    Backpacker Stay is a very convenient place to stay. It scores a full mark on it's cleanliness. Very friendly staffs. Have security cameras all around for safety. Breakfast is provided. Very near to Kuching Waterfront, shopping malls, and other tourist attractions. Shower room is very clean and comfortable. The only negative thing is the toilet where tap water is not available, only tissue is provided.

    Most Durian friendly accommodation!!!”

    Backpacker Stay had a very lovely staff, always smile when we came and went and always helpful to us. They were so kind to allow my fiancé and I to bring upwards to 6 durian into our room at a time. We know this was extreme but they allowed it anyway. Maybe they will change their durian policy after our stay there as most westerners do not have an interest in this odorous fruit. Luckily for them only a few other guest came and went during our visit to Kuching. We probably caught them off guard. Ha. And they were humble so not wanting to disappoint us. The stay is located right in the heart of City Center with easy access to most everything one would need. The large eatery next door stays open late and opens early so be prepared for the sound of dishes stacking. The lockers were big and spacious, we could easily fit all of our valuables onto them. The water was also warm and comfortable. The wifi signal was also dependable. I wish this establishment all the best and success in their future.

    Very Helpful +Friendly Staff-- so I returned !”

    Helpful STAFF, COMFORTABLE TWIN BED, Great LOCATION !

    This was a quick return stay, before flying onward to KL... this time I chose the FEMALE DORM: it was empty, no others were booked, the twin bed is more comfortable than the over-soft double bed! Even though the room is next to the common eating area, it was quieter than the upstairs rooms, which recv noise from the next-door Chinese Food Court, which starts food prep btwn 3-4AM.... and can frequently be heard in the upstairs rooms. During my first stay, there was peanut butter available: this time, there wasn't any--and the night staff-person promised he would buy some PNB the next morning, before breakfast-- and it was there! Thank You! The areas are kept clean. However, the two broken shower-water-heaters were still broken, a month later... and the third shower (on the first floor) was still working quite well, with strong, HOT water -- helpful for shaving, ha ha ha. The location of Backpacker Stay is GREAT for the Cinema (2 wiin easy walking distance!), for Museums, the Natl Park+Tourist Info offices, the PO, and the newest shopping mall, Merdeka Plaza, as well as the Waterfront and the market streets of Jalan India and Main Bazaar. I recommend Backpacker Stay for fellow Budget Travellers to Kuching.

    Backpacker stay is clean and what you paid is worth.It has 3 toilets and 3 bathrooms with hot showers but the toilet got no water tap for you to wash...so they provided toilet papers.Maybe they should renovate their inn because when raining,water leakage happens!If not raining,overall it has no drawback at all! I will stay there if i visit kuching again!

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.

Waterfront kuching nearby 5. Staff was friendly and helpful 6. Room was okey,air conditioner works perfectly ! 7. Shared bathroom / shower was okey. Only, i hope that : 1. Shared toilet should be kept clean 2. Breakfast?? My package include but i did not get any 3. Everyday should have people to change bed sheet. The blanket a bit smelly. 4. Should have laundry. I stayed 5 days 4 night there,my day was wonderful. This place is okey for people who budgeting. Eventhough surronded by pub nearby but i did not bother by it.

They help us in finding good food and assist me on how to get around. Toilet is most of the time clean. It gives u basic needs, the room that we got was quite spacious which i'm satisfied with. Just the toilet has no water hose, which i so wish they had so tht i don't have to need to gather water when i need it...but the toilet is clean. Overall i'm satisfied with my stay, n will consider to stay there again in the future.

    We had a great 3 nights stay here. the staffs are very helpful and friendly, the hostel is always tip top clean. breakfast is basic, bread slice with jam, free flow of coffee n tea the whole day. beer is sold at a reasonable price too. there's a 7 eleven across the street which is awesome when all shops closes very early in that area. the only problem might be the smell of cockroaches at the pantry area, maybe due to it's an old building and next to a 20hr foodcourt. other than than i'm very happy with this place. no cockroaches seen though.

    location, price, clean

    Backpacker Stay is a Clean and Friendly place to stay. The reason I left is bcz the bed was too soft. The staff are quite friendly and helpful-- he told me all the beds are soft, and even gave me suggestions of other places to look ! "Breakfast" is typical for Malaysia: bread (toast), margarine, jam, tea, and instant coffee. The rooms are clean, quite small, and basic. Each floor has two toilets. Three showers are on the first floor, to the side of the communal kitchen. When I was there, yesterday, only one shower gave HOT water-- however the cleaning person I asked did not speak English, and she was asking the desk person... perhaps all three do give hot water, as all three do have a heater (the plugs were turned on...??). **** You must 'rent' a towel for use. The neighborhood is safe for walking--just use common sense. It is located next to and across from two Food Courts, a 24hr 7-11, cafes, bars, restaurants, a 5 min walk from the most modern mall, and a 10 min walk from a cinema. The Tourist Information and Riverfront are 5 mins walk. It is located in Old Chinatown. I recommend Backpacker Stay for other budget travellers.

    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.

    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.

    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

    Nice atmosphere, great location in Old Chinatown”

    Friendly staff, clean rooms, clean showers/toilets

    Pretty good, this place is great value for money, situated right in the middle of old chinatown. Possible only real downside was the wooden floors in the hallway and very noisy guests (the wall were pretty thin), but not the fault of the staff (although some QUIET PLEASE signs would go a long way). Also the chinese market restaurant is just next door which can be noisy, but worth it for a clean place to stay. It's also a bonus having 3 toilets that always had loo paper fully stocked (something you learn not to take for granted when travelling in Borneo). The staff were always happy to arrange tours and transport for you.

    Standard backpackers hostel, would stay again.”

    Location, staff, value for money

    If you've been to a backpackers hostel before, you know what to expect. We had a private double bedroom with air con, very small room (just big enough to fit the bed in!) but it's what we were expecting for £8/night, and the bed was comfortable. Great location, very friendly staff who allowed me to use their reception computer to print my boarding pass. Would definitely stay again.

    It was a value for money, clean and nice stay.”

    3 minutes walk to the newest mall in town, Local food all around. Bright and airy.

    It was a nice and easy stay. Very close to the local attractions, smack in the middle of town. For local food you will be spoilt for choices. Just keep walking in any direction. There is also a great western/italian/fusion cafe called "Magna Carta". Food there is GREAT! The hostel itself is bright and airy. We took a mix dorm as our group was mix. Even though it was a shared bathroom, it was clean and always available. There were no waiting time. If you're looking to make new friends, this the place for you because the people are friendly, helpful and most of all, come from all walks of life.
