Accommodation Information

Our Single and Double PODs are partitioned spaces, giving some privacy away from the main 16-bed and 4-bed dorms. The pods have mattresses on raised platforms to give a Zen like feel, and some come with ceiling to floor lengthen tinted windows, all have individual fans. Shared lights go out at 11pm. Our dorms have double bunk beds and are in a large area with plenty of personal space.

We have adopted this concept to keep the space :

1. Airy- PODs partitioned walls are not full to the ceiling to promote good air circulation
2. Bright- Wooden blinds and tinted windows
3. Clean- No shoes and no smoking on all floors
Each floor has two eco-friendly kampong (village) design hot water shower cabins.

Central air-cond units are placed strategically to cool the floors and all designs and themes that have been put up are chosen as best to compliment and promote our eco-friendly theme, which is, to be simple, and always go green = less is best, and when traveling, respect the earth!

Location Information

PODs The Backpackers Home
1-6, No 30 Jalan Thambipillay

PODs The Backpackers Home is just within walking distance from KL Sentral, which is the transportation hub of Kuala Lumpur. Buses, trains, monorail, LRT, KTM and taxis are easily found. Hence travelling to local attractions such as The Golden Triangle, China Town, Mid valley, Lake Gardens, Thean Hou Temple and the National Museum or connecting to other states in the country are very convenient. Located just behind the main road, we are accessible yet away from the main hustle and bustle of traffic.

There is a number of local food stores available in the area, as well as banks, money changers, post office, cheap liquor and 24-hour convenience stores. A must try for local foods is the Chapati at Chapati House, Banana Leaf rice and famous pork noodles. For an Indian Vegetarian Fine Dining experience, ask us about Annalakshmi, they provide good food for a minimum donation.
