  • Great place and it's near the major public transportations. It took me a while to find the hostel. I'll stay again if I'll be back in KL..

  • Everything was excellent! The location is super easy to get to from the airport, and then once again from anywhere you travel to within the city. The space is beautiful; lots of space to hang out and chill or meet up with other travelers if that is your thing. The breakfast is simple but sufficient. Overall, I would recommend this hostel again and again for anyone staying in KL.

  • The hostel was very nice and clean the only bummer is that we got the worst room in the place.

  • Stayed four nights at Backhome. I've stayed in many hostels around the world and this has been one of the best. Lovely setting, good mix of outdoor meets indoor interior. Delux 4- bed dorm is great! Very spacious and queen size mattresses! Super comfortable. For extra convenience there is a lovely cafe attached to hostel. Very reasonably priced and in the heart of China Town which is fun. 3min walk to train station and 5min walk to Go KL free bus. Staff we're friendly and helpful.

  • The only negative thing I can say was the amount of noise from the construction going on in the main area, Also the fact that there were some older people staying here... 45+ which isn't good in a hostel atmosphere. Great location, friendly staff, all around great otherwise!

  • We were a group of 12 pax from India visiting Malaysia. We stayed at Back Home during our visit to KL. I must say we throughly enjoyed the place. I remember staying up til 5.00 am in the lobby with my friend having a chat with couple of beers, felt like home. The place is clean and also comfy.Loved their bunk beds as well.
