        Great stay”

        Amazing location. 10 minutes walk to Bukit Bintang, 10 minutes walk to Imbi monoral station, 3 minutes walk to famous Jl.Alor, 20 minutes walk to Puduraya bus station. The place is clean, wifi is great, the staff are so friendly, I was in love with Leo the cat and Billy - the owner's daughter. Met lots of nice people there. Nasi Kandar restaurant in front of the hostel is 24 hours and also serve amazing food. The bed is so comfortable, I slept nicely through the whole 2 nights. The only cons was for my experience in particular maybe, because I was staying in 6 bed dorm where there was a couple who keep on doing PDA in front of me, and at night this couple switched off the AC, so I feel suffocated and can't sleep and decided to move to single room immediately (with extra paying,o f course) But the girls in receptionist really helpful in responding my request and once I had my single room, I was content and happy, no complaint at all Definitely will come back again if I visit KL

        Dorms KL is highly recommended for budget travellers. The rooms and bathrooms were clean. The staff were really friendly and helpful. Our check-in was really slow but I understood that the person at the reception was either still new and learning the process or she was just filling in for another employee. The breakfast was good though it was only bread and coffee. The location is also great, just near a food market and a few minutes from an mrt and monorail station. Overall, we really enjoyed our short stay here.

Very good location, there is a good and cheap restaurant just outside the hostel. There is a no shoes policy which helps keep the place very clean.

        There are plenty of bathrooms. The location is very good and there is an Indian restaurant right in front of the hostel. The best things are the big lounge with plenty of seets and the bar upstairs. There is a happy hour every day and it's very easy to meet new people there. But you can also just chill and enjoy a beer if you are not into going out or so. Then the staff- each of them was super helpful and welcoming. Greetings to Sam- such a great person.

        I felt welcome from the first minute. The staff does a great job. Especially Sam, who was so helpful and friendly. You can chill at the lounge or terasse and in the evening people get together at the bar and go out at 12 to the area with bars and clubs 5 minutes away. But you can also still sleep in quiet if you decide to.

        Clean, secure, well-run place to stay. Fun, too. Free breakfast with coffee at the adjoining restaurant is a bonus. Although I read this was a party hostel after I arrived, I think it's just a friendly place that knows how to show guests a good time. A bargain, especially considering breakfast, free towel and beer at a good price. I'll be back.

The restaurant itself is great, too. Room is a bit small but AC was on the whole time if I remember correctly, and there are plenty of bathrooms and showers that are clean. Staff is nice too

        Everything you need”

        We had a great stay here it has everything you need. The rooms are small but can't complain at a private double room with air con and breakfast! The breakfast is actually a highlight, so so good!

        Cool”

        Staff are really cool and accomodating. Alex took care of everything. The other two girls were just as nice! Make sure to play with their resident kitty. It helps when you're tired. 😊

        Best location for an unbeatable price”

        We had a double bed room with a window and a bunkbed room with window. The rooms are cery small but equiped with an AC and the beds are very comfortable. The toilets and showers where always very clean, we never had to wait and they always had hot water. The staff working their are very nice guys that organize some activities with the guests and have interesting stories to tell. The only minus point is, that the hostel can be loud at night. The hostel itself has a stric quietness policy after 12 but there is a restaurant downstairs that does not belong to the hostel and you can hear people from there. If you are not a light sleeper that shouldnt hinder you to stay here though. Overall we recommend this hostel as for this price with breakfast included (and free water if you ask) you wont find any better.
