We loved the location of BackHome KL. It was easily accessible to buses and trains and plenty of restaurants located around everywhere. The staff was extremely friendly and helped us out with whoever we needed. The beds were comfy and the A/C worked great.

Everything here is perfect, the location, the staff, the rooms, the showers (amazing !!!!). I will come back ! I loved the friendly atmosphere and how helpful the staff was. It's a little more expensive than other hostels in KL but you know what you are paying for. Really close to the heart of Chinatown, close to Little India and... More

What do you expect from a hostel in KL? It must be safe, the location should be near a sation, the staff should speak well English, low prices, clean bedrooms and comforatble beds. Locker's free of charge... and and and. The only thing which could be improved is the aweful breakfast. :)

We stayed in a 4 bed female dorm. Beds were very comfortable compared to our guesthouses in Thailand. Nice high ceiling in room and spacious, did not feel claustrophobic. Bathroom was shared and outside room. Bathrooms upstairs are shared with both genders. Downstairs are female and male specific bathrooms. Large lockers in each room enough for each person staying in... More

Backhome KL is a beautiful hostel near the city centre. From the International Airport you can easily reach the hostel. You just have to take the KLIA express until KL Sentral station and from there you take a taxi (with taxi counter 10 MR). The rooms are nice, with AC, lockers and good free WiFi. The bathroom facilities are clean... More

I got a private room with my boyfriend, the bed was comfy and the room was clean. I loved the fact we were in walking distance to Petaling St and the Central Markets! Bonus was that we were two minutes work to the train station, staff were accommodating and the breakfast was adequate. If you are looking for a place... More

The best thing about this hostel is its close proximity to the bus station which was a selling point for us. The double room was a great deal, staff nice, bathroom and toilets clean. The only disadvantage was the face the double room was in the courtyart and the walls were not very soundproof so we could hear everything going... More

Backhome is a sort of trendy hostel I guess, outisde inside with a courtyard and imac's for customers to use - we felt right 'at home' as the name suggests. We stayed in the double bed dorm, which has enough privacy to make it feel private and less like a dorm without the price tag - plenty of room in... More
