      BEST Hostel at Kuala Lumpur”

      Cozy. Great Location, Friendly Staff

      Backhome KL was a fantastic hostel that made my stay in Kuala Lumpur that much better. 24 hour front desk assistance, friendly staff, and a great location. Our room are very clean and they have travel supplies for reasonable prices. Simple and nice breakfast. Fantastic place that I definitely recommend to anyone looking for a budget stay in Kuala Lumpur! Cozy lounge area where you can meet with other travelers. That's the other best part of my travel in Kuala Lumpur, finding new friends and I needed not to go far to look for them - they're my fellow flash/backpackers and travelers staying @ Backhome KL. Thank you so much Backhome KL for making my stay in Malaysia memorable, and best of all, it felt like home. I'd definetely go to this hostel again

      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.

      Location, design, staff

      I love the design and layout of Backhome KL. They had writable walls where they write personalized welcome notes and the name of the guest(s) staying in the room. I am picky with toilets so I was relieved to see that their communal toilets were very clean and well maintained. It's walking distance to attractions like Menara, Petaling St., Central Market and Jalan Alor. Otherwise, you can always take the train which is 5 min. walk away. It was very accessible and near convenience stores, eateries and even McDonalds. The common area where guests eat is a great place to meet new people. They serve free breakfast (toast, cereals, coffee/tea) or you can order from their cafe next door, LOKL. They also have a movie room. The staff were nice and very helpful about where to go and what to eat. There are a couple of iMacs in the lobby where you can search the net with ease. Loved every second in Backhome KL and I wish I could have stayed longer. WELL RECOMMENDED!

      my friends and i spent a night here in backhome,kl. my first impression is when the staff took us to the room, there is my name on the door of the room, it showed how welcome this place is. i like the location here pretty much because it's near by the train station and chinatown where we could go hanging out at night. in the morning, we had a breakfast here before we left, i'd say food is in an average standard but the more interesting thing is a court in the middle of the hostel which created such an awesome atmosphere. i really appreciate the design here and if i have a chance to come back to kl, i will stay here for sure. thank for a good memory in kl

      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.

      Definitely going back when I visit KL again”

      Very cozy hostel. Clean and comfy beds, Great internet connection. Near MRT (Masjid Jamek) station.

      This was my first stay at a hostel. My experience in Backhome is completely unforgettable and unregretful one. There were seven of us that went there early in the morning, they let us in and didn't mind us lounging or sleeping at the common room. At 7am, when Tony (the assigned receptionist) arrived we asked if we could check-in earlier than the standard check-in time, no sweat after giving the deposits and signing some papers, he handed us the keys and led us to our rooms immediately. We were relieved to leave our luggage safe and secured in our rooms before starting with the tour. Their hospitality didn't just stop there...we were supposed to check-out at 12nn, but we got stuck at Bukit Bintang and came in late (1.30pm already) at Backhome. They didn't make a fuss about it or charge us extra ringgit but simply told us to packed our things at soonest possible time. Our itinerary showed us that we still have 9 hours before our scheduled train departure bound to Singapore. Backhome also provides storage for travelers just RM 8 per day (make sure to bring your own lock). We rented one, it was big enough for all our luggage combined. When we're about to leave BH to shop for more souvenirs, rain began to fall. It continued for two hours, so then again we we're stuck and thankfully, BH didn't mind us staying at the common room, they let us connect to the WIFI, charge our gadgets and use their showers, all for free. One of their staff told us that even though we're officially checked-out they still treat us as guests. At 8pm we said our goodbyes to staff, and wrote a message on guest's journal of our great experience we had at Backhome.

      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!

      Bed and locality

      backhome kl is in chinatown where you can find the best malay foods and busy markets. i found it to be a convenient location, with friendly staff. they have a security guard on premise for after hours and i found the place was clean and safe as female traveller. i stayed in the 4 dorm and it had plenty of space. the beds were sturdy and did not creak! there is also air-conditioning in the rooms with a basin and mirror. showers and bathroom were communal. the breakfast was very basic so i opted to eat at the all day and night diner just a block away. if you don't want to travel far there is also a cafe next door. overall i enjoyed my stay and will stay there again in future.

      The staff was very amazing, the rooms were great and the hostel's atmosphere/layout/look was great...

      Our stay was simply great! We came to the Backhome KL, after having stayed at the Reggae Mansion nearby. I must say that I absolutely loved Backhome KL. We were greeted by friendly staff, our room was spacious and bright, the bed was comfortable. The inner courtyard was cozy and the bathrooms cool. Maybe I am being too positive since our stay before that was rather bad but I have really nothing to complain about. I wish I could have stayed longer and if I ever find myself in KL again, I will definitely stay here! I can highly recommend this hostel...

