The best thing about this place is the location. Opposite the back entrance of a massive shopping mall, where as well as great cheap shopping there was a cinema- a ticket was only £2! The Imbi Monorail station was only a 5 minute walk and because the hostel is in the Golden Triangle the main sites were all very close....

We had stayed for 3 Days and the location was very simple to find if you follow the instructions. Less than 5 Mins walk from Imbi Monorail, just walk across the times square bullding ( keep a copy of map) and walk along the curved road along the hotels and you would notice the Hostel easily. With the TImes Square...

For the standards of a hostel, this is an amazing place. The manager was very very friendly, as were the other guests, and the room where I stayed was quiet, cool and quiet spacious with my own locker, although some may find the long narrow rectangular shape of the room (I stayed in a single room) uncomfortable. The free breakfast...

The best thing about this place was the friendly staff We were surprised the shared bathrooms for the private rooms were accessed via the outside balcony But everything else was fairly comfortable and what you'd expect from a hostel

It took us 2 hours to find this place, directions a little tricky from monorail station, but once we realised where we where, its actually less than 5mins walk. The hostel is located directly behind times square shopping mall, which is insanely huge. Even has its own rollercoaster inside and about 10 floors of shops :D - Head to the...

We booked into the Equator having read the reviews on here - we were not disappointed! From the moment we stepped in the door, Hadi (hope I've spelled it right!) had us sorted out, under her wing and all of our problems dealt with. This included helping me track down and have returned to me my hiking boots, which I'd...

Equator is in a great location--2 minute walk to monorail and big air-conditioned mall. It was clean, and the staff were super helpful!

I staying in a private one bed with aircon, and i can't praise this hostel enough. Great location (a couple of minutes from the monorail and Times Square), great communal area (dvd's and books, internet etc), excellent security (gate key, room key, and a locker in the room) and above all it was spotlessly clean.

This is a great place to stay in KL. We enjoyed it so much that we came back here at the end of out trip. The staff were extremely helpful, not only suggesting places to visit but they also allowed us to check in and use the facilites early.They also remembered us on our return a few weeks later. The...
