    Love this place! Super clean and comfy. I love the pods to sleep in and the space under the beds for luggage. The staff was accommodating to my late arrival and very friendly.

    Fantastic Hostel! So much so I stayed there again on the way back from Mt. Kinabalu. The staff are super friendly anytime, going so far as to act as my taxi to the airport at 5AM for RM4. The beds and dorms look just like the pictures, and though they are capsule-style, they do not feel restrictive. The showers were hot, the bathrooms clean, and laundry service available from RM5 per wash (RM6 / kilo if you want express). The walk to the markets is long at about 30 minutes, but otherwise, GREAT!

    Great hostel!! Was a bit out of the city center, but as I was just staying for the night after my summit of Mt. Kinabalu so needed somewhere to crash. Perfect for this!! Clean bathrooms, comfy beds, and felt very private in my own little capsule. Staff was very nice as well!!! Highly recommend!

    A great hostel, clean and very comfy beds. Pods feel cool, quiet and spacious. Parking is difficult as very busy streets nearby and you need to buy loads of 30mins tickets from orange shop

    We spent two nights there (the third we were up Mt Kinabalu) and had a great experience. 24 hr reception meant we didn't stress checking in late, the beds were super comfy! I adore the huge showers but we didn't get the hot water to work. The staff are lovely and really accommodating.

    Comfy beds, warm showers and really nice staff! Slightly out of the main part of town but a really nice hostel. Close to the airport and cheap using through GRAB. Booking more nights after my trek!

    hostel was fine and I liked the pod beds. Unfortunately, the staff was rude to me when I checked in. I wanted to make sure that I would be able to checkout early and get my key deposit back because I had an early morning flight. Staff cut me off mid question and assured me I would be fine. Well, when I woke up the next morning the front desk staff was asleep on the couch and I had to wait for her to wake up so that i could return my key and get my deposit back.....There are better hostels.

    This hostel appeared to be in a run down part of KK. Approx 40min walk to centre. Staff were unhelpful and didn’t show compassion when they promised something and didn’t deliver. However, the place has Netflix, hot showers and laundry facilities. We had a bad night sleep - lots of noise. Wouldn’t stay again or recommend to friends. There are better hostels in KK

    Don’t know how this has received good reviews. Reception staff are lazy and unhelpful. Showers and toilets were constantly breaking down and with only 2 toilets (one of which was always blocked) for about 40 people you could be waiting a while. There was a leak in our room which was solved by putting a bucket under it for 5 days. In a weird area of town with nothing around it. Definitely think there’s much better choice in KK for your money
