    It was superb for the price. For Rm35 one night, you get a really cosy place to stay and have fun. The location is also really convenient as it’s just beside a shopping mall. I went here alone and the environment immediately suits me as a young adult who just loves the presentation of space. I do not think it’s suitable for a family considering that it’s small and might interrupt other tourists staying here as well.

    I had an amazing stay at Zoku hostel. The host Jansson was really helpful. He organizes various tours for the guests and he is always on time. He offers a really personal service to everyone, so the guests can feel at home. The rooms are clean and the beds are comfortable. The WiFi works well and the atmosphere was great overall. I would come back to stay here again.

    You can do your laundry for free but I'd suggest taking it to the laundry place downstairs to dry it as some of our didn't dry well and smelt damp. Rooms and beds are clean if a little cramped. Free breakfast and snacks. Atmosphere is good depending on who is staying there when you are. Overall good location and staff are really kind and helpful.

    Great base for KK. Short walk to the waterfront. Across the street from Imago Mall. Bonus having access to pool in nearby hotel. It was quiet and clean with a nice common area. Didn't see much of the staff during our stay but were very helpful when needed. 6 bed dorm was clean & comfortable but VERY tight on space!!
