The staff were super friendly and helpful. The facilities are nice and there's wifi and air conditioning in all the rooms. Super accessible as well, less than a five minute walk to the nearest lrt station!

I really enjoyed this hostel and will actually be going back in a couple weeks. The bathrooms were nice with hot showers. The breakfast was small but filling and the rooms were spacious and private. Really like this place!

Big, comfortable beds in 6 bed dorm. Staff could be more helpful with tourist information.

This is my 2nd time staying at BackHome, I would recommend it for sure. Rooms are spacious and clean. Huge lockers (bring your own lock) for added security. Washing facilities are co-ed (and I found that there were lots of mosquitoes in the bathroom area - beware!). Street noise is loud (both times I stayed here I had a front, street-facing room) and if you're a light sleeper this might be a problem. Sink in the room is a bonus. Located close to Chinatown (convenient but kinda sketchy).

Excellent Hostel! One of the best I've stayed at. Not a party hostel at all so perfect for chilling out. Very good location, very close to a subway station.

Really nice, clean hostel with very good facilities. They've got the little touches which make life so much easier as a backpacker (reading light, plug by your bed etc). Staff were very friendly. It's outside of KL Sentral so a map of the city and the subway would have made life a little easier. Very good coffee shop next door and lots of eating options for all budgets around. Not far from night markets,p or the main square. Not a party hostel at all so if you're looking to party, go elsewhere.

I can't say enough good things about the front desk staff. So friendly and helpful! That gave great directions to the best food in the city. Air conditioning works great, rooms are spacious and clean.

Awesome place, very social and easy to meet people but also quiet to sleep at night. Beds are big & comfy (they have a queen size 4 bed dorm for couples!) and have their own lamps, a shelf and power in the headboard (awesome for charging your electronics safely whilst you sleep!) and staff are super helpful and friendly. Cafe right next door is a little bit pricey but good. Free tea, coffee, water 24/7, good showers, movie/chillout room, airy & bright, great location. Would thoroughly recommend.

A big hostel that provided a good free breakfast and was very clean. The staff could have been more informative, but overall this is a good place to stay in KL. Located near china town which was useful.

Great place with a really good vibe. Staff were awesome. So helpful and always so nice. Not a party hostel but you can go down the road to reggae mansion to party and come home to a quiet place. I would stay there again for sure!

It was ok, the rooms were clean and spacious. However, the wifi was broken for most of my stay so that was a real inconvenience. Also the showers were really small. Otherwise the staff were ok, didn't get much of a feel for the place because the common room was empty most of the time, but maybe I didn't spend enough time there.

Very close to a metro station on a main metro line. Staff very willing to help. Nice decor with a patio where to have breakfast. I would just have liked to get sheets in my bed, rather than a blanket...
