          I stayed here only 1 night but would say it's nice place and very convenient because close to KL Sentral. From there, you can walk only 2-3 min to take a bus to the airport. It's my first choice to stay in KL next time.

          Nice hostel, clean (both room and bathrooms). Has lockers (even if you don't see them in the pictures), Wi-Fi, a/c and towel. Maybe they overdo the a/c like everywhere in Asia, but the bed was comfy. Nice cafè, good location, friendly staff!
