Had a pleasant enough stay here. Had a small locker in the room for some personal items. Breakfast is basic but free. Staff were very friendly. Bedroom was on the ground floor. I was trying to sleep around 11pm, few people being loud in the front reception area which was annoying especially as there is a common room upstairs. Otherwise all was fine.

Great facilities, the A/C is a bit too strong, but a great place to stay. The atmosphere isn't the MOST social, but if you're with friends then it's great!

5 minute walk from the bus station, close to everything you might need, friendly staff and comfortable rooms. I was only here for 2 night before flying out to Kuching and it was perfect.

This place was good overall- nice atmosphere and friendly and helpful staff- but the cleanliness was only so-so; the sheets were damp and musty-smelling.

Great place to stay on a budget... Only drawback is slow WiFi but otherwise a pleasant stay! Plus points for putting a charging socket at every bunk bed and providing clean towels!

Great location in close proximity to main city centre of KK with plenty of great food places around. This hostel is clean with many amenities that makes travel a lot more easier to bear (milo machine, delicious fresh coffee every morning, washing machine, televisions etc). Initially planned to stay in the dorm room with my travel companion but they entertained my request to swtich to a private room with no additional cost apart from the price difference of the rooms.

One of the best hostels I've stayed in! Booked for 2 nights and ended up staying 5! From the minute i arrived staff were so friendly. Nothing was too much trouble. Hostel is spotless, the staff are always cleaning. Lovely free breakfast and hot drinks, water and biscuits available all day. Great location near some lovely restaraunts and bars and the night market. Comfy bed, spacious, airy room, hot shower. Free washing machine! 2 hang out areas with a tv with lots of new films. Loved it here!

Most secure hostel I have stayed at. The owners Peter and his wife are great people who have a rich understanding of KK and backpackers. The staff work very hard to keep the reception open 24/7 and the hostel clean. Your bed is even made for you each morning. Free coffee and Milo any time. I suggest to find a way to expand the main common area because it is so inviting. Amazing hostel to meet others and socialize. The second floor feels a bit out of place.
