ultimate locations for room renting in kuala lumpur, most strategic, best locations to rent and find room to stay cheap affordable room

Are you struggling to get the best location to rent in Kuala Lumpur? Then you probably haven't found the best resource to guide you through the way.


The truth is: there are certain types of lifestyles that "live" in each location in KL.


If you're just starting to work and live on your own, you'll definitely look for someplace affordable and well-connected to public transportations. Masjid Jamek, Pudu and Imbi are some of the good options for you to choose from.


However, if you are well off and want a nice place to call home for a long time, you can try renting in Cheras, Bangsar, PWTC, Mont Kiara and Bukit Jalil.


If you want to have a full-blown KL lifestyle experience; KLCC, Bukit Bintang and Pavilion are the best locations for you.


But these locations are not only categorized according to the types of lifestyles. There are a ton of other things considered such as safety and surroundings, connectivity and affordability.




In this article, we'll look at the score of each location in KL and see how it is rated.


Let me break it down for you on how the scoring is done:


- Connectivity

All the traffic congestion, proximity to trains or public transport and distance away from the city are considered. If the location is close to the city centre and public transport, the connectivity is high.


- Safety

When it comes to safety, we observe the mix of population in each location - the overall culture of the area and who is staying there.


- Price

The rating for pricing is not just rental prices - it also includes the lifestyle cost in that particular area. So, the more dollar signs you see, the higher (and more pricey) the location is.


- Lifestyle

Lifestyle is rated based on the accessibility to malls, groceries, entertainment, cafe, gym and others.



To start, here's the list of 17 best locations for room renting in Kuala Lumpur you must know:


17. Masjid Jamek

16. Cheras Region

15. Bukit Jalil

14. Bangsar South & Seputeh

13. Bangsar

5. Mont Kiara

17. Masjid Jamek


Masjid Jamek refers to the mosque situated right next to Bangunan Sultan Abdul Samad and Dataran Merdeka (Merdeka Square) in Kuala Lumpur.


This building is attractively famous for its unique, distinctive architecture. For that, it's one of KL's most known landmark, as it still stands to the ground today, after 112 years.


Masjid Jamek in Kuala Lumpur Malaysia, oldest mosque in Malaysia, great architecture building, famous landmark in KL

The locality of Masjid Jamek has been one of the people's preference when it comes to sightseeing and experiencing the local culture.


There are many inexpensive local restaurants around Masjid Jamek such as Gerai Teh Mansion and Kafe Coliseum.


Petaling Street, Jalan Petaling Malaysia

lt is also a 10-minute drive from Menara Kuala Lumpur, KL Forest Eco Park and Masjid Negara.


If you want to go to markets, Masjid Jamek is only 3 minutes away from the Central Market and Petaling Street.


In terms of room renting, however, the options are quite limited.


There's The CapSquare Residence, a highly dense populated condominium in Jalan Dang Wangi. This 36-storey condominium is an expensive option as the monthly rental rate per unit is above RM 2500 on average.


It's an 8-minute drive from Masjid Jamek and it's also near to schools and universities like SMK Convent Bukit Nanas, SK Sultan Hisamuddin Alam Shah, Universiti Tun Abdul Razak (UniRazak) and Kolej Putrajaya, which will take you less than a 10-minute drive.


Another cheaper option for room renting in the vicinity of Masjid Jamek is Maytower Serviced Residence. This residence is a hotel and serviced apartment located in Jalan Munshi Abdullah. It's a good location with great accessibility to shopping malls like Mydin Masjid India, Sogo and AEON Quill City Mall - just 7 minutes drive.


The rental rates for a studio in Maytower are as low as RM 1000 per month. It's fairly cheap for a studio in KL but the units do seem a little old. It's a cheaper option but Maytower is generally a run-down building.

How's the lifestyle around Masjid Jamek? The area is known as a place of melting pots - you'll see a lot of foreign workers as well as street merchants and hawkers.


However, the area has a high density of offices, which is why getting a parking space may be tough. An alternative you can do is by checking out trains or any public transportations nearby.


Masjid Jamek is located near a few LRT stations (tram stops), including LRT Bandaraya and LRT Plaza Rakyat, which is approximately 10 minutes walking distance.


There are also many bus stops around Masjid Jamek that can get you to LRT stations. As you can see, it's quite easy to get around this area due to the easy access to public transports.

Cheras is one of the developing locations that are gaining locals' attention. It's a suburb situated between Kuala Lumpur and Selangor.


Just so you know, Cheras is a lively urban area and you can get pretty much of everything here.

As people prefer Cheras as a place to settle down, this location definitely caught the eyes of property developers.


