Such a great hostel in a pod location and very comfortable. Definitely would recommend!
One of the best hostel I've been to in South East Asia. Staffs are really kind and always willing to help guests. Location is great, it takes less than 5 minutes to the LRT station and Petalling Street (China Town). If I have a chance to visit KL, I will definitely book this hostel again.
Good location, nice stuff and comphy rooms. Definitely recommended.

This was a very nice, well thought out hostel. There were plenty of common areas for meeting fellow travellers - essential for those travelling solo. It was clean, comfortable and there were little touches (like writing your name on the dormitory door) that were really welcoming.
Really good hostel with a great atmosphere. I was only there one night and met loads of people which was great. Near lots of good food places and really easy to get to from KLIA2. Staff were informative and friendly. Free breakfast was good too. Would 100% stay again.
Lovely hostel near Chinatown. Staff are incredibly nice. The description on the site to hostel is a bit off but found it eventually. My room was on the ground floor and I used the downstairs shower and toilet facilities which lack tiny bit of space to hang your clothes without it getting wet. We went to rooftop bar of neighbouring hostel which was recommended by a staff member. It was really nice. Overall experience was great!
This was my third stay at Backhome. I really like staying here and I will be back. One thing that disappointed me on my stay this time was that I asked to have a taxi for 4:45 in the morning and I was told it would be ordered but it never was. This caused me to miss my train to the airport and I had to rush to get to my flight on time.

Just a great hostel in every sense! It's the first one I've seen with a couple's dorm. The furnishings are great and it frankly looks like it's straight out of a design magazine.
Top, top facilities - great patio, comfortable beds, clean and great atmosphere. Was the absolute best hostel I stayed at during my travels in Malaysia and Singapore. Highly recommended
Loved this place!! Great design and really well thought out. I definitely recommend this for anyone visiting KL. Really easy to meet new people, comfortable rooms, felt very safe and a perfect central location. The internal courtyard was a nice little sanctuary. Thanks for the enjoyable stay!
very beautiful and clean Hostel. The staff is super friendly and very helpful. I checked out very early, they even prepared a free breakfast for me at 6am! Great atmosphere with a lot of nice traveller. The TV room is a Great Place to relax after a long day. Lot of books available to swap, especially travel books. Great showers! Would definitely stay there again :)
Been here over and over and over. The best place to really feel at home :)
AC in room was too strong and not changeable. TV remotes in TV room complicated to point of not usable.
Amazing hostel. Big and comfortable beds; plugs and lights in your little bed nook; the best lockers I've ever used; sinks in the room and bathrooms on each floor; hot water and decent water pressure; super helpful and nice staff; great outdoor and indoor common areas; a movie room; and even a water purifier so you can fill your own water bottles with hot or cold water. A great hostel. Breakfast could be better though.
The food tour was a real insight into Malaysian food culture. Met a lot of great people, the rooms were nice, I had a really good time!
Before I got here, I told someone where I saw staying and her reply was, "Best hostel in Malaysia." I thought she was exaggerating--she wasn't. Great staff, great location, great vibe. Really good set up to meet other travelers. I will definitely stay here again. My only complaint is that the AC in my room was quite chilly at night. I was given an extra blanket upon request but bumping up the temp 2 degrees would make a huge difference.
Very friendly and helpful staffs, the establishment is clean and quiet! I enjoy my stay there, in fact i extend my visit for a few more days there!
