Very decent hostel with many available services such as tours and laundry. Very friendly front office. Food available at the hostel also very cheap. The hostel contains a quaint social area with free to use MacBooks and Games.

I stayed at BackHome just for one night, it's really a wonderful place. It's clean, has good access to transport and basic breakfast is included. There're good sized areas to hang out and socialise. There're just 2 small things keeping me from giving it 5 stars, there were no hand towels for the toilet shower area, and there wasn't free...

Was gonna give this hostel a decent review. Until.. what I thought were just an insane amount of mosquito bites ended up being bed bug bites!!! I have hundreds of bites all over me now. I stayed here for three nights. I noticed blood spots on my sheets but did not pay much attention.. I figured the sheets were dirty....

Wifi is good, located near subway station, but in a quiet place, so you can take a good rest there. Shower is powerful and they have place for hanging clothes for dry. If you wanna find a party hostel, this not a good choice for you.

Yup, we're all about a good night's rest, wingwink_c. But there's a pretty good rooftop bar nearby if you're looking for a party.

Super friendly hostel, in a good location. Clean, comfortable and cool layout. We got a double room, a lot of space and storage, and sink in the room. Only stayed a couple of nights, but would stay again if we return to Kuala Lumpur.

Backhome is the best place to stay in KL. Perfect Location to check out Chinatown, Little India and the CBD. Super friendly and helpful staff! Good breakfast included (cereals, fruits, TOAST) and free coffee and tee all day. The rooms are big and clean, and each bed has it's own little shelf. Here you can find everything a traveller needs...

We stayed here in March in a 6-bed mixed dorm upstairs. The dorm room had big closets and each bed had its own little cabinet with reading lights, shelves, a space to hang clothes/towels. You also get a locker with a space for a backpack, and three shelves. We had a sink and counter area in our dorm, great for...
