Very cozy and friendly hostel, If you are looking for something chill, come here.


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.
