This is BackHome

We’re a boutique backpackers’ hostel in the heart of old KL, surrounded by charming colonial-era shophouses and located in the city centre’s Heritage District.

Our Story

Stretching across six restored colonial-era shophouses, BackHome is an award-winning boutique backpackers’ hostel located in the heart of old Kuala Lumpur – a lively historical district with easy access to the LRT.



As hosts, we want to show you the KL we love. From guided walks, urban hikes, to cooking classes, we tailor experiences and activities to make your KL trip memorable.

A Good Night's Rest

What you probably miss most when you travel is your own bed. We can’t give you that, but we can make sure our rooms are as clean, comfortable, and quiet as possible.


Been to a hostel and discovered it’s not as good looking as the photos? If you don’t like what you see when you arrive, we’ll not only recommend other top-rated hostels, we’ll even help you make the reservation.

At BackHome, we provide more than just clean, comfortable accommodation; we want to make your KL visit the best one yet. From leading food tours and city walks to organising nature hikes outside of town, our team of friendly, passionate individuals will help you experience the city like a local.
