Really great hostel, I would definitely stay here again. Awesome location, so close to transport! Very friendly staff and a safe, friendly environment.
don't book a double room. it feels like sleeping in the dorm just with some wooden walls around you, that don't reach the ceiling. if somebody turns on the light you will wake up as well, if somebody talks during the night, you will hear it as well. we had lots of BEDBUGS in our first room. We changed the room next day. the new room had less bedbugs but we still got biten during the next two nights. -> the dutch? guy from the reception did a great job! (not so much the other ones...)
Wonderful place. Reception was very flexible as to us arriving at 3AM and leaving at 4AM two days later. The common room is vast, with many things to do and people to meet. Wah, the owner, and his staff were all very informative and friendly. Especially recommended for a quick entry and exit to/from KL at odd hours. Well connected to every part of the city from KL Sentral. Would stay here again.
The "pods" are partitions and you can hear the whole floor, When someone turns the light on it goes on on the whole floor. Too hot. I booked a single room and paid the extra but no point as I could hear the dorm next to me as well as the other rooms on the floor as the walls don't reach the ceiling. Ok if you want to stay in a dorm, absolutely pointless booking anything other than a dorm there.
I'll liked the cleanness and despite the fact i stayed only 24 hours in KL i met 3 people of the staff and they were all very smiley and welcoming, I enjoyed it.
It's walking distance to KL Sentral - a big plus if you are arriving late or leaving early. Will be even more convenient when the construction is completed. Private rooms are very small and basic with only a mattress, pillow, blanket and a lamp. But what else do you need. I wasn't able to get up early but there is complimentary breakfast served. Both staff are very friendly. The public area is very cozy also. Wifi was good.
I always enjoy my stay here. Access s great - position makes it very convenient to reach, and leave.
The staff should ensure all booked rooms must have functional lighting. Also, since some of the customers may not be able to bring sockets for charging as some gadgets may have different sockets. Therefore the hostel should have provision for this even for rental if not for free use. The bathroom is quite disgusting, should be improved with tiles snd concrete walls.