      Fantastic hostel, great location”

      Backhome KL is a superb option for budget travelers. The location is very central and easily accessible by public transit or airport shuttle. It's also very close to many of the city's central sights. The staff are incredibly friendly and helpful, and will be happy to address any of your concerns or just chat about KL, Malaysian culture, and life in general. The free breakfast is a great added bonus, especially on Thursday's when they serve traditional Malaysian fare. If you hang around in the lobby throughout the day, there are snacks and sometimes drinks available for everyone to share. The beds are comfortable, the rooms are spacious, and the whole place is very trendy and well-maintained. I would definitely stay here again.

      The best so far! ”

      Nver had a hostel experience as personal as this. We cane from the Philippines 🇵🇭 and landed in Singapore about roughly 5hrs travel including the wait times in between. We arrive in SG around 12MN and went straight ahead to KL to make use of the waiting time. Imagine how exhausted we are as we hop on 3 countries..but KV.. KV was the best frontline. We are suppose to check in 3pm but we arrive early in KL i think that was 9amish but KV was very kind enough to welcome and had us eat free breakfast and made her way in even checking us early as scheduled. Never had so much relief in my life until KV. THANK YOU SOOO MUCH BACKHOME KL ♥️

      Staff are nice and accommodating. It's walking distance from most of the tourist spots in the city. I like it as well how close the hostel in the LRT station, and how you view the KL tower from the hostel. The shower room are clean too. Tho you need to pay for towel. But it's okay I guess. One thing I will remember in this hostel is that I was able to make new friends. I stayed for first time in mixed room... and I never regret it. It was one of a kind experience. Thanks Backhome KL for wonderful memories.

      Wonderful hostel with pricy extras”

      Comfortable beds, excellent staff, great showers

      The staff of this hostel are some of the best I've dealt with across Asia and earth really. The other reviews can tell you what is great about this place, which is basically everything. However, the things that they sell there are quite overpriced, I don't know what the going rate is for laundry in KL but Backhome asked for 2-3x as much as anywhere in Thailand (including island resorts). And they just sell soda/beer/snacks for a lot, but I guess it's a covenience thing. I would discourage from purchasing their extras, but for the price I felt that the service/comfort/overall great feel was absolutely worth it

      Backhome KL is basically perfect. Beds were comfortable, lockers were very nice. Bathrooms were good. Close to Masjid Jamek station and Chinatown, walkable to KL Tower and Petronas/KLCC if you're energetic. Awesome Indian food right outside the door. Staff was friendly. Zero complaints.

      So comfy place and outstanding friendly staff”

      Cleanliness, comfortable rooms, friendly staff

      I'm not a guy that use to goes to hostels or backpackers places. I'm more into nice hotels. But I found Backhome like a great deal. The place is so comfortable, with amazing rooms. It was so comfortable even I shared the room with five other people!! Nice shower areas, so good beds and rooms and everything was way too clean. Don't forget to stop by the coffee shop just behind them (great cakes) and Oishii Ramen just in front. The location is great: far enough from creepy Petaling and just a minute from the LRT. I will go back next time in KL.

      What a great experience in KL!”

      Backhome KL was such a treasure to find. We loved every second. The breakfasts were great, the local cafe was a blessing (along with their own coffee provisions!) and establishment was clean and comfortable. Plus, it was nearby great locations such as Jalan Petaling and Merdeka Square with the LRT just a short walk away. Plus, if you have any questions, they are totally willing to answer, accommodate, and help you in any way. While we didn't sign up for any of their hosted trips, I've heard they're great fun too. Take advantage of staying here if you can! You won't regret it. For more information about our time there, please visit: jdmoore90.wordpress.com

      Excellent hostel amongst city attractions”

      Great, helpful and lovely staff to cater all your needs. Rooms and common area was very clean. A nice place to interact with other people especially when you're travelling alone.

      My stay @Backhome was really nice. Before booking, I was little sceptical about staying in an hostel. But, after reading the good reviews I choose to stay here and I loved my stay. The hostel is well maintained, clean and caters almost every need of a solo-traveler. You can sit and interact with other guests in the common area. I had lovely interactions with European citizens, Chinese and Vietnamese here. Learnt a lot about there culture too. Lovely people. Most of the attraction are close by so you could walk or take a MRT(metro) which is just 5 mins walk away. There are couple of attractions where you get discount if you purchase your tickets from the hostel counter. China town, the place where I spent 2 nights, is just 10 mins walk away. Definitely a value for money. I wish I had more days to stay here. Thanks @BackhomeKL people for making my first trip to KL a memorable one. :)

      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!

      Excellent staff!”

      The staff, the in house activities and communal areas

      I stayed at BackHome KL from 3rd to 5th December and my stay was so pleasant. The staff were so friendly and helpful when I checked in. The overall environment at BackHome was great. The rooms were clean, the showers had hot water and the communal areas were comfy. The movie room is an excellent addition to the hostel, its air conditioned and has a tonne of movies. Each bed within the dormitory had its own light and power point. In addition, you have your own locker to store your bags (bring a lock). Would stay again!
