We were really disappointed here. First, the staff is partying every day until 2 am. Second, the price for the room kept changing, even though on Agoda booking the room was cheaper, they said it was a wrong price, that we cannot make booking and we have to pay 10 RM more then the price on booking. First he says...

I don't usually give bad reviews but I couldn't help my self here, We showed up after a decent bus ride from Melaka, went to the reception floor and the so called receptionist looked at us funny and asked if we had a booking, which we did. He then ran around looking for a room for us which seemed to...

I stayed here August 2013. I paid £10 a night for a windowless box, with shared showers. The location is good (downtown and very close to the metro - easy airport get away). Security is good, and the staff also friendly. You will get tea and toast for breakfast in a small common area. If you are on a budget...

The reception officer is so kind and helpful! The stay is OK as the room is clean and quiet! Free simple breakfast included too! I would suggest the change of bed linen always as it is a bit sticky and unclean. Overall, it is a good budget hostel !

Breakfast included (coffee and toasts) and access to the kitchen. Internet and wifi access. Towels provided. Great location! We will definitely stay here again. Thank you...

From the first moment after I arrived at 4 am in the morning I felt, that its more than just an accomodation. The owner Muhamad Syed was so friendly, even at this early time, and well informed about my stay. The next days I meet all his staff from Philippines, Ana Maria Maningo, Lourdes Rojo and Flordeliza Clores. Ist a...

Nothing special, the rooms are more like cardboard boxes, But the rooms are clean and the beds are comfortable. For Kuala Lumpur it is supposedly good value, as the location is also very nice, right next-door to Chinatown.
