The place in bukit bintang beside berjaya times square. How to get this hostel from kl central or terminal bersepadu you can take a monorel to imbi stasion and walk 5 minutes or you can take rapid kl to hang tuah and walk 5 minutes , i think this hostel is clean , comfortable and cheap for backpacker..

I really wanted to like this place, but they made it very difficult for me. This is why: - The staff are so rude. When you say hello to them they either completely ignore you or they just look at you and then at their phones. They talk loudly to each other late in the evening and told me and...

The capsule/pod itself was ok, mattresses very thin, but cosy to sleep in and have all you need. Ok for 1-2nights and ok price..wanted the experience of staying in one but dreaded having to...

Imagine the hostel experience, but with much more comfort and privacy for the same price. I had a really good night at the capsule( felt like Bruce Willis in the 5th element). Bad side of the place is that it needs a door for the sleeping area, that would feel secure and silent. There a lockers, but they also say,...

Visited UFO last week. Nice small room which come with privacy. If you do cost benefit analysis UFO is the way to go. Highly recommended if you are planing for short stop over at KUL. They charge 30 RM per night with 20 RM refundable security fee.

Staying at this place for just one night 8/5/15. Take care of your toilet cleanliness! Its worst! But, its alright if you just stay for one or two nights. This place should be nice if they take care of the cleanliness. Room conditions was nice, comfort and safe. Dont worry about your stuff, they provide private locker for you.
