Kind of a s***hole to be honest. The facilities were pretty dirty and the bathroom seemed especially sketch. There are signs everywhere warning you not to trust any of your fellow guests, which creates the opposite of a friendly and welcoming atmosphere. The location is good, though, being right next to KL Sentral and thus providing easy airport access, so it's fine if you just need a quick overnight before an early flight. If you're doing a few days in KL, though, stay somewhere else.


PROS: Great place for meeting people, free toast with chocolate spread and peanut butter, free tea and coffee, huge fridge to keep your things, huge lockers per bed. CONS: No wifi in the dorm, bathroom smelt horrific of sewage and was always dirty, no soap in bathrooms, beds are old and uncomfortable and the sheets are very old and worn polyester- having to make your own bed means you see all the gross stains on the mattress. AC from 7pm-7am only so unbearably hot the rest of the time.
