Stayed here for three nights in between India and Myanmar and found it a great place to stay. Very friendly staff and was within walking distance of restaurants, the Twin Towers (about half hour walk) and right above a 7-Eleven. Would definitely stay here again if I come back to KL.

We stayed in Hostel Cosmopolitan for two nights and it was okay, nothing more, nothing less. Accommodation was basic, but seems to be clean. Our room was without window, although it certainly need some airing to get rid of that rancid smell. We had room with fan and with A/C also and it worked well. I didn't like, that you...

I was a little wary of this place as it was so cheap and the reviews were mixed, but it was a great budget stay in KL. The place was clean, the beds were comfy, the Wi-Fi was pretty decent and the staff were friendly. It's not tanked up with amenities but that's why it's so cheap. There are also...

I stayed here for one night with my partner during our travels in July 2014. Our taxi driver really struggled to find the hostel and when we eventually did we were a bit skeptical as from the outside it looked like a disused building! However once inside the staff were friendly and there was a nice, welcoming atmosphere. We had...

I liked this place so much, that I went back and stayed again. It's a backpacker hostel, but I stayed in their private rooms with private bathrooms. Very close to a metro station. My rooms were clean. There is free wifi accessible inside the room. It's a great place to meet travellers. The reception staff and really friendly and helpful....

I got what I paid for. A $9.42 private room in the heart of KL with AirCon. I also got bedbugs, a filthy shared bathroom with plenty of fungi friends and pretty rude owners who appeared very pissed at me for having the nerve to rent one of their hotel rooms. Also note: toilet paper, soap, towels, and luggage storage...

I stayed here with my 11 year old son in 2014. We were backpacking around Malaysia, cash was low when we were in KL, and Hotel Cosmopolitan was all we could afford. You know, it was fine. We paid a budget price and we got budget accommodation. Our room was pokey and had no windows, but it was clean. The...

The hotel is cheap but located in a very convenient location. It's clean and close to many local food stalls. It's easy to get to the city as the hotel is close to a monorail station. I strongly recommend this place to both locals and tourists.

Cockroaches fell out of air conditioner when i turned it on. Rooms are windowless. Place is run like a budget airline you must pay for towel rental as well as toilet paper. Owner is very curt and rude with people. Dirty and for the price there are better options in kl.
