I am very glad I found this place online coz I heard they opened only last quarter last year. I find it really posh. Good job for transforming an old two-storey link house (row house) into a modern interiored, artsy, spotless hostel it is now. White walls a perfect choice so as give a more spacious and clean feel. The drawings on walls indeed very artistic.

The wooden floor at the 2nd floor where I stayed I love walking barefoot on. Room locks including that of of the hostel maim entrance door are high tech, airconditioning very efficient and toilets always kept clean. I stayed for three night with first two nights in a private bunk room with only 1 bunk bed and high ceiling and the last night in a twin room with queen size bed. 


I loved my first room and the 2nd one indeed a celebration. The brick wall accent is really pleasant to the eyes. The rooms were always smelling nice and fresh. Wifi superb on both ground, 2nd and 3rd floors. The rooftop open space I love too. I remember staying there often just relaxing and enjoying the skyline of KL. 

Paper Plane Hostel is right behind Swiss Garden Hotel and Swiss Garden Residences so it is easy to find, not too far off the main street but still comfortable enough away from the busy and noisy main street. I was welcomed by one of the business owners (Kenny) on the eve of Chinese New Year and I was surprised at how warm Kenny is. He is friendly and natural. I felt home instantly after stepping inside the hostel. I will keep coming back here whenever in KL.


I was impressed at how secure the neighborhood is. While the hostel's front section is all-glass, the main door can only be accessed using the electronic room key card. The owner had to leave that night to join his family to celebrate Chinese New Year and nobody was left at the lobby. I was advised to give him a call using the hostel's phone by the front desk should there be any concern. I felt secure despite the absence of staff in the hostel and the cctv was there to monitor everything. I left the hostel leaving my key card at the front desk and waved goodbye to the cctv camera grateful of the warm welcome I received.

The hostel is very near Bukit Bintang which is a happening place in KL. I remember walking back to the hostel after meeting friends in Jalan Alor and having massage there. All it took was a few minutes of walk and I was back in my room.

I can easily recommend this hostel to my friends and readers if they are looking for an affordable but quality accommodation in Kuala Lumpur.

  2. You might not find too many drinks when you order food at a Chinese hawker stall in the country. Most of the wayside stalls serving Chinese food in the country focus more on the food. phoenix pizza restaurant
