Lowell C. Solo travelers Philippines, June 29, 2015
Overwhelmed with my experience.

Clean, accessible location and friendly staff.
I stayed for 3 days and 2 nights and indeed I had a great experience. Clean and accessible location near masjid jamek mrt. Sin Hoi How, one of the few cafes in KL who roast their own coffee is across the hostel. A lot of cheap food stalls ( 2-4 myr) near the hostel but they're close on weekends. Staff are friendly and accommodating. Breakfast includes white bread, kaya/butter/jam/, fruits like apple, papaya. I will come back to stay again.

Best Hostel!

Quality, Location, Overall Package
I have stayed at Backhome KL twice this month for just over a week in total over the two trips. During both stays the staff excelled themselves: they provided tasting samples of Malay deserts creating a social event in the lobby and escorted me to my taxi with an umbrella during pouring rain. Sometimes it's the little touches that really matter. Welcoming, clean, fantastic facilities, excellent showers, great food next door, really comfy beds with useful and practical storage. Could not rate this hostel more highly!
Sylvia Y. Solo travelers Taiwan, June 19, 2015

Brilliant! I went back for a night on my return to KL too I loved it so much & the staff remembered me! So clean, modern & comfortable, staff knew their stuff too. Good value for KL & the wifi was the best I've found across South East Asia! I'm recommending to all my fellow travellers. Thank you Backhome KL!

Emma C. Solo travelers United Kingdom, June 4, 2015

Excellent facilities, great location, helpful staff.
Easily the best hostel I have stayed in in South East Asia so far. Would recommend to anyone travelling to KL.
Lucia C. Solo travelers Canada, June 1, 2015
I love this place

Cafe/hangout area, movie/nap lounge, really cozy rooms
This hostel is the most comfortable amenities filled hostel possible in KL. Everything from the Macs they have for you to use, to their air conditioned movie lounge, to the care they take to write on the chalkboard doors everyone's names in the room so you can find your new friends easily, the little cupboards you get bedside, everything is aesthetically pleasing, and it's right next door to really cheap indian/malay/chinese food as it's in chinatown. The only thing is, it is located on the road in an overpass (the MTR is ahead) so it can feel a little bit sketchy to walk out at night but there are so many good people at the hostel it's easy to find mates to go out at night with. love this place!
