Quirky little stay in Kuala Lumpur

Casual laid back chilled atmosphere making the stay stress free
Staff where helpful Back home is a good name for this quirky place of rest. Loved what they have done with the rooms, simple but comfortable. Your name goes on the black board door is very different.

Chic-niche hostel

Strategic location, clean environment and no frill concept
It has to be one of the best room sharing experience i had, thus far. The environment is friendly, accompanied by the up to notch cleanliness. The location spurred a rightful advantage to single travellers. You can actually walk to city area within 10-20mins. How quaint! Smiley and comforting faces greeted us upon our check in. That's an assuring outlook anytime! Recommended!

Comfy & clean place to stay, excellent location.

Location, coffee shop next door, value for money
Made out stay in KL very enjoyable. Staff were very helpful on a number of things. Excellent location, close to everything! Coffee shop next door was really nice for a quick caffeine fix and served delicious food for an easy lunch or breakfast. Rooms were clean and comfy. Introduced to other friends and would stay here when ever we are back in KL.
