We stayed here in KL for two weeks on a budget. The owner Willi went out of his way on many occasions to make sure we were taken care of. He really cares about the people that stay at his hostel and it is a great place to meet other backpackers! There's a few big markets, a bus & train...

Nice: The decoration (feel really good about it, unlike these cold basics concrete places), the wooden floor (give a nice touch), safe, cheap and great location. Bad: The wooden floor (noisy), few bathrooms (and even less with wester toilets) and you have to cross the kitchen to get there, hotter than other cheap place to stay, the girl in the...

Cool Place, Alot Art, Great friendly People, Relaxed Atmosphere, Cheap Dorms and Single Rooms! Took care so long for over a week of my luggage and let me stay even the day without sleeping there. And there is Birdnest one just around the corner with a nice rooftop, where you're free to go! With cool night events.

My girlfriend and I stayed in a double room with ac for 3 nights whilst travelling through Malaysia. The guesthouse is clean, safe and easy to find. The wooden floor boards are a bit loose and if you are a light sleeper, you will struggle to get any rest here. So bring some ear plugs. It is however a great...

Spent a few nights here over New Years and found it comfortable with a friendly vibe. There are lots of people doing work exchanges on projects there. Willi the owner, despite often busy is very warm, welcoming, talkative, interesting and helpful when you do catch a moment of his time. Had a very European style hostel aura to the place...

Hostel was great and clean with a sweet little outside area. What really made it stand out was how superb the staff were! Willi was really helpful with everything from onward buses to other hostel recommendations and when I left my portable charger at the hostel he went above and beyond to reunite me with it even though I had...

Bed Bugz in most of the rooms (3 out of 4 I've tried, they change the sheets and then give the room to the next guest) the owners absolutely doesn't car about it and doesn't care about the guests in general. The staff tried everything they could to not take any responsibility about it, from telling me that it is...

I've came back to this guesthouse three times now for its affordability for solo travelers and great location. The shower pressure is on the weaker side and the rooms I've stayed in did not have windows that peered outside but it is quiet, calm and the kitchen area is large and clean. Overall I felt pretty safe there as well....

We stayed in the dormitory, the place is so nice, the common place are really nice to hang out and meet new people and the shower are clean and with hot water which is rare in Malaysia :) The location is perfect: next to the metro, the free hop-on-off bus and China town. On the top of all that, the...
