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

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 :)

A great place for a visit in KL. The location is great, beside Chinatown and in front of Pasar Seni station. Only 10 minutes walk from the main square. There's a quiet but really friendly atmosphere and the stuff is amazing and really really helpful, you ask them anything you need and they will give you a hand in the most friendly way. Our double room was basic but comfortable, spacious and nicely cool thanks to the fan and a/c in the corridor. We'll definitely stay again if we go back to KL!

Great little spot close to train station and China town. Area might be a bit dodgy at night for those living in the first world. Regards to the hostel, you get more than what you pay for.

I was just in town for a visa run from Thailand...the location was excellent as it was right by the sky train that went towards the Thai embassy. The rooms were simple but more than sufficient for my needs...the staff were all super friendly and accommodating!

It's very comfortable to live here. Washroom is very clean the room is tidy. I had good sleep here Location is perfect and it's near from Chinatown so I could enjoy breakfast in Chinatown. And it's only 3 minutes walk from the LRT station. I will definitely recommend this hostel to my friends who stay in KL.

Located near a metro station but is kinda far out from everything. That being said, great rates though the stairs are steep. Would recommend.
