Lovely little hostel tucked away from the main road. Excellent location - close to LRT or the free buses that go around the city. Super friendly and helpful staff. Free tea/coffee 24/7 and toast in the morning should you need. Extremely safe and secure with buzzer intercom to enter. Only fault was only 1 plug socket in our twin room, but lots of plugs available downstairs to use.

A funky place to stay. I arrived at 4:00am without a reservation and they checked me in asap. A very accommodating team of staff, very helpful. If I return to KL I will be sure to revisit this place. :)

The staff were very helpful giving me tips to explore the city and we're welcoming upon my arrival. Great location near China town, and close to the metro station and train. The hostel is very homey and the beds are comfortable. Highly recommend.

Location: Good, Chinatown Cleanliness: very clean, nice towels and bed linen. Showers and toilets: modern design, clean, no squatting toilet, always enough toilet paper. WiFi: only in the lobby, 2 computers for common use Staff: Chinese woman speaks good English, very friendly and helpful, great host. Night watch was mostly on his phone and not really friendly/helpful. We were allowed to use the shower with towels after checkout (very nice if you have a late flight). Thanks!

Have stayed here on two separate occasions and really liked it. A good location only one stop away from the main train station. Only downsides the lockers are very small and wifi only available in reception.

Great location and fantastic staff! Perfectly clean, and it's no wonder as there is someone cleaning 24/7! Rooms are basic but nice. A bit more expensive than other places close but worth it. Bathrooms and showers are great as is the free breakfast and drink facilities. Wifi is good but only available in the lobby which is the only thing that could be improved on, wifi throught would be perfect.

My room and at least the other ones on rhe second story don't have a window - I just like natural light :) And the rooftop is not as pretty as on the pictures. But the staff was extremely friendly, gave all the infos, that I needed for sightseeing, transportation... Also there was a simple breakfast included (toast, butter, peanut butter, marmelade, coffe and tea) to take by oneself It was very pleasant stay right next to Chinatown, Central Market and chinese tempels, mosques and hindutempel

Great hostel in a great location. 2 minute walk to the nearest MRT station, so it's easy to get to anywhere around the city. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Rooms, showers and bathrooms were clean and the hostel had all the facilities you need- free wifi, breakfast included, 24hr reception, lockers for dorm rooms etc. At this price I would definitely stay here again.

Recommendable place to stay. The location is good as it's close to a major street but half a block away (so the traffic noise is a little less). The communal area is really good but people don't stay there having a drink so you need to ask others to go explore KL with you! This hostel is hotel level clean and the showers/bathrooms look custom designer constructed. Construction works nearby are noisy in the morning (more so than usual KL buzz) BUT should be finished by April 2015.
