A GUEST FRIENDLY PLACE FOR SOLO OR GROUP TRAVELLER”

Fern Loft is ideally situated in the heart of Chinatown in KL and its close proximity with rail and road transport hub is a plus. All amenities are available within couple of minutes of walking distance. I would highly recommend Fern Loft to Single Traveler as its a safe and economical place for exploring KL.

A good one night stay on a layover”

Location, closeness to cheap public transport and helpful staff

I was bacpacking with a friend and stayed in Fernloft for one night dýrin a layover. The staff was very friendly and H elpful, the hostel is located near a bus/metro station (1 min walk). Located in chinatown so you can explore the market and street food which is very fun and you can get cheap street food there. Walking distance from shopping district (takes about 15-20 min for those who want to walk) or you can take the free bus located just across the street from the hostel.

Clean room and great view from the top!”

cleanliness, terrace on the rooftop

Me and 2 of my friends stayed there in a 24-beds dormitory. It was really clean, you get your own sheet and towel. The best thing in this place is a rooftop - you can sit there and talk the whooole night! It's pretty cheap and it's a good value for this money. Don't eat a breakfast, it may not be fresh. If I'll be in Kuala Lumpur ever again, I'm going to stay there.

Great location”

Location and Internet

The hotel's location was the best thing about this place for us. Being in Chinatown, it means you're within walking distance to local food stalls, shopping places for the wife, and easy access to LRT and the free around-the-city bus line. The Internet was the next best thing for us. Being next to the receptionist's area, we had an amazing fast wi-fi. However, being next to the receptionist's also meant that we heard noises all night long and our room was never dark (light sleepers, bring ear plugs with you). There was no actual aircon unit in our room, but there was a ventilation "suck-in" fan that brought in aircon coolness from the lobby, it was no problem to us. We also had no window in our room as we viewed on Agoda, but that was not a big deal. Overall, it was a great place to stay for the price.

I would stay here again”

Great location, clean facilities

This was my first time in a hostel and I would (and will) stay here again. Everything was clean and well-managed. Not too noisy at night. The private room was just like the pictures. However, the rooms are NOT airconditioned like listing says. My room had a ventilation fan but not air conditioning. It wasn't uncomfortable, just be aware. Also, it is not marked visibly on the street. There are many hostels in the area so we got to the right area but our cab had to drive around for awhile before we found the right area. Again, not a big deal, just be aware.

Value for money, Train station easy to find”

Easy access to transportation, Close to attractions, Decent room

Really convenient for travelling. Train station and bus terminal are within 100 metres from hostel, from this train station Pasar Seni one can directly get to KL Sentral or KLCC - without any change of train lines along the way. From the bus terminal one can take the free shuttle bus to get to Bukit Bintang which is the shopping center district. Petaling Street Market is pretty much just round the corner, Central Market which sells souvenirs is just across the road. Room is simple and clean, light breakfast provided, free Wi-Fi, shared computers and TV at leisure corner.

At China Town, next to Central Market, easy to reach different means of transportation

Room is small but quite hygienic. Last year, I have stayed here for 3 nights and this time still came back because the hotel is located at the center of China Town and convenient to reach tourist attractions and various transportation. The price is reasonable including breakfast. Just remind you that breakfast should be well-prepared for the guests who have to leave early next morning as the bread was not there for some of us. In general, I like this place & will come back.

Normal breakfast toast and jam. Tea and coffee is horrible. But that's alright. You can find foods nearby easily around Chinatown. Cheap hostel weekday is very cheap. But Friday Saturday Sunday the price goes up and not much different if compared to the price of backpacker hostel in bukit bintang area.

The room is clean. Aircond: At first, i thought the AC got a problem. But not, the AC will not operate on a day, only at night. The AC is working properly and quiet cold. No remote to control the temperature. Security: The use the keycard. You need your card to open the entrance door. To enter your floor area, you again need your keycard. So, it is quiet safe. Toilet: They have many toilets, bathrooms. Clean. So, I had no problem at all with this. Breakfast: Well, I did not took any breakfast while staying here even though they served the breakfast because I always wake up late.

Good Internet connection. Air conditioning available from 8pm,9am. Day time only fan available, pretty hot in the room. 3 shower rooms, 3 toilets. Located right behind Chinatown. Reggae bar right behind the corner, 7,11 under the hostel, train station and bus station 5 mins from station. 20mins walk to CBD or take a free bus called purple line at the bus station in front of hostel. One thing to be improve is install the mosquito nets at the window or mosquito repellent, because I've been stung by mosquitoes every single night and it is heap bumps the next day. Everything is alright besides the mosquitoes is irritating
