        Very Satisfied with this hostel! :)”

        the room was clean, the staff is very accomodating and friendly, the location is in the heart of the city.

        well, at first it was very difficult to locate the hotel because the sign is small (If they can make the signage bigger, it will be a big help)m But staying there is so nice. The room is clean, the place is secured, the staff was very accomodating and friendly and staying there for just 3 days I felt like they were my family (the staff), and the location is good. ITs near the bus station and other famous places in Kuala Lumpur. So I will recommend this hostel.:)

        The best hostel I've ever stayed!”

        High speed internet of its wifi, comfortable living room/lobby, there are many toilets and shower rooms

        It was really fun. The room rate per night is included the free breakfast (bread/toast with margarine, strawberry or blueberry jam, boiled egg, and also a cup of hot tea or coffee. It's located in Bukit Bintang area which is really crowded in the night. The hostel also has high speed internet wifi, cozy living room/lobby and many of toilets and shower rooms. When I was staying there, I have many friendly roommates and we were talking much like we know each other before and because we stay together, it seems like a family. But they don't have reading lamp at each bed.

        Location

        Good - Very cheap. - Staffs were so nice and friendly. - surrounded by shopping malls, restaurants, and places for night life. OK - The breakfast was OK. - The bedroom is in acceptable condition (almost clean). Bad - The bathrooms were so dirty and unacceptable. - long walk from bus stops and train stations.

        The hostel has a great location for anyone who wants to enjoy the nightlife in kuala lumpur. I stayed here for 2 nights and it was pleasant. The breakfast was great, and they provide you with fresh towels. The staff is very helpful.. it can get a little bit loud in the evening, but overall its great value for your money, and i would definitely recommend it to anyone.

        This is my 2nd time already to stay 1night.. duribg my first night, i really at ease that i could just be myself coz the lady in charge was so nice and there's music that surrounds the lobby.. however, on my 2nd stay it became diffrent... despite the noise outside, the guy who's incharge didnt want noise, no music no loud chitchat.. like hello, who is he kidding.. the hostel is surrounded by bars, restaurants loud music all around at night and by day people are everywhere.. so why we need to keep silence or have low tone when infact noise coming from the outside was louder... he's too bossy and very stiff.. if i rate he staff negative only for him, yes only him.. his strict approach will not invite people to stay in their hostel.. just saying. But anyway, i just hope on my next stay i hope he'll be not around, or better yet replace him. Nakakasira cya ng business..

        Price, Location and Cleanliness

        It is a nice budget hostel, but its location is too close to night clubs - situated just on top of a row of bars. Bass music keeps playing until 0200 hours in the morning, then party goers start returning to the hostel rooms after that making annoying door opening and closing squeaks. I would not recommend this place if you are looking for a peaceful rest, but if you are a party goer then this is an entirely different story...

        The staff, the location, and the bars

        This is a cheap hotel with the best location and the best staff you can get. The place is literally above the bars and the location is surrounding by bars. If you love bars so this is the best budget hotel you can get. And kinda traffic during weekend because you know all of people or visitors loves to go to bars and you can imagine you stay in a street full of bars. About the place the serve breakfast with Strawberry jams or blueberry and they serve boiled egg and they open breakfast from 6 AM up to 10 AM only. Near Bukit Bintang area which is its the biggest shopping area in KL and you can find the best shopping mall in there. For me you get what you pay. Want have the best place in KL you need pay more. But the staff in here is extraordinary. =D

        10 minutes walk from the Bukit Bintang Monorail station, this hostel is in a central location that is hard to beat. Changkat Bintang, the street it is located on has bars and clubs, and connects to Jalan Alor the famous food street. Shopping is nearby, from the high class Pavillion to the tech paradise Low Yat, there is something for everyone. Have to pay for lockers which is a bit of a bummer, but 1 rm is not too bad. Breakfast is only toast and eggs, but there is loads of food all around included Western staples. Did I mention the fast Wifi? Go. You won't regret it!
