Great location to Sentral, good for a 1 night stay. Fast WiFi, easy check in, bathrooms and free breakfast very average.

Good location. Strange clientele. Not so much a Backpacker Hostel.. a lot of the people in my dorm appeared to be working in KL.. there was what seemed like a big tour group there too. Lockers provided but would open if pulled even when locked. Towels provided but very poor quality. Wouldn’t stay again.

Close to KL sentral so it’s easy to get to from the airport. The rooms were decent and a small breakfast is included. The bathrooms were not very clean but for the price it is a decent hostel.

Staff seems very tired. I stayed in single room in 1st floor. The air condition is very cold inside the room and it seems central control could not be set up per room. So I spent 2 freezing nights.

It was OK and the good thing about this place is its location being very close to the KL Sentral. However, my room was not clean when I checked-in. There were water bottle and leftover medicinal pills left-out in the wardrobe.

Booked for three nights and checked out after one night. Location is good but the room and the bathroom were just too horrible to stay. Female dorm was tiny with only a fan and unbearable hot! Showers dirty.

Despite the booking confirmation stating clearly that the price included all taxes, there was an additional 'tourism tax' of RM10 (~ €2) per room per night to be paid on arrival. After a 20+ hour journey we were too tired to argue much about this so accepted it and paid on the spot. Then when checking out we were asked to pay it again. Not sure if it was just poor communication/organisation or a scam. Breakfast was tea/coffee/water and white bread/toast with jam.

Only stayed one night so didn't get full experience tbh. Had private room as well as last available. Didn't see dorms / lockers. Nomad friendly desks in cafe downstairs. Walking distance from KL Sentral train station; very handy to get to after a late flight. Comfy bed. Surrounded by Little India, very tasty food right outside. Missed breakfast as got up late, bought eggs on toast in on-site cafe & it was great. Lift available to top floors. Social area looked fun but didn't see it in evening.

Staff great and location perfect, especially if you get a bus to Sentra late when the MRT has finished. Rooms were pretty average, really noisy and sadly no one respects quiet. Sheets and blanket pretty gross. Bathrooms rank, not clean. Showers smelt like sewerage was backing up the plug it was foul. Sadly not money value when there’s so many bad things.
