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...

Would not stay anywhere else in KL


This place and the staff and the location are awesome! Not only is it super affordable and in a cool location you honestly feel like you're home-- I couldn't even be bothered to leave and explore KL! LOL. I will most certainly be back and the free breakfast is tops as well!!!


Only slight downside was it's not fantastically easy to spot if you're coming with the bus station on your left. None of the taxis knew where it was even though in hindsight it's really well located. Fantastic staff, really helpful in telling you what to do around the city. Would def stay again :)
