The capital of Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur, is a sprawling metropolis with a busy central area that spreads out into commercial and residential zones.
Tourists will find most of this modern city's attractions, such as the Petronas Towers or China Town in the central areas which are all linked via modern rail systems. These central areas can be broken up into different accommodation areas with several offering great budget options. Take advantage of the rail system (LRT & Mono Rail) over infrequent buses or the crooked taxi ranks for a more relaxed way to get around Kuala Lumpur.
Planning ahead when staying in Kuala Lumpur, including choosing where you stay, can make your trip here much more enjoyable.
Known for its exclusive shopping areas, business zones and the city highlight that are the impressive Petronas towers the Golden Triangle is the elite district of Kuala Lumpur. With fabulous 5-star hotels taking up permanent residence nearby it's surprising to see that there are also quite a few cheap accommodation offerings. Budget conscious travellers looking to shop in Bukit Bintang will only be a single monorail ride away. While a single Light Rail Transit (LRT) stop could deliver you directly under the giant silver Petronas towers that light up the skyline at night. A visit that's well worth it for that all important iconic photo of the city plus some mall shopping at Suria KLCC inside.
This is the older more traditional shopping area of Kuala Lumpur with plenty to see and do for the traveller. Masjid Jamek is a beautiful building that can be visited by all wearing suitable attire (long sleeves and long trousers for all). Across the road is Chow Kit market which is filled with great food stands and everyday market stalls. During Ramadan evenings the streets here are positively brimming with fantastic hawker stalls with included seating thus making it a great night out for all.
Often known as the heart of Kuala Lumpur, the central area is also where you fill find the majority of budget accommodation. With a vast area comprising of what is now known as Chinatown there's an incredible amount of activity and things to do here. Everyday the street market in Jalan Petaling is filled with souvenir and food stalls. Go early to avoid the crowds and eat away from the street to avoid high tourist prices. Visit the colourful Sri Mahamariamman Temple or shop again for more tourist souvenirs at the Central Market. All of which is very close to both KL Sentral Railway Station and the main bus station linking you to the rest of Malaysia. If you are looking for a budget location in Kuala Lumpur that offers access to all the main attractions then Chinatown is the ideal place to stay.
x The average starting price for a place to stay in Kuala Lumpur is £22 per night.

travelmark A nice clean hostel, Good breakfast of cereals, toast . fuit . coffee and tea, as was said before , can be noisy at night because of the"lust" bar and music opposite until 2am, but only the Friday, Saturday was none, and cant blame the Hostel for that. 5 minutes walk to the Monorail and only 10-15 mins walk to lively Bukit bintang shopping area, Be nice to have more than 5 channels on cable TV

lansiumd I am very happy that I found PODs...thanks to Travellerspoint for having it on your website. The staff are friendly, courteous and very helpful. The living spaces are clean and has a nice aura to it. I also like the way PODs cools the living spaces (ie, no need to sweat it out or pay extra for a good nite sleep). Also, it is within easy access/very short walking distance to all kinds of public transport (the MRT, monorail, train, bus or taxi). The only drawback was that I could hear the street sounds (people shouting, cars honking and various construction sounds) until quite late at night. But this should not be a problem if you can tune this out or stay out till late. I would definitely come back and recommend PODs to my friends.

rocketmanb After searching through many of the options I found this was one of the few places free for the first night I would be in KL so booked online for the first night. Since I had read the reviews I knew to expect a windowless room and my expectations were not particularly high. Upon arrival the room was clean, small, and equipped with a small tv, table with mirror in addition to two smaller tables and one next to the bed. overall a decent layout for the very small size room. The room was a bit musty but ok as I imagine the amount of good fresh air is limited by the lack of windows. The air condition worked fine though I heard later that some of the standard rooms do not have individual air con units but use central air(?) not sure about this as our unit on the 5th floor did have a individual unit in the room. The tv service is adequate but no international channels like bbc, cnn, etc and though some local programming is in english you likely scroll though the channels to find the one movie in english or other random program. The bed was soft spring mattress and was reasonably nice, sheets clean and no issues there. Water in the toilet was hot if desired and water pressure good. All together the room fit my relatively low expectations and for a one to three night stay was fine, I would however consider looking around at the many other options available in the area (some of which are not on the web) if you have the time or inclination. For the same money I have had much better accommodation in Bangkok. Consider also the China Town 2 Inn just a few doors away as it seems newer and possibly just slightly nicer.
