      Wow this place blew me away! Such an amazing hostel that is close to the train station. Staff were incredibly nice and actually remembered your name haha. Washrooms were always clean and the beds were really comfortable. If you're lucky enough to stay there on a thursday, they provide a local malay breakfast which is DELICIOUS! One of the best hostels ive stayed in throughout Asia.

      This place was great! The people at the front desk were really helpful. When I had questions about getting to the places I wanted to visit, they took the time to help me out. I had an early bus to catch at the airport and they packed toast for me since I wouldn't get to eat breakfast. It's about a 2 minute walk to the train station and there are a lot of places to eat at outside if you don't feel like trying out the food they have. I would definitely come back and stay in this same one.

      Incredible hostel!”

      Pros: Great hostel which is centrally located near Chinatown and the local train. Staff are very friendly and welcoming, and the rooms are clean with great air conditioning systems and wifi. Cons: Their laundry services are on the higher end compared to local places and it takes over 24 hours to get the clothes back.

      The best accommodation in KL!”

      There are so many new hostels and hotels which claims to provide you everything, but most cannot sustain for a long period of time. BackHome KL may have operated for nearly ten years. I stayed in 2016 and this year (2019). In 2016 I felt comfortable in the dormitory room, that beds are not too close to each other as well. This year I wanna try something different: the private double room which is also an impressive experience for me. The staff especially the security guard at night are so friendly and helpful. The air well traditional building with cosy design and both social / individual space is also appreciated. Surely BackHome is one of the strong reason for me to visit KL again and again! Hope this hostel can continue the best service in the long run.

      The hostel is comfortable. All staffs are very nice and friendly, also helpful. The location is strategic because the hostel is located near to the LRT Station so we could go to all the attractions in KL easily. For us, who doesn't have much money, we are helped by this hostel so much because of free breakfast in the morning. Every thursday, this hostel serves local breakfast so we could taste traditional food from Malaysia. Also we could make friends with other foreigners in the dorm which makes my stay here more funny. Next time if I go back to KL, I will definitely stay at Backhome KL. Thank you, Backhome KL for you nice service!

      This place is just amazing : dorms and bathrooms are clean, big and really nice. Staff is extremely friendly and helpful. The whole hostel is very pleasant and comfortable with patios, shared spaces and a good coffee place attached to it. And Staff organise stuff for guests (henna session, local breakfast, tea times, etc.) ! I would have stayed here forever and would definitely come back next time I’m in KL.

      One of my favourite hostels the world over, Backhome KL is irresistible for its closeness to a Metro station, and so far I have not found another hostel of this quality and proximity to one of the most convenient public transport lines in Kuala Lumpur. The dorms are sufficiently large that you won’t feel crammed, at least most of the ones I’ve been put in. And the beds are now individually cleaned and inspected once the last guest has left, which assures me of cleanliness. Beds themselves are spacious and comfortable. Best parts are the friends you’ll make in the dorms and in the hostel, and every staff is friendly, even the ladies who take care of your linen etc. On my most current stay, Tevi and Razi have been very accommodating to me whether it’s about a personal matter, or about my stay. There are also the staff whose names I can’t remember who are always friendly even though they should be bored of me having come here many times over a few years now.

      Loved it!”

      Probably one of our favourite hostels we've stayed at across Europe and Asia. The room was modern, the bathrooms plentiful and clean. Breakfast a little on the basic side, but definitely acceptable. The cafe attached serves some great food and the location of the hostel is perfect for exploring KL. The staff could've been a little more helpful with some recommendations - we had a few questions regarding some local sites and transit and they weren't able to help. We'd stay here again next time we're in KL!

      Almost perfect!”

      I love this hostel. It is cozy, clean and chic. The lounge is somewhere you’d like to hang around. The bed is big, and the locker is big enough for a luggage case. Surprisingly, in the 4-bed room is a sink, so I can wash my hands and brush my teeth in the room (hooray).Though a washing machine is not available (it offers laundry service), there is an enclosure for people to hang clothes to dry (which I need desperately). The hostel offers simple breakfast, with occasional surprise. One day I was lucky enough to have roti, taro cake and teh tarik(milk tea) for breakfast. That was out of this world!
