Very nice big hostel, clean and good service. We were only there for half a day due to a stop over on the way o They arranged for us a taxi to the airport at 4am and one of the staff members slept in the common room to meet the taxi driver and arrange everything :)

Stayed there for three days and don't regret it, perfect location, clean, and friendly stuff, not so social almost everyone is there for a individual purpose or just for a stopover as far as I can experianced. In short: I would stay there again!

Good location got China town. 10 mins by taxi to KLIA2 bus stop. There is shared bathroom and nothing in the rooms other than a bed. Plus they kept adding various taxes and booking fees to our bill. We have stayed in cheaper anduch better equipped places at the other end of Chuna town. Nice enough place with a good vibe, but not really value for money.

Very nice hostel with a great atmosphere and a very helpful staff. Rooms are big and beds are nice. I wanted to extend my stay for one night and eventhough it was full the staff helped a lot so i got a private room with one other guest for the same price. They arrange pubcrawls and the common area is big and good for meeting people.

Place is very clean, rooms and beds are very good. Staff is awsome, very helpfull. They know if you help travellers around they will bring more travellers to them. Really nice vibe, I met allot of people in the common room. They even let me store my Mountainbike there for weeks. Stayed there for 6 nights in total. Also close to central market, china town and metro. Breakfast was a bit boring, a nice coffee would be better then the 3 in one sweet stuff. Really recommend this place!

No towels or toiletries offered, but aside from that cozy place to stay for backpackers. Accommodating and friendly staff.

Great hostel. Good location near Chinatown, Little India as well as the LRT / train station. Staff was very friendly, even when I arrived in the middle of the night. Rooms are clean, no windows though.

The hostel is located in a convenient area in KL, the train and some shops are located close by. The staff is lovely and very helpful in giving some advice as well as informing you about current events and safety issues. Bathroom and showers are clean.

This was a lovely hostek very close to a station so easy to get around. The hostek has a nice common area to sit and meet other travellers. He bathrooms are very clean and the showers are great! There was a free breakfast of unlimited toast which is fabulous for travellers but there is nowhere to cook your own food, although this isn't really necessary as the street food is quite cheap. I had a great time at this hostek and would definitely stay again!

Good location and very helpful staff. Rooms and shared bathroom was clean. Would be good if there was wifi throughout the building and not just on the ground floor. Breakfast is just toast, but was fine to get us started for the day. Unlimited tea and coffee is always a bonus.

All is good, except the fact that it is quite noisy in the morning from the buses outside the building.

One of the best hostels I've ever been to. Location is very good, 3min walk to LRT station "pasar seni" and Chinatown. There are many backpackers who will get in touch in the awesome lounge facilities on ground floor. Shower + Bathrooms seem to be renovated and are pretty clean. If I ever come back to KL, I will definitely stay there again!
