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.
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.
My 2 night stay in the 8bed female dorm was nice. The place is clean and the bed is comfortable. Nothing in the room is shaky or makes you worry. The staff are nice too. Breakfast is great and the renovation is superb. Definitely worth the value.
It feels like back to home!”
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!
Best hostel I've been to so far. Great place. Location, cleanliness, staffs were perfect.
Great breakfast, nice staff, clean rooms and comfy beds. The only bad par was that there was no curtains for the beds made for couples, no privase
The air conditioner is around 13 degrees at night and it is not adjustable, it's cold and sleepless”
The building was good. The small Muslim female staff carried the luggage and it was kind and apathetic. was.The Chinese female staff was unfriendly and inflexible. Young white customers in the same room were silent and creepy for two days.❄👾❄👾❄👾❄👾❄👾
satisfaction for day and night staying.”
the staff here is friendly, helpful and very caring. the hostels are not just aesthetically designed coordinated, but also it gives comfort and has lots of choices for spaces to do your own stuff. it was a good experience to be here as a Malaysian. 👍
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!
Couldnt ask for more!”
Best hostel ive ever stayed in! The staffs were super nice and friendly. The room, bathroom and basically all rooms were all clean. The breakfast was good. The location was strategic as its very near with masjid jamek station 👍👍👍
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.
Everything you need”
It’s my 5th time staying here. Pros: Located very near to Masjid Jamek LRT station, super helpful staffs, cleanliness is never an issue, free-flowing coffee/tea/water, comfy bed & pillow with good air conditioning, there’s a cafe next door, movie room. Cons: can’t seem to find one yet
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!
Nice stay ”
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.
The hostel is clean and I love the interior. Getting to the hostel can be quite hard to find, may require to use map. The food tour was good too, the food are delicious. Otherwise, the room aircon temperature is fixed. Hence, it can be quite hot sometimes. But overall, i would love to come again!
Just a few minutes walk to LRT station. Staff are kind and warm welcome.
Frieldly staff ”
Staff was amazing friendly and good atmosphere.
Awesome stay !!!!!”
Great location & close to LRT station .the bed were comfy friendly staff !
How to give more than 5 stars?”
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.
