    so quiet evironment, relaxation, comfort, cleanliness! and breakfast till 12pm.living hall is super size. security cameras. .. lockers facility.. smoking zone at roof topnd its amaxing view at night.. beverages sell at very reasonable price so we dont need to go out to the store especially raining seasons now. helpfull staff and friendly...

    however staff forgot to introduce me locker facility .. and case of stolen money happened to me and unothing can be done because no security cameras im the room (which is fair enough).. i wish the staff iintroduce me earlier the locker facility. i hope the staff aware more of the incident could happened even for the first time.. unlucky me...

    The staff is very friendly, he explained us about the facility and the do and don't very well at the first time we checked in. They also have an information board that provide all information we need about transportation which is very usefull for backpacker. The wifi, breakfast and other facilities are very worthed with the prices...:) I guess i'm gonna back again to that hostel..:)

    It is located above the bar, so we hv to deal with the loud sound.

    Location is great, walking distance from Petronas Twin Towers, front office manager is very polite and helpful, decent price.

    There are no lights and electricity near each bed. It is pretty noisy during the night.

    My stay was great. The staff was very helpful. The facilities in this price are far better than the other hostels provide like breakfast and free hi speed. Thoroughly enjoyed my stay. Met new people in the living room. The hostel is located on a party street so had great fun with new found friends. Next time I'm in KL I will be staying here again for sure.

    Staff friendly who informs very well about the services in the hostel. Good and complete services (quite quantity of showers, cooking fournitures, free wi-fi, laptop of free use...) Very clean. Quiet in the night (even being close to a noisy area, you do not hear these noises in your room). Very good location, in the Bukit Bintang Street, with many options of places for lunch / dinner, with music in the night... Very close (5 minutes walking) to the commercial area in KL and to the Bukit Bintang Monorail Station. You can fastly arrive by public transportation to different places of interest in the city (included Chinatown and city center). Cheap. If you don't mind sharing room, i recommend you this hostel.

    Some areas are not enough illuminated, as for exemple, the washbasin. Not the rooms, the kitchen and the living room, but other areas are a little old. I don't see big problems on that...

Very good, Wifi 27 Hours Available @ no extra charges.

    It's a cosy place to stay with friendly staff, location is near the monorail along with many other great places of interest. A food street and many shopping malls nearby.

    It was little hard to locate the hostel.

    Serenity is located in a great place for bars and drinking, however it is really hard to get any sleep at the place. The walls are thin so you can hear the music coming through from next door. The place is really cheap. The rooms are clean.

    My first impression was not a good one. I tried to leave my bag before I checked in (6am) and they tried to charge me for staying that morning. The person at the front desk was not happy that I wanted to leave my bag and come back later. Finally he accepted to take my bag but he just put it in the corner of the lobby. They could work on their service. My bed was clean, however the shared facilities were a little dirty. The showers could use a good cleaning. Serenity does not do enough "up keep" to maintain a nice place. For example, the faucet was loose, missing tiles, weak water pressure, and the water tank on the roof was not covered properly (bad tasting water).

    The place was very clean and tidy and the staff friendly and helpful. It was one of the nicest hostels I have stayed in, highly recommended.

    I suppose the only problem I had was finding the place, when I was there it was above an Irish bar and not above a Carlsberg sign as a previous reviewer has suggested. I would look for the old style pub sign with a backpacker silhouette and Serenity Hostels on it to help you find the place.

    Location, friendly stuff, price. Only 5 mins to monorail.

    Problems with wi-fi and loudness: working site nearby, some guys like to watch TV during the night. You should have ear plugs.

    Very hard place to find. Not a single sign. It's above an Irish Pub, the only one on that street. Lots of drinking places and restaurants in that street. There was not a single client in my dorm. Good a/C. Newly renovated dorms. Clean, but no soap in shower. Very nice location. Friendly Indian owners. Free wifi. Excellent for the 6 euros I paid.

    No sign, hard to find. Have their phone number on you.

    A strategic Location

    Placing female and male customers in the same room for a night while other rooms are still not filled up.

  • Group of friends

    Clean, good location

    The confirmation of reservation (booking) is sucks, they don't tell me that they not have room anymore, so, they transfered me to the other hostels. And it wasn't good.
