Nice hostel with friendly staff. Free tea and coffee all day, toast for breakfast with a good selection of jams and spreads. Computers to use free of charge and a well-equipped communal area with book exchange, games etc. Showers smelled like wee but I guess that's the disgusting guests and the hostel did a thorough clean regularly. Overall a pleasant place to stay.

Enjoyed my time at the Explorers! Great location. No windows in my room so it was so dark all the time! Loved the rooftop! We went up there at night, nobody was there! A little oasis in the city. Perhaps a little introduction to the area would've been nice, but can't complain too much!

Our stay was really nice- the room, shared showers and toilets were also very very clean. Staff at the desk were really helpful! Thank you!

Great atmosphere, good place to hangout, sofa with TV like home, 24/7 coffee tea, basic breakfast, free towel with stay, rooms are all you need good size, bagage storage, staff are so friendly, wanted to stay another night but they were fully booked and the staff told us we could come back at any time to hangout and have tea! Awesome place to stay! No complaints at all! We compare all our hostels to how good this place was! Oh yeah and 2 free desktop computers! Showers are awesome too! Enjoy!

Great place only issue was it being fully booked in advance! Book online before you arrive if you turn up it's unlikely you'll get a place.

Always clean. Staff always helpful. Dorm room was large and comfortable with excellent ac. No wifi in the dorm room (on 3rd floor) but the common area was a nice place to relax and meet people! Breakfast was basic but abundant (toast an jams). Location has chinatown, train connections, the lake gardens area all nearby, within walking distance!

We had a very nice time at Explorers Guesthouse where we stayed 3 nights. It was clean, the staff very friendly and helpful. There are buses in front of the door to the central station, it's very close to Chinatown and the Central Market, a nice area. All good for us !

The staff were friendly and helpful. The bathroom was clean all the time. Breakfast was ok (just a toast with jam and coffe or tea). It was loud on the corridor at night... Couldn't sleep during the whole night because of noisy tourists!

nice quiet oasis in the middle of the hectic city. Beds are comfy and clean sheets. There is a lot of space and enough showers etc. Staff were friendly. Room I stayed in nice and dark and quiet, great nights sleep!

Great stay here. Friendly and helpful staff. Clean room. Great rooftop. This is a fairly quite hostel - when we were there - but its less than a block away from Chinatown and only 5 minutes from the LRT. LRT is only a 7-8 minute ride to Petronas Towers. Met some cool people.

This was by far one of the best hostel i've ever been to, it has about everything u need/want to make the best of your stay in KL. Two streets away from Central Market/LRT subway. Rooms, showers and WC are spot on! Very nice personel, both EVIE was it? and the guys in the night/takeovershift. Even got the oppertunity to shower again before leaving KL, 8 hours after we checked out!!!!! So cool and so much appreciated :) Did lose my beautiful Suunto Outlander watch though while rushing abit, so..

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!
