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

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.
Fastastic place. Everthing is excellent !!!!
Nothing to says because everthing is perfect and excellent for staying at BackHome Kuala Lumpur. Honestly speaking when I travel at Brunei, Indonesia, Thailand, Singapore, Vietnam and other country, I look so many different when I staying at BackHome Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia. I want tell to everybody people when come to Malaysia please staying at BackHome Kuala Lumpur because this is a fantastic place, beuatiful place, clean, very2x confortable place, very2x privacy place and lastly it perfect !
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.
