Great location! Amazing showers. Loved everything apart from the wifi cutting off; slow and temperamental. Staff tried their best to help, but must have been a server issue. Would definitely stay again!

It's very nice, clean and quiet and 30m away from little India. The beds are very big and comfortable! They have a tv area with a lot of good movies. I like it!


It's at a good location.

Everything is good. Provide breakfast can help you save a lot of money. Toilet is very clean and the bed is comfortable. The only problem is room is small and without window. VALUE FOR MONEY, GOOD

The good thing about this hostel is that the air con is really good, there's a fan in each room and the beds are really solid, not like the rickety beds in some hostels. However, the WiFi was completely down for half of my stay and for the rest it was intermittent- really frustrating. I also didn't get my own room key until my 3rd night because the card machine was broken which meant we were juggling 2 keys between 6 which meant for anyone coming in late, they had to wake someone up.


Had a good stay in this place. The atmosphere is good. Good budget place to stay around the area. Wifi is slow on the first floor. But overall it's a good n cheap place to stay with my lil brother

All over it was a nice stay. But we had to change rooms 4 times for serveral reasons. That was a bit stressful. But anyway its a really clean hostel and they have fruits for breakfast. ;)


Fantastic location, staff are relaxed but a bit frosty at times, but great rooms and clean facilities.


Location is at the edge of Little India and is convenient most parts of the city. The 4-bed dorm room was clean but very small with lockers, towel and no window. No elevator. Toilets and showers were clean. Wifi was very good. Public areas were nice and good attention to detail. A basic breakfast was free: tea, toast, butter and jelly, fruit. Staff spoke English and was friendly.


good hostel!


I got charge RM15 for late checkout 45 minutes. from 12 pm, they should remind the guest at the beginning. The front staff in the evening shift should smile more often :) but overall is good. I like the place.
