I stayed there for just one night and it was "okay". The place is old, so it makes it looks dirty.. The room is fine and you can rest very well! They offer coffee 24hs. If you want a place cheep, I will recommend you to stay there for two nights, no more.


Excellent hostel! A very comfortable environment, clean, safe and modern. The rooms have power point and lamps for each bed, giving privacy but still permits interaction. They have computer, snooker, x-box. The staff is amazing! Loved every minute.

Hi Victor, It was nice to have met you and that you enjoyed your stay with us. Hope to see you again in the future. Thanks


Nice and secure place to stay. Just a bit of improvement on their toilet facility. The pillows and towel they provide looks old and worn out already. But staff were great and helpful. A nice place to stay if you prefer a chill and quite place to stay while in KL. Will be back there soon.

I arrived at 6AM after a sleepless night on a train from Penang, so I was exhausted to begin with...luckily, although the staff say check-in only after 8, thanks God I buzzed early and they had no problem checking me in. The rooms are dark as they are in the Middle of the halls...it's rather disconcerting trying to get around in the pitch blackness. The bathrooms are clean enough but overall the rooms are kind of dingy...the trash was overflowing. I loved the staff and upstairs balcony!


The staffs are great, efficient. The room are spacious, as compared to other hostel that I've been to. A shelf to put our stuff, a small desk behind our bed, good value for money! The shower are okay, but it would be great if they provide toiletries too :)


I stayed already five times in this place, because i like it very very much.!!


there was no power socket in my room

Was my second visit-- totally love this place! Simple, cozy and affordable...right next to the train and the staff is lovely. The WIFI is good too.


Great location, very easy to use transport to get any where or to walk places in KL. Really handy having computers available, good wifi and we were able to leave our big luggage there whilst we explored the islands for a few days which has been very helpful!


Not too bad for the price, cheap and central but dont expect too much
