            Even though they didn't give any locker to put your things, each bed is covered by curtain. Thus, it is safe to keep you belonging and it is very privacy. The toilets space is limited and please bring your own toiletries. BTW, if you want a great sleep experience, do bring along an earplug. Overall, don't have much to complaint as the price is very reasonable compare to others.

            Worse Hostel”

            + Staffs are nice and really helpful + Location is great and near to almost with everything. - Bed, pillow smell like a sweat - Toilet never been cleaned - Noisy - The worst part is there's one crazy guy stay next to my bed. He talking by himself. Accused me with "talking s#it" about him. Pick a fight with me from the day he enter the hostel until I check out.

            FULL of mosquitoes. No fans for your bed and the central AC isn't cold enough.

            1 shared room with approx. 20 beds, bed sheets dirty, bathroom as well and the best: they will fully charge you the RM 10 tax added to the price Agoda is showing - they are obviously cheating! Never again.

            The hostel it's in a very nice location, very near Chinatown and next to the central market, a block away from the subway station! The dormitory was clean and the bunk beds comfortable enough, only thing I didn't like is that there is no western style toilets but it's not a big deal.

            I really am fond of the excellently friendly staff that welcomed me. The location is strategically perfect as it is located in the centre of both Pasar Seni and Masjid Jamek station. Walking distances between these 2 lines is like 5 mins. You could choose the line; MRT or LRT.

            My bed is fully dusty and dirty. After that i asked to change new one but staff said NO because it's the time to change. But after the stuff got that I had an allergic , they came to change for me immediately. It's so good service. The bathroom was so bad smell and dirty. They can't accept cashless or credit card.
