Really close to the metro station and to the attractions (chinatown, central market, indipendence monumemt...) Personal was very kind and friendly. I shared a room with 3 girls and they were very nice. 2 bathrooms and 2 showers... Clean and seemed to be enough for all (no queue at all... At least for me)

Nice, clean, centrally located hostel. Only complaint is no Wifi in the rooms, which turned the common room into a sea of screens.

Check-in was easy and very professional. We had great roommates and really enjoyed our stay. It was a very safe feeling with 24 hour desk service. The only thing I would maybe have a comment about would be the no wifi in rooms. Downstairs had VERY high speed internet though.

We stayed at the Explorers twice whilst in Malaysia. The staff were all friendly and helpful, right from our first communication, when I confirmed our reservation the night before our first stay. It really is in a perfect location. Directly oppoisite Cinatown and a few minutes' walk from bus and train services. We took a nice stroll to the National Mosque one morning and walked from Little India back to the hostel (50 minutes, not 5 as the map lies!) Breakfast is coffee/tea and toast :)

Loved our stay here - brilliant location, nice common area, awesome rooftop, helpful staff. Only little minus is complete lack of any smaller lights in dorms, meaning a lot of packing/sorting/unpacking in complete darkness. But all in all, would definitely recommend. :)

Amazing time at this hostel. Reception is great. Staff is knowledgeable. The facilities are really comfortable. Being right around china town, it's only a walk away from most major attractions or the bus to them.

The location was really great! It took a minute to find it, but once we were oriented we found it to be ideally located. The atmosphere of the lobby and hostel was really nice. The WiFi connection wasn't the greatest from the rooms, but it made us go to the lobby and mingle (which I consider a plus). The bathroom decoration was kinda cool. And the bedrooms ( we had a private double bed) was simple, comfy, and air-conditioned. Also, the lamp was really, really cool. The staff was friendly.

I definitely recommend this hostel. Very nice location, in the heart of Chinatown and a very short walk from India town and several MRT stations. Lots of cheap restaurants around. The double room had no window but was very clean, as was the shared bathroom. We had a very nice stay!

The only way this place could be better is if they had a restaurant/bar. (Why not open one on the rooftop?) It's a great location and the staff is super helpful... they can help you book tours, nightly pub crawls, etc. They have computers in the lobby, free breakfast, free umbrella usage and it's very clean! Another suggestion - need to add plugs by every bed. I had to leave my phone charging across the room, which makes anyone nervous.

Except for the unperfect Wifi facility (provided in first floor only) it's a good choice to stay in KL

The free breakfast is a fantastic bonus for backpackers looking to save money, the staff are very helpful with ideas for things to do, great experience - we are heading back soon.

i had an enjoyable stay here. the staff are lovely, very engaging and friendly. would have been great if there's wifi in the room instead of always going down and staying longer in the lobby.
