          Hi, I will be in KL from the 31st of Dec '16 to the 3rd of January '17. Do you have 2 beds in a shared dorm available on these dates? Also, we are Indians so I hope there are no policies against us staying at your hostel (certain places seem to be hostile when it comes to Indians). No offense meant by this question! Just need to clarify before I book! Regards, Rishabh
