The guy running the hostel is really annoying. He complained about everything: if the guests ate all the breakfast jam, if a tap is broken and he needs to fix it, if people took spoons to their rooms... It looked like he was checking on the guests continuously...

The place is what it is-but cheap, good location and staff who are hands on friendly and welcoming. Easy to find, close to food and transport. Max works hard here and it shows, was quiet when we stayed. Maps and help available for travel. Offer of toast and jam in the price.

We arrived at 2am after getting in late with no booking but the staff were helpful and kind. The rooms are clean and affordable, breakfast is simple toast and coffee. Only stayed one night but would recommend for anyone looking for simple, affordable and clean rooms.

Max (the best receptionist in town) sent me a pre-arrival message with detailed directions to the hostel - a big plus, never received anything like this from any hostels. He was greeting me with a big smile, helped me with my luggage and further directions in town. I enjoyed being in the community area, as he always made sure about...

The location is super strategic for solo traveller. It is also strategic to use the kelana line (pasar Seni).The room is super comfortable and clean. But, the stairs to go up to your room might get you tired if you are not used to going up to more than 3rd floor of building

I can just recommend everyone to go to the Dataran Merdeka and the nearby mosque in the evening hours, which is also close to the hostel. The rooms and beds are clean and a...

I don't know why this hostel has so many good reviews; to me it was one of the worst hostels I've been to. Cons: weird staff, they moved me to another dorm right after I had checked in and started to unpack, they moved the studd of another girls who wasn't there to give her permission and they threatened one...

I was there two nights. It's not expensive and it was comfortable. I did my booking in internet and almost right after doing that I got an email from Max, where was told exactly how I can get in that hotel. It was really helpful! I don't think I would have find that hotel other way so easily. And Max...
