Hostelworld says

BackHome Kuala Lumpur is in a great, central location near Petaling St and Chinatown, the central Market, Merdaka Square, KL Tower, the Islamic Art Museum and more. We like the clean and modern design of this hostel, which was rated the most popular in Kuala Lumpur at the 2011 Hoscars. There's lights and power points at each bed and 'really friendly, knowledgeable staff', according to our guests, who also tell us this is 'not a party place like some of the local hostels but perfect for chilling out and meeting people'.

Property Description

Stay at BackHome for a unique stay in a converted pre-war building located in the heritage district, with guided walks to let you experience KL just like the locals do.

BackHome is housed in a row of pre-war shophouses, carefully preserved since the 1880s. The modern interiors feature spacious dorms built around a light filled courtyard, a screening room and a buzzing hipster café that serves the best coffee in the area.

We are situated in a historic neighbourhood, with many textile, sundry shops and food outlets still being run by the same families. Popular destinations such as Chinatown, local bazaars, 100 year-old temples, a 100 year-old rainforest reserve lets you experience the many facets of Kuala Lumpur.

We aim to show you the best of what KL has to offer through our popular guided walks. These include a food tour in the last surviving Malay Village in the city, biking tours and a hike up a magnificent limestone ridge.

    Its a very clean and comfy hostel, liked the showers and bathroom, breakfast was good, and rooms are big with comfy beds. Very quiet hostel, maybe a bit hard to meet people but it also depends on your effort. Would definitely recommend. I was very happy with my stay

BackHome Kuala Lumpur says

We're the only hostel in Malaysia with a guarantee that guests will receive as much care, comfort and peace as they do at home. We promise that every guests will receive personal attention, a good night's rest and peace of mind. Besides using premium bedding and cleaning the beds thoroughly after every guest, we deep clean all mattresses twice a month to make sure they are 100% hygienic. We provide more personal and common space than most other hostels in KL.
We're located right in the heart of the historical district, just a few minutes away from Masjid Jamek, Merdeka Square, Little India and Chinatown. We also have Bukit Nanas forest reserve - a million year old rainforest reserve less than 10 minutes walk away.
I personally recommend having drinks at Skybar in Traders Hotel for an up-close view of the Twin Towers at sunset.
Our main age group is between 25 and 40 years. We get less guests under 20 because of our premium price point. We're also starting to get families because they feel more secure here than in a party hostel.
