It is nice hostel to live in but they rarely clean the room on daily basic. But it is worth the money
Well the hostel is amazing.. ambiance is fantastic and a great place to meet other travelers. None the less, the room I was assigned to had no windows (I dont know if all rooms are like this) and had an AC running 24/7, making the room rather stuffy and sometimes even smelly. Ventilation was very poor. None the less, the hostel was clean and the location fantastic with a good staff. I would appreciate it if the hostel authority improved their ventilation systems.
Very chilled out, clean hostel based in a very good location. It's near several LRT stations, bus and close to Chinatown, Central market, and other sights. I have no hesitation recommending it and I would stay here again if in KL. On an aside folk, get your heads out of your phones and tablets and talk to that person beside you!
Please attach some photo so that people will not confused with twin and double private room and breakfast menu can be changed a bit..other things are so good...staffs are friendly and helpful,location is strategy(near LRT station,near Petaling Street,fast food restaurants)..
Really well located with good transport links. We stayed in a twin room, the aircon was amazing in the heat! Good backpackers, staff were friendly and helpful.
Absolutely lovely stay here! Basic but rooms, communal areas, and bathrooms were always very clean and showers were great. Staff were super friendly and helpful!!! Spoke very good english and loved to answer questions with helpful advice. Very safe needing to be buzzed in and felt very homely. Really close to the train station and markets/food close by. ggae Mansion just down the road was a good place to go out to. Awesome hostel, would definitely stay here again! Thanks to Ivy and Sunny!!!
A great place to stay if you want to live in the middle of town. The staff are very helpful. We loved staying there, but we never used the roof terrasse, because it was too warm and not so good fasilities.

Wow! Great hostel, near to metro. Chilled out common room where I actually got work done.
Great location but not much atmosphere. Very clean.
Really great location, friendly staff, you won't regret your stay. Their taxi driver Dragon was really lovely.
Second time staying at this hostel. Good location, clean rooms at a very good price. Can get a little noisy at night though.
Absolutely lovely place. Very safe. Good access to wifi on the ground floor. Breakfast consisted of toast with different spreads. They sold water over the counter for 1.80 ringgit. The bed rooms were lovely and clean as were the showers and bathrooms. Perfect location between two train stations and right next to Chinatown. Would definitely stay here again if ever in kl again

The boss and staff are very kind and nice. It has a very convenient location, two minutes to central market or Chinatown. It let me feel safe. It's clean and tidy. Free breakfast,coffee and tea. If i go to KL again, i will also choose explorer hostel.
Brilliant hostel in a great location. Staff were very helpful and let me leave my bag there for 4 days at no cost. Would recommend and will stay again if I return to KL. Thanks guys for a lovely stay.
it was my 2nd time to stay there, I wouldn't go back if my 1st stay wasn't good, right? The first time I went there, I was doing a solo travel, but on my 2nd time, my friend was with me. She loved it there as well. I really love the location. It's near the Central Market where you can shop for affordable items and souvenirs. Also, the owners are really nice and very accommodating. Keep up the good job! :)
Great hostel conveniently located a few minutes walk to Petaling Street and Metro station. Rooms were clean and comfy, good A/C and very clean bathrooms. Staff were friendly. I'd recommend this place to any budget travelers visiting KL.
Safe, clean, generally quiet, kind staff, and seems well maintained. In Chinatown which is very near a train stop and big bus station. A bit dodgy late at night which is true for most of the city. Three floors and moderate size common area. Surprisingly nice bathrooms and showers for a hostel. I stayed in a private room with no windows which kept me away from the sounds of honking buses out front which is common during the day.
The location of the hostel puts you right near the major KL tourist attractions, making it incredibly convenient. I arrived very late at night, and the staff member manning reception was very welcoming and gave me helpful tips about where things were in the hostel and where I could find food late at night. The facilities are what you would expect from a basic hostel. I like that it is a quieter hostel. Wifi is only available in the common area, but otherwise works well.
Really enjoyable stay, great staff, location very central next to Central Market, and the trains a few minutes walk. Would always stay here if in KL, and would recommend to anyone.
