    It's ok :)”

    It quiet, small, definitly not a backpacker center. Jason, the owner is a nice and friendly guy. The place is correct, dorm and bed are correct. There is a table in the openspace to talk or work or whatever. It's a good place for a few day stop. Don't expect to make party and meet a thousand of backpacker. It's good for solo traveler or friends for few nights. Wifi is good and the rate quality/price is good and expected. + water + towel included + wifi + working space shower could be a bit improved not sure about noise if raining because it's under the roof

    A good and ackpack Hostel in Brickfield ”

    Clean , Strategic and Kind Staff

    My stay in the hostle can be described as something to be remembered . Ive met several new friends from Belgium and Thailand . The location of this hostel ultimately near to the biggest mall in Brickfield denoted as Nu Sentral . It also near to city centre and can give easy access going to KL Sentral and trains . I love the environment and all the staff and the people in the hostel were so kind and friendly .

    location, staff, cleanliness

    I went there as a solo traveller and it was great because I've never been to KL before but for a noob, I easily found their hostel since it's just a few blocks away from the KL Sentral train station where all trains to different places pass through. The staff was great, they made all guests feel at home and welcome and even gave us advice on where to go and what to see. There were lots of restaurants just outside for a quick bite, and it's just walking distance to Little India!

    Don't really recommend... I got bitten by mites on my last night there, couldn't sleep at all!! They were climbing on the wall!!! Wanted to complain before I leave but I don't see any staff there... Well, they are friendly.. but really do absent sometimes. Luckily there is no need to pay deposit.. if not, I'm not sure how long I'll need to wait. WiFi speed is ok, but no air-cond in lobby, only fans. Good laundry service at only RM10. Location is good, less than 10min walk to NU sentral.

    Near to KL Sentral Station”

    Stayed here due to wrong flight. Hostel is just ok but good enough for a sleep-only traveller. There are a lot of food stall out there and it's pretty close to KL Sentral Station. For those who's going to the airport early, this is an ideal budget stay.

    LOCATION wise... this is the place!”

    Location: -It was a bit hard to find, luckily I have my local friend with me. -very near to KL sentral 3 minutes walking. -near to 7/11 and local restaurant. -near to blind massage places if you penchant some massage. Facilities - They have the basic. free breakfast. - AC in the bedroom - hot water in shower - Drinking water. - There is no enough ventilation in the place, makes it look a bit gloomy, the way they designed it is nice. - The staff and owner is nice. - 24 hrs Receptionist, just let him know that you will be late so we will open the door for you, highly appreciated! Suggestions. - Maybe change the signage outside that is something visible from a far. - If you have suitcases with you this is not ideal because of the stairs that you have to go though, the place is ideal for backpackers. -The bunk beds produces an annoying sound, so if you move on top the one at the bottom bed will be disturbed and vice versa, change it into wooden bunk beds please.. -The water supply is not that enough, I guess its about timing when you feel going for a shower anytime. -maybe a little side lamp or light mounted to the wall for those travellers who loves to read and enjoy the AC in the room rather reading in the common area. OVERALL, I will still book the place if I will just stay for 1 or 2 days but beyond that I suggest find a place that you can sleep well at night.The metal bunk beds is driving me insane.

    Crappy beds, if are on top be careful when u climb it cause they get very easily displaced; if u are on the lower bed any little move will be felt on the bed on top and viceversa; water on shower eother burning hot or just cold - no inbetween; no soap on toilet - u go in the kitchen to use the dishwasher liquid; not worthy for breakfeast either! internet quite ok.

    i was staying only for a night, but it was perfect, got into the hostel after long walk (because i was tired, missed my flight, run out of battery phone, some stranger keep whistle and call you), got lost into an alley, and it was around 8pm, and then the staff (or owner) call you when you were passing by them (it happens that he was talking outside with his neighbour(indian restaurant staff/owner, the food was yum yum if you like indian food and in hungry state), the bullockart staff/owner was so kind, sleep comfortably, breakfast jam and bread, coffee and tea all day, maybe just the location not too recomended, overall value for money

    The host, central location, friendly atmosphere

    I was impressive about the kindness of the host. When I asked him the way to St John Catheral he guided me patiently and carefully. However my time was tight so I decided to catch taxi then suprisingly he suggest taking me and my friend to the church, by his own car, at 8:30 am Sunday, waiting for a short pray and some photos, then take us back to the guesthouse to collect my luggage to leave KL. I was so thankful for that, it was my luck to meet him cause he did not live at the house. I am a solo traveller, that's what I want for a trip, friendly people in a strange place and good memories.

    I barely had a 10 hour stay in this guesthouse and I arrived in wee hours. The staff was so accommodating and kind. The room temperature and the bed are so comfortable that I was able to get a good sleep. The shower/toilets are a little bit weird but it serves its purpose. Overall, this is a great hostel for a short stay as this is a 3 minute walk from KL Sentral.

    I have been to Bullockart in 2017, it was really good but my last trip there is nothing but bad”

    The place is nothing like how it used to be. The front portion is nothing like how it's in the pictures. My booking was not even printed out. It took them around 15 minutes to do the registration. And the place were dirty. I was shown my room and i was shocked because the bed has not been made. The caretaker ask me to wait till he changed the bedsheet n make the bed for me. 3 of the top beds were empty but all were full of dust. The toilets were so dirty, it was disgusting. It was never like how it used to be. The new management have to up their games.
