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.

Upon arrival very late at night was made to feel very welcome, during my stay all staff were very friendly and helpful, if ever in KL BACKHOME will be my choice

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...

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.

The atmosphere of this hostel is very good. I absolutely can recommend it.
