    Cat Lover Hostel”

    There are friendly and clean stray cats outside the hostel. The staff is very kind to feed them and now they become home cats, The cats like to cuddle with people and even call people to open door and play with them. Not to worry about the cleanliness if you are cat allergies, as the cats is stay outdoor. Love this hostel. Recommended.

    This was a wonderful hostel to stay in during my time in Malaysia. It was clean, well taken care of, and very conveniently located. It is located about a 10 minute walk from the MRT and the staff are very kind and helpful. I fell ill and the owner bought me soup! I would definitely stay again.

    Great and comfortable place, a bit scary dorms”

    I got a top bunk and it was scary high with barely a small railing on the side to keep you from falling. Wasn't cold enough up there either, but the bed and beddings were good quality and comfortable. Could use a bit more cleaning towards the shower areas, but generally worth the money for the stay.

    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!
