        The fun thing about hostels are the people you meet. This hostel attracts interesting people from around the world and the staff go out of their way to make you feel welcome and assist in travel or local advice. I whole heartedly recommend this hostel to any budget traveler.

        A good place to stay!”

        Room - It was better than i expected, but would be better if they provided the plug next to every bed so we can charge while using it. Facilities - I got what i needed :) Breakfast - Basic breakfast like bread & butter, tea, coffee.. who doesnt like free breakfast? ;D Bar - amazingly cheap! Plus i got 1 free shot of tuak from Shida, the owner , and i love it! Common area - they have pool table, darts and also a reading area. Staffs - Sweet, friendly, and treat you like a friend. I booked for 2 nights but I stayed only for 1 nite (too bad) just because I went to different part of Sarawak unplanned and stayed in the hotel nearby as it was already dark and i was alone to drive back to the city. Funny part was, I forgot that I supposed to check out on the next day but i totally forgot until around 3pm and i quickly gv Ben a call, and he was like okay and told me no need to rush. Thanks Ben! Anyway, its a good cheap place to stay in Kuching, worth every penny!

        Very nice hostel! Friendly and helpful staff, social vibe and a nice communal area with a Tv-room, pingpong table and pool table. Dorms are basic but clean and the beds are comfortable. Breakfast consisting of toast, jam, tea and coffee is included. We stayed overnight in Bako national park and we were able to store our luggage in the reception while we were away, free off charge. Would definitely recommend!

        OK hostel, you can sleep and there is free breakfast. However, not that great atmosphere. After this hostel I stayed in 2 other hostels as well, which were both as cheap but better worth your money.

        I ended up here for 6 nights. The hostel was clean. I was in the 10 bed dorm but had enough space and felt secure with locked doors and safes provided. Staff were super helpful and kind. Other travelers here were all relaxed and didn't mind to have a beer but respectful / quiet when appropriate. Free breakfast and water refills bonus! Good location to walk around Kuching city

        Nice guesthouse and good vibes”

        We stayed a week in Kuching. Plenty of things to do in the area, with great advice from the staff to do it by your own or they can also arrange tours. The location is good, ten minutes walk from the waterfront and city center and easy access to everything: shops, bars, restaurants... We had a private room, the room itself is simple but ok (maybe add something to hang clothes, and darker curtains for people who wants to sleep longer in the morning...) and aircon works well. But: bring your earplugs as you can hear pretty much everything that happens next door and outside (works, music in bars, people shouting, animals...), and the shared bathroom is not very convenient as it is very small with shower and toilets (has hot water though). The common area is nice and people working there or hanging around are always smiling and willing to help. I recommend, even if some improvements could be made to make it even better.

        Lovely guesthouse, great location ”

        Well located guesthouse. We really enjoyed the communal space, with its DVD player and excellent selection of DVDs both movies and series. The double room was spacious and the aircon worked really well. Facing the street they are a little susceptible to noise; there was a disco somewhere till the early morning we was audible. Otherwise it was a comfortable stay. For the price it was good value for money, the couple of simple things I thought could be improved on were that the towels stank, a really musky smell, not something you'd want to dry yourself with. The second was the check in. When I checked in I was told that I'd not paid for my room so I paid again, but then Agoda also took the payment, and it was a hassle getting it back from Agoda. So communication between the guesthouse and Agoda needs to be improved. Munch Cafe round the corner is brilliant if you fancy bread, they usually have a few different varieties to choose from.

        Location was good. Host's attitude is good. The only 2 concerns I had were (1) I had to make further payment of a small amount (I think is less than 20 rm) when I thought I have made the full payment via Agoda; and (2) hard to find toilet papers - but well I could have walk down to level 2 to ask.

        Great hostel run by a knowledgeable and friendly staff mix of ex-pats and locals. Dorms are basic but totally fine with lockers and air con, the rainforest showers are a nice surprise! The owner Ben is a stand-up guy and very knowledgeable about Kuching and Sarawak and able to point you in the right direction for tours or day-trips, food etc. Sam who runs the bar (6myr for a tiger) has good chat and knows a lot about good/cheap places to eat and drink locally. Communal area is cool with a bar and TV, and easy to meet people. Good WiFi everywhere in the place and secure keycard access. Overall had a great stay and would stay here again.
