It is common to see some parts of Kuala Lumpur still retaining an olden day feel reminiscent of the yesteryears. This is particularly true in places like Petaling Street and Chinatown. Located along Jalan Sultan is the rustic hostel known as Mingle KL.

Regardless of whether you are a traveler from abroad or a Malaysian seeking a spot for a staycation, this place would interest you nonetheless. It is mentioned on their Facebook page how the inspiration for this hostel stemmed from a desire for a place where flash-packers, entrepreneurs and business travelers can mingle. In fact, it was actually transformed from a colonial-era shop-house!

Mingle challenges the concept of typical hotels by making it a suitable office space to frequent business travelers. This modern concept also means that hostel guests can opt for long, medium or short-term stays.
