Clean and had great beds and rain showers. The key cards were great and the lockers a perfect size for valuables. Breakfast was nice and the coffee/tea was great all day.

One of the best hostels I've ever seen. Really clean and safe, the staff was really nice and helpful and booked our trip to Thailand directly from there. The private room is small but really clean and strong AC. Really good location in the centre and close to the best places to eat real food (Chinatown/ little India) it has a decent breakfast with toasts and fruit. The bathroom is clean and nice too.I would stay again for sure.

It's a very good location. The staff were helpful and friendly. Breakfast was nice and plenty of common areas where you can meet people or enjoying yourself. The building was old but the renovation and decoration was great. Wooden floor and thin walls might be the only weakness there.

Fantastic hostel. We took our 4 children ages 7-13 and stayed in the 6 room dorm. Staff was very helpful and kind. We had a very difficult time finding the hostel but called and the staff came and met us on the street corner. We loved staying in Little India, especially the night markets on the next street. Enjoyed discovering street art and the Jetties which were all within a 10 minute walking distance. We parked our car for two days and paid the street "attendant" 5RM to keep our car safe.

nice and clean hostel with free local breakfast, wifi, maps, friendly staff etc. The room you can book on hostelworld is the most expensive one of the hostel, and way more expensive than the average price of the area: it would be cheaper not to book anything and to just walk in (or in any other hostel around).

This place was nice enough. They have a good eye for esthetics but the dorm rooms are crapped. I think even Spiderman himself would have a hard time getting up to the top bunk.

Dorms are very small, but dorm beds come with nice private compartments including a small locker and some shelves. However, there is not enough space for four backpacks in the room. The place itself looks really nice, an old building and very clean. Location is perfect for exploring the city on foot.

Looking at the reviews of this place we had high expectations. However on arriving we found the lady at the front desk friendly but almost unwilling to help us change our room to a twin room with a shared bathroom. Our room was literally a large wooden cupboard with barely any space to move around, which we paid 77 Ringgit for. 50m down the road was Broadway Budget Hotel which charged 72 Ringgit for a double bed and private bathroom and much better value for money in our opinion.

Nothing too spectacular, but nothing to disappoint at all. The staff was very friendly and helpful with any plans that we wanted to make. The rooms were clean, well air conditioned and very secure. The toilets seemed to have some trouble flushing, but that may have been a temporary issue as opposed to a permanent one.

I have nothing but good things to say about this place. The staff was friendly, professional, and helpful. The dorms were very comfortable and nice. Each bed had shelving, outlets, a light and a locker. AC and fan in the room. Bathrooms were plentiful and included outlets and mirrors and an iron. There's a jug to refill water bottles which is a huge money saver. When I came back late at night after being out they let me right in. Location is great. Free flow coffee and tea all day. Loved it.

First time staying in a hostel and im converted. Booked 2 beds in female dorm. Showers and beds better than most hotels and just 13 pounds for us both. Felt comfortable and relaxed as soon as we arrived. Lovely young man on reception was very helpful and polite. Can't recommend it enough I felt a bit claustrophobic in the 4 bed dorm so would go for the 6 bed next time. They gave a 2 bed private room also. Coffee aval all day had food wrapped in banana leaf triangle for breakfast yummy.
