Had a fantastic stay here for three nights in a twin room with a friend. Room was clean and comfortable, with good a/c and lock boxes under the bed for valuables. Beds were a little hard, but think it's due to the mattresses being new, and the blanket is just the right thickness for a Malaysian night.
Staff were super friendly, speak excellent English and offered to clean the room and replace towels after 2 days which is unheardof in hostels, and also good quality shower products were supplied in the shared bathrooms, which were kept clean and stocked with all essentials throughout the day. I had my laundry done too which was done quickly and returned dry, ironed and folded.
Breakfast is basic, but free, and a nice touch, with free tea and coffee throughout the day, and they have a very reasonably priced fridge selling drinks also.
Location is perfect, everything of note is within 20mins walk, or if you're feeling lazy, it's right by the metro, bus station, monorail stop AND train station, and there are plenty of restaurants, bars and markets within a couple minutes walk.
Only fault I could find is that the internet is a bit unreliable, but no more so than any other Asian hostel, and when working it's super fast!
All in all, completely recommend this hostel, can't see there being better value in KL!!!
