The hostel is very sociable and a good place to meet fellow travellers. The staff are friendly and helpful, and it's good value for money. The breakfast is good, including fresh fruit if you're early enough. It is available till 12, which is very convenient. Free Milo and Teh Tarik all day is also a nice touch.

very friendly staff, 24h reception (we arrived 8h later because of a delayed flight, but our room was ready for us anyways.) they are willing to inform on sights and transportation and give out schedules. there is a book shelf where you can borrow books and travel guides and real coffee for breakfast.

This place made me feel at home since the first moment. They even write your name on a welcome board if you make a booking. :) Friendly and useful staff, always with a smile. They provide good breakfast and keep things outside, so you can wake up late and still eat. Free coffee, free tea and free water. It gave the feeling their priority is to make you feel confortable instead of making a profit out of you. Super clean, they even make your bed every morning.

Very helpful and friendly staff always willing to help and say hello whenever they see you. Free breakfast, tea and coffee until 1pm (perfect for those days you want to wake up late!). Very clean hostel with lots of information and good wifi throughout rooms and lounge areas. Hot showers with complimentary shampoo and shower gel. Free luggage storage facility if your leaving KK for day or two on a trip this is very useful!

This hostel is a great place to stay in kk... we actually travelled through 3 times and stayed here everytime! It is clean, tidy, has good sized rooms and decent wifi. The breakfasts are great and available all morning (most of the time all day too!). Good location within kk and easy to get around.

Would definitely recommend. Close to the waterfront, markets, restaurants, banks etc - great location. Super friendly and accommodating staff. Breakfast always has some sort of cake - what a bonus. Tours can be arranged if you wish. Rooms are exactly what you need with plug socket by each bed. Always clean and tidy.
