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!
This hostel is only a 3 minute walk from the Pasar Seni LRT Station and a 5 minute walk from the shopping district of Bukit Bintang.
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.
There are 3 types of rooms available, which are The Dorms, Private Rooms and Ensuite with a price range between RM45- RM200++ per night.
When it comes to facilities, there’s free wifi, a chill out lounge, and a free iMac for use, among other things.
On top of that, Mingle organises occasional off-the-path trips or food tours around KL and Selangor exclusively for their hostel guests.
This is one hotspot you shouldn’t miss out on and if you’re planning a staycation in the heart of KL anytime soon, this could just be one of your options.
