Ideally located in Bukit Bintang and close to Chinatown, clean facilities, helpful en welcoming staff, pretty decent breakfast :). Single room was big, but quite noisy because of the wooden floor of the room above

Spent 3 nights in Red Palm and it was good. We got ourselves double bed with aircon and the aircon works good. spacious room and a balcony . The living room was spacious with a tv. The only downside was the bathroom where u have to share with other travellers aswell. Overall it was nice.

I've lost count of the number of times I've stayed here on my Asian stopovers. The six bed dorm is a steal - RM 30 for a comfortable nights sleep, basic breakfast and complementary tea and coffee all day. The location, nearby eateries and friendly staff make this place all the more worthwhile. Transport options such as Monorail, tasty restaurants...

This hostel is brilliant. As a family of 7, we pre-booked rooms. There is a choice of private rooms and dorms. The rooms only have a fan so it can get quite hot and the rooms are small but we never feared that our things may be at risk of disappearing despite sharing with other travellers. Breakfast is provided and...

I have been staying at the Red Palm Hostel in the heart of Bukit Bintang whenever I am in KL. It is centrally located near the Bukit Bintang LRT station. It is within walking distance to the top shopping malls: Pavilion, Times Square, and BB Plaza. It is one block from the famous Hawker Street night food market where you...

This is a nice little hostel. The staff were welcoming and knew my name on arrival. One of the cats had kittens recently so there were 5 kittens chilling which was cool. I was in the private room which has it's own air conditioner so worth the little bit extra. Be aware that the stairs are quite steep up into...

Disclaimer: cheap accommodations in KL just suck. That said: Goods: nice vibe, cute kitties roaming around, location. Bads: -> no AC in the private room (there's a fan though) -> the mattress was ridiculously old with a huge hole in the middle. I never thought a mattress can get that bad. When I informed the owner all she had to...

I stayed in Red Palm for the first time two years ago and this year I went back to KL and didn't even think about going anywhere else than Red Palm. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful, the atmosphere in the common area is cozy and beds are comfortable. There are plenty of novels and travel books for you...

I really enjoyed my time at the Red Palm- so much so that I stayed there when I came back through KL. The place is pretty standard as far as guest houses go- communal area downstairs and rooms (dorms and privates) upstairs with a small breakfast of cereal, toast and bananas being served every morning. What really set this place...
