I stayed in dorm room... the room not busy which was good in a way.. good wifi... staffs are well informative and friendly. hotel at a strategic location. Walking distance to mall, bus stops, restaurants, stalls and bars.

Only problem would be they do not clean the room daily unless asked to do so. Also no bath towel or floor mat

Receptionist with long hair is amazing!
We were so impressed with how genuinely helpful the receptionist was- he helped us to organise a trip to Belaga through his own contacts. He really made our time here special! Real legend! Hostel vibe perfect for quick stopovers. They organise tours etc also

Great hostel
the main point of this hostel is the location. just a step away from the plaza merdeka and kuching waterfront. located in Carpenter Street near the chinese gate and next to local foodcourt. convinience store is aslo just across the hostel. the hostel itself is pretty convinient. i took the single room and for me its quite spacious and clean. they gave you blanket and towel for shower. clean bathroom and toilet. the staf also friendly specially the uncle. one of the nicest uncle i ever met in malaysia. and of course it cheap! i'll be back for sure.

Budget hotel
Located very near to Kuching waterfront. Receptionist is very friendly, they guide&suggest us how to one destination in small budget. At the same you can only walk to Kuching waterfront without using transport as location as very near.

My sincere opinion. It's great!
Firstly, I would like to comment about the staff. They're nice and friendly person. Helpful. Smile most of the time. The important is, they're nice person. And of course, most of them are fluent in English. I love the shower amneities. The soap/shampoo is not the regular cheap like product that make your hair freeze, like the usual in any other hotel. This one here is different, it's just good. Shows that they really do care about their guests. The water heater in shower room and air conditioner inside the room works splendidly as they were supposed to. The toilet is good, mostly clean all the time. There's just one thing, the mattress is a bit soft, which is not too comfortable at first (but this is in my expectation, since it is a budget hotel after all). But, it doesn't mean that you are not able to sleep on it. Since I tours around town a lot, then it is not a big problem to me, as I only use it when I wish to sleep. They have small kitchen there, it is comfortable. Free water to drinks, hot water for instant cup noodles, and any other basic thing like cup and such. They always have bread available to be eaten if we want to, and toaster to make it more delicious. Well, I am satisfied with my stay there. For adventurer, this might be one of the best deal you can have. :-) oh yes..they offered free wifi as well. Never use it though as I have my own, but I believe that the speed is great! :-D

Friendliest and most helpful staff ever
We only stayed in this hostel for one night in the mixed dorm. Beds were comfortable, showers clean and hot, and toast for breakfast. Our room unfortunately backed on to the reception though, so we heard EVERY sound from people walking through. The room unfortunately doesn't have a window either but the A/C works a treat! There were however funkier places close by for the same price. Location is perfect on Carpenter St, next door to a great food hall, bars and the river. The staff at the front desk were the highlight. You can ask them any questions about nearby attractions, how to get there independently and cheaply on your own.
