What Our Team Thinks About Working At BackHome

Team Member, Since 2015

I’ve worked in the financial institution for 2 years before joining BackHome. I chose to work here because as a backpacker myself, this would be the ideal hostel I want to stay in. Working at Backhome feels like a brand new adventure everyday!

Admin Executive, Since 2015

I graduated from UiTM with an Operations Management degree and was recommended by a friend to join BackHome KL. They have a team who makes me feel welcome and I love the atmosphere with reliable colleagues and a supportive team. BackHome KL is always guiding me to move forward.

Tour & Travels Manager, Since 2010

I love the fun, laidback work environment. Every team member gets to contribute ideas about how the hostel is managed.

Operations Manager, Since 2010

BackHome KL is not just a home for backpackers but a home for me as well. The most wonderful thing about us is the diversity of Malay, Chinese and Indians within a tightly-knit team. This is what Malaysia is about.

Yok Lan
General Manager, Since 2009

I was a TV drama producer before I started working in BackHome. I love learning new things – about traveling, running a hostel, or the F&B industry, now that we have our own LOKL Coffee Co. I love learning from each member of the team as we all try to build the perfect hostel.

Housekeeping Supervisor, Since 2010

I love getting to know friends from all over the world, and my English has improved tremendously too!!
