It's great to have such an experience here, especially the location. This hostel near from the pasar seni station, so you can go anywhere just by walk to the station

- Backpacking
I just stay here for 1 night but still I feel good. Thank you

This place would be recommended to my friends if they're looking for a guesthouse in KL with low price. Love the service, location and WiFi concept. this guesthouse only provide WiFi in the first floor, which is good for any visitor to hang out with others. I made some friends from other countries since we met at the first floor and had a great conversation then.
- Backpacking
Can ask the owner do laundry at morning and got it back at afternoon (of course paying but it's cheap). Helpful owner. No wifi, no free breakfast. Location about three minutes walk from bus station. it's okay for stay about one or two night.
- Backpacking
Nice hotel. The location is near Pasar Seni Station and Petaling Street (only 5-10 minutes walk). It's 20-30 minutes walk to twin towers and Alor Street from the hotel. The staff is very nice guy. He is very helpful. You can get WiFi at lobby, and some coffee or tea for free.
- Backpacking
It is also a good choice for backpackers, the location is very centralized & the atmosphere there makes you feel that it likes a home.
- Backpacking
Good place for backpacking. Clean room and toilet. Breakfast includes bread, jam, peanut butter, tea/ nescafe. It is near Pasar Seni LRT station and Bus station. Very convenient. If there's only thing I don't like, it is the lack of electric sockets. If you get drained of battery, you have to stay in the common lobby just to charge your devices. The male reception guy was also a bit rude at that time when I asked about the electric socket. Other than those things, everything was very fine.
Highly recommended. Not only offer a great location but the staff is also super friendly and helpful.

Great hostel!
Really like this hostel and have stayed here on a number of occasions, very clean and great location with a 24hr reception and good security. Also free tea and coffee all day is a plus! The only downside is not having wifi in the rooms but other than that I really can't fault the place!

Lovely Hostel, Perfect location right by China town
24 hour reception, very secure! We've stayed here a number of times over the past 4 years and have enjoyed it every time! Both Dorm rooms and private rooms are very clean, bathrooms are modern and the staff here are very welcoming and helpful! Small lockers outside rooms with camera for security, just need your own padlock. The wifi is only available in the reception area, but there are plenty of seats to get comfy on and signal is strong! Breakfast is toast with a selection of nut butter and jams and free tea and coffee all day! Wouldn't stay anywhere else when visiting KL :)

Accessible, clean and affordable
The location is very ideal as it is near the Pasar Seni station and bus stop. You can explore the whole city for free via the GoKL bus which has a stop nearby. Near Chinatown and Central Market. Ideal place to stay if you are into shopping and food trip. I stayed in a 4 bed all female room. The mattresses were comfortable. The air condition works well. The bathrooms are kept tidy and clean. The whole place is very comfy from the common area to the rooms. They provide breakfast from 7 am to 11 am. Friendly and attentive staff. Would recommend to others especially for those who are traveling solo and looking for an affordable and convenient place to stay.

Comfortable beds, great common area, near Central Market
This is a fairly large hostel right next to the Central Market in the Chinatown area of KL. Very close to Pasar Seni LRT and bus stop. There is a nice, spacious common area downstairs which usually has a number of people in it and was generally quite sociable. I met a few people over breakfast which was nice as a solo traveller. Wifi is only available downstairs (there is patchy reception on the first floor as well). Standard breakfast of toast and spreads is provided with tea and coffee always available. Filtered water was not available however there was a dispenser nearby where you could fill your bottle with filtered water for a few sen. Beds and pillows were the best I've had in Malaysia. Bathroom was clean, modern and well-ventilated. Overall I had a great stay at the Explorers such that I booked it again when I returned to KL later in my trip!
