    Nice host. Clean rooms. Great location.”

    It's comfortable and lovely place to stay. The location is really strategic, lies in the heart of Kuching. It is easy to stroll around, lots of colonial buildings to view. There are bistros, cafe, souvenirs and antique shops nearby. It takes only 6 minutes walk to Sarawak Museum and less than 1 minute walk to textile museum and Plaza Merdeka.

    location

    The room is small but still comfortable. Like other travelers complained in their review, you can probably heard what going on in the whole guest house. Bad luck for me as I got some one talking loud stayed next door, talking until 11pm until I finally knock on his door to ask him to shut up. Else this will be a great guest house for its location right in the Carpenter street near the River Front area.

    "Ghosthouse"”

    Nice location in the middle of Chinatown (Carpenter street, clean, cheap

    Batu bata is a clean and well located guesthouse in Kuching city. However, we had to wait for quite a long time at the door waiting for someone to open the door and check in (it is not possible to enter the guesthouse without a card or a code...). And no one was here when we checked out, which was an issue to get back our 50rm caution for the key. Don't know if we were unlucky or if it's their casual way of managing the place... So to put it in a nutshell, the place is really well located, affordable, but don't expect any kind of services.

    Clean new gueshouse in Chinatown”

    location, cleanness, staff

    Located across the street from a superb food court enables one to eat even when it rains hard. Beds are clean and comfortable. There are few rooms, so it's quiet and not crowded at all. The only minor problem were thin walls. I could hear my neighbor talk on the phone and watch videos on the computer.

    Small room and inaccurate information”

    Location

    1) The information on their website is inaccurate example the facilities offered at each room was wrongly stated (e.g., Tv, table etc), none was offered in the room I booked -which were clearly stated as part of the facilities offered. 2) And the website didn't mentioned one has to climb stairs to get to the guesthouse. This might caused a lot of problem for guests who are elderly or handicapped. 3) Plus the main entrance to the guesthouse was just a typical small room door beside the 7-Eleven. When I tried to check-in, no one answer the bell, we even had to ask the 7-Eleven workers to help us call the caretaker as no one answer the bell. At last after 10 minutes, finally someone opened the door.

The guesthouse is clean, comfortable, with the basic amenities with many nearby restaurants and pubs to quench your thirst and cravings for local and western delicacies.
