About Kuala Lumpur
Kuala Lumpur, capital city of Malaysia, is a bright and vibrant city. There is much to see and do here both in the city and a little way out. The KLCC is the largest and most popular shopping mall and you can go there to scoop up a bargain. Among the brightly lit skyline is the Petronas twin towers, which are a must see for a spectacular view over the city. One of the more local-type activities is to find where the local "mamaks" (food outlets) are and go visit them. Given that it is so hot during the day, most of the local socialize and eat at these food outlets that sprawl out into the streets in the early hours of the morning.
Kuala Lumpur is a city full of nightclubs and entertainment, so if partying is your deal, there is plenty to see and do at night. It also has quite a happening local music scene with many local original artists playing their music throughout venues in the city.
On a more religious and cultural note, there are many beautiful Islamic mosques throughout the city, some of which are open for visitors and others that are closed off. It is good to be mindful that to enter these mosques that women need to be covered from head to toe. The National Mosque will provide these gowns to women entering, but it is a good idea when going to see them to take a head scarf and wear clothing that covers the knees and top parts of the arms.
Hostels in Kuala Lumpur are scattered throughout the city. Some are concentrated in particular areas such as along Jalan Hun H. S. Lee and Jalan Petaling. The majority of them are downtown and close to any amenities that you may need.

Rainforest Bed & Breakfast
"Rainforest Bed & Breakfast is in a beautiful building, carefully decorated. And while the hostel itself isn't too exciting, the building makes it unique. A breakfast of toast and spreads, cereals with milk, and fresh fruit is provided in the morning and the staff are knowledgeable about the area, tourist attractions, and transportation. A few books about Malaysia and its various regions can be perused in one of the common areas and there are...
Wheelers Guest House
"The Wheeler's Lodge lies just across the road from the Traveller's Lodge and as you guessed is owned by the same person. Look out for the sign and the entrance, which is actually via a lift to the second floor. Some friendly shopkeepers below will point the way if you can't find it. Don't be fobbed off by the bottom entrance which is a bit grim. The Lodge is clean, friendly and nice. It doesn't quite have the facilities of the Traveller's...
Backpackers Travellers Lodge
"There's something nice about being handed the front door key and allowed to come and go when you please. It feels a bit like you own house.

The reception area is bare but friendly and guests have access to 24 hour DVD movies on the television and internet if you bore of the activity outside in the Chinatown markets (unlikely). The...
"Travellers Palm Homestay is actually a guesthouse, not a hostel. The place is clean but has a lot of humidity in the walls. The staff are very helpful. The location of the guesthouse does not look that nice. The Location The guesthouse is located in Golden Triangle -- the area is packed with hotels, hostels and guesthouses. It is very close to Puduraya bus station, and if you arrive to KLCC, you can cross the street to catch the...

New Pudu Backpackers Hostel
"Located directly opposite the main bus-station in Kuala Lumpur, the Pudu Hostel is extremely well located. It is right in the heart of the city and close to many of the main attractions.

The air-conditioned Pudu hostel occupies the upper floors of a...
Backpacker's Travellers Inn
"Backpacker's Travellers Inn represents excellent-value-for-money, budget-grade hostel accommodation. The Location Since the hostel is sandwiched on the second floor between a bustling restaurant and a small rooftop bar (both under separate management), you would be forgiven for not noticing it from the street. The hostel is in fact in one of the best locations in Kuala Lumpur -- the hostel boasts a prime location in Chinatown with a...
"The moment you enter Red Palm hostel, you are made to feel welcome and at home in this old and airy colonial building.

Hotel Chinatown 2
"Just as the site info says, right in the heart of Chinatown. Found the staff and especially the manager to be very helpful and friendly. The rooms are very clean and spacious and well thought out..plenty of places to put stuff you often can't find a hook or shelf for. Only gripe is that the aircon isn't adjustable and I found it too cold and dry, having started to acclimatise to the tropics, and caught a bad cold. (Of course that could have...
"The Cosmopolitan Hostel opened its doors in March 2007 so is still shining and sparkling with brand new mattresses and rugs. From the outside, you wouldn't think this, as the building looks a bit tired and rundown, but looks can be deceiving. Currently there is no sign or building number outside so it's very easy to miss, but just look for the big building next to the 7-11. Inside you'll step straight into the reception area with the large...

"Central Lodge hostel is by far not the best in the world! It is very small, not a great location, old, and not convenient at all. It is on one full floor of a building (with a karaoke on the level below). Everything is a big corridor, the entrance opens on the reception, then all the rooms are on each side of the corridor, and the lounge and kitchen are part of it, so very small and not separated.

PODs the Backpackers Home
"Good location; but not the comfiest stay. - I enjoyed the location PODs was to the KL Sentral station, very handy for a brief stay in KL. I do not like the way the 'rooms' at PODs aren't really rooms, as the walls do not entirely enclose from floor to ceiling. This means you can still hear everything that is going on outside and if you were as unfortunate enough as me to be near the bathroom; expect to be woken up by the sound of showers and...

Kuala Lumpur Travel Tips & Suggestions
Kuala Lumpur is my favourite city in Southeast Asia so far. I love that there are so many trees around, and I really enjoyed the freedom of the subway and buses. It beats haggling with taxis and tuk tuks any day!
