All of them are locals and very helpful, especially Ivy. They gave me lots of suggestions about tourist attractions and transportation tips. in KL. - Cozy atmosphere. The common area really encourages travellers from around the world to mingle and chill. They also have a balcony area where you can enjoy your drink and look at the street lights and bars at night. - Breakfast was awesome, the best actually. They serve eggs, orange juice, coffee, toast etc. - Bed was super comfy. Each bed has its own lamp and curtain. Locker with key were provided. The room that I stayed in was a 12 -14 mixed dorm. A bit crowded, but didnt matter much too me. I spent most of my time outside the hostel anyways. - Bathroom was very clean and creatively decorated. - Location: Only 5-10 minutes walk from Pasar Seni train station. Pasar Seni station is only 1 station away from KL Sentral. From Iron Inn, you can also walk to the bus station where you can catch a bus to KLIA (KL International Airport). From Pasar Seni station to the hostel, some people might find the neighborhood a little bit dangerous, but to me it was fine. Lots of lights and people. I didnt feel unsafe unsafe or anything. Just had to be careful with my belongings . Bad things can happen anywhere. - Highly recommended!!! :))

Hostels. What are they?

Way more than just a cheap place to sleep, hostels are a social way to travel and meet like-minded people. Common areas like shared kitchens or games rooms are great ways to swap tips, tricks and travel stories with backpackers from all over the world.

Hostels have come a long, long way since the first youth hostel opened in 1912. From budget 'crash-pads' to five-star 'poshtels', today, hostels are for everybody, so whether you'd prefer a bed in a shared dorm or your own private room, you'll find most hostels are cheaper than a local hotel and far more fun.
