Really good Hostel
Really good hostel in KK. The whole place is spotless, extremely clean. Beds are comfortable, with 2 pillows. Bed sheets are clean and smells of clean laundry. Rooms are spacious, with bunk beds, plenty of space for backpacks and lockers. There is air conditioning although this is not blasted at 16celsius while it's 35 outside, it's set at a decent level. Bathrooms have good showers and clean toilets. I have not used the kitchen much so I can only say it's a nice space with windows. Nice few places to eat in the area.

Good place for backpackers.
Perfect place for backpackers that want to get a decent place to stay at a reasonable price. Also easy to find a place to eat nearby. Can also cook a simple fast food, rest and watch television provided. The toilet also clean.

Understanding staff
Staff automatically allocate me in one dorm which is for 6 person but it's only me. She considerate me as a muslim girl that cannot be sharing bedroom with guys. The facilities perfectly enough for a traveller. An iron and hairdryer is provided. Bathroom sharing. In the bedroom dorm for 6 person, consists of 3 double decker, towels, locker, a fan, air-conditioner, and external plug for charging our devices. It's located near to gaya street which is operate on sunday only and 24 hours shop nearby. It's very convenient. It's only cost me RM25 per night.

My home away from home
Arrived in KK after 7 days of my 10 days ASEAN back packing trip. After longing to talk to a fellow Filipinino, finally I met, Ms. Marina, the hostel care taker :) Sensi Backpackers Hostel really gave an aura of a home away from home. I almost forget to roam around KK because I'm too relaxed staying on the hostel. The location was great, almost near everywhere! The facilities and design were really amusing, it will give you the comfort of a home. The stairway is more like an art gallery! And the best asset of this Hostel is the caretaker and the receptionist, Ms. Marina, you will really feel the native Filipino with the touch of Malay, If your'e staying in Sensi Backpacker's Hostel, feel free to call her "Ate Marina" means sister, and she will love it.

Comfortable enough but lacks atmosphere
Decent place and cheap. Beds are comfortable (2 big pillows) and clean, and there is aircon in the dorm rooms. There is one kitchen/common room with a tv but it really lacks atmosphere and that backpacker vibe. When I was there there seemed to be many family holiday makers as opposed to backpackers, But no issues for a good sleep after a long flight.
