Centrally located, near city bus terminals, good breakfast and other facilities, spotlessly clean and very helpful staff Highly recommended


Nice and clean hostel. Dorm was good, had lockers and shelf for backpacks.


This is a decent hostel located within easy reach of the amenities of KK. Rooms are a little on the small side compared to other hostels which I have been in, but they are by no means cramped. The facility is safe and secure with access controlled by staff (via a CCTV camera at the door). Staff are friendly and welcoming. Free breakfast and hot drinks are an excellent addition. Free computer access and WIFI.


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.

This is a really good place to meet lots of people if you are traveling alone.


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.
