      Very good price and friendly staff”

      As this hostel has no shoes policy, they should provide flipflops, because when I walk there, it wasn't so clean and I had dirty socks and feets straight away. In my single room wasn't any shelf at all, only bunk bed, but room just for me. Single room was just 6m2 but you dont need more really, for such an incredibke good price as around 30 myr. Useful kitchen and 24/7 reception. Very friendly and helpful staff. I definitely recommend this place.

      You know a place is good when guests return or extend their stay. I did both and was pleasantly surprised to meet and greet fellow travelers from my previous visit. Free breakfast at the adjacent restaurant is a nice perk. Close to food markets, shopping and transportation. Alex and Zen run a tight ship and keep things running smoothly and a nice chill environment.

      Acceptable for Such Rate”

      This was my 4th time staying in Dorms KL. The significant change was that now we had to bring our shoes into our rooms, to avoid theft. I was ok with that. My room was surprisingly quiet, although the walls were really thin. I wish it has proper drinking water for the guests as well as door hangers. This was the first time I found the toilet not flushed properly.

      Great Place to Stay”

      Clean, secure, well-run place to stay. Fun, too. Free breakfast with coffee at the adjoining restaurant is a bonus. Although I read this was a party hostel after I arrived, I think it's just a friendly place that knows how to show guests a good time. A bargain, especially considering breakfast, free towel and beer at a good price. I'll be back.

      Great stay”

      Amazing location. 10 minutes walk to Bukit Bintang, 10 minutes walk to Imbi monoral station, 3 minutes walk to famous Jl.Alor, 20 minutes walk to Puduraya bus station. The place is clean, wifi is great, the staff are so friendly, I was in love with Leo the cat and Billy - the owner's daughter. Met lots of nice people there. Nasi Kandar restaurant in front of the hostel is 24 hours and also serve amazing food. The bed is so comfortable, I slept nicely through the whole 2 nights. The only cons was for my experience in particular maybe, because I was staying in 6 bed dorm where there was a couple who keep on doing PDA in front of me, and at night this couple switched off the AC, so I feel suffocated and can't sleep and decided to move to single room immediately (with extra paying,o f course) But the girls in receptionist really helpful in responding my request and once I had my single room, I was content and happy, no complaint at all Definitely will come back again if I visit KL

      The building’s entrance is passed through and Indian restaurant, where there is the free breakfast. The owners are an English (I think) couple. Really helpful and available. The place is fool of rooms so you won’t have problems finding someone to spend time or travel with. I like the shoes-forbidden policy.

      The location was good, right next to lots of street food and many malls near by. Only a short walk from the bus station you can get to from the airport. The staff were nice but sometimes seemed more occupied watching TV than manning the desk so felt awkward asking them anything. The room itself was small and literally fit a double bed and a your bags but the bed was comfy and the Aircon worked so wasn't too bothered. It can get pretty noisy in the evenings but that was to be expected when there's a bar in the hostel. Breakfast in the connecting restaurant was good, especially enjoyed the roti. Overall was a affordable place to stay and covered all basic needs.

      5-days stay”

      The breakfast- 2 pieces of roti canai and kopi o and they were good. (We got to choose either toast or roti canai) I stayed in a single room - no windows, only a small vent above. It is actually a bunk bed, but I got the entire room to myself. There is an aircond in the room. Toilets are clean. The staffs are friendly. Good location: Jalan Alor for food, Pavilion, Lot 10, Fahrenheit 88 for shopping. 5 minutes walk to Jalan Alor for all the touristy food. 5 - 10 minutes walk from/to Bukit Bintang MRT. 10 - 15 minutes walk to Pavilion. Would recommend using the MRT to get to Bukit Bintang rather than monorail. By cash, KL Sentral Monorail to Bukit Bintang monorail: RM2.50 By cash, Muzium Negara MRT (connected to KL Sentral, a little bit of walking distance, but fine for me) to Bukit Bintang MRT: RM1.80 Overall, this place is good value for money.

      Amazing hostel, always nice people around!”

      This was the first hostel I ever stayed in Asia, and it gave me the best start of my travels. The terrace gives the best opportunities to meet new people, and every other guest I met here was looking for nice talks. Also the lobby downstairs is nice to meet people or to just chill. The beds don’t have curtains, rooms do have AC. Bathrooms can be a bit dirty sometimes and showers are within the toilets so it is wet often, but it was not too bad to bother me that much. Outside the rooms and in the bathrooms it can be quite warm though. The staff is amazing and I felt home quickly, most of them know a lot about the city and things to do or not to do and are willing to help. The Indian resto in front is amazing, so definitely don’t skip that besides the breakfast you can enjoy there from the hostel. The barstreet is 5 mins walk. I came back here a few times and would definitely come back again!

      If you're looking for a full backpacker experience this is the perfect place. It even has single rooms if you prefer privacy, the toilets are all shared though. In addition, it has a cool terrace bar where you can get cheap beer and meet other backpackers. The best of it is the people, everyone is really kind and nice they'll make you feel at home.
