Very well located and good installations. The only issues is that there is absolutely no ventilation in the rooms which end up smelling wet towels. The ac also doesn’t have regulation in the room so it’s pretty cold. Breakfast is standard coffee, bread, jam and fruits.

Spot on. What they promised, they delivered. First time that I was offered the complimentary breakfast even though I'm not yet checked in. And the most accommodating, detail oriented staff I've had the pleasure to meet.
Abigail from Philippines

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.

Best hostel EVER !”
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.

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!

Amazing”
Best hostel I've stayed in. Just as in pictures, kept very clean, breakfast is good, beds are comfortable, there are big lockers for everyone that can even fit your luggage (backpack or small suitcase), staff is amazing and very polite and eager to help you with anything. At night it's very quiet and calm, not a party hostel but there's several communal spaces for socialising. It's located rather close to the Petaling Street (china town) and has lot of restaurants nearby. If coming from airport it's a short walking distance from Pudu Sentral where the star shuttle stops. there's multiple showers and toilets that were also kept very clean. dorm rooms have their own sinks as well and ac was an all day in the dorms and reception area.

The environment is good. Near KL tower and Sentral Market. Actually, not far to KL twins tower either. Breakfast is good, free coffee and tea. Milktea and snacks there is awesome. Staffs are kind and the information from them is helpful. But the rent for a bath towel is 5 RM. If u stay here for more than 2 days in a row, never mind. P. S I met some other backpackers who told me u can get a lower price but almost the same hostel in KL. Idk but u can compare with them. Maybe u will confirm this one is better lol.

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

The location is near train and bus stations, and a walking distance to major tourist spots too. We just walked to Masjid Jamek, Merdeka Square, Central Market, Jalan Alor, KL Tower and Petronas Twin Towers. Highly recommended!
