The location is also very convenient to catch buses to both airports, KLIA and KLIA2. Housed in a new building in Brickfields with abundant choices of local foods around and the fusion of colorful cultures, trinkets and merchandise traders, all nested in beautiful pre-war shops with things sold that might be familiar even to our Mothers?

Some come with tinted windows, all have individual fans and lights. Our dorms have double bunk beds and personal lockers and are in a large area with plenty of personal space. Each floor has two or three sharing eco-friendly kampong (village) design hot water shower cabins. Central AC units are placed strategically with blowers to all PODs and all designs and themes that have been put up are chosen as best to compliment and promote our eco-friendly theme, which is, to be simple, and always go green. And when traveling, respect the Earth!

Latest Review

" I was only here for a stopover, and stayed in the 16 person mixed dorm. It was a bit warm with a little smell in there and the door squeaked every time it was opened. It was a perfect location though being just a 5 minute walk from Sentral station so it was very convenient. For the price it was ok for just a stopover but wouldn't recommend for more than one night.
