An independent backpacker hostel, Red Palm has been noted by its guests for its homely feel. Housed in a historic building with an impressive colonial façade, we provide a place to relax and meet other travelers, rather than a venue for a party. Our accommodation is basic but clean and we offer single, double, twin and triple private rooms, as well as 6-bed dormitories. All facilities are shared.

We are located in the city-centre district of Bukit Bintang (within the 'Golden Triangle'), an area well-known for its shops and restaurants. In fact, you do not even have to leave the premises to find a tasty dining option; food and drinks can be ordered from the Indian restaurant next door and delivered straight through the fence!

We have a guest kitchen, a common room, an outdoor courtyard, cable television and an extensive library of DVDs. We also offer high-speed internet, printing, CD-burning, telephone facilities and a laundry service. Breakfast is included and complimentary tea and coffee are available all day.

*Please note: due to the age of the house, we do not accept guests under 13 or over 65 years of age.

Please take note that we are a backpacker's hostel. All the facilities are on a sharing basis. Our place might not be suitable for anyone who is not used to the backpacking experience.
Red Palm is not a party hostel, it is a place where you can feel at home and relax in the middle of the busy city
Prices are per person per night.
