The hostel is now bigger! They also should enlage their Shower and Toiletts rooms!

Sweet place to stay. I loved the queen-sized mattresses, and the atmosphere was just awesome. I'd definitely stay here again if I go back to KL.

This is easily one of the best hostels that I've ever stayed at. It was so amazing to be able to have a hot and strong shower after a week on the salty beaches and in the sweaty jungle where I couldn't have done that. There is a lovely cafe that serves Western breakfast next door. Beautiful layout and atmosphere, super friendly and helpful staff, very secure, good location, excellent wifi connection, and zero complaints. Well done! I would definitely stay here again.

This is my second time at BackHome, and it still exceeded my expectations. Staff were still accommodating and lovely as ever. Location was good-near train station and major tourist spots. Surely, whenever I am in KL, I'll always go BackHome.

Excellent value, close to the transit, very clean, good looking hostel. We arrived early and were allowed to sleep in a cinema room before our room was ready. Showers were nice and well maintained, breakfast was basic but good, with the option of adding more food from a partnered cafe next door. Beds were comfortable and room had a sink, mirror, large storage lockers and air conditioning. Hostel offered tours every day and was friendly. Nearby "reggae mansion" hostel has excellent rooftop club.

Location is good since very near the LRT. Not a party hostel but the common room is great.

Great facilities, breakfast could be longer (only until 10am). The hostel is very spacious and clean. Compared to other hostels in the Chinatown area it's rather expensive for similar facilities.

I enjoyed Back Home a lot. Very clean place, nice beds, good value for money and plenty of activities to choose from. Would highly recommend the morning food tour.

A great change from staying on squeaky and rocky bunks.WiFi worked great in the room. when I arrived early, they let me check in and leave my bag (room wasn't ready yet). When I checked out, they let me I have my bag around. Be aware that leaving your bag is at your own risk. It's just under the stairwell as they don't have a storage for bags.

Enjoyed this hostel thoroughly and could not find anything dissatisfactory. I have a thing for clean bathrooms and they definitely keep them well sanitized here! The only thing I wasn't too impressed with was the breakfast tour - seems overpriced for what you get. Otherwise, great job to all the staff and keep up the good work!

A very very nice and clean hostel with comfortable beds and spacious lockers inside the rooms. Communal showers and toilets were well kept. My only criticism is that it wasn't very sociable for a young solo traveller. It's not the kind of social atmosphere you would get from Khaosan Road for example.
