By far one of the best hostels I've visited!
Alia from Canada

Super clean and quiet. It's all the little things that add up here. Huge lockers, individual bed lights, complimentary afternoon tea and cookies, excursions, 24 hour theatre... I do think towel service should be included as it is in other hostels.

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.

Many Mosquitoes in Toilets.(👀)エッ...ʬʬʬꉂꉂ😁…🤔💭‪(๑•🐽•๑)‬”
A guard guy is always feeling bad because I always come to the side to the side every morning when I am in the second floor washroom at midnight and come to see the body while grinning. I'd like you to change security guards. Also, when exchanging the bed sheets, it is good to stand up the mattress and take out dust and spray the bed bug, but as the gap is large under the upper bed, it is so much empty that dirt, insects and insect eggs on the upper bed All fall down on the bed below, and it is not cleaning. I was dirty on the second day and the bed was rough and uncomfortable. Fruit is out of stock whenever breakfast. I want you to replenish. Also I would like to have the deodorant in the room. Because there are many smelly customers and windows do not open. Male staff at reception and buildings are good.👏🏻✨🐑💤💭(🌸´∇`🌸)アハッ

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!

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.
