I fell in love with this place as soon as I arrived. The room was very spacious, clean and modern. Perfect location as it takes only 5 mins walk to the major LRT station. LOVED the peaceful vibe here, it's truly felt like home!

Back Home is a great place to stay in KL. The place is very clean and tidy. The staff is helpful and knowledgeable. They helped us book an outdoors excursion, river tubing, with Primal Wilderness Experience, which I couldn't recommend highly enough. Bathrooms and showers were always clean. Breakfast was served between 7 and 10, simple cereal and toast with... More

BackHome is awesome. We stayed here for 5 nights in total either side of a 3 day trip to Cameron Highlands. There is nowhere else I'd want to stay in KL after visiting BackHome - it's in the middle of everything, walking distance to ChinaTown and very close to Masjid Jamek LRT line which connects you to the whole city....

KL it ain't my favourite place but man, this place is great! I got the feeling with this hostel that they really thought which things people need when designed the place. Although it was a bit out of my budget, I chose this place because at the moment I was freelancing and I needed a comfortable place to stay and... More

Nice, modern place located in little india and near a mrt station. The staff is very friendly. Good place to meet other travellers. There are dorm rooms with doublebed bunk beds. The bathroom facilities are modern. There is a comfortable movie room where you even can sleep if you arrive early in the morning and can't check into your room... More

I love this hostel, they are so amazing. Even you know this is a hostel, but you'll feel like in a big hotel. Their hospitality is the best. Their room is big, the place is so near to everywhere like dataran merdeka, masjid jamek, pudu raya, petaling, and also bukit bintang. Just need to take a walk to place that... More

This is pretty much the best designed and built hostel in malaysia. Though it lacks the true backpackers atmosphere, the facilities, bedding and bathrooms are good. Definitely recommended for a more relaxed, quiet stay.

We were really pleased with our stay at Back Home. Firstly, it's really centrally located, just a minute walk away from the underground train station. The hostel itself is really modern, clean and has a great atmosphere. They have very large, comfortable beds. I found the staff here to be very helpful and the facilities are far better than most...
