Great location, value for money, and clean rooms and common area is cozy
I stayed here for 3 nights before climbing mount KK. I think the hostel is great value for money, considering its great location (walking distance to major attractions in KK) as well as cleanliness. the time I went wasn't exactly a peak time for travelling to KK, so their rooms weren't full. They were really accomodating in a way that they let 2 of us (mother and son) use a 4-person room provided that people may come in at any night. We said ok great, and turns out we had the whole room for us for the 3 nights - with the price of only 2 bunk beds. I think it was fortunate for us to be able to stay during non-peak season, but also thanks to the considerations of the staff there. Most rooms come with 4 beds, so I guess it would be fantastic for a group of 4. The common area had a couple of guitar, a couple of computers we could use, some books and cozy common area.

Quiet and clean hostel
I stayed a week in Refarer Hostel. It's really clean compaired to other SEA hostels. The price is a little bit high for a dorm but reasonable. They provide free towels, breakfast and computers. Also their is a nice hangout area in the lobby. The dorms are reall bright and have four beds. I would choose Refarer again.
