Liked: As good as it looks in the photos!! From the warm welcome, efficient staff on the front desk who also gave a quick tour on arrival and showed me up to the room, to the quality of facilities and generous well thought out spaces of the dorms and common areas - faultless!

Liked: Rooms are very spacious. it's perfect if you're traveling on your own because you can easily meet a lot of people, they have a nice area where you can hang out. The staff is very friendly. Super clean.

Disliked: Beds are very small, unless you get the deluxe bed, which is more expensive. If you're above 5.11 (1.79 cm) you won't be able to fully extend your legs. The problem is solved if you sleep in an upper bunk. There's no toilet/shower in the rooms, you'd have to go outside.

Liked: This is the best hostel I've stayed in. The standards delivered by the staff exceed that of some very good hotels I have stayed in in my professional life. The hostel's boutique approach is great and I was genuinely disappointed to have to move on.

Disliked: Absolutely nothing!

Liked: Backhome KL has stony walls, but it is what lends it the character, a bit of cool and makes it easy to clean. An incredible oasis amidst busy streets of china town, with spacious rooms and helpfull staff.

Disliked: The street in which Backhome is located smells a bit.
