BackHome's best feature has to be it's staff - all friendly, knowledgeable and very helpful. Their knowledge of KL's tourist attractions is really great and their tips helped me save money and time. They were also very accommodating in allowing me to use the showers after a long day in the KL humidity, even though I had checked out earlier.... More

After Reading the reviews i got exited, because the price for a room is rather high for a hostel. But what An amazing stay! Friendly staff, free towels, free coffee, tea and water, breakfast is basic but ok. Everything is so clean and the rooms are quite spacious. We stayed here first for two nights in a private room on... More

We had booked Backhome KL for 1 night. This was the best hostel that I've seen. The rooms and the property were clean, the staff were very friendly and more importantly - the entire atmosphere was like you were in a college. Really loved the stay and would get back to this place whenever I visit KL.

Great hostel. Probably the cleanest and most comfortable I've stayed in in 3 months. Close to China Town, LRT and bus station. The staff are welcoming and very helpful. A simple breakfast is included which is always a bonus and your name on the chalkboard door is a nice touch. The wifi works really well. If you're staying in KL,... More

Best place for a first time backpacker but it will really set your standards high when it comes to hostels. First of all, the welcome note on the chalkboard door of your room is so sweet and personalized. The interior design and layout of the place was really nice. The staff were amazing and helpful about everything. The room was... More

Spent a night in Backhome KL, a very nicely designed backpacker accommodation. We had a double bed room without attached bathroom. Room was spacious and clean. Common toilet was also clean :D there was a nice courtyard to chill on with tables and chair. Hostel lobby and movie room was cosy. Staff was also friendly and kind. Breakfast was simple... More

Knew this place 2 years ago, stayed for at least 5 times, introduced to at least 10 friends and everyone love it! It's within walking distance from Masjid Jamek Station, but if you are driving, you might need to park at the private parking at the end of the road. The bed is soft, comfortable, the room is clean, the... More

This is the first hostel I've ever stayed in and is the first stop on a tour of SE Asia, it's set an incredibly high standard for the other hostels to follow. It's in a brilliant location, near to so many interesting places and not far at all from a KTM station. The staff are polite, friendly, and very very... More

Backhome just raised the bar! It a flashpacker and a hostel as it's supposed to be! To the staff....Exellent service, competent and informative! You must try the food tour which is amazing! Larry and his teammates did an outstandig job guiding us through the hidden streets and bringing us into restaurants and food stalls you would have never found yourself!... More
