This is a Trusted Review. Why?

We stayed in a private room that was very basic, but it had a comfy bed and aircon. The shared bathroom was fine enough, and the free breakfast was good. The guy who checked us in was super friendly. The room was a bit expensive, but I would stay there again because of the cleanliness of the room and the location to the train station.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

BackHome is a hostel as comfortable as HOME!!
The employees are friendly to offer some travel information as you need. The space is great, you could have own space at you room and bed, and you also could have some social life at lobby and yard. I just checked out yesterday, but I hope I could visit there soon~ :)
