I stayed here about 10 years ago with some friends before all the skyscrapers around even existed. At that time it served as a functional, clean and central place to stay. Today at 110RM per night for a 2-person room that is no longer the case. The bed is ok but the bathroom needs a serious overhaul. Ever heard of...

Located only a 3min walk to KL Sentral it is in an excellent location. Easy access to the airport, city and other attractions. The Indian food near the YMCA is delicious! Beds were comfy and bathroom was basic but all we needed. Breakfast is a choice of 2 options, usually 1 option is noodles. Will definitely stay here again

This hostel is situated in Brickfield, also known as mini lndia. Very convenient for back packers as hostel is only a few minutes walking distance to the main MRT station. For security wise, it is good as outsiders are not easily accessible to your room. However, the room is a bit small and old. The furniture and fittings have worn...

I stayed two nights at the YMCA during my recent visit to KL. Very neat, centrally located. Spacious rooms. safe for all types of tourists. But the only problem ais the attitude of the front office staff. They are arrogant and short tempered. They should be given proper training, otherwise all the positives of the hostel will turn negative
