Outstanding hostel. Staff are friendly and helpful. Great location in KK city, convenient to travel around. However, reception is at level 1 and signboard is not big enough to attract attention. Other than that, all perfect.

I"m very happy to have chosen to stay in Vibrant Hostel. Very clean and the staff are very helpful and warm. Moreover, next to a big mall, Imago which makes it even more convenient to relax or to find foods and etc. Only regret not trying this hostel earlier, still not too late. I'm a regular visitor to KK.
