    This is by far my favorite hostel that I have had the pleasure to stay in! The local owner, international staff, excursions, nice rooms, and chill vibes truly made staying here freaking awesome. The owner is an absolute gem and truly wants you to have a good time and be taken care of. On top of all that, they are converting the hostel into an eco-friendly space! I can't wait to go back to KL just to stay at this hostel again.

    We liked this hostel and how close it was to the train and China town! The owner was super kind and gave us lots of good insight to what to do within walking distance too. Overall, it’s a great place to rest your head in KL!

    Whether you're looking for chilout or party, this is the place in KL. The staff organize trips to bars, or nature walks during the day, there's something for everyone here. Also a very friendly and social atmosphere. The location is a bit far from most sights, but the Monorail station is right in front of the hostel, so getting around is easy. All in all - great hostel, definitely recommend!

    Absolutely scintillating! The hosts Steven and Beatrix go above and beyond and make your stay unforgettable. They know all the best places to eat, drink and experience KL. Tours take you to all the local spots, giving you a more personal look into Kuala Lumpur. Would highly recommend this hostel for anyone visiting the city.

    I gave everything top points except security that gets a 4/5. The place is secure in general so I have no problem with that but in the dorms the boards had lock places but no locks on them. In all the other hostels I've been to they have integrated locks I don't need to buy or carry an extra one. Here there was no lock on it. I needed to buy a lock. When it comes to the pros: The communal area is amazing, its the best I've seen up to date. Definitely recommend this place.

    The hostel is great and clean I was expecting more food from breakfast because they only had watermelon and bread. I don’t recommend attending the tours with the organizer (his name is Mo), he Won’t pay for his own expenses and be rude. He is not part of the hostel staff so I don’t have any complains directly with hostel because he is independent.

    The first time you see a review on the web. Your heart is excited. But once you start living here. Their bad temper is starting to come out especially for Self Appointed Volunteer as Manager Hanen. If you are very concerned about cleanliness please stay away from this accommodation as they’re very lazy to do housekeeping. And they did not practice social distancing and regular cleaning during the Covid-19 as the government had regulated.
