that work ALL the time. Guest must have seen the old one that is not in use anymore. We charge a minimal amount (USD0.30) for a toilet roll. Go to other cheap hostels and they wont provide toilet rolls at all, even for sale at a cheap price. When toilet rolls were made free, there were a lot of wastage & our toilets get clogged.


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.

Thank you for your review. We are glad that you find Cosmopolitan a great place to stay. Nearest McDonald's is just 15mins walk away, while Burger King has very limited outlets in Kuala Lumpur (just 7 outlets in the whole city). You may phone-order a take-away from McDonald anytime of the day. We look forward to see you again.


excellent staff, clean room, neat, and near to MRT station.
