definitely one the best hostels in SEA

comfort, very good facilities and friendly staff
Backhome is one of the best hostels in SEA. Rooms are very clean, Staff are very friendly. Breakfast is good as they do not only serve toast and coffee but cereals and fruits as well. It is very homey and just lounging around the hostel is very relaxing. Will definitely book again if I visit KL.
