In a high-ceilinged 1930s shophouse, cheerful Sojourn has four-bed dorms with pod-style bunks – that means more privacy and less rocking from the top bunk. There's bike rental (per half-/full day RM6/10), lockers and primo local knowledge on tap. When we passed through, a new location (still in central Taiping) was on the horizon.
Private single, twin or double rooms are available too, but note that some are fan-cooled rather than air-conditioned.
