Pretty much says it all... y youcant stay anywhere better in KL. Great rooms, location, company. No need to look anywhere else for your accommodation in KL!!

Very close to LRT means easy to get in and out from anywhere.

This backpacker hostel is a very popular choice, so book ahead. It's a quick 3-5 min walk from the subway, and staff are very friendly and helpful. The hostel has a modern look with concrete floors and open concept. We had a room with a queen bed, very clean, comfy and airconditioning was great in muggy KL. The shared bathrooms were a bit strange as they were open air and right beside the dining area, but very clean and VERY nice hot showers with lots of water pressure :) Great after long travels in Asia with low pressure showers! The only thing was that being on the main floor, and backing onto the alley behind, we were woken up early by vendors chopping food to set up their stall for the day.
Breakfast was included and although basic, toast, jams, peanut butter, bananas and coffee/tea, was fresh and enough to start the day. Wifi was quick and there was a coffee shop/restaurant attached with good food options.

This is a relatively new backpacker hostel (opened a few years ago) and it is obvious that the world-travelled owner has seen quite a number of other hostels and adopted some of the best features for his place. For example, big lockers in the dorms where you can stuff your round-the-world backpack into (bring a padlock though), long-term lockers, separate TV room, free WiFi, amongst other things. The place is clean, the mattresses are of high quality, the staff is knowledgeable and friendly, there is a nightwatchmen on duty, so all the relevant basics are met.
However, I don't think the hostel is as extraordinary as one might expect after reading all the high praise here and on other review pages. I have stayed in three different rooms and they all smelled more or less repulsively moldy. Some of the rooms are very close to communal areas and the doors are thin - so don't forget to bring ear plugs. Nevertheless, after you have experienced much worse during your time in Malaysia this is a long longed-for retreat in a crazy city.

Took the 6 bed_room and the room was clean. Loved the super single bed which was big and comfy pillow. Each bed had its own power point and a reading light with a shelf in case you need to do some typing on your laptop. Locker provided was huge with compartments which was convinient. It has a small compound to hang out or smoke. Its a quiet hostel even with full occupancy as guest and staff mind their own business. Tips: bring your own towel and toiletries as it is not povided. If you need tooth paste, shampoo its best to buy at Guardian pharmacy just at the corner of the street as limited choice is sold at the hostel and more expensive. Simple breakfast of toast anf coffee/tea provided FOC or you can have breakfast at the LOKL cafe.

We arrived hot and bothered due to walking through muggy conditions. Backhome double room was air conditioned, very spacious, lots of storage compartments. There was a sink in our room which was handy. The bed was huge and very comfortable. There was free wi-fi all day. There was free tea and coffee all day. It was a 5 minute walk to the mono-rail which enabled you to get to the Chinese market quickly and hassle free.
The toilets and showers were clean and the showers were powerful and refreshing.
