Will stay here again next year Kuching Marathon

Very convenient as nice food easily found. The Staff is very friendly and the place is clean.
Staff is friendly, good WIFI reception, you can find lots of nice restaurants around the area, if you prefer local rice or famous Sarawak noodle, the food count is just next door!!

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.
Kok M. Solo travelers Malaysia, April 30, 2014
Simple and clean room.

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

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.
Ong S. Solo travelers Malaysia, December 15, 2013
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
Nurul S. Solo travelers Malaysia, October 14, 2013
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.
