I've stayed quite often in this place. Because it was so close to Pudu Bus station, had a huge lobby to offer and was OK for the price. But no need anymore to review it further because it has closed in 2013 !! Those days, after a complete renovation you will find a luxury hotel in the very same place.

I guess you get what you pay for and I paid a small price but got even less than what I should get. The rooms were dodgey, dark, and the bed smelled funny. The guy at the reception was not friendly and he looked like he doesn't want to be there or to be dealing with any guests. Not enough...

Think about it only if you are travelling with budget. This is typical hostel with small rooms (but clean) and without service. Location is very good for backackers, near bus station and cheap china town. There is a little problem with noises from road traffic during the night. I heard that now they have new managment and rooms are renovated.
