Top choice hostel in Malang
Image by Booking.com

The owners of this superb backpacking place have fashioned an excellent hostel on the rooftop of Hotel Helios. Dorm beds are comfy (and interestingly include double and triple-sized beds), as are the bamboo gazebo-style rooms. It has a great shared showerblock and guest kitchen, too.

In the evenings the bar-cafe here, with its commanding city views, is the place in Malang to grab a cold beer and socalise with other travellers late into the night. It also offers a bunch of tours in the region (including Bromo), cooking classes and free city walks.
