Met lots of great people here - the rooftop bar is great. Staff weren't great and our room did have to be changed because of some problem. Would go back, though!

Good value for money. I stayed one night and found the hostel to be clean and well taken care of. The staff are friendly and the rooms are cheap and cheerful.

Decent place to stay in KL for a decent price. Close to Paser Seni MRT station and the GOKL station (free bus round the inner city). 12 bed dorm is ok, not the greatest beds as they are quite squeaky. Nice rooftop bar in the evenings and have been doing free BBQs on saturday nights which makes a good atmosphere.

I just stayed here for a night, but I wish I had stayed at this hostel more. The hostel was good on cleanliness. Atmosphere was very friendly. I luckily went on Saturday when they had this rooftop barbecue party. I met quite a few people during the party and all were friendly. I found one of the staff member a bit unfriendly but others were very hospitable. All in all a big thumbs up!

Really nice hostel would stay again. Had private room and it was very nice. Bed was comfy. Only thing would be that the toilets need to be cleaned more apart from that it was very good.

Staff were good, which always makes the difference. Stayed in the single room with air con - beds are comfortable, although small. Great rooftop bar - nice social hostel.

The hostel has a really great atmosphere. The common area and the rooms look nice. China Town, Central Market and some temples are within walking distance. The nearby Metro station makes it easy to also visit other destinations. Easy internet access via computer and Wifi was good in both the common area and the rooms. All in all a really good place to stay :)

While the facilities were good, the service from the staff were quite poor. While on the Hostelworld site the staff states friendly, helpful, assists with airport dropoffs, they were neither. The staff could not help us with directions to a restaurant, nor did they assist us with any service to the airport and declined to provide us with even a cab number. Moreover on our last day there, the AC broke down and water was dripping from the ceiling to the beds. The staff did not care when informed.

A part of the hostel is freshly renovated, the other part where i had my room was not. My room and floor was very shabby. So try to get a room in the renovated part. Everything else was exceptional good and i would go there for another time.

Best hostel in all of Southeast Asia. Nice dorms, clean facilities, comfortable beds, great location, close to China town and good food and of course an amazing rooftop bar with the best bar tender ;) felt like second home to me from the first minute on. Can't wait to go back!

great stuff, breakfast, restrooms sometimes didnt have toilet paper. 8bed dorms were a little hot even with the AC but it is kuala lumpur. Overall good place to stay!

The new rooftop bar is the perfect hangout to meet friends. China town is very near by and some awesome Indian food! Recommend it.

The re-views of this hostel are really good. Now not 1 to usually moan but it's rubbish. The signal delux room has no aircon and the sheets are disgusting/ BB The women on reception is not help full at all, and makes you pay 3rm for a towel. Also I came in at 4.30 in the morning and the night guy, was giving me abuse. Saying' why are you stopping here and coming in so late. Go to bed! Then in the morning proceeded to give me abuse and follow me down the stairs. Bad hostel don't stay

Wonderful atmosphere! The staff (especially the owner and Mike, the bar tender) were friendly and made us feel welcome. This hostel was the best part of our stay in Kuala Lumpur. If you are a backpacker looking for a place to meet other travellers or just chill out over a nice cold beer in good company, this is a place for you.

Great place, great people. Good chance to chill out and explore the city. Great food places nearby. Great value for money, definitely. Will go again. Roof top bar, excellent way to relax and share stories.

Love this hostel. I extended my stay because I enjoyed it so much. The new rooftop is amazing and the free bbq on a Saturday is a huge bonus. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. Some of the showers are better than any hostel I have stayed in. Wifi is very good.
