    Wonderful staff that made the trip really welcoming and comfortable, very quick to respond to problems around the hostel and daily management. Cool facilities with different zones if you wanted a break and really great stay. Curtains over the top bunks as well and the bottom would be a good addition because it felt really exposed at times but overall okay. Miss the cat and her kittens

    11/10 stars - absolutey perfect! ”

    One of the best hostels we ever stayed and by far the cleanest we saw in 6 months traveling in Asia. Very comfy beds, unbelievable friendly hosts and a good chill out area in front to sit down in the evening (and to play with cute baby cats at the moment which was an extra bonus!!!) We came back for a second stay and would always come back if we were stopping in Kuala Lumpur. It’s very good located, which is always a good thing in big cities. Also they had a very good city map where you could find good restaurants, ATMs and supermarkets. Even while it looks so simple and clean it felt very warm and welcoming! Would absolutely recommend! :-) And thanks again to the team, you’re all making a perfect job!

    Very clean and convenient place”

    They have nice walls in the private room. Place is clean and service staff is great, conveniently located near to Time square, walkable distance about 10mins walk or alternatively to skip the sun, a grab would only cost about RM5 to 8 depending if there's a surge etc. Cafes nearby too, super good stay! Will definitely choose this over and over again! Only thing that's not ideal is that they charge you for extra towels/change of towels which not all budget hotel does....

    This place is perfect! It’s clean, spacious, comfortable, modern. The staff ist extremely helpful and friendly (they promised to bring my postcards to a post office for me, since I had to leave earlier). The beds are simply awesome! I regret only staying there for one night, I would’ve loved to spend another one just because I slept so good. And when do you get the chance to sleep on the third floor of a bunk bed?! Plus my room had a window, which is so important for me! The whole style is very unique. It’s also close to the famous food street and a lot of other great places for eating and shopping. If I ever come back to KL, I will stay there!

    It just took me 15mins to get to The Hang Tuah station from The KL Scentral.Easy to find its location.Turly advise you to take along daily supplies if you want to check in this hostel.I borrowed a girl's toothpaste when i first came here.I have been chosen a hostel before.It served a pouch pack personal hygiene products for free.How awkward I was.So you are supposed to take the facial cleanser,toothpaste and slipper.When i arrived here,The staff is very nice to help me know their way around.You needn't be afraid of the language.Most of the Malaysians have a command of Chinese and English and Cantonese and some others.There is one for you.Most importantly,It' convenient to go to many popular tourist spots.

For those who don’t want to walk, it’s near several options for public transport! Extremely clean- they clean every half hour it seemed so everything was spotless at all times.

    Really good”

    Very clean. Good facilities such as showers and toilets. Friendly service-minded staff. Location on a quiet side street in Bukit Bintang is central enough (within walking distance to Pudu Sentral and Hang Tuah metro). A lot of useful information. Attention to detail. Missed a table with chairs. Kitchen facility could be better, though there is a spacious fridge and a microwave (missed utensils and flat plates). Curtains to ensure privacy in the dorm are insufficient. The use of metal lockers in the dorm causes unpleasant noise. You wake up every time someone takes something out. Overall this is a very nice hostel. Stayed three days.

    Booked for one night, stayed for 3. Two pillows, lovely fresh smelling laundry. Quirky / industrial look and feel. I’ve never seen a hostel with such a high standard of cleanliness. Free filtered water available. Laundry service is spot on. Fa was a massive with tips and organising trips, smiling always too. The other staff are super friendly too.

Also brought local snacks for me to try. Delicious! Can’t find any food like this at the tourist places. I wouldn’t have experienced any of this if it wasn’t for her. Thanks you sooo much!!! Definitely the best hostel I’ve stayed at and I’ve been traveling for more than 5 months. Great location. Clean. Beds are comfortable. Paper Plane Hostel has spoiled me. No other hostel can compete. Especially with their service. I will definitely come back again. The only hostel I will stay at in KL :)
