A short stay to plan for Sarawak.
Location, staff assistance
The hostel is above a nightclub/karaoke lounge, enough said. Only use as a short stop over.

simple and affordable stay
decent environment, friendly and helpful staff, many local eating places within walking distance
Woodpecker lodge's location is fairy great for me. It's walking distance to the "cat statues", main bazaar, water front and some malls. It's really near the famous local cafe, chong choon that serve amazing food, great place for breakfast. Downstairs of the lodge is a bar which is quite noisy at night, however surprisingly we were not disturbed when we were in room. im not sure we were just lucky or they have good sound proof.

No satisfy
Cannot figure out any best thing about this hotel.
No satisfy due to the poor room condition, especially the ceiling of room need so renovation otherwise it look horrible. It has a narrow spaces bathroom for a families with young children traveler but if you are looking for the budget or backpacker hotel, this probably is the one you may consider.

friendly staff, location, view of the river from the bathroom
There was a karaoke bar beneath the hotel so was rather noisy in the evening. Whole environment did not have a "clean" feeling.

Good Value Budget Hotel
Value, Location, Staff
I enjoyed my stay here. Good value budget hotel. 26r taxi from airport and hotel arranged taxi back for same price. Staff very helpful. Ok internet connection but often stopped working. Tell staff and they will get it back on. Above nightclub so noisy till 2 am. Room design is bad with glazed glass wall to wc/shower. Ok for single occupancy. 3 flights of steps to the rooms so unsuitable for disabled. 5 minute walk to waterfront. Nearby English bar ' Cock & Bull ' has great food and free pool table. 24 hour burger joint around corner.

Nice hotel
The hotel is very near to waterfront, just working distance. Very easy to get local transport and food stall. Downstairs is karaoke lounge, but it's ok for me. The Hotel provide small room nice, clean and comfort but no breakfast provided. Overall nice hotel to stay for single or double travelers.
