    I mean, they switched us rooms but the first room was covered in bed bugs. Not that i really blame them for it cause you know backpackers coming in and out of a place im sure it happens all the time. And the rest of the place was clean. Its kinda nice they have a breakfast deal with the shop next door cause it was pretty good food.

    This is an incredible hostel from beginning to end! I had arrived after a long bus and transit ride from another city, and as I walked into Back Home Hostel, I was welcomed instantly and warmly! I was even given a cold refreshing drink to cool down after my long journey! I believe the name of the lady who was so friendly and welcoming was Olivia - she was incredible and also gave me a full tour of the place before showing me to my room. The room and washrooms were very clean, garbages were emptied regularly, staff came into sweep the floors at least 1x/day. The one odd thing with the room I was staying in (4 bed female dorm #208 I think) was that the other bottom bunk had their light facing towards my bed instead of away and unfortunately that person continuously fell asleep with the light on and it was directly lighting up my whole bed. A curtain for this aspect would be great. Overall, this is an awesome hostel, it’s in a great location to some sights, and right beside a transit stop making it easy to go anywhere. The hostel itself is very neat and clean. The staff go above and beyond every day, I would definitely recommend BackHome Kuala Lumpur!!

      Good stay.

      Security met me as I arrived after midnight. They were very kind and helpful. The building is modern concrete and set well in the environment to accommodate palm trees in the middle of the courtyard. Decent showers.
