We stayed here in March in a 6-bed mixed dorm upstairs. The dorm room had big closets and each bed had its own little cabinet with reading lights, shelves, a space to hang clothes/towels. You also get a locker with a space for a backpack, and three shelves. We had a sink and counter area in our dorm, great for...

Amazing interior decor, comfortable beds and very reasonably priced considering. On top of that attached to a really nice cafe called lokl. If you're looking for a chilled out hostel/hotel vibe then look no further

I stayed here for three nights in Feb 2017 in a 6 bed dorm. The room was very clean, bed was comfortable with chargers and personal lights and there were big lockers to secure my things. The showers were some of the best I've seen in hostels - big rain shower heads and meticulously clean. I would highly recommend this...

Stayed in a private room and it was nice and comfortable. The place is big and spacious equipped with clean toilets and hot water. The Lokl cafe within the hostel served good food as well. My favorite would be the passionfruit yogurt drink. Its a must try!

What a find! I wanted to stay in the city for our first few days in Malaysia and found BackHome KL. My wife had never traveled in Asia so wanted to ensure a great first trip. Ivan, Grace and the team were instant on the hospitality and care the minute we walked in our jet-lagged and tired state. Great room....
