The individual door lock is not very secure. The pillow is also a bit dirty.

absolutely would come back here again if I visit KL again


I only stayed here for 1 night to transit through Malaysia and thought the basic 8 Dorm room was subpar, I've seen better hostels. Although security was very good, but the beds were squeaky and the AC's were set up outside the room with ventilations on each dorm room. Definitely the type of hostel you can have a good nights sleep after hitting Reggae bar across the street. This is near Chinatown which is one of the few redeeming factors, but nonetheless good for a 1 - 2 nights stay.


The place was clean and the toliet was cleaned regularly, near to the LRT station so it's easy to go around the city




The staff there are great, always ready to offer advice. Location is good if you happen to like to visit China Town.


Great accommodation if you are travelling with a partner. The room was large, the bed comfortable, and the security good. The atmosphere down the hallways outside the rooms was a little dreary due to the lack of lights, but nothing to complain about. Air conditioned air is moved from the hall into the rooms by a single powerful fan - make sure the fan is running if you want your room to be cool! Location is amazing, close to shopping, bar, transport, everything!


Nice place. Cheap and you get what you paid for. It's clean which is good. Wifi isn't that great unless you're on the top floor


I like it so much!! It's very safe and convenient . Whatever The dorm or single room is ok!!

Great accommodation for the price you pay, only problem was lack of WiFi in my bedroom on the 1st floor as it was too far from the router which is on the 3rd. Other than that, no complaints. Staff were very friendly and helpful with good local knowledge and there was coffee, tea and toast provided every morning. Good location if you're looking to stay in the heart of KL.


I would say average security for the rooms (but to get to the floor to the rooms you need to have magnetic card). However, I put excellent because they offered me to use a locker near the reception where I left all my valuables. Clean air, clean and comfortable beds, perfect location.


Nice enough hits just a dark and slightly dingy space... The staff are great as is the location, good for a short stay.


The staff is very nice and helpful


Really great hostel! Rooms are basic with no window but very clean and well air conditioned! Bathrooms are nice too with great shower also kept very clean! Free tea coffee and water which was good too! Breakfast was toast and served until midday! Also a good little area to watch tv and films as one night was very stormy! Would defiantly reccommend! Only thing is it was slightly overpriced compared to other places we have stayed!


Perfect location, very good security and with extremely friendly staff. Wi-Fi is only on 3rd and 2nd floor, if you're on the1st floor you will not be able to go online in your room, just so you know. I had a single room, small but clean, with shelves and some hooks for my clothes. The mattress was comfortable, I slept quite well there. Shared bathrooms were okay, not super clean but alright. Location is good, make sure you try the two Indian restaurants downstairs: tasty and cheap.

A good location near the KL Sentral, walking distance to the nearby monorail, easy to reach everywhere in KL, many place to eat and store around, just a short stay but have a good experience in overall.


Service was ok. The breakfast more messed up than tasty or worth to mention. For a short night Ok, but nothing to stay longer.


Love the location, and very happy to get toast for breakfast. Only downside was lack of windows in dorms but a very good place otherwise.


Good hostel. thnx


Near to LRT Station of Pasar Seni... Easy to find... Nearby Petaling Strees & Central Market... Will stay again in this hostel...
