Budget Accommodation for Backpackers
There are many Malaysia Hostels with price that is affordable that you can book online.
Comprised of two regions – Peninsular Malaysia and Malaysian Borneo – Malaysia offers adventure, tropical climates, a vibrant capital city and unique culture to travelers on a budget.
Low cost accommodation can be found throughout the country and backpackers can take advantage of top quality not only in the cities but also throughout the sought-after beaches and rainforest destinations.
This budget hotel is operated using the same concept as the no-frills airline AirAsia. You will get a basic accommodation with clean bed and bathing facilities. Charges for the use of air conditioner and other toiletries will increase the price. If you want to save, bring your own toiletries. A good place to stay if you just want to explore the city and only come back to have a good sleep.
Matahari Lodge, Kuala Lumpur
Brand new and located in the hub of activities, this is another Malaysia hostels that is within walking distance of all the attractions, restaurants, shopping and public transport. The staff are excellent and can help plan any stay, whether it be 24 hours in the city or a month in other Malaysian destinations. A good night’s sleep is a must after a long journey, and the rooms here are private, clean, and comfortable.
Hutton Lodge, Penang
Walk the Heritage Trail of Penang, which contributes much to George Town’s listing as a UNESCO World Heritage Site and take in this unique architectural and cultural townscape without parallel anywhere in Southeast Asia. At the end of the day, head back to your hostel, a unique colonial-style guesthouse in the city center. The garden terrace is a great place to relax and all rooms are bright, spacious and clean.
Akinabalu Youth Hostel, Kota Kinabalu
Facing the South China Sea with Mount Kinabalu looming in the background, Kota Kinabalu is an ideal costal location. With no trip to Malaysia complete without traveling to Borneo, a stay at the Akinabalu Youth Hostel also offers easy access to the beaches and rainforests; a tour and travel desk is handily on site. And if you’re not a fan of the heat (although the hostel helpfully provides both fans and air-con), try snorkeling and a variety of affordable water sports at the nearby Tunku Abdul Rahman Park.
