Equator Hostel

Equator HostelThe Equator Hostel is a typical backpackers guesthouse in Kuala Lumpur. It is one of the many hostels at Jalan Pudu, located near Chinatown, bus station and mono rail. Although this is a very busy street area, the hostel should be recommended for the friendly staff and clean rooms.

Coffee and tea are free and there is internet available.

Reggaer GuesthouseAvailable are air-conditioned rooms (though a bit small), free internet / Wi-Fi, free breakfast and hot power showers.

Staff is friendly and helpful. One traveler says it this way:

"This guesthouse comes very close to being the best I've ever stayed in. The staff were simply fantastic, helpful, friendly, talkative.. The place was very clean, and even has a cleaner who, despite my protests to do it myself, kept cleaning up after me at breakfast.

There was a good lounge area, perfect for meeting people, non stop TV with a good selection of films to watch on a rainy day, and free internet. The location was good too, with the bus station two minutes walk away."

Backpackers Travelers Inn

Backpackers Travellers Inn KLThe last Kuala Lumpur guesthouse we recommend is the Backpackers Travelers Inn. It's another good central located guesthouse in Chinatown, city center. The outside of the building doesn't look much but inside it's clean with a friendly and helpful staff.

The Inn offers several booking services.

One traveler says: "If you are just looking for a place to crash at night because you are going to be running around during the day than this place is great. There is a bar on the top floor which is good and they have breakfast on the deck bar every morning wish was AMAZING and cheap BTW. I would recommend this place and I am coming back. Its not fancy and its not the prettiest place but this place is cheap and great."
