This nation has megapolises, rain forests, prosperous culture, signature cuisine, and many sects living in harmony, Malaysia is indeed a beautiful country.

It is the nation’s capital and the largest metropolis of this country, this city has temples, museums, and numerous attractions, plus it is surrounded by dense rainforest. A hotel lodging in this city would cost too much, that is why in our view you should try homestay in Kuala Lumpur and spend on travel essentials instead.

Even though the tariff is priced just rock-bottom here, I would still have raised a dissatisfaction if I had seen a valid point. But this house is packed with amenities even with such a low budget. Here, we have one bedroom, a private bath, and a sleeping arrangement for four adults, at slightly more than 10 USD per night. The house is near shopping streets and Jelatek LRT station. The twin towers are visible from the property, and it’s a few minutes’ drives by road. This lodging has air conditioning, television, free WiFi access, a shared kitchen, and a lawn. Parking is also free.

This option is actually an extension to our previous rental as it is just another bedroom on the same property. The host has listed three bedrooms for rent on Airbnb, and this is the most spacious one, that is why tariff is also slightly higher. Select this space if your group and luggage demand more space. Here in this single bedroom layout, the bed and couch would make ample space for four adults. All the amenities are the same as previously described such as the air conditioning, television, a shared kitchen, free WiFi access, and a lawn. There is free parking as well.

There is one bedroom, a shared bath, and a mini kitchen. Speaking about the amenities here, WiFi is present, but television and air conditioning are unavailable.

Respect your host
Hotel and homestays are different experiences. You wouldn’t see a reception counter or staff to assist you in every odd time here, but hey, you’re neither paying them the same amount as hotels. Since you’re spending a very little amount to the host for your arrangements, you must respect the house rules and also the host family. Please be clear about the house rules before booking an option.
