Liked: The central location is perfect and makes it the only choice for taking the train from KL Sentral to the airport for an early morning flight. There is a decent convenience store neighbouring the hostel and a laundrette about five minutes away. Lockers are provided and I safely left my bag behind reception for a couple of days without any problems. Staff are very friendly.

Disliked: Nothing major really.

Liked: Pleasant communal space.

Disliked: 1.Despite powerful air-conditioners and fans on hot nights the sleeping floors remain uncomfortably hot and humid making a good nights sleep difficult.2. The advertised 'breakfast' is nothing more that cheap supermarket bread and jam or peanut butter with low quality instant coffee or tea. Frankly, it is an insult to call this breakfast.3. The directions for the hostel which accompany the booking confirmation are woefully out of date and not at all helpful.

Liked: Wonderful location, just a few steps away from KL Sentral where you can connect to almost everywhere in KL. There are also many nearby budget restaurants that open late at night, and you do not have to worry about an empty stomach!

Disliked: Should have turned on the ac from 2pm (when it starts getting hot) instead of only from 7pm.
