My stay at Back home was great! The hostel itself is designed like a garden with open terrace and also a few common areas, including a movie room. The staff were beyond helpful and breakfast was also included. The location is close to the station which is a plus!

Also easy to get to the train station and modern KL. The staff were very friendly and helpful and lots of details have been thought about. I've stayed in many hostels in capital cities but...

I've been traveling SE Asia for about four years, it was one of the best hostel ever! Only 5mins away from the monorail station, walkable distance to some attractions (KLCC, china town, pasar seni..) But a bit dangerous to...

A hostel with a nice atmosphere and just overall great. Showers and WC felt fresh and had both hot and cold water, and the rooms (me and my boyfriend had our own doubleroom) were modest but clean. Comfortable bed. The staff was friendly and helpful. Very satisfied with our stay and would love to come here again!

Definetly the best hostel we've stayed. The rooms are very comfortable, with lockers and closets. And the bathroom is nice and clean... The location is perfect, right beside the masjid Jamek station and walking distance to China Town and other attractions. The breakfast is simple but pretty good.
