For budget conscious study tours in KL, this is a good place. Even better than the usual backpackers hostel, because you have your own bed in a stylish, carpeted room. Also the best part is that is near the KL and NU Sentral, the transportation hub leading to various points in KL, wven to Batu caves and KLIA.

Room was decent sized however it was rather old and dirty, we entered the room to see stains on the sheets and the shower facilities...

Stayed here 2 years ago and was ok so decided to bring the family this time. Bad move. This time was awful. The smell of the rooms and poor hygiene was gross. One star for location. Reading their annual report it appears the building is to be shortly replaced. So I gather they have decided to let it run down....

Have stayed at YMCA many times when passing through KL mainly due to proximity to KL Sentral railway station which is 3 min walk away.
