As far as hostels go, BackHome is downright swanky and was easily the nicest hostel in terms of amenities that I stayed at during my SE Asia backpacking trip. It's very well located, just a couple minutes from the metro station and a 5-10 minute walk from Chinatown. The staff are very personable, knowledgeable, and helpful about all things KL-related....

I actually stayed here for two occasions, first was June 2013, and then March 2014 both stays were very nice, but watch out for the bunk beds, they don't have any rails on the top bunk bed to keep you from falling, so be careful. But overall I had a very nice stay, nice bread, milk and cereal breakfast. The... More

Stayed back in February 2014 for two nights. Quite a young traveller, and had never stayed in a hostel before, but this was a great first experience! The rooms were very clean, as was the shared bathrooms/toilets. I only have praise for the friendly and knowledgeable staff at the front desk. The location was excellent, not far from Masjid Jamek...

We stayed at back home for a couple of nights in a double room and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Loved the vibe of this place, very modern and funky with an industrial style trendy building. The bathrooms and showers were excellent and the whole place was clean. Loved having brekky in the courtyard and the LOKL cafe was a nice... More

A bit more expensive than some other hostels in kl but really worth it. The rooms are nice, and each bed has a lamp and plug. Enough and bathrooms for every one. Breakfast even if basic is included. Wifi is perfect, I was able to watch videos in streaming

You can't go wrong here. It's got everything you need and friendly staff. Was quite a bit of building work going on when I was there which disturbed things a bit, but probably means it looks great now!

This hostel is a paradise for backpackers traveling Kuala Lumpur. I booked it for a 3 nights stay for September, 2014 after reading reviews online. I must say it certainly lived upto my expectations, if not above. The entire hostel setup is awesome, although you may not find it spacious. The rooms as well corridor are clean, staff is nice...

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
