Back Home KL is really a great hostel to stay. Just a two minutes walk to MRT-Station Masijd Jamek, Staff is really helpful and well organized. We had a great time in KL.

Great dorm set up, especially if you want to just chill out - definitely not a party hostel though. Spacious, good wifi and most importantly, working aircon! Easy to get to from the LCCT airport (shuttle to KL Sentral and then LRT two stops followed by a two minute walk to the hostel). I've stayed in lost of different places in KL and this is my favorite hostel by far. Worth the extra $$$

Overall, the hostel is really nice, the location is great, the architecture of the house is simply amazing especially the backyard which is shared with the really nice café next door, the chalk-doors are funny and the rooms are clean and pretty new. Also, the beds are very spacious! However, the bathrooms are not in best shape, the toilets often were dirty and the shower heads a bit mouldy.

Best place to stay in KL. Facilities were amazing and clean, beds were so sooo comfy and staff was funny helpful and kind. Courtyard is beauty and internet works great everywhere in the building. Had so much fun and can't wait to. Come back to my second home at Backhome!

The hostel was very handy to most places in Kuala Lumpur. The area where you could make a cup of tea/coffee could have been larger, but it was great to have such spacious dorms, and an outdoor/indoor feel to the building.

Cool hostel. Reggae rooftop bar is right next to the place. Great times and great view at that bar. About a 35 min walk to the Petronas Towers. Would stay at this hostel again.

One of the best hostels If been to. The facilities are great, the beds are comfy, the rooms are big..breakfast is not special but included. I met lovely people at the hostel, the atmosphere is nice and the staff is very helpful and friendly. The location is very good, next to a lrt station and china town is in walking distance.

Loved this place! Will definitely come back whenever I'm in Malaysia. Only gripe was that the airconditioning in the 6 bed mixed dorm could not get any colder. :(

I stayed here 4 nights during 3 separate dates, location is good, be careful of cab drivers ripping you off from KL sentral get a monorail or LRT instead. Main road is busy and noisy but staff will provide earplugs if you request them. It's clean and staff are very helpful although my last room did smell of cheese, there may have been a cheese hoarder in the room at the time.
