Liked: The staff were EXCELLENT! Really great people, very friendly and helpful. The Friday night open mic was really fun - artistic and involved everyone that wanted to join in. The hostel is part of a larger artsy community within KL - not what I expected to find in KL, and really great to experience. I highly recommend this hostel to anyone who is interested in a more engaging and interesting hostel experience - all within an easy walk of KL Sentral, the main train station in town.

Disliked: Since they are so new, there are still a few little things they need to sort out, but not much.

Liked: Very clean and new, with very personable staff.

Disliked: It wasn't a big deal, but the walls of the private rooms didn't reach the ceiling. But it was very quiet and peaceful, so it wasn't a big deal.
