Just Nice

City Central, near sightseeing and easy to find dine
Woodpecker Lodge is suitable for backpackers. Lots of restaurants nearby. It is located central of the city. It is too loud during the night because of the night club on the 1st floor and I don't recommend family with young children to stay in.

Reasonably priced hotel

Reasonable prices, free wifi
I paid only S$73 for 3 nights, so I won't complain about the size of the room which was 4m by 4m. Taking away 1 X 4m for the toilet and putting in a queen sized bed, there isn't much room to maneuver or put your stuff. Water flow was very unpredictable, changing from full to a trickle a few times during showers. A lounge/pub downstairs is open till late, so the singing may be irritating to a light sleeper. You may request a room on the 3rd flr as after closing the main door, the music is barely noticeable. The location is right beside the river, but at a point where there is almost nothing. A 10-15 minute walk will get you to the main waterfront area but I rather choose a place that is right in the middle next time.

clean but very noisy

clean, friendly staff, attentive staff
The room is clean, but the airconditioning is not working well, it took about an hour to finally cool the room a bit. There is no elevator. we are on third floor and there is a local Karaoke on first floor which open till early morning 2- 3 am . Sound proof is not good so we could not sleep well due to the noise from the karaoke

A cheap option, we chose it for this reason. We ar

It is cheap.
Our plane arrived late into Kuching so we decided that a budget hotel was worth it for the first night, because all we would be doing is sleeping. However it was very difficult to sleep with a very noisy bar downstairs. The room was very small as expected, it felt more like a bed with a wall around it rather than a room with a bed in it! The sheets seemed clean, but the floor and bathroom area was not, it clearly had not seen a mop or a broom for a long time! We have stayed in many budget, backpacker places before in Vietnam, India, Singapore and KL, but we have never stayed anywhere like this and we will not stay there again!

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.
