Liked: Free drinking water, big common area with sofas and TV, right next to Swiss Inn which offers great breakfast and meals, fast elevator (doors close immediately!)

Disliked: Be aware that this place has central airconditioning, meaning that you can't control the temperature or air circulation in your room. Although it is actually quite good, some people may not like it, for instance if you have a cold.

Liked: The hostel is clean and there is a nice atmosphere. The Staff is Always gentle and they help you if you have questions. I Always found the bathrooms clean. It Is really central, in China Town, very funny place.

Disliked: You cannot close preoperly the dormitory's doors. The walls are open, so you can hear some noise.

Liked: Stayed nearly a week. Attentive, knowledgable and friendly staff. Good Beds, Nice and HOT water showers ... free good WiFi reception in the rooms ... good TV reception .quick laundry service ..Generaly very quiet as no window in room. Smack dab in the middle of MONSTER MARKET, Handy to food outlets ...

Disliked: No individual A/C controls in room, (set too low) My room 418 extremely small, but ok, no fridge in room (minor issue) only real downside no window, but added to quietness.

Liked: Good location in Chinatown besides the vivid Night Market. A short walk to the monorail. Clean and safe deposit box in the lobby. Around 20 percent discount of the breakfast buffet at the neighbor hotel Swiss Inn when you mention you stay at Chinatown 2.

Disliked: The Wireless coverage in the building was good, but the Internet itself was unstable. Resorting to many people coming down to the lobby using stationary desktop instead. Which is a paid service.

Liked: The staff were happy to help and spoke good English. Free wifi in all rooms which was quite fast. Location is good if you want to be in middle of china town (very hectic at night) As you head up petaling street from the main sign at the bottom china town hotels are on the left hand side about 500mtrs up

Disliked: Walls are paper thin and you hear every shower and toilet flush from surrounding rooms.

Liked: right in the centre of chinatown so close to markets. property was clean and there is free wifi although the computers are not free to use and can be a bit slow. cheap place to stay and decent enough value.

Disliked: this is a hotel but with an area adapted for dorms. the dorms are like little huts placed in a large room up a few steps from the lobby and the walls dont reach the ground or the ceiling so you can hear everything from other "dorms". this wasnt that bad (unless you get a bad snorer) and it wouldnt put me off staying here again. There was only one toliet but there never seemed to be a que for it when we stayed.
