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.

Ok place to stay. The location is a bit dodgy, be careful especcially at night. The dorms have no windows.

Very convenient location when arriving from the bus station. Not all surroundings should be tackled alone by women at nigh. Fancier than the usual hostel. Staff was amazing. Welcoming and helpful. And... peanut butter! Strongly recommend.

This hostel is very clean and comfortable with helpful and friendly staff, especially Ivy who helped me several times to direct me around the city and plan my adventure beyond KL. After visiting other travelers at their hostels in the area, I'm glad I picked Explorers because of its location, staff, great facilities, and quiet and relaxed atmosphere.

only slight complaint was the room had no window.

Room with no window? darkness? If you're a vampire, fine, but i like to have a window, have some light coming in. Hated the unisex bathroom. who wants to see some hairy chest and more in the morning. too much information. the atmosphere, clinical, nobody talked to oneanother. everybody just busy with their mobile devices. Sheesh, talking to real people, now way. Small kitchen area next to the toilet. Yummy.

This hostel has a good position of the city, locating between some sightseeing places, quite near one metro station. But it is a little chaotic in the midnight, so need to be careful once heading out late. The staff and atmosphere in the hostel is warm, feeling so relaxed here. Btw, Wifi only works in the hall, but it may be the good reason to gather people together. I definitely visit it again when I am back to KL.

Great location and staff the only down side was there were only 2 showers for the whole floor and the rooms had no windows which made them like a cave

The staff are so friendly and helpful!!! A fun hostel with so many great travellers. I was originally only going to stay a week but ended up staying 3 weeks because its a cool place to hang out and its only 2 blocks away to the Reggae Mansion hostel which has the best rooftop bar with amazing views over the city and cheap drinks so pretty much went their every night. HIGHY RECOMMEND THIS HOSTEL

Nice hostel with an amazing atmosphere, friendly staff, and neatly clean. However, it is a little bit far from the main touristic attractions like the Petronas and the Kuala Lumpur tower. Also, it is located in an area of the city that is quite dirty and smelly. Despite the location, the hostel is great.
