The location is right by China town and Central Market with easy access to the station, so it's easy to see lots of things from the hostel. The place feels safe and clean. The Internet connection is good but it's only available in the common room. The staff are super friendly and helpful. They know exactly how to answer any question you have. I actually went back to stay at this hostel when I arrived back in KL. Very nice and comfortable. Great job!

I really enjoyed my stay at the explorers. The rooms were clean. The staff was amazing. One of the older ladies at the front desk was really kind and made me feel right at home. The staff members were always willing to assist.the hostel had a great vibe and I met some amazing people. I would definitely recommend this place. The only downside was that the wifi was only available on the first floor.

Amazingly friendly atmosphere, helpful staff, convinient location in the centre of Kuala Lumpur. I'd like to thank all the people that work in the hostel for their extreme patience (they were woken by us several times in the middle of the night as we had to check in or out at very inconvienient times), still they rememained friendly and helpful :)

Good place to stay for 1 night or so, facilities are clean and comfortable. In the heart if China town so close to stations etc. It's not really great if you want to meet new people as the atmosphere is more of a transit hotel nature. I would consider staying again as it was decent value.

Good place if you want to be in the city center. The whole area is a bit depressed though.

I had only a brief stay here, but it was a nice one. Everything was great, my only complaint would be that there isn't a ton of space in the dorm rooms to put your stuff.
