  • Best hostel ever! It was so clean and the staff was helpful. I felt safe and all the employees took the time to explain us how to get to the main attractions. They were patient and really nice. We arrived earlier and they invited us to have breakfast and relaxed as well as using their facilities. I would highly recommend this hostel.

  • The hostel comprises of three floors, a lot of dorm beds, a lounge area with free flow of coffee and friendly staff. A simple breakfast is also included which endorses a familiar home-like atmosphere to the place. It happens to lie in the middle of all the bustle of china town which makes it a perfect start point to scout the area. It only misses laundry service, but that could be arranged only a block away. A recommended place.

  • Great hostel! Staff very friendly and helpful, very tidy, clean and safe. Is in a good location, right next to China town and is only a 2-5 min walk from the closest train station. The directions on their website aren't to clear so Google before you go. I was here by myself and never felt unsafe. Would recommend and stay here again!

  • Staff were friendly, and easy to converse with. It is 5 mins walk from Chinatown and a LRT station. Pudu Sentral is around 10-15mins walk away too. Good location and great ambiance. Definitely recommended.

  • You can find cheaper places in KL but if you are looking for an easy, clean, cool, and friendly environment and don't mind paying 2 or 3 USD extra per night, than this place is for you. One of the best hostels I have staid in.

  • The most comfortable bed I've slept in at a hostel. Everything was clean and well maintained. Location was fantastic--right next to Central Market and Chinatown with easy access to the metro.
