We enjoyed our stay, room was a good size, comfortable bed and shared bathrooms were always clean. Only improvement would be WiFi in the rooms, common area was packed and sometimes there was not enough seating for everyone. Would definitely stay again.

The Guesthouse is very comfortable and clean. We had a nice stay. It was hard to get wifi in our room but there were good PCs in the lobby. Only thing we didn't like: Our room didn't have a window.

Located in the midst of Chinatown, close to RapidKL LRT and KL Sentral. Very secure at all hours of the day and night, with friendly staff. Great design and clean interior and sheets ... only gripe is that the dorms are up three flights of stairs, but us travelers need a workout every now and again to keep our good looks in check :)

Nice roof top garden! Breakfast average, drinkable coffee all day :) Easy to get to most places worth to visit in KL. The staff was not the friendliest ...but who cares cause met some cool people in the hostel!

Excellent location in Chinatown, close to Central Market, in between two LTR stations and close to the bus station. Very comfy dorm bed, great shower rooms. Lockers outside the dorm and can't use your own locks. It is also close to the company who deals with Myanmar visas & the hostel staff were good in telling me where an internet cafe was to get documents printed out so that I could do this. Saying this, there are similar, and smaller, guesthouses nearby which are cheaper.

Good location. Very simple. Nothing special but perfect for a cheap stay.

Ensure that your guests checked out at the required time and not at midnight when you disturb other people who were sleeping in the dorm.

Very beautiful guest house, nice and relaxed atmosphere. The location is very good as well, it's within walking distance to train stations, the golden triangle and Central market along with Chinatown. The staff are friendly and there is a great rooftop terrace that could be enjoyed at anytime! I would definitely come back.

Great location, only a short walk from the metro station and near lots of good and cheap eateries. The staff are friendly (although they were not great at directions!) and everything in the hostel is clean. Breakfast was basic but all you need. The wifi was good in the lobby but didn't work past the first floor. Good value for money considering other hostels in this area seem to be a lot more expensive, or a lesser quality.

Only stayed one night, but it was a nice hostel, just around the corner from China town and not too far from the other attractions, the staff were able to help me get around quite well.
