The location of the hostel is practical for tourism but it is not that nice. It is not the hostel fault but the impression we got from Kuala Lumpur was of a city that is dirty and disorganized and the reason might be that we stayed there. The hostel itself is nice and clean, the staff is helpful and has a 24 hour front desk.


Overall is good.

A very chill and relaxing atmosphere with clean baths and toilets. Staff are friendly and very approachable. Being in the middle of two train stations serving 3 different lines, and with Petaling Street (Chinatown) just across the street, and the start point of the KL Marathon being a 5 minutes walk away, this location is excellent. Will definitely stay there again next year!


Very friendly staff who meets your special needs as much as they can, in particular breakfast arrangement before the usual hours, in view of those running the recent standard charted KL marathon.


Very clean, and pretty decent breakfast spread. It was unfortunate that they only have internet in the lobby, and I didn't like the fact that I had to put down a deposit for the key. But all in all, a nice place to stay!


It was impossible to find, no one had heard of the road or hostel when I was trying to find it. As I was flying it out early the next day I got a private room, it had no window. It was literally a box with a bed in it. They offered no map on arrival or information on what was close by. At best an average hostel


good location,close to chinatown,central market, many other places of interest and pasar seni station,where you can catch the KL bus wich leads to you many other places for free. Staff was nice,free breakfast and very clean. recomendable for shure.


Very pleased with our stay. The only thing was that there were no windows our the room.


Hostel is just two minutes from LRT away. Facilities are very clean. Lockers are outside of the room which is a bit annoying but there wouldn't be any place for them in the dorm. Lockers are beeing watched by cameras. Lounge area is really cozy and perfect to chill. Breakfast consists of toast, butter, peanut butter and various types of jam. Coffee and tea 24 hours. The old lady on the reception is quite friendly. However, lack of interest for the younger generation behind the desk!


nice cool place.

The first night I arrived I was invited out for food with a few other guests. An employee of the hostel, Sonny, took us out to Chinatown and we enjoyed a dinner at the night market. We had a great time out and all the staff were friendly and helpful here.
