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.
The beds are good as they do not creak when climbing up and down the upper deck so as to not disturb other guests at the dorm. However it would be good to have individual bed lights installed as well as the walkway to the respective dorm rooms. In order to aid my vision along the walkway to the showers and toilets , when I switched on the lights, it illuminates all the other rooms
