Dengba Hostel Janlan Alor




The Review

Dengba Hostel Janlan Alor is located right in the middle of the Jalan Alor. The hostel is mainly run by Chinese backpackers who are staying for the long term. Service quality is top notch, the Wi-Fi is great, and free breakfast is provided.

The Location

The famous Jalan Alor food lane is located right at the doorstep of the hostel, so guests will be in for a treat! Guests do not have to worry about the noise from the stalls, as the hostel has robust soundproofed walls. Though the hostel is located far away from the transport hubs, the staff are extremely knowledgeable about the transport options, and will help guests find transport solutions.

It is important to note that some online maps' location for this hostel is inaccurate. Guests will have to ask around the locals, or other neighboring hotels for directions in order to find the right place. The "Dengba" brand is also not prominently displayed along the road, so it is easy to miss the turn when passing by.

Rooms and Bathrooms

All rooms are air conditioned, and the dorms have more than ten beds in a single room. However, there are curtains that divide different sections of the room for privacy. Each bed gets its own cupboard with locks, reading light, and power point. The beds and pillows are clean and comfortable, with warm blankets.

Common bathrooms are huge and spacious, and guests are given free towels and hair dryer. However, no showering gel or shampoo are provided.

There is a common laundry area for guests to dry their clothes, located outside the bathroom. However, there is little ventilation in this area and the hostel has not installed any dryers or fans, so it is difficult for clothes to dry, especially in the hot and humid climate of Kuala Lumpur.

Common Spaces

There is a comfortable sofa area by the reception where many guests sit around to hang out. There is even a guitar for the more musically inclined. However, it is worth noting that the hostel does keep some pets in the common area, so guests with sensitive skin or noses should take extra care.


Dengba offers great value for money at a great location; with good facilities and service, any guests visiting Jalan Alor should definitely consider a stay at this hostel.
