        Great!”

        Dorms KL was a great choice. Located in the middle of Bukit Bintang (right behind a busy food street and near great cafes and bars). A solid 10 minute walk from the Imbi monorail station and Berjaya Times Square mall. I stayed in a 6 bed mixed dorm. Not sure if it was just our room, but a downside is that for some reason the AC doesn't reach the top bunk so we had to keep it freezing cold so those on top would be comfortable. I happened to be in a bottom bunk and had to wear a jacket and scarf to even attempt sleep! Towels are included, which is great and each room locks with a keycard. Rain showers are fantastic and bathrooms are very clean. Only big downside for me was that someone stole (accidentally borrowed?) my pajamas and water off of my bed. So bizarre. Breakfast is also included (roti canai or toast with butter and jam, coffee or tea) and wifi is fast in the lobby. TV hooked up to Netflix also a plus!

        Great stay”

        Amazing location. 10 minutes walk to Bukit Bintang, 10 minutes walk to Imbi monoral station, 3 minutes walk to famous Jl.Alor, 20 minutes walk to Puduraya bus station. The place is clean, wifi is great, the staff are so friendly, I was in love with Leo the cat and Billy - the owner's daughter. Met lots of nice people there. Nasi Kandar restaurant in front of the hostel is 24 hours and also serve amazing food. The bed is so comfortable, I slept nicely through the whole 2 nights. The only cons was for my experience in particular maybe, because I was staying in 6 bed dorm where there was a couple who keep on doing PDA in front of me, and at night this couple switched off the AC, so I feel suffocated and can't sleep and decided to move to single room immediately (with extra paying,o f course) But the girls in receptionist really helpful in responding my request and once I had my single room, I was content and happy, no complaint at all Definitely will come back again if I visit KL

        Great location, good for budget travellers”

        Pros: ✔️ Supeeer great location, behind Jalan Alor, near Pudu Sentral, quite near MRT Bukit Bintang, Monorail Bukit Bintang, GoKL Bus stop 💯 ✔️ Almost all tourist spots are considered walkable from this place! (Or maybe I just like walking haha) ✔️ Very filling FREE BREAKFAST! ♥️ ✔️ Female dorm available 👍 ✔️ Sufficient no. of shower/toilet rooms ✔️ Friendly vibe 💕 Cons: (Quite tolerable tho) ➡️ Quite noisy, esp. if in 2nd flr. where they hold the dorm parties/events ➡️ No own light per bunk (reading/studying at night is not possible) ➡️ Not ideal for long-term stay coz they don't replace sheets and towel But overall I would still recommend this place to other people 👍

        Amazing hostel”

        Dorms KL is one of the best hostels I've stayed at. The rooms are cleaned regularly, everything is spotless, even the bathrooms. There is always plenty of toilet paper too, sothat's a plus. It was very easy to meet new people and make friends as they have a really cool lounge area with a tv and everything. Every night there was a social activity: movie night, ladies night, pub crawl, beer pong night and so on. I had so much fun there! Also, the staff was incredible. So helpful and friendly, they made my stay there one of the best, I ended up staying 8 nights there haha! There is also a free breakfast from the indian restaurant, which was nice. That place has amazing food, I ended up having lunch and dinner there everyday too. And so cheap too! and they are open 24 hours so if you get hungry in th3 middle of the night, you're all covered! The location is also very good, walking distance to KL tower and Petronas towers, 5 minutes to Jalan Alor street, there are plenty of supermarkets, malls and street food around. It also felt very safe. Thank you to the staff, Greg, Harry, Alberto and Luz, you made that place feel like home for me. I am most definitely going to come back!

        5-days stay”

        The breakfast- 2 pieces of roti canai and kopi o and they were good. (We got to choose either toast or roti canai) I stayed in a single room - no windows, only a small vent above. It is actually a bunk bed, but I got the entire room to myself. There is an aircond in the room. Toilets are clean. The staffs are friendly. Good location: Jalan Alor for food, Pavilion, Lot 10, Fahrenheit 88 for shopping. 5 minutes walk to Jalan Alor for all the touristy food. 5 - 10 minutes walk from/to Bukit Bintang MRT. 10 - 15 minutes walk to Pavilion. Would recommend using the MRT to get to Bukit Bintang rather than monorail. By cash, KL Sentral Monorail to Bukit Bintang monorail: RM2.50 By cash, Muzium Negara MRT (connected to KL Sentral, a little bit of walking distance, but fine for me) to Bukit Bintang MRT: RM1.80 Overall, this place is good value for money.

        The hostel was brilliant! Set in the back of an Indian restaurant (which serves delicious food) and in a perfect location for Bukit Bintang as well as close to all the major 'must sees' in KL! The staff here are simply amazing!!! So helpful, easygoing and approachable. They have social events going on most nights which means it's so easy to meet new, interesting people, and the vibe and environment is just so relaxed and friendly. In fact, it is the best hostel I've ever stayed in for just that reason! Thanks guys!

        I like all of them. Friendly receptionist, cozy bed, delicious breakfast, spacious bedroom, clean bathroom. Walk around 10minutes from monorail Imbi or Bukit Bintang. Surrounded with food stall & minimart. Provide towel as per request Cons: The AC at our room is leaked so the top bed below the AC a little bit wet. Overall very satisfied with this hostel. We'll back when go to KL again.

        Dorms KL is highly recommended for budget travellers. The rooms and bathrooms were clean. The staff were really friendly and helpful. Our check-in was really slow but I understood that the person at the reception was either still new and learning the process or she was just filling in for another employee. The breakfast was good though it was only bread and coffee. The location is also great, just near a food market and a few minutes from an mrt and monorail station. Overall, we really enjoyed our short stay here.

        BEST HOSTEL in KL”

        I loved this place. Dorms Kl is a very sociable place, with superfriendly and dedicated staff. It is located extremly convienent in walking distance to all major attractions and the airport shuttle busstation. The dorms were clean, as wella sthe bathrooms. I particularly liked the bar area where you can chill duringthe day and party at night. It's definitely my number one go to place in KL.

        Great hostel!”

        Great atmosphere and buzz about this hostel. Friendly staff, great value for money given that you get a towel & free breakfast. Perfect location. One thing we did note, the first night we stayed in the 6 bed dorm - perfect, 2nd night in the 8 bed dorm downstairs - much nosier, think it’s beside the laundry room, and the showers are cold.m in the evening and morning. Showers upstairs are great though so would advise going for the 6bed dorm if you can.

        Great Value for Money Close to Jalan Alor”

        Jalan Alor and a lot of cool streetart is literally right around the corner. Located in walking distance to Bukit Bintang Central Station and KLCC it's the perfect accommodation for a touristy stay.

        Acceptable for Such Rate”

        This was my 4th time staying in Dorms KL. The significant change was that now we had to bring our shoes into our rooms, to avoid theft. I was ok with that. My room was surprisingly quiet, although the walls were really thin. I wish it has proper drinking water for the guests as well as door hangers. This was the first time I found the toilet not flushed properly.

        A great place among the city chaos”

        DormsKL is a great hostel in the heart of KL. The facilities are good, the internet is fast, the showers are nice and the A/C is reprieve from sweltering heat of the city. They offer breakfast and there is a 24 hour Indian restaurant there which is amazing. There were plenty of nights where we would stay outside and eat while talking and figuring out what to do. It a place I've gone back to whenever I have a stopover in KL on my way to the next destination. The staff are always good and I'll be back again soon.
