South East Asia
A good hostel can make or break your experience of a place. During my travels I’ve always found the Towns or Cities where I have end up staying for longer than planned, it’s usually down to the fact I found a hostel that I loved. Here are some recommendations on the best hostels I’ve stayed at in South East Asia.
HOSTELS IN KUALA LUMPUR
I spent a lot of my time in Malaysia backwards and forwards to Kuala Lumpur and probably stayed in most hostels in the Bukit Bintang area. These are a few that I would recommend.
Great location right by Jalan Alor (food street) and Changkat where all the bars are. The hostel also has a bar. Entrance is through TG’s nasi kandar restaurant – great for malay food any time of day.
STEP IN TOO
Right in between Bukit Bintang & china town. One of the more Party hostels. Always people outside and often beer pong being played. Good place to meet people before going out.
DORMS KL 2
This was the hostel I finally settled on after moving around a lot of different ones. Really good social atmosphere, but not a party hostel. Lots of space in the lobby and netflix on the tv plus a good sized covered outside area. Best showers of any hostel I’ve stayed at. Become like my 2nd home.
LONG SHA CAMPSITE
Turn right at the jetty – You’ll see the sign
A campsite with tents already there if you don’t have your own. Probably the most chilled & relaxed place I’ve stayed. Volleyball matches and campfires on the beach. Proper island paradise.
Got stuck here for like a month. Had such a good time I’ve dedicated a whole post to it
I Also recommend staying at the other Flipside hostel in Ho Chi Minh City
Flipside HOSTEL HCM
DALAT FAMILY HOSTEL
Got a welcome drink and home cooked food on arrival. Family dinner every night (the best I had in Vietnam). A really sociable vibe and the Super friendly staff really do make everyone feel like family.
