Booked a private double, arrived late and found it not to be the best area of KL but there was a monorail station nearby so not the end of the world but the area immediately outside the hostel was not great to say the least.
The hostel itself did have internet and the usual hostel facilities expected and the member of staff who greeted us was cool and helpful. The problem was with the room, just the worse ever due to an overwhelming stench of mould. It was apparent that the a/c unit was leaking and without any windows the smell of mould was very bad which was a shame as the room wasn’t actually too bad with a big comfy bed and en suite facilities but seriously, the smell was bad and the walls covered in mould! Additionally, with walls so thing you can hear people snoring through, noise from people coming and going and coming in drunk after 4am meant a good night’s sleep was impossible. Complained to the day staff but was told they were full and as we only had one more night and on a limited budget, chose to tolerate it. There has to be better options than this though in KL.
