8.9 out of 10

Occupying a 1920s building once owned by a Chinese tycoon, this clued-up hostel has a naturalistic feel with venerable stone walls and lounge zones open to the air. Dorms and rooms feel ample, each bed with its own air-con and electrical sockets. Occasional antiques and old brass lamps hark back to the building's glory days as a social hall.

Unusually, it's also possible for two travellers to stay in a double bed within a four-bed mixed dorm (from RM78).

Guests also get discounts at the fun rooftop cocktail bar Deceased and can join regular social events including (for an extra charge) food tours and cultural excursions.
