Described as a co-living space, Komune Living Bangsar South (Komune) features various community facilities and conveniences for its guests, which range from visitors on day trips to months-long residents.  

After our 3D2N workcation there, here’s what we observed about how Komune provides digital nomads and remote workers with an efficient stay.

1. Self-service kiosks for a breezy check-in process

Although the Komune staff will be happy to help you, the self-service kiosk found in the lobby is an easily accessible check-in option.

While it may seem daunting at first, all you need to do at this kiosk is insert your IC and have your booking number ready.

After that, just ensure all the information is correct. The machine might prompt you to enter another IC if you’re travelling with others, but according to a staff member there, you should just forgo this step, or it might mess up the whole process.  

Once you’re all done, the machine will give you your room keys.  

When it comes time to leave, you can enjoy a swift check-out with the self-service kiosk too. Just insert your room cards and you’re good to go.

2. A self-serve Starbucks coffee kiosk for a boost of caffeine

While there is a Starbucks outlet nearby for a caffeine boost, it’s still a walk away. For those with not much time to spare throughout the day, Komune has another option: a self-serve Starbucks machine found in the open lounge area.

Here, you can buy hot or iced drinks, customisable to a certain extent. Beverage options include cappuccinos, macchiatos, americanos, and more.

Honestly speaking, they’re not as good as the store’s, but here’s a tip to improve your order: add an extra espresso shot.

3. A coworking space with discounted prices for guests

For digital nomads looking to get some work done, definitely take advantage of the coworking space found on the second floor.

Guests of the hotel get promotional rates, so be sure to ask a staff member there about current rates. The standard rates for day passes are RM35/day, but the rate for guests is RM10 at the moment. 

While the rooms in Komune do come with a working area, the Wi-Fi at the coworking space is stronger than in the rooms. Plus, there are also LAN cables available.  

The types of work spaces here include hot desks, fixed desks, and even private offices. 

Complimentary coffee and tea can be found next to the water cooler in the pantry, but you’ll need to bring down a mug from your room to enjoy them.

4. RM15 lunch plates at the in-house cafe

Convenient buffet-style lunches can be found at the cafe in the lobby. At RM15 a plate, it’s a pretty affordable option for the area, depending on how big your appetite is.

Unlike a typical buffet, though, you can’t get seconds here, so build your plate wisely.

On the bright side, there’s a free flow of drinks which includes coffee, tea, water, and typically another iced drink.

This might not be a meal option you’d go for every day, but on extra busy days, the convenience will be appreciated.

5. Laundry rooms with ironing boards

Long-stay guests can keep up their laundry cycle at Komune’s laundry room on the first floor. 

Washing and drying costs RM10 each, and tokens are available via a machine in the room itself. Laundry detergent is inclusive, so there’s no need to go out of your way to purchase those bulky products. 

You can also do some ironing here if you’ve got any business meetings you need crisp tops for.

While waiting for your load, there’s a spacious lounge outside where guests can kick back and relax with a drink or snack purchased from any of the vending machines in the area. 

If there’s no time to relax, you can get some work done here too, or work in the outdoor seating area on the opposite end of the space. 

6. Various options to keep your mind & body in shape

As they say, all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. At Komune, you can work hard and play just as hard, if you wished to.

Options to stay active include the Game Base, pool, and gym. The Game Base has a ping pong table, foosball table, and pool table. There are also arcade machines available.

Those who wish to exercise their minds instead can play some board games or browse the hotel’s selection of books in the reading corner.

Meanwhile, those who really want to sweat it out can check out the pool and the gym found on Komune’s rooftop.

All in all, you’ll be largely left to your own devices at Komune, and you can read about our workcation experience at Komune in more detail here
