I have stayed at this hostel 3 times now and for one night each time. It is good location and very close to the shops and resturants, etc. The man even arranged a taxi to the airport for me on both occasions that I had to get up very early (3.30am) so I could be at the airport for 4.30am...

I stayed at the Red Palm By myself on May 2010 and found it to be quite nice. It's not far from the Monorail Train Station which hooks up to other rail lines including the KL Express to the airport. The staff was friendly and very informative on transportation, must do's/don'ts, restaurants, what to avoid, the sites, and the cost...

I stayed here for a couple of nights after flying into KL. The entrance isn't signposted but the directions on the website make it easy to find. I stayed in the single room, it was very clean and the bed was comfortable. The air-conditioning wasn't as good in this room compared to the dorms but with the fan it was...

I stayed with Red Palm after a couchsurfing experience gave me and my bags a horrible bedbug infestation. Despite showing up on their doorstep with a problem like this, they were more than understanding and helped me clean my bags and clothes in a day so I could make a connecting flight out. Prices are excellent, location is excellent (bars...

The hostel has no sign so you have to look carefully for the 2 red doors on the balcony above the entrance. They have a 6 person dorm, single and double rooms. Breakfast is included, which is toast, cereal, tea, and coffee. In the kitchen is a water filter with cold and hot water that i used to fill up...

Location is in golden triangle of KL, so you may shopping, eat and go to Bus terminal very conveniently from this hostel. Got a double bedroom, AC is okay, but no ceiling-replaced with a hanging cloth only. Shared bathroom is available only 1 upstairs, another at downstairs. Makes it long queue if the hostel is fully booked. Female staffs are...

Though the beginning of my stay seemed rather inauspicious (came in really early, everything was closed and no one answered wrattling, calling, ringing the bell. Looked a little forlorn and worn down on the outside...), but when I stepped in at last this place was like home, but better! The girls there were absolutely lovely, helping me out with anything,...

The location is brilliant, but the best reason to stay at this hostel is for the warm, friendly atmosphere. I had the best couple of days here. Staff welcome you by name and make you feel like part of their family. The small size (only accommodates about a dozen people) and good common areas make this a cosy and sociable...
