Awesome vibe. Friendly atmosphere. Suitable for solo travelers. Good for traveling with friends.”

I have been travelling to Kuala Lumpur since Very young age of my, but I have never came across any hostel like Dorms KL2. This time suggests by my friend so stayed. While staying in Dorms KL2, I was in love with each and everything of this hostel. The Manager of the hostel (Mr. Pandu, it’s his nickname) well behaved and helpful nature. The stuffs of the hostel are equally friendly and helpful (Miss. Sayam, Miss Taniya ). As my stay was during new year, far from family and friends but did not realised as the hostel organised so many activities and new year evening party for all in-house guest. Great location, Near public transport and so many food options. Clean rooms and bathrooms. Great beds and okay furniture in acceptably kept up rooms. Overall Best value for money. In end I would love to thanks the hostel manager Mr. Pandu and all the stuffs, for making my stay and new year evening so wonderful.

Excellent”

We stayed there for 3 nights in a seperated room with a double deck bed. The room is not that big but it was enough for us and reasonable for that price. The staff, Raj, and some other ladies were so friendly and helpful recommending places for us to visit around. It's also not so far from mrt/lrt station and the Chinatown, just a few minutes walking. The no shoes policy kept it very clean. The bathroom was clean and with a hot shower, I couldn't ask for more. Everything was so nice here. I'd recommend this place and would love to come back if I visit KL again.

One of the best hostels I've stayed in. ”

This place was an absolute pleasure from the second I walked through the door. It's really conveniently situated near train and bus stations, making it easy to see the sights. The place is really new and a spotless, has a shared kitchen and nice social area next to reception where you can meet people or chill and watch the TV. The pub crawl on a Saturday is a great way to meet people and have a good time in KL without breaking the bank. Toilets are spotless, with the best shower I've had while I've been travelling. Rooms are spacious and cool, cleaned everyday. But it is the staff that make this place the best Hostel in KL. From the cleaners to the lads on reception, Yuri and Raj, all absolute stars with great personalities that made my trip a real treat. You'd be a buffoon to stay anywhere else.

KL Dorms - Great Atmosphere”

I personally enjoyed my stay in the dorms. There's a nice main area - its cosy while you can find a quiet place too. All kind of people are gathering there, the rooms were super clean, nice + good size lockers. The staff is truly helpful and sensitive to help as best as they can. I recommend you staying there also because there are amazing restaurants around and it's quite central for the attraction you want to visit (or party too!)

Very good”

We stayed in Dorms KL for the second time after previously visiting in January where we had a great experience for a decent price. This time, the price was more expensive, the staff weren't as welcoming/helpful and our room smelled musty and unclean. Despite that, the bathrooms here are one of the main reasons we returned, one of the best showers we've had on our travels. Beds were comfy, just a shame about the smell. Disappointing for a second stay but I think we just had some bad luck.

Very clean, great location, best showers...difficult to get a good nights sleep”

The hostel is the cleanest I have stayed in around SE Asia. Staff were friendly enough and was great to have free tea/coffee all day. Location is great and close to LRT and walkable distance to most sights. Unfortunately, I have a few complaints....1) the bed and pillow was extremely uncomfortable 2) I really disliked the provided blanket, it was like trying to sleep under my microfibre towel and stuck to everything. 3) it was noisy at night, not from outside noise or what was going on in the common room but from other guests. I was staying in a private room which was essentially a large room that had been divided into 6 private rooms. Unfortunately, you could hear everything going on. And no one knew how to open or close a door without slamming it. I had 2 sleepless nights from people slamming doors and waking me up. This isn’t the hostels fault and other guests should be more considerate of others. Sound proofing would be good! I have now moved to a quieter hostel for a good sleep!
