Nice backpacker hostel. This place is big though. If you're looking for the small cozy experience this place probably won't work for you. No wifi in rooms, only in the lobby - where there are couches and tables. Staff was really helpful and nice. Walking distance to transportation, tourist sites, good food.

We stayed three nights at the Explorers Guesthouse and Hotel and found it to be very welcoming and pleasant. The staff were very welcoming an friendly as well as a wealth of knowledge for the disorientated traveler. There is free WIFI on the ground floor and two computers that are also free to use. There are no printing facilities but the staff are able to point you in the right direction. The Guesthouse is just down the road from Chinatown and the Central Market, great spot!

IT WAS CLOSE TO THE CHINA TOWN,CONVENIENT FOR SURE BUT ALSO A LITTLE MESSY AROUND THE GUESTHOUSE.THE RECEPTIONIST COULD SPEAK ENGLISH,MANDARIN AND CANTONESE WHICH ALWAYS GIVE HELPFUL INFO ABOUT YOUR TRAVEL PLAN.MIXED ROOM WOULD BE A LITTLE DISTURBED WHILE YOU WANNA A GOOD SLEEP AT NIGHT.

We stayed here for 8 nights, a long stay looking at the coming and going. The hostel was clean tidy and staff were friendly and helpful. However hardly slept at all as the noise from the road and other guests was unbearable. There is always a min of 4 busses parked outside with drivers beeping and shouting. Walls are paper thin and other guests do not keep noise down. Good location as by metro to get around city easy. No wifi in rooms was bad too.

An otherwise excellent stay was marred by the very low quality of the overly soft mattresses. I did not get a good night's sleep because I woke up with a backache. Please invest in high quality mattresses.

It was a bit of a noisy place at night, not from people having fun but from slamming doors and noisy people on the hallway. But it was clean and the staff was extremly helpful and nice. A great place to stay all in all..

Great hostel. Clean, good sized rooms. Excellent staff, very helpful and friendly and always smiling. Only slight downside is that wifi is only available downstairs, which means area is not as sociable as it could be as people are just sat looking at their phones! Just a small point though, overall it's an excellent hostel.

Great location and friendly staff. Rooms and bathrooms were always being cleaned. I stayed in a 6 bed dorm which had a lot of space, was not cramped at all.

It's a really nice hostel to stay in. It took us a while to find it though. Close to china town and 10 mins walk to the metro, really nice staff and good facility. Comfortable bed and pillow, I would totally stay there again!

The location of the hostel is practical for tourism but it is not that nice. It is not the hostel fault but the impression we got from Kuala Lumpur was of a city that is dirty and disorganized and the reason might be that we stayed there. The hostel itself is nice and clean, the staff is helpful and has a 24 hour front desk.

A very chill and relaxing atmosphere with clean baths and toilets. Staff are friendly and very approachable. Being in the middle of two train stations serving 3 different lines, and with Petaling Street (Chinatown) just across the street, and the start point of the KL Marathon being a 5 minutes walk away, this location is excellent. Will definitely stay there again next year!

Very friendly staff who meets your special needs as much as they can, in particular breakfast arrangement before the usual hours, in view of those running the recent standard charted KL marathon.

Very clean, and pretty decent breakfast spread. It was unfortunate that they only have internet in the lobby, and I didn't like the fact that I had to put down a deposit for the key. But all in all, a nice place to stay!

It was impossible to find, no one had heard of the road or hostel when I was trying to find it. As I was flying it out early the next day I got a private room, it had no window. It was literally a box with a bed in it. They offered no map on arrival or information on what was close by. At best an average hostel

Hostel is just two minutes from LRT away. Facilities are very clean. Lockers are outside of the room which is a bit annoying but there wouldn't be any place for them in the dorm. Lockers are beeing watched by cameras. Lounge area is really cozy and perfect to chill. Breakfast consists of toast, butter, peanut butter and various types of jam. Coffee and tea 24 hours. The old lady on the reception is quite friendly. However, lack of interest for the younger generation behind the desk!
