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

Great showers and location. Easy to get to from airport. Very clean, quite quiet but still goods to meet other backpackers.. Reception isn't very helpful in regards to where to go/what to do. Breakfast is just toast or cornflakes. I'd stay here again :)

If on a budget, but you a comfortable yet posh accommodation in then Backhome Hostel is the place for you. I first heard about this hotel when it was featured in the National Geographic Channel for its eco friendly material and trendy industrial interiors. The rooms are well appointed, sheets are clean, the bed is firm and even in a... More

Well located, nice and comfortable room (we went as a group of 6 so we got a 6 beds dorm). Although the breakfast was not fresh but I love the coffee. I could walk to the free bus in no time to get to KLCC or few steps to go to Majid Jasmek and old central market or Merdeka square.... More

The young people who run this place are really nice and helpful and out to please. They were flexible with the breakfast times when I suffered from jetlag. But they were a little parsimonious about the air conditioning of the room although it was always nice and icy cold at the reception. Nor was there any a/c in the pantry... More
