Yes, we ♡ Berlin. But every now and then we like to wonder the world to look for a bit of adventure and inspiration ourselves. Our marketing team is in Asia right now and just visited BackHome, the #1 coolest hostel in Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia).
BackHome is a boutique hostel, centrally located in the heart of Kuala Lumpur’s historical center. And the design and atmosphere of the place make you want to stay there forever! Laze in their spacious courtyard with a book or free wifi. Enjoy a well deserved meal and sip a lattee at their in-house cafe (called LOKL). Watch a movie in their cinema room. Or socialise and check local hot spot tips with the super friendly staff. Chances are you won’t leave the hostel though. It’s truly a downtown oasis!
