My husband and I stayed at BackHome for two nights, after friends recommended the hostel to us. We ended up getting a private room, since the shared rooms with double beds seemed to be more expensive than the private ones. That may have been a communication error on BackHome's part, though, since they didn't seem to understand the question when... More

Stayed in the room for 4 persons and it was air-conditioned.There are plenty of showers in level 1. Coffee and tea are free during the stay and wifi can be accessed from anywhere in the hostel.

This is the first time I've been to KL, and also the very first experience with a hostel and dormitory. I came with a group of friends, and we booked a whole 6-bed dorm room. Luckily, this is a very great hotel with a close proximity to the centre, very modern and clean. The interior design is simple but very... More

The rooms are basic but clean, well equipped (AC, sink) and the shared bathrooms are above the hostel average: hot & clean showers, clean toilets and comfortable facilities. Stayed there for one night and decided to go back on our way back to Europe.

My dorm was facing the Main Street (Jalan Tun HS Lee) and it got pretty noisy at night with the traffic and sirens and such. Apart from that, the hostel itself was nice and quiet and I was able to sleep well. Dorms were clean but showers and toilets could have been cleaner, in the three days that I was... More

Stayed here for 5 days while awaiting a new passport. Nice, clean comfortable hostel. Higher price range then some hostels, but worth the extra money. Stayed in a mixed dorm, beds are big with own reading lights and powerpoints. Air con in rooms is set to standard Asian deep freeze so maybe bring a jumper. Most of the rest of... More

A clean, modern hostel in the heart of Little India, just a few mins walk from the nearest metro station. Really comfy beds, and a little power station/light/shelf located next to each bed was really useful. Showers were probably the best I had during my time in Malaysia, although there is limited changing space.. Breakfast was basic but free, so... More
