Tell me please if which one is more natural in the following context: be back or be back home?

Person A: What time did you get home from work yesterday?

Person B: I was back/back home at 7 pm.

If neither sounds particularly idiomatic, what would sound so?


Either sounds fine. It would probably sound most idiomatic to match the questioner's get verb by replying "I got back [home] at 7pm".
