Malaysia Hostels

Budget Accommodation for Backpackers

There are many Malaysia Hostels with price that is affordable that you can book online from HostelBookers. 

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 Malaysia hostels not only in the cities but also throughout the sought-after beaches and rainforest destinations. 

Equator Hostel, Kuala Lumpur

Strategically located next to the Berjaya Times Square, Chinatown and Jalan Bukit Bintang, this hostel in Kuala Lumpur makes a great base and starting point for those arriving in Malaysia and the capital city for the first time. Spacious and laid back, the atmosphere offers a great place to meet other travelers, recover from a long flight, surf the net and plan an itinerary or get out and explore the buzzing energy of this modern city. 

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 Hostels in Penang , 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


Heading On
One of the great features of backpacking around Malaysia is the ever-present possibility of extending your trip into other countries within Southeast Asia!
