Arrived at evening, staff was rude and the dorm was unclean, spent here only one night. Ok place to sleep and good wifi though. Location was ok and easy to find. But i would not go there for a second visit.

We had a great time here and booked 4nights in a doublebed room. The reception is so friendly and helpful, breakfast was also yummy the lady was so kind at the roof and we would recommend it! Location is directly in Chinatown and it's near the bus and metro station. You can buy the ticket there for the Menara Tower...

Stayed here for two nights in the mixed dorm, rooms were pretty clean, however you had to walk through the male dorm room to get to the female and mixed dorm. The air con was not very powerful but enough to stop you from sweating. Showers weren't warm but it was nice to have a cool shower with the heat....

Stayed here for 2 nights in mid October. The staff member who greeted me wasn't the friendliest, but I didn't find him rude either. I had a grievance with my booking and he dealt with the problem without any fuss which was appreciated. The lady upstairs was super warm and friendly, and my friend really enjoyed her smoothies. The hostel...

We arrived and were immediately greeted by a rude man on the reception. It's a shame as the lady who cooks was so lovely and friendly. The room was run down and very basic. We were sold the room as an a/c room but only had a fan and an a/c unit that would not turn on. When we asked...

HORRID. DO NOT STAY HERE!!!!!! It feels like you're in a prison, a boiling hot (they switch the air con off from 9am-9pm) dirty, dirty prison. Beds were broken and DIRTYYYYY. The air con in our room leaked, really quite badly and when we said about it he just turned it up so the room became hotter. No toilet roll,...

Unfortunately the low price, friendly staff and decent internet are not enough to warrant staying here. The air-con is only on at night, where it occasionally huffs some warm air at you. Surrounding this hostel is the dirtiest and most boring part of the city. The beds are uncomfortable and you have to put the sheets on yourself. My towel...

Good place to come crash. No toilet paper. No fridge to place food. The AC rooms only have AC from 9pm-9am. Shower shut off on me but luckily it was when I was done showering. It is really cheap and in a good location for china town though. So if you just want a bed and plan to be doing...

Poor, dirty, no windows in the male dorm (which you have to walk through to get out)- very smelly & unpleasant, packed in like sardines, smells only slightly better. Don't go thinking 'it's cheap, why not'- this grotty place makes you feel unhappy just being there, & wasn't a great welcome to the grand city of Kuala Lumpur. Just up...
