Our Single and Double PODs are partitioned spaces, giving some privacy away from the main 14 and 4 bed dorms. The PODs have mattresses on raised platforms to give a Zen like feel. Some come with ceiling to floor lengthed tinted windows, all have individual fans. Shared lights goes out at 11pm. Our dorms have double bunk beds and are in a large area with plenty of personal space.

This is to keep the space :

1. Airy- PODs partitioned walls are not full to the ceiling to promote good air circulation
2. Bright- thus no curtains just tinted windows
3. Clean- no shoes and no smoking on all floors
Each floor has two eco friendly kampong (village) design hot water shower cabins.

Central air con units are placed stratigically to cool the floors 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 = less is best, and when traveling, respect the earth!

Toilets and bathrooms are shared.

    I was looking for a convenient overnight stay near KL Sentral as I was catching my international flight the following day. It's very easy to find, following directions from the website. It's a basic,clean hostel. Nice and very helpful staff. I wished I could have stayed another night or two to properly throw myself in the atmosphere of the hostel- I really like the common area (and Platform 2 3/4) and how people interacted. Breakfast was simple,toasts and variety of spreads, tea/coffee.
