Great showers, good location, good value for money.


Everything is good, breakfast is pretty simple.


We hade a great time here. Rooms were very nice and comfy, kitchen and bathrooms were great and new as well. There is a nice café right next to it and it has a TV room and computers. So there is not really anything we could complain about...


Really awesome hostel. Great location, facilities and staff. You'll feel very at home here


Really great hostel, super modern, really cool set up and great vibe. Excellent showers and AC. There's an awesome cafe downstairs that shares a courtyard and its such a great spot for your morning coffee. Get the French toast with caramelized bananas. Seriously. A


That is the best hostel I've ever been too. The rooms, beds were clean and the staff was really helpful. What's best about this place it is very quiet and even though it is really noisy outside in your rooms you can barely hear any noise from the outside. if i ever go to KL again, I'll definitely stay here at this place again.


As a solo f traveller, I felt extremely safe here. Great location and walking distance to the major tourist markets. The staff gave great advice on where to go and what to do if at a loose end. Only issue was the room I was in was on the road side so noisy morning traffic throughout rush hour.

I booked for one night and extended my stay for 2 more. The staff is superb! They are friendly, personable and professional. The rooms are spacious, large comfortable beds. Clean rooms and bathrooms. Being there gave me a feeling of being at home with friends. I hope they open Backhome in other countries. Huge THANK YOU to the staff including the ones working in Lokl, a delightful coffee house with delicious food.


This is a great place to stay in KL, I like the location, the staff, the environment, and the breakfast they provide. Everything there is above my expectation. It is near the metro station, about 5-10 min walk.


Found this to be a decent hostel. Stayed here for 4 nights. Its conveniently located close to the metro. The tv room is nice. Staff is friendly and helpful... The wifi works well...


put up another Backhome Hostel in Singapore!


One of the best hostels I've ever been. Everything is just perfect.


Good hostel - very modern industrial style so I felt at home, everything was kept simple and clean. The best feature was a sink in the private double room even though we shared bathrooms. Loads of storage space in the room and security was good too. The staff were so friendly Fuddli was very helpful with directions and questions. LOKL (local) is the adjoining cafe and has AWESOME coffee and breakfast! You will need to book well ahead to get into this place as it is popular.


Great peaceful hostel, close to restaurants and just a couple of minutes from the central market and china town. The atmosphere is amazing and the courtyard in the centre is the best spot. They even have a cafe next door where you can get good food. The only point was that my room, 209, smelled mold, really bad. I was waking up with my throat soring. I alerted the front desk, and nothing happened.


For cooking Gas facility should be provided in addition to Micro wave oven
