Really enjoyed our stay! Right next to china town and the central market. Also very close to a train stop so easy to get to the rest of KL. The rooms were lovely and bathrooms very clean. Also loved the free tea, coffee and toast. Staff were very friendly and welcoming. If I go back to KL I would stay here again!!!

Hostel was fine. We were only here for a 7 hour stopover so didn't get to experience too much. Good bed, air-con and shower, that was about all we used. Looked like a nice chilled out common room too.

This is a great place to stay! The location is within walking distance of the trains, little india , Chinatown, and a few malls, and it had a comfortable, welcoming atmosphere. All the staff was great, especially the day time manager (I'm sorry we didn't catch his name). I would highly recommend staying here!

Great facilities and nice staff. A heads up - the rainforest tour they recommend is quite expensive and not very good. You're much better off just getting to Taman Nagara yourself and arranging there.

Nice hostel with very friendly staff. Located close to China Town, LRT and free busses. They have free breakfast, but I rather go outside for a better meal (you can only have so much toast with jam before you want something else). Big dorm rooms, however there is no windows in the rooms, so if you are used to wake up to daylight, it might be difficult for you. A good place to stay :)

Clean,safe,and close to chinatown which you can buy and eat at reasonable price. One thing I needed was plugs at the bathroom. I couldn't use hair dryer.

Amazing staff. Very friendly and informative. Gave lots of maps and information and answered every question I had with thoughtful additions and took into account my interests. Clean and a good environment to meet people. Nice morning breakfast and coffee/tea available all the time. Though there is no wifi in the rooms, it ended up being a perfect excuse to cozy up with tea downstairs and watch tv with new friends. Wifi is excellent on ground floor.

Thank you so much for helping me out with minor things that were above and beyond what you really need to do. I originally booked for 4 nights and went down to 1 as I changed my plans to go to Singapore. But you allowed me to use a locker for the full 4 nights and also use your showers when I got back...as I had to catch my long flight to Europe that night. You guys rock...really appreciate it!! If I'm back in KL, I will be back! :)
