    Late

    Hello! how are you? Thanks in advance!

    1.- I would like to say "I came back home at a late time yesterday"

    Does it work the following sentence?

    "I CAME BACK HOME LATE AT NIGHT YESTERDAY"

    Even if it´s correct, I would like to know if there´s

    another way in English to say that?

    Thanks a lot!

    Re: Late

    "at night" is OK, but it isn't necessary. And it's possible, even more efficient, to change "yesterday" to last night".

    Here are more:

    I got home (really) late, yesterday.
    I arrived home (really) late, last night.
    I was (really) late getting in last night.
    It was terribly late when I arrive home last night.
    It was a late night last night. I got home around 12:30 a.m.