Thanks to that, there are many choices of condo and apartments you can explore. Some of them are V Residence 2@Sunway Velocity, Amaya Maluri, J. Dupion Residence, and Arte Cheras.


All of these properties have facilities that every modern residence should provide like a gym, swimming pool, playground, jacuzzi, game room, yoga deck, BBQ area and multipurpose hall.

Thanks to the newly developed MRT (it's now 5 years old - and that's still considered new!), you don't have to put up with the traffic jam anymore.


MRT Sungai Buloh - Kajang in Cheras

Cheras could be a distance away from KL City. It's 20 minutes by car and that duration can be longer during the traffic. But, if you stay near any MRT stations, it shouldn't be a problem.


Also, there are a lot of bus stops around Cheras and the location is accessible via LRT Cheras too.

15. Bukit Jalil


Bukit Jalil is also a good location for those who want to settle down in a peaceful, calm metropolis.



It takes more than 25 minutes to drive to the KL city, and that doesn't include the traffic congestion.


So, an alternative option would be public transport.


LRT in Bukit Jalil

With only 1 connecting train line available (LRT Sri Petaling line), it takes quite a long time to get into the city centre.



People usually get to Bukit Jalil via the first LRT stop - LRT Bukit Jalil.



Depending on your final destination, you can get to the areas within Bukit Jalil via the 5 LRT stops.



There's a lot of dining options in Sri Petaling, and a better lifestyle to wind down there (if you don't mind the travelling time).


In Malaysia, Bukit Jalil is ultimately famous for its stadium and lots of sporting events. Majlis Sukan Negara (MSN) or the National Sports Complex, Axiata Arena and the National Stadium are all centred at Bukit Jalil.


All these are the places where prestigious athletics, sporting events and competitions, sports training and even concerts are held.


If you're in good shape and you do sports, trust me, you'll enjoy living in Bukit Jalil.


There are also tons of schools here, including:

  • Sekolah Sukan Bukit Jalil (sports school)

  • Baby Atelier (pre-school)

  • AJK (C) Lai Meng (national primary school)

  • YesKids Education (Montessori school)


As you can see, there's quite a life in the Bukit Jalil area. The only downside of this location is the distance to KL city.


Still, if you want to experience urban living that's enveloped in nature, Bukit Jalil is probably your best bet.

14. Bangsar South & Seputeh


Bangsar South, just to let you know, is the rebranded version of Kampung Kerinchi. Yup, many of us know this location by the name Kerinchi and not Bangsar South.


From low-cost flats and middle-cost apartments, the location now has many new offices, high-rise residences, condo, hotels and a vast array of retail outlets.

bangsar south city in kl

After that drastic overhaul, Bangsar South is currently one of Klang Valley's most sought-after locations.


In a similar case, Seputeh used to be an area where people don't really care about. Everything changes the moment Mid Valley Megamall was developed right across this location. Due to that, Seputeh is today, seen as one of the property hotspots in Kuala Lumpur.


Since these locations have become popular, the purchase and rental prices are expensive.


The lifestyle around these locations is great. Seputeh and Bangsar South are near to Bangsar, Mid Valley City, Brickfields, Bandar Sri Permaisuri, and Bukit Gasing.


It takes you only 10 minutes driving from Bangsar South to get to Bukit Gasing and 11 minutes drive from Seputeh.


bangsar, seputeh bukit gasing distance on map

Some of the nearby malls are, as mentioned, Mid Valley Megamall, The Sphere and KL Gateway Mall.


Since these two locations have been widely acknowledged, demands have skyrocketed. Thanks to that, the lifestyle here could be a bit expensive.


In terms of connectivity, these locations are quite centred around public transport, mainly LRTs.

So, if you're from the main city, you can just hop on the LRT or KTM at KL Sentral and get off at either Kerinchi or Universiti LRT station.


There are also other train stations around like Bangsar LRT station, Abdullah Hukum LRT station, Angkasapuri KTM station as well as Pantai Dalam KTM station.


So don't worry if you don't have a personal vehicle - you can easily find these locations via public transportations.

13. Bangsar


Bangsar is one of the locations that provide you with the luxurious, high-end vibes of contemporary Kuala Lumpur.


If you're looking for a place to chill, lay back, and enjoy a good nightlife scene, try checking out Bangsar.


There's a well-known cocktail bar here in Bangsar called Bar Atas.


baratas cocktail bar in bangsar

It's one of the night-time hangout spots people go to to unwind and let their hairs down.


The Malaysian-inspired menu options offered in this bar really portrays the variety of our local cuisines and cultures.


