Stay at BackHome for a unique stay in a converted pre-war building located in the heritage district, with guided walks to let you experience KL just like the locals do.
BackHome is housed in a row of pre-war shophouses, carefully preserved since the 1880s. The modern interiors feature spacious dorms built around a light filled courtyard, a screening room and a buzzing hipster café that serves the best coffee in the area.
We are situated in a historic neighbourhood, with many textile, sundry shops and food outlets still being run by the same families. Popular destinations such as Chinatown, local bazaars, 100 year-old temples, a 100 year-old rainforest reserve lets you experience the many facets of Kuala Lumpur.
We aim to show you the best of what this neighbourhood has to offer through our popular guided walks. These include a food tour in the last surviving Malay Village in the city centre, and a hiking tour overlooking a mountain range.
Since opening in 2009, BackHome has been consistently voted one of the best hostels in Malaysia.
