The hostel is very near the bus station and everything else. The staff is very helpful, they advise you about trips you can do and provide you with maps. Kitchen is quite equipped but could do with some cleaning. We stayed four nights and got our laundry done for free which was great. There are some amazing views from the roof terrace - great when you're having breakfast. Overall very good value for money and good choice if you want to spend money for adventure not for accommodation.
The staff is very caring, informative and helpful! We took the opportunity to go to the sauna (which is free if you stay 5 nights or more) and we definitely recommend it! Breakfast is great, we really enjoyed that! You cannot ask for a better location as there is a huge supermarket less then 10 mins walk and it's close to bars and restaurants if you want to party! The hostel is very clean and the beds are comfy! Kitchen could do with more saucepans etc but other than that - perfect! Thanks!
We stayed here for a few nights. It took a little while before someone opened the door but perhaps there is something wrong with the door bell (worth checking!). It has excellent fully equipped kitchen and an amazing communal area. It has a little shop attached where you can buy your snack or some wonderful wine! The rooms were clean and so were the bathrooms - only shame there was no lockers for your valuables. But I think you could lock those at the reception. Excellent market nearby!!
We only stayed at this hostel for one night. They couldn't find part of our reservation but it was resolved fairly quickly. Then we were given a bed which already belonged to someone else, but I guess it is down to the travellers rather than the hostel. It is in an great location near the metro. They serve very good breakfast in a café and also dinner, it is definitely a value for money. The shower in the ladies dorm wasn't very clean at all. Overall it was ok and a good pick for those on budget
We only stayed there one night. The season is gone so the hostel was empty which was kind of good as there was not many utensils in the kitchen to use and so when the hostel is full, I am not sure what happens. However, we got an upgrade on the room and we got breakfast in the morning, simple but sufficient! Staff was very nice! It is right in the town centre so it is excellent, but a little bit of walk from the station.
Very nice hostel close to the city centre and fairly close to a major supermarket. Staff is very helpful. It has a great outside area which can be enjoyed when it's nice weather. Kitchen is fully equipped and is cleaned every day. We would recommend this hostel to everyone.
Staff is excellent, very very helpful! I would recommend this hostel.
We really liked this hostel. It has a bar connected to it and they also serve free food in the evening. They also provide free tea and coffee and milk to go with it. These things just make your day so much better when you're on a budget! Staff was very nice and friendly and helpful. The hostel is very clean and in a good location. We stayed in a four bed dorm which had an ensuite toilet and shower. Would recommend.
Excellent hostel with great and helpful staff. Very good location minutes away from a big supermarket and the tourism office so great for transport. Would recommend to everyone.
Very good hostel near the station. Supermarket is just a few minutes walk. It is very very clean, but due to it's big size there is not much of an atmosphere there. However, kitchen and other facilities are very good so I still would recommend this hostel to everyone.
Really nice hostel, we stayed there for a week and were really happy with everything. There is a market in the area with lots of food and other stuff. It is about 15 minutes from the metro, not easy to find but once you there it is easy to get around. There are lots of important things around such as supermarkets, post office etc. It is also about 10 minutes walk from the Taipei 101 tower. Would recommend.
Not a real hostel, just a place to crash.
Very nice hostel with all the facilities you may need on your travels. Very very clean. Breakfast has a big variety of things to offer, only thing missing is the coffee. Very comfortable wide beds. Close to subway. There are not many eateries around but there is a Carrefour supermarket a few minutes walk from the hostel.
We liked this hostel very much. The staff was helpful and facilities absolutely sufficient. The only thing we would point out is that the toilets for the dorms could do with a little more cleaning (perhaps more often) and the showers should be kept hair free as the water wasn't draining and the shower became a lake. Other than that, we enjoyed the stay and if these things improve it is a perfect hostel to stay in.
This is an excellent hostel in a great location. Rooms are very clean, beds are very comfortable and common areas are clean and great to get together. Traveller's cafe is fantastic, very good food. Has a fantastic bar in the basement. Maybe only one thing - we arranged for a pick up but then we didn't meet anyone at the station. Was very busy there so we just probably didn't see them. I would definatelly recommend this hostel to everyone! Staff are very friendly. Keep up the good work guys!
We totally enjoyed our stay in Red Lantern. The staff were really lovely and always helpful and the place was kept very clean at all times. Our room was very cozy and beds were very very comfortable. I would recommend this hostel to everyone. It is in a great location only a few minutes walk from the underground and surrounded by narrow streets where you can buy lots of kinds of local food very cheap. Over all we loved staying here!!

(-)On arrival we were asked for additional 30 dollars refundable deposit, which wasn't stated on the web when we booked. (-)We weren't even provided with directions to the hostel prior to our arrival. It would be a good idea to do it. Makes life easier on arrival to a strange city! (-)We booked 8 bed dorm but were placed in a 22 bed dorm without an explanation. (-)Toilet next to the room wasn't clean, it was peed all over and no toilet paper there. (+)Bedsheets were clean and freshly washed
We loved everything about this hostel. We felt like at home. Beds were very comfy and facilities were very clean. The staff were wonderfull and we will miss them and this hostel very much! If we ever come back to Kuala Lumpur we will stay there again!! Thank you!