Some food you can get there are fettuccine chilli pan mee, spaghetti wantan noodles, fish and chips with assam sauce and stuffed eggs with ikan bilis sambal.


All these you can get for below RM20.




Apart from that, we know that Bangsar is the kind of place that emanates urban lifestyle. It's an upmarket area but that doesn't mean street food doesn't exist in Bangsar.



There are still plenty of affordable dining options such as:


Plus, Bangsar is also both a haven and a happy place for coffee lovers and cafe hoppers.


There's a bunch of cool, Instagram-worthy cafes for you. It's unquestionably a good area to get you out of your home, either to chill or take a break from your work-from-home workload.

aesthetic, instagram cafe in bangsar, lisette's cafe & bakery

And to make your life easier, here's a list of some of the best-rated cafes in Bangsar you can check out (you're welcome!):


  1. Lisette's Café & Bakery @ Bangsar - 974 Google reviews

  2. Transparent Coffee - 171 Google reviews

  3. RAGE Bangsar - 170 Google reviews

  4. Breakfast Thieves - 1,074 Google reviews

  5. Huck's Cafe - 150 Google reviews

  6. Work@holic Menara UOA Bangsar - 16 Google reviews

  7. VCR Bangsar - 937 Google reviews

  8. Meet Joe - 352 Google reviews

  9. PULP - 1,198 Google reviews

  10. Antipodean Cafe - 2,551 Google reviews


Since the lifestyle in Bangsar is quite expensive (which can extend to being very expensive), renting or purchasing a unit of condo or apartment won't be cheap too.


An alternative you can opt for is by looking for rooms in landed property. But still, rooms in Bangsar are not among the cheapest in KL, considering its conditions as property prices in this particular location is more to the high-end side.


So, unless you're someone with a chunk of money and savings, living in Bangsar is certainly a luxury that won't ease your financial burden.

12. Along Jalan Ampang


Jalan Ampang or Ampang Road is another hotspot in Kuala Lumpur.


There are lots of new condominiums in Jalan Ampang. Sometimes, if you ask around, the locals may say this particular area has a lot of ongoing construction.


So, due to the oversupply of properties here in Jalan Ampang, you can most likely get a cheap room here.


One flip side of this area is there is no public transportation nearby. No LRT, no KTM.


It's best for you to have your own personal vehicle when living in this area.


Jalan Ampang is also a very busy area with heavy traffic jam along the road. It takes you 14 to 16 minutes to drive to the main city (yup, it's close!)

embassy row, jalan ampang hilir

However, due to the endless traffic jam, you might take a long time to get to the city centre.



But still, the quality and conditions of those new condos are enough to compensate for the horrendous traffic.



Embassy Row is a good option, but the rental prices can be very high.



Also, Jalan Ampang is a great location if you love to get soaked (both in water and in sweat!)




Take your family out and have fun doing recreational activities in Kemensah Valley, Taman Tasik Ampang Hilir, Taman Rimba Ampang, Bukit Kembara and Bukit Saga.

bukit kembara, kemensah valley, taman tasik ampang hilir

Take your family and friends for a hike in Bukit Kembara, which is only 15 minutes from Jalan Ampang.


If you want to experience what it feels like to eat in the water, you can give Kemensah Valley a try. It's a great spot for camping, sleeping in your hammock, barbeque, family picnic and retreats.


The fees charged in Kemensah Valley are reasonable:


Entrance fee = RM 5 per person

Parking fee = RM 5

Storage space to put your belongings = RM 20


It's the best place spot for you to unwind and chill in Jalan Ampang, especially if you want to run away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

11. Old Klang Road


Old Klang Road or Jalan Klang Lama is one of the classic locations in Kuala Lumpur.


old klang road, jalan klang lama, oldest road in KLala lumpur

Old Klang Road is primarily situated in a strategic location between Kuala Lumpur, Petaling Jaya and Puchong.


It's the main reason why Jalan Klang Lama remains as the hotspot for commercial activities and property developments.


Hence, there's a lot of old and new condos in that area.



As prominent developers compete over getting their properties planted in this area, the pricing for units in this area is among the cheapest in KL.


Due to that, a lot of first-home buyers (FHBs) aim Old Klang Road when hunting for their first homes.


Apart from the condos and apartments, Mid Valley is literally 4 minutes away, but good luck finding a parking spot. Yup, Old Klang Road is also known for its non-existent, limited parking spaces.

In terms of public transport, KTM is the only closest accessibility around this place - Petaling KTM Station.


As this area is one of the most connected routes in KL, people who stay here usually have their own personal vehicles (cars and bikes). It's the fastest way to get to the main city, instead of relying on public transport.


