Powerful hot showers; ample bathrooms and lavatory facilities on two floors.
Free high speed broadband, and WIFI. Or you may use our computers at RM1.00 for every 15minutes.
6 and 8 bed dorms:
As 6 and 8 bed dorms cost the same, we wish to remind you that if you have booked any of these dorms - we reserve the right to change your booking from a 6 to 8 bed dorm, or vice versa. This is to ensure that we have the flexibility to make sure all our guests' requests are fulfilled.
BackHome cannot guarantee that your group will stay in the same dorm.
We will always try our best to keep groups together. However, this is not always possible.
