Great staff, comfy and clean
I flew into KL for 2 nights before I headed off to Penang. The hostel is very clean, beds are super comfy and great communal areas which is perfect for a solo traveller. The staff couldn't of done anymore to help with advice on places for dinner and drinks (check out helipad - roof top bar) and places to travel. I wish I'd got the name of the reception lady and gentleman, but they did a fantastic job. I will be back!

Lovely staff and amazingly beautiful accommodations. Best hostel (almost feels like a hotel) I have
You can take the express train from the airport really easily, and then the subway and just a minute walk. Directions on website are perfect. No bedbugs, extremely clean. And all beautiful things in KL are in walking distance. Would def come back here.
