I had very nice staying: the hostel is clean, the staff is very friendly and helpful.
The place is great for people travelling alone and it's in a good location with the main city being a train ride away. Staff weren't flexible when it came to negotiating nights of stay as I wanted to reduce mine from 3 nights to 2, which didn't happen, but other than that it was a good.
Kinda over-priced for a (damp) double room with no window, mixed toilets and showers. Breakfast is just toast. Good instant coffee though. Staff seemed pretty miserable.
A nice clean chilled out hostel. It's near to Chinatown and one stop away from the central railway station (easy to get to). Beds are ok, very basic. Bathrooms are clean. The only downside is that there isn't much going on in terms of atmosphere, as a lone traveller it took some effort to get others to engage, maybe that was just while I was there. It's very quiet at night, so a great place to get some sleep! Free tea and coffee all day and toast available in the morning. I'd stay there again.
Great hostel, really pleasant to stay in. Only minor quibbles I had were that the room doors don't auto lock (just for extra security) and that sadly my room had no window. But overall a very clean pleasant hostel to stay in.
Great place to stay in Kuala Lumpur. Great location in the center of China Town. Close to local transport which makes it easy to explore the city. Double rooms are small but clean. Only downside was the lack of sockets in the room. There is no wifi in the rooms (only in some rooms on the first floor). Room without window has no noise from the street. and ensures a good rest. Bathrooms are very clean. Breakfast is basic but good and all ypu can eat.
Love this place with the rooftop corner provided for relaxing.. worth visiting and the hostel is very clean..
Very good hostel, it terms on facilities. Bit expensive but worth it. Hated walking all the stairs haha, very good wifi on bottom floor, and good breakfast
Good place to stay with a great location close to the central market. Lockers provided for everyone is great. Showers and bathroom facilities are also well maintained.
Fantastic location, great helpful staff, awesome living quarters, clean beds, surprisingly nice and beautiful bathrooms, righteous rooftop terrace, great common area, overall a beautiful clean happy and well kept establishment.

Our flight got cancelled and when i emailed the hostel they emailed me that it was not a problem to change the booking. When we arrived in the morning she offered us towels to take a shower since our room was not yet available. Also we could have breakfast which was really nice after a long flight. Rooms are clean,with aircon,nice showers,good wifi and computers in commonroom,long breakfast and a friendly helpfull lady! Had a good stay!
STAFF VERY PROFESSIONAL, HELPFUL,VERY KIND, BREAKFAST COULD BE BETTER,IT'S VERY BASIC IF I COMPARE WITH OTHER GUESTHOUSES, TOILET- DOORS MUST BE CHANGED, THEY ARE DIFFICULT TO OPEN OR CLOSED AND,IN MY OPINION, UNSAFE FOR THE PERSONS
All good! Location is good. No window in dorm- not bothered but some one picky would be.
We had a great private room with air conditioning that worked wonders. Everything was clean. The location is right next to china town and they have a buzzer to control entry. Internet only works on the first floor though which meant most people in the common area were just taking care of computer business. Would recommend.
Nice place, nice atmosphere, staff was okay, it jus that they dont have elevator, if u stayed at 3rd floor, it was a challenge with all the bags
I liked a lot this hostel. Well located just 2 blocks away of a metro station and beside chinatown. I have red some conplains about the hostel only having wifi on the ground floor. I guess they do that so people dont stay up all night downloading torrents or watching youtube draining the broadband speed. If thats the reason it worked perfectly, the internet on the ground floor is superfast. My only complain would be that breakfast is just a little too poor,but I guess if you are not fuzzy its ok
The friendly lady at the reception helped me to catch my bus to the airport at like 3am after I almost overslept. They have got really nice showers and all day tea and coffee facilities.
