I loved this hostel! Super friendly and helpful staff and the atmosphere is amazing too. It was clean and the breakfast was good too. The hostel was only less than 5 min away from a metro stop which brought you to other places easily.

Contemporary, arty, free wi-fi, clean, comfortable bed in a central yet relatively quiet location. Complimentary healthy breakfast, unlimited supply of hot tea & coffee are certainly a bonus. The staffs I have dealt with like Anthea & Larry are top notch, great services! Something can be done a bit better is the shower room. Best to add an anti-slippery pad to avoid any nasty falls. Also, obvious marking like red stripes would help where ground level changes, e.g. tea room to reception room.

Good Hostel overall, staff are very very nice and helpful. The are willing to spend the whole night to discuss your travel plan and giving suggestion. The only short is the music from the other hostel was to loud, I guess its from the rooftop bar.

I like this hostel and I will definitely stay again when I visit Kuala Lumpur next time. But it will be good if staff could manage the volume in night. Some people play very loud music after 12:00 am. It is really bad experience.

A backpacker's dream hostel! Contemporary, quirky, simple yet comfortable! Central location yet quiet for a good night sleep. Shower under the huge shower head is an absolute joy. Everything is convenient - free wifi, locker, drinks ... Especially loved the contemporary design - big open space in the central court yard, bricks & walls in its original colour, orange decorating light, paintings in retro colours ... Staffs like Anthea & Larry hugely helpful!

In my opinion 60 Ringgit is to much for one night. There are cheaper hostels which have the same comfort.

The staff at Back Home are simply incredible. I managed to leave some clothing behind in the hostel after my stay. They held onto it for me until I came back through KL 4 weeks later. They also organised a tea tasting on the first day of Ramadan so we could experience truly Malay cuisine. This was when I was not even staying at the hostel but passing through and picking up my clothes. Fully impressed.

Super comfy, well decorated, well equipped (loved the plug and reading light bed side compartments). The location is super central and great for sightseeing, a 20min walk to the nightlife/restaurant area and a 5 min walk to a very useful metro station. I would recommend and stay there again.

Honestly this is the best hostel I've ever stayed at in my life, not just in SE Asia, but anywhere. Please just keep doing what you are doing! Your high consciousness levels attract the best travellers to meet too! Best wishes, Sienna
