Backhome just raised the bar! It a flashpacker and a hostel as it's supposed to be! To the staff....Exellent service, competent and informative! You must try the food tour which is amazing! Larry and his teammates did an outstandig job guiding us through the hidden streets and bringing us into restaurants and food stalls you would have never found yourself!... More

This was recommended by my friend. And I was not disappointed. The place is good place to relax. The breakfast is in buffet style. You can eat a variety and as much every morning. The staff are helpful and accommodating. Everything here is nice.

The Hostel itself is very clean and comfortable! It has a nice courtyard with view on the KL-Tower! Everything is fancy! The... More

Really easy reservation, check-in, and check-out. They have towels (for 5rm) and bedsheets/pillows (free) available. Great to come back here everyday and feel safe and comfortable. 2 female friends and I got 3 beds in the mixed dorm suite and it was nice. Bunked beds were much bigger than I expected and had individual reading lights and outlets. Cabinets in... More
