Nice rooftop bar with very overpriced drinks, ok music and decent view. Plenty of liquor places around to get your own much cheaper. Dont book the city tour as you can do it yourself relatively cheap with the train system there. Nice cinema room that is not free and plays bootleg movies. Tons of food options as well very close, outside of the expensive restaurant. Great AC and the wifi was up and down at times.

Great place to meet people from all over the world, the beds were so comfy we didn't want to leave, the bar can be expensive upstairs but you have to remember you're in KL, however, the drinks get cheaper the later it gets :) Laundry is cheap and done in 3 hrs which is awesome. The rooftop bar alone is worth staying here!

staff at reception could be friendlier, anytime anyone approached the desk they just seemed uninterested and not at all friendly.

One of the best hostels I've stayed in. Met lots of great people at the rooftop bar which has a great view. Very clean, decent enough breakfast, comfy beds, free COLD drinking water and good showers. Easy to get around KL with a LRT stop nearby. Would highly recommend staying here :)

The worst thing - it was not possible to open the window in the room - absolutely no fresh air. Otherwise ok.

Great hostel to stay in. I had comfortable 4 nights stay here as I extended. Amazing views and great place to meet people. Staff were a little straight to the point but friendly enough and the water fountains on each level were a great touch. Very clean hostel with great facilities would definitely recommend and stay again.

Rooms are quite small and top bunks are ridiculously high and the ladder to reach them is steep and could be hard to climb for some. Also be prepared to lock your valuables away (with your own padlock) because the room doors are not locked automatically. Security outside of this is good though - inner doors require a passcode. Bar and restaurant are nice enough, with friendly staff. Breakfast is poor but with it being a "party" hostel I don't suppose many people make it to breakfast.

Absolutely loved this hostel, was apprehensive at first to spend the extra money as it seemed pricey, but was totally worth it. Met so many amazing like-minded travellers who made my birthday one to remember on the roof top bar! Rooms are super comfy, I stayed in a 16 bed dorm but saw the 24 bed dorm and recommend it because it is HUGE! All in all the best hostel I've ever stayed in. Oh and ps- the showers are to die for.

I find this concept of a upperclass hostel a bit strange. It's a lovley place to stay for sure but as a single traveller it's not great for meeting people. The common rooms are scattered and the beds in the dorms are booths so you can't even see if someone is in your dorm to chat to. Well put it like this the 'backpackers' who come here have suitcases. (So it's that kind of person)

A very good party hostel, but with a lot of privacy in the dorms! You can see the cleaning and security staff to every time in the house. Also the breakfast is a little bit bigger than in other hostels.

Amazing hostel for people looking to meet other backpackers, particularly over NYE. Love the rooftop bar & dorm rooms are private and clean, cool atmosphere, relaxed staff, overall an amazing hostel. For SE Asia dorm, it's a little expensive considering you can find clean private rooms in similar locations for much less, but I guess you pay for the atmosphere. Sometimes there's a little too much pushing to go to the rooftop bar, everyone knows its cheaper outside so let people decide.

친절하고 재미있는 직원들, 쾌적한 식당과 옥상 바가 정말 좋았어요 정수기가 설치되어있어서 편리했고 젊은 20대 초반의 사람들이 많아서 유쾌한 분위기가 납니다. 한국인들도 꽤 많이 오시던데 쿠알라룸푸르역 말고 Nasid Jamek?이라는 역에서 가면 진짜 가까워요 좌우지간 재미있는곳입니다 가격도 적절하구요

Great party hostel with good and new facilities. Drinks are fine with reasonable price at the roof top bar. Room number is a bit confusing in the beginning though. It's more like a commercial hotel rather than normal small hostel.

Great friendly, clean and fun place to stay. I highly recommend this place to anyone staying in KL

It really is a party hostel. Every evening is something going on until around 3 am. Seperated shared washrooms gives you a enough privacy. Food in the restaurant was delicous. Unfortuntly the wifi was slow an unstable in our room. Sounds were coming out of the outside wall in the evening and in the night (mice/rats?)

I wish they could let us choose which floor to booked, and when booked in the same name for 4 people of above can be put automatically in the same room, not separately, and making us wonder where the room for our groups will be in every visit. Also from hostelword the info was that our room will not be under the rooftop, but we end up getting under the roof top which the song from rooftop bar is so loud every night. I'm a bit dissapointed with that fact, But all the rest this place is awesome!
