The staff here are excellent and there are so many reasons why you should stay here! First of all they have a common kitchen with hot and cold water tea coffee etc, a cool hang out area and a movie room. But most importantly the staff are so helpful! Only downside is the dorm l stayed in had no ensuite... More

We've been traveling around SE Asia for a bit and this is by far the most comfortable place we've stayed at. Everything, from the bathrooms to the 8 person dorms, was clean, modern, and convenient. The staff were all very friendly and knowledgable about the best places to visit and eat. When there was a mishap with our transportation from... More

I travelled with a big group of friends and BackHome was absolutely perfect. 5 minute walk from the train station and 10 minutes from chinatown and central market. Staff are very friendly and attentive, and there 24/7. We initially had plans to go to another hotel in KL but cancelled to stay longer at Back home. Loved it!

I would definitely recommend BackHome Hostel in Kuala Lumpur. The hostel is cool, modern and clean. Besides that the rooms are quiet at night :). Good value for money (there is breakfast included) and we got some fresh towels. It's located very close to the chinese area but also not far to see other must sees as the Petronas etc.... More

Went October 2015 for 4+1 nights as a mixed group, two couples and a solo traveler. I cant recommend this place enough! Once you sign in you'll be shown to your room. We took the Double Room (Ground Floor) for 4 nights and 1 night in the Double Room (Upper Floor). The rooms are very clean and neat. The rooms... More

We stayed here at two occasions during our stay in Malaysia. When we first arrived to Kuala Lumpur with bus from Singapore we arrived 5AM. It was just a short easy walk from the bus stop to the hostel. Even if we arrived really early the guy in the reception were really helpful and nice. We got to use the... More

We had a good start in the nice minimalistic room. Good value for money. The location near the Chinese area is nice, it is a little of from the Petronas towers, though close by the city centre. The coffee place next door has great breakfast, though not cheap.

I was in KL for 18 hours on a stop over. Arrived at 9pm & the staff were helpful in directing me to china town for dinner & what else to do. The rooms were clean & tidy as were the washing facilities. Central location with tours & TV room if you just want to chill out.

This is located in the heart of city right next to Jamek Masjid LRT. KL tower is 10 minutes walk and Petronas (KLCC) is just 2 train stops away. The room was very comforting and clean. The staff were very friendly and helped us plan our trip. Wifi was stable and free breakfast was good. Do not miss the movie-room... More

If you're traveling on your own, you'll easily meet other travelers. There's a good vibe at this hostel, and people always hang out at the lounge. You'll meet a lot of people and you'll discover Kuala Lumpur with them.
