Very well located with clean, functioning facilities and excellent wifi in the lobby. Room was simple and value for money but air conditioning was quite weak.

The atmosphere is great, not longer after I arrived I was already spread on the couch with my feet up. The staff was super friendly. As I left in the middle of the night to the airport, they told me to take a rest at their couch and use their bathroom and shower anytime I wanted (instead of paying for a room one more night). Naing the receptionist (I think that's his name) even gave me a clean towel when I took a shower at 2 am before leaving. He and Ivy were great.

This place was a but over my normal budget when travelling in asia but I got it recommended to me and it was so worth it to pay a bit more. The staff were among the most serviceminded that ive met during 6 months of travel through se asia.

Not a bad hostel. Located in a good area near central market, china town and a train station to take you all over KL. The staff were nice and fairly helpful. The dorm room was nice and clean and the bathrooms were great and clean. Wifi only in the lobby which really sucked because the hostel is many flights of stairs high. The common area was not good. Didn't give off the best atmosphere to meet people. Overall good hostel for the price though.

We enjoyed our stay, room was a good size, comfortable bed and shared bathrooms were always clean. Only improvement would be WiFi in the rooms, common area was packed and sometimes there was not enough seating for everyone. Would definitely stay again.

The Guesthouse is very comfortable and clean. We had a nice stay. It was hard to get wifi in our room but there were good PCs in the lobby. Only thing we didn't like: Our room didn't have a window.

Located in the midst of Chinatown, close to RapidKL LRT and KL Sentral. Very secure at all hours of the day and night, with friendly staff. Great design and clean interior and sheets ... only gripe is that the dorms are up three flights of stairs, but us travelers need a workout every now and again to keep our good looks in check :)

Nice roof top garden! Breakfast average, drinkable coffee all day :) Easy to get to most places worth to visit in KL. The staff was not the friendliest ...but who cares cause met some cool people in the hostel!
