The people that run this place are great! It was a nice little sanctuary from the "crazy" of getting to KL. It's a pretty chill place, with the Head Lady really taking time to chat with me about my plans and making suggestions for my day. There are only two bathrooms/showers, so that put a strain on when the morning coffee kicked in, but otherwise I had a hard time leaving. Wished I could have stayed longer.

great location! right in the middle of the busy area, shops, bars, transport but without the noise! has more of a 'at home' feel to it so if you want to have a quiet, relaxing stay, this is it... but head outside and live it up! grab a drink and sit and watch tv on the cool couch/bean bags down stairs. only 1 shower but there aren't a lot of beds so its alright. i'd would stay here again no question!

Excellent hostel, though a bit hard to find, and a slight walk from basically all metro stations. Still, near markets, and lots of good food. Highly recommend

Nice set up of the hostel. Feels very homey. The location is perfect. Walking distance from one of the main hawker streets with great Chinese food. And right next to a very good Indian restaurant.

Not enough toilets and shower rooms. One on the 2nd floor and 1 on the ground floor for at least 15 persons if full house.

Red Palm is a fantastically clean and well-priced guesthouse, particularly for a single room. Since Red Palm doesn't advertise its location with a signboard, the guesthouse is very quiet since there isn't the continual stream of people rocking up looking for accommodation. I liked it so much I booked to stay on my return to KL.

no ceiling, so it is quiet loud if you can hear everything from the other rooms

The staff here is incredibly helpful, knowledgable, and nice. We stayed over the New Year's holiday and they invited us to join them for a home-cooked celebratory dinner on the patio, which was delicious.
