I have traveled all over the world (5 continents) and of all the places I have been, this has been the best... good location -central-, clean, safe, friendly, good staff ... with nearby tourist attractions. And its owner Adi, is a very good and kind person, with a great heart always willing to help others. It has a philosophy of life that we should all imitate. I recommend everyone to stay here and know to Adi. Thanks for everything...

Was here for my solo trip and this will be the first time at this hostel. Location Located at the alley behind Fahrenheit Mall or just on the same street as Royal Hotel KL, near to go to Pavillion and Bukit Bintang Plus Point # The hostel it self quite clean # The staffs warm and would be happy to share the hostel story to the quests # Fast Internet Minus Point # They do not provide breakfast but water dispenser and hot water available (7-11 and News Market within walking distance) # Only stairs not recommended for travellers with heavy luggage # The bathroom is really tiny not much space ( 2 toilets and 2 bathrooms available) For this price i would its quite worth it

I was fortunate to have had opportunity to experience my 1st bagpacker hostel (in 30yrs of travelling). Both the soft hearted staff(volunteers) under the leadership of Adi are on toes to guide, assist & mingle in discussion. I found my stay was many times better than my own home. This is new facility & all the utilities are in order. Apart from the quality of the facilty this place highly connected to other part of city by train, bus etc. Near by abundant choices of food, shopping etc. Highly recommended to experience the community minded service & sure I will do visit again
