This is easily one of the best hostels that I've ever stayed at. Pros: -Staff were super friendly and helpful from the minute I stepped foot into the hostel until I left. They appear well trained and ready to receive weary travels after a long day. -Beautiful interior design and layout (seems to be Dutch-inspired with the inner courtyard) make... More

They could not have found better name for this place, as when you are staying there it s like you are at your place, even if on the other side of the planet. You realize that as soon as you have entered the hostel, spoken to the friendly staff, walked through the cosy chill-out, internet, kitchen rooms and the big... More

Late post but worth the try. I've stayed in several backpacker hostels before but this place sticks out prominently in terms of service, privacy, ambience and value for money. The mixed wooden interiors are warm as well as the staff. The 6-person dorm room where we stayed in was just excellent. Cool temperature was just right and the room had... More

This hostel was very spacious and trendy, and felt a lot more like a sophisticated hotel. They provide breakfast, coffee and tea all day, as well as a water filter. The AC in the rooms is definitely sub par, and the internet can be spotty at times, but the rooms are verry spacious and it is in tremendous locations, often... More

The staff were very friendly and welcoming. The room was modern and clean with a basin in the room, I was worried as the room was right in the thoroughfare from reception to the bathrooms but it was quiet and pleasant. The shared bathrooms were clean and there was complimentary body wash dispensers. The hostel runs activities like bar crawls... More

Travelling on my own around South East Asia I have met very few other solo female travellers. Backhome, although a little more expensive, provided a safe and comfortable environment for me to start my travels. The breakfast was basic but tasty, toast and papaya. The location is excellent within 5 minutes walk to central market and the metro.

BackHome was a base for me and my partner while we travelled through Malaysia, and it really did feel like coming home every time. The rooms and communal space are fantastic, minimalistic in design but everything you need. Friendly and helpful staff and would definitely stay here again!

This super trendy hostel has very friendly staff, is well located (around 10 minutes walking from Jalan Alor, the place to be in China Town to eat outdoors) and has very good extra services like a chill area with Apple computers, a movie room, special guided tours and a terrace on the courtyard, also the terrace of the cafe next...
