Good location and price for 1 night
It was perfect for sleeping near the station and taking the train really early in the morning. It's just 3min away from the station by walk. Anyway, the dorm wasn't so silent and I couldn't sleep so well, but it was worth it anyway.

Great location and value for money
Perfect hostel very close to sentral KL, so it us ideal when you have to get up early to take the express for the airport

Very Good 8.0
The perfect accommodation if you're staying the night before travelling elsewhere in the morning. Service and facilities are perfect although the walls are very thin so if you're staying the night with loud and rowdy people in the next room it can get annoying.
