Staff are incredibly helpful and full of advice for travel in KL and throughout the rest of the peninsular. Area is right next to skytrain and KL station and around the corner from Chinatown so easy to explore the city, or get away for trips. Breakfast included is basic but good (free peanut butter, you can't go wrong!) and rooms and bathrooms are basic but very clean. Would stay here again.

I liked this place. My room was spartan, but it was simple, clean, comfortable, and quiet. The staff was friendly and helpful. The location is excellent; a two minute walk to the LRT station, a five minute walk to the commuter railway, and the Pedaling street market is right around the block. There's instant coffee in the morning, and toast. It worked very well for me.

Great place and lovely staff, but the toilets need to be cleaned more often! =)

We stayed in the private double room. Otherwise everything was ok but the rooms weren't soundproof at all. One could hear everything in the hallway and other rooms. Bring your earplugs!

Hostel in a good location, next to Chinatown. Definitely value for money.

A competent, congenial staff. The room austere but quiet. The hostel all very clean and tidy, a pleasant ambiance. The "breakfast" grim.

+ Excellent location at Pasar Seni station and Chinatown. Clean room, bed and bed linen. Brekfast (toast, butter, jam, coffe, tea) included. - Toilets and showers could be cleaner but it was not a catastrophe. Kitchen area was tiny and pretty dirty and the butter and jam for breakfast was out of date and looking ugly.

Great place, really clean, nice rooms which keep cool, free internet, water, hot drinks etc. In a great location right next to Chinatown. Basic breakfast, bread with jam and peanut butter. Would definitely stay here if I was in KL again.