Today, most of the residents living in Jalan Klang Road is from the Chinese community. So, if you love Chinese food, it's a great place to consider. There are lots of affordable and luxury dining options available for you to choose from.



So, if you contemplate living here, bear the traffic in mind. Traffic can be highly congested and that can sometimes be a bit too stressful.

10. Setapak & Gombak


Setapak and Gombak areas are largely surrounded around students.


So, if you're a student, you'd know these locations. Currently, these particular locations house around 30,000 students.


Some of the major educational institutions in Setapak and Gombak are Tunku Abdul Rahman University College (TARUC), Universiti Kuala Lumpur British Malaysian Institute (UniKL BMI) and International Islamic University Malaysia (IIUM).


There's also a lot of shophouses in Setapak area, where you can get almost everything - from printing, repairing, order custom-shirts and dresses, buy gadgets, get your eyes checked and a whole lot more!


Due to that, these locations are one of the most affordable areas in KL city with lots of very cheap dining options under RM10.


You find that hard to believe?


Here's a few places that will prove my point:


  1. Bai Krapraw Seafood

  2. Warung Jelira Molek

  3. Daily Burger Sri Gombak

  4. Gerai Roti Canai Mahmud

  5. Wira Seafood Ikan Bakar Sedap


With my own experience of frequent visits to these places (curated specially just for you), I promise you won't be disappointed.


Who knows Gombak has such a hidden food valley. Spread this info to your friends, family, followers and enemies.


No matter who you are, everyone deserves to taste these mouth-watering, appetizing dishes Gombak has in store for you.

How about connectivity?


The closest and best way to get to the city center is by LRT.


LRT Gombak, LRT Taman Melati, and LRT Wangsa Maju are the closest ones to Gombak while LRT Sentul is the closest one to Setapak.


It took you about 25 - 30 minutes to reach KLCC from LRT Gombak. It's not that close so if you don't mind the distance, you're good to go.


Batu Caves, Malaysia

Shopping malls? We have a ton here in Gombak and Setapak.


There's Setapak Central Mall, M3 Mall, Melawati Mall and KL East Mall.


You can also amuse yourself and stop by Batu Caves, Sungai Tua, Sungai Pisang, Zoo Negara, ATV Adventure Park KL, and Gombak Horse Riding.


On the whole, if you're on a super tight budget or you're a student, try to take a look at these two locations.


Everything is pretty much here, the life cost is cheaper than in the main city and there is definitely a lot of adventure to explore!

Wangsa Maju is a township surrounded by Setapak, Taman Melawati and Gombak. It consists of many sections which are Section 1, 2, 4, 5, 6 and 10.


Like Gombak and Setapak, Wangsa Maju is quite far; 8km away from the main city.


After TARUC and the Malaysian Institute of Art were developed nearby, demands for housing by students expanded tremendously.


Due to that, you'll see various types of housing here in Wangsa Maju. There are new condos, old condos, and lots of landed options, including low and medium-cost houses.


Since the housing rental demand is powered mainly by students, the rental costs are really cheap in Wangsa Maju. If you are hunting for a very affordable rentarental, this student-populated location is your perfect place.


Plus, this location houses one of the biggest population of families, apart from Ampang.


You can easily shop for things at Wangsa Walk Mall, AEON Big Wangsa Maju, Alpha Angle Shopping Centre, Melawati Mall and Setapak Central.

Wangsa Maju is always connected to major roads and highways. If you aren't staying near LRT, it's best to have your own car and motorcycle.


You're planning a family? Then, feel free to consider this area.


It's a good location as there are lots of greeneries here in Wangsa Maju (compared to other locations in KL).



We all know what green spaces do to us.



Overall, Wangsa Maju is a good place as its affordable and has tons of choices for food and lifestyle options.

Sentul and Titiwangsa are some of the closest suburbs to the KL main city. Yup, Kuala Lumpur is just 5-6 kilometres away from these two locations.


Sentul is situated right in between Segambut and Titiwangsa.

It's highly connected to the city considering its distance and time taken to reach there.

Plus, Sentul is most suitable for the Hindu community to perform their religious activities.

There are also a few new condominiums developed by YTL, a leading infrastructure developer in Sentul East.

The locals know this area as it's heavily associated with the iconic building, World Trade Centre Kuala Lumpur (WTCKL) which is formerly called Putra World Trade Centre (PWTC).


This building is Malaysia's most prominent convention and exhibition centre located at Chow Kit, a sub-district in KL.


This particular location is highly connected via KTM, LRT and monorail.
