Paper Plane Hostel




The Review

Paper Plane Hostel is a premium hostel located in Bukit Bintang. The hostel is ran by professional full time staff, and it has good Wi-Fi and security in general. Rooms are priced slightly more expensive compared to hostels in the area, but guests do get great value for their money considering the facilities provided by the hostel.

The Location

The hostel is converted from a private bungalow, so it is situated in the midst of other residential property. It is not located near any transport hubs, except an MRT station. As it's located off the main road, the hostel is extremely quiet even in its surroundings, but guests will find that there are very limited food options in the vicinity.

Rooms and Bathrooms

All rooms are air conditioned, and there are separate dorms for males, females, plus mixed or even private rooms. Private rooms are awkwardly located inside the toilet. Each bed comes with a reading light and two power points plus a small shelf to hold your devices. The beds and pillows are comfortable, and each bed gets not one, but two pillows! The bed frames are extremely sturdy and does not shake at all when guests are climbing. Frames are also equipped with curtains to maximise privacy for guests.

Each level has its own bathroom, but the common bathroom located on the first floor is the most well equipped. Bathrooms are clean and modern, with free towels, shampoo, shower gel, hair dryer, and even sandals.

Common Spaces

There is an indoor and outdoor lounge and a balcony. All common areas are spacious, comfortable, and equipped with power points. However, as the hostel tends to attract mature guests rather than young, budget-conscious backpackers, the other guests tend to keep to themselves and do not hang out at the common areas, so there is a lack of atmosphere. There is also a computer with stable internet connections that is free for guests to access. A guitar is also available indoors.

Guests also have free access to the fridge and cooking facilities in the kitchen. A washing machine is available for use at a fee.


While Paper Plane Hostel is not for the budget-conscious traveler, it still provides great value for money for guests who are willing to shell out a little bit extra for a more comfortable and premium stay in Kuala Lumpur, but at the expense of better location or atmosphere.
