The staffs there nice and easy reachable even during midnight time as they have staffs work for 24 hours. The place was neat and clean, bed and room was tidy everyday. The location was good, easy to search and it is near to bus stop. The only unforeseen thing is that one of my member's luggage was open by his dorm member, luckily nothing missing. Apart from that, I still enjoy the stay at Masada Backpacker

+ masada backpacker has very good location. it's convenient to go to everywhere. the airport bus stop is just 5 minutes' walk, and it only will take you 15 minutes to go to the airport. + it has very strong wifi. + the staff is very friendly. i am so sorry to mistake the check out time, and they tried to contact me but failed, then they packed my things. and i didn't lose anything. + it serves breakfast, simple but delicious. + room and toilet are clean - a little noisy

It is a very clean and pleasant accommodation, with free coffee and milo all day long. Though it was located in a small lane, sometimes it would be a little bit dangerous while walking back from downtown. If don't get outside too late it would be ok. Very quiet, and the staff are all so nice. It's a very pleasant place.

I only stayed for a short time but I really enjoyed it nonetheless. The staff were very kind in that they arranged a gluten free breakfast for me before I headed off to climb Mt Kinabalu. Thank you :)

Really nice hostel if you're in KK. Good showers, comfy beds with 2 pillows! (luxury) and free tea/coffee/hot chocoloate. Also there are two computers and free wifi. Would definitely recommend.

Excellent stay and pleasant experience with the friendly staff. The blankets are super comfortable; almost like a 5-star hotel! Breakfast and coffee is superb. Would had been better if my bed would had come with a plug point for charging my phone (only realize mine was the only one without).

Our stay at Masada was really good. The staff is nice and very helpful. Walking distance from the night market and from the jetty to reach the taman abdul rahman islands. Very clean and nice atmosphere.

Super clean hostel with a great breakfast. Staff can set up any excursions you may want. Felt safe and comfortable the whole stay. Air conditioning was super cold which was a huge plus.

This is the sort of place I have in mind when I imagine a proper youth hostel. The design encourages people to socialize, the staff is trained to give the information we all need, solid breakfast, clean, etc. Highly recommend while in KK.
