The hotel is located right across the street behind the monorail station. We stayed in a twin room. Clean room, conveniently located, nice gallery area with a small bar, relaxed ambience. It could be a backpackers' heaven. We skipped the free breakfast which we rather did. The shared toilets n showers were clean. There's an elevator serving every storey. We were next to a noisy street and I had to manage my night with an in-ear music playing earphone. I wasn't sure how secure it could be with our belongings there though it was a nice place for a short pull over.

Amazing Place”
Very nice and great place for solo traveler/bacpackers plus it was affordable. Location wise, eateries were everywhere. Shopping mall and public transports were just in front of your head. I stayed in a single compartment, it was a bit dusty on the platform and locker. Cleanliness could be improved. Overall, I have no issue staying at this place. I definitely would love to come back in the future.

Hostel is very good with very friendly staff. Many foreigners make the place even better, everyone can speak in native language. Everything was clean, many possibilities to eat, not far from bus and train. Elevator was not clean but nothing bad. For me 12 out of 10 points.

Best option for just to sleep with a budget cost. Don’t expect much but heyy, with this cost, I could say it is at its best. I could say all are goods except the smell inside dorm and also all the way long to toilet. But, everything is good. Shall come here again as its super near to KL Sentral. Easy and convenient to travel around KL.

Their staff is great and so kind. We arrived very early,they let us check in our luggage and have a little rest before we start our whole day tour. Because we also checkout at midnight to catch the 3am bus heading to Johor Bahru. The room is clean,and the dormitory dont have that much guest that night. Common Bathroom is also good, clean and no bad smell.

Suitable for a short business stay”
I was in KL for a business and wanted a place to stay for only a short while. I only look for a comfortable place to sleep and to wash up. If that's all that you are looking for, then this place is perfect. It is clean, relatively well maintained, and comfortable.

Receptionist Salmar did a great job. Even tough the matresses are a bit thin and the free drinking water is warm most of the time: I would recommend the place. The toilet was clean. The shower was strong and warm. Shower gel is generously provided. For breakfast there was toast and/or oatmeal. There is a delicious menu and a top notch choice of affordable coffee treats.

I frequently stay here for business travel”
This is one of my go-to places of stay whenever I'm in KL for business. It is situated super duper close to KL Sentral, hence there are a lot of food places around and very easy to travel within Lembah Klang. The place itself is super basic, because it is a backpacker inn. However, it is relatively well maintained and clean.

Location is very near to kl sentral. Easy to go places around kl. It's particularly nice if you have to catch early bus or train to KLIA2. Room is clean and ok too although not so spacious. Although open 24 hours, breakfast is only provided at particular time.

This hotel is suitable for those want to overnight near kl sentral area, its just 1 minute walking distance... Room is very simple, nice pillow with basic blanket... Toilet have no hanger, so it's difficult to take bath as there's no place to hang your clothes. Friendly reception available 24/7

The hostel is really close to the train station Sentral and to the shopping mall. I would recommend it for a short stay only because it smelled soo badly on the 3. Flor. I could have puked. The double bed room was simple. There was not really a aircon but it doesn’t mattered. Mattress are comfortable. Don’t do elephant riding !!!!!!!!!!

Good location that closes to the NU mall. Walking distance very convince. The staffs are just okay, they are polite but not approachable (in my opinion). Maybe I went there when they are busy. What happened was, my card couldn't use to enter the ground floor. After i inform them, there was no feedback or any new spare key. So everytime that i need to pass the ground floor, i need to ring the bell and no body comes.

Comfortable stay”
The location is surprisingly very close to KL Sentral. The staff are friendly. A deposit of RM20 is needed upon check in. The single pod room was small but it was good for me. Clean bathrooms with dry floor. There wasn't much noise from the surrounding area and cafe at night except from around 9pm to midnight. Close after midnight it's pretty much quieted down. A good stay for a very good price.
