    Cool, trendy place in good location”

    The place is very nicely designed and decorated— there’s a rooftop bar and two cool restaurant/coffee shops below. Beds are really comfy with private A/C and curtains, but the noise really was an issue so— like just random banging all night long like slamming doors. If you absolutely need a restful nights sleep, I wouldn’t risk trying to get one here. But great place to meet other travelers and has a bit of a mid to late 20’s- early 30’s sophisticated party hostel vibe. It really is a good place to Mingle. Staff was also welcoming and helpful!

    It was a nice hostel. The staff was very friendly, but didn’t always have recommendations to share. There were events planned every night. The location is good. The facilities were clean. I would prefer to stay at their other location that has a pool.

    We booked a double bed in a dorm and then a private room. Both were good. In the dorm you can have privacy cause you have a curtain. You have plugs and light too. The dorm is small. For the private room they charge you more like a private room taxe ... bathroom are very clean and staff good

    Clean facility, good for soli traveler, great location”

    Some of the things were broken, like the combo lock in my room. The bathrooms were great, but one can see the wear and tear on some of the doors. Stayed in a 2 bunk bed capsule room that fits 4 people to sleep. The common space for that room was very small; dont expect to congregate with roomies on that floor together to rearrange luggage, etc. But once in the capsule with the curtain down, the bed was pretty comfy. Good aircon made the room comfortable.

    One night stay at Mingle”

    I stayed in a 4 beds dorm at Mingle. I honestly don't know what's the fuss about Mingle, it looks very similar to any other hostel I've been to. The dorms are very small and the facilities are discrete. By any means, it was a nice stay, but nothing exceptional. With such a high score I've been to nicer hostels. The breakfast is very basic, but it's more than enough for the price paid, so I would never complain about that. The cafè downstairs is really nice and offers some good quality coffee although I think it's a bit overpriced (all the hipster bars are, but I still go there haha).

    An excellent hostel that balances socializing and privacy in the dorms. I appreciated the small number of beds in each room! The bar upstairs is a nice addition as well. The only complaint is that sounds definitely travels - I could hear conversations from all the surrounding rooms from my bed.

    All okay but...”

    Before booking this hostel, I've read some reviews on agoda. The average said their sleep was disturbed because the sound of other residents outside was heard even in the room. The hostel's walls are not soundproof. Only that unsatisfactory reviews I read. Having tried it yourself proved to be unequal as stated. After 10pm, the hostel's atmosphere is quite quiet. In some places posted orders to start at 10 pm until 7 am it is time to be silent. All I want to review is about towels. This hostel did not provide towels instead I had to rent for RM5. Is not the towel supposed to be the basic item that should be provided free? It's just a shortage for me. Others are all the best as others comment.

    Great spot in the heart of Chinatown”

    The Mingle Hostel has a great location right in the heart of Chinatown, which means you are steps away from really good, inexpensive food at almost any time of day. Street food carts set up 200m up the street, with numerous restaurants right across the street. Facilities are quite nice and the entire place has a really cool, rustic feel. I had a private queen room (upper bed), and only had one night where the person in the private room below me was excessively loud. Felt like a really big capsule. Note that the upper beds are really quite high, so if you have issues with that, request a lower berth. Staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful at all times, and even helped direct me to some local laundry services after backpacking through Central Asia for several weeks beforehand. Breakfast is served in the cafe downstairs, and is fairly simple. If you arrive at the end of service, there probably won't be much left for you other than toast, jams, and maybe some hard boiled eggs

    Almost great but”

    Awesome stay. Almost daily events. Superb staff. BREAKFAST WAS REALLY GOOD. Daily cleanup. But since walls are too thin you can hear insensitive people talking loud and shouting. They provide earplugs though. You can get free good breakfast in other hostels (25-35RM) I don’t why it’s expensive for an upscaled place.
