Comfortable Stay

Easy access, quiet and calming
Our second time here and it's definitely a comfortable stay. Place is quiet and calming. Room is clean and just cozy enough for backpackers. There is a kitchen where you can prepare your own drink or make light breakfast. They do provide coffee, tea and bread.

Enjoyable trip!

Reasonable price, comfortable staying, friendly staff
It was great! The accommodation is better than what I expect, with the reasonable price. It is clean and comfortable, and you feel ease to stay there together with the others. The hotel is centrally located, but if you are driving, it would be hard to get a parking there.

Simple and clean room.

Budget and centrally located hostel
The single room is quite small but clean. The bad point is the staircase.

Helpful staffs, Best location

Staff, Location, Comfortable
It's pretty good, We have 9 person late flight arrive at Midnight. We concern about check in process & neighbor disturb, but They still have standby staff & help to room arrangement. 2 staffs can help everything such as souvenir, call taxi, co with agent service, good restaurant. Best location, close to convenient store & waterfront, food hawker close in left side. Some trouble from toilet not so good from flushing system & my room have water drop from top. But overall is very nice

Value for money

location, cheap, friendly staff
My 2nd stay in this hostel and would come again :) its just the sharing toilet has no water source (tissues only) so you have to carry the water from the bathroom. Anyway its a backpacking hostel so bear with it.

Good and simple.

nice facilities, comfortable bed and simple room
At the center of the city of Kuching. Location near the old town street. Check in and check out easily. Got a lot of food around. Can visit a temple opposite there. But, it will be noisy at night until midnight

comfortable room and friendly staff

people,clean environment,next to the delicious local food stalls
I enjoyed very much there. The host treat us like friends and easy to get the tourism information. Near to museum and enjoy a lot of local food that just located beside the stay.

Standard backpackers hostel

Perfect location, very friendly staff, competitive rates.
Backpackers stay on Carpenter Street was easy to get to from the airport by taxi (around 20RM), in absolutely perfect location located near (but not on) the waterfront, close to many bus hubs, near the tourist information centre, and with a food court right next door. This (Chinese) food court was however a bit loud in the evening, although it didn't stop me sleeping. If you've been to a backpackers hostel before, you know what to expect. The staff were very friendly, allowing me to print my airport boarding pass off on their reception desk computer. Would definitely stay again.

Just ok.

Comfortable, Cheap, Good Location
I was alone in the 6-bed room during my trip. The room was clean, aircond fully functioning, and fast wifi connection. Friendly staff too. However, it could get quite noisy during the nights. I was staying in female dorm, and have to share the bathroom with others. However, the location is very good. Its near Padang Merdeka and Plaza Merdeka Mall. Its also within walking distance to Kuching Waterfront and museums. Recomendables.
