Hostelworld says

The location of The Explorers Guesthouse and Hostel is 'exactly where you want to be as a backpacker, with the markets and train stations just a walk away', according to our reviewers. This hostel is centrally located near Chinatown, the Central Market, KL Tower and much more, making it easy to explore the city centre on foot or via the nearby tram station. We particularly like the great views of KL Tower and the Petronas Twin Towers from their rooftop terrace. Many of our guests say they'd recommend this hostel to friends.

    I have been staying here for many years now when I come to KL. I have to say that their beds and pillows are the best i have ever ever slept on. If you set the air con at 25c that adds to the perfection, they are quiet units too. Staff cannot do enough for you

    Great location (2 min from the metro, Chinatown, and Central Market), clean rooms and bathrooms, and a spacious common space with lots of outlets and two computers. The staff was also very nice and helpful. There’s a luggage storing space if you come too early for check in. Would love to return to this hostel again!

    It was a lovely hostel, wonderful for the price. Great location next to the pasar seni metro station. However, prepare for a restless sleep as there will probably be people coming in and out of your room at all hours. Otherwise a wonderful place.

The Explorers Guesthouse and Hostel says

The best thing about our hostel is that we are located in the historical area of Kuala Lumpur, with many great historical sights just within walking distance. These include Sze Ya Temple (opposite our hostel) and Central Market (two streets away) whilst Petaling Street (Chinatown), Merdeka Square, Sri Mariamman Temple, Masjid Jamek, Little India and Old Railway Station are all a few minutes\' walk from our hostel. We recommend visiting the Central Market , the epicentre of Malaysian culture, arts and handicrafts. It was built in 1888 and consists of three lanes-namely Lorong Melayu, Straits Chinese and Lorong India, so named to reflect the various cultures in Malaysia. You may even find a fish spa here which is really interesting for those who have never tried it before! It also houses The Annexe Gallery where you can find local contemporary arts.
We are not a party hostel. Our guests find our hostel a good place to chill and relax and they also use our hostel as a base while travelling to other places/countries as we provide free luggage storage. There's also free Wi-Fi and free coffee and tea! There's even a book exchange, as we believe that books are one of our best companions while travelling.
Our hostel is best suited for those between 18 and 50 years of age. We do not have lifts/elevators; therefore, may not be suitable for those with disabilities. Guests are \'encouraged\' to exercise as our hostel is a four-storey building!
