Centrally located and very good value”

Location, Value, Comfortable

If you are fine with sharing bathroom with others, then dont bother looking at other hotels and inns that are between RM50 and RM90 in Miri. This hostel will beat them in terms of cleanliness, facilities, location and staff friendliness hands down! They even provide basic breakfast, which is a nice touch. Just one thing though. My room did not have hooks for me to hang my clothes. Please put them in all your rooms.

Convenience in all angles”

Price, Location, Staff

The place is just perfect for my travel. It is just across the best mall in Miri. The place is surrounded with a lot of food and dining options. The place is clean and well maintained. The room is nice and comfortable. The staff are friendly and helpful but I felt more at home and comfortable with the 3 Filipino staff. They are even speaking the same dialect/sub-language as mine. They were able to suggest some things that we should do in Miri.

Meant to stay in Miri for only a couple of days, but found a lot more to do, and it was made that much easier in the comfort of My Homestay. It was almost brand new, and it looks to have a great amount of promise and potential. Highly recommended for any type of traveler!

The BEST Hotel for Backpackers in Miri”

attentive and friendly FIlipino staff, along the street lined with local restaurants, can communicate effectively in English

I didn't expect a Filipina to be behind the reception when I arrived. But when she told me she is from the Philippines, I quickly shifted to speaking Tagalog instead of English. Although overcoming language barriers definitely give my travels another flavor, I was glad that I didn't have to do it so much during my stay in Miri. It's easy to get recommendations and suggestions on great places to eat, what foods to try, places to see, and how to get there. Surprisingly, Filipinos also know great tips. I don't think they won't mind sharing to other non-Filipinos. I will DEFINITELY book another night's stay here when I get back from Bandar Seri Begawan. There are many reasons why this hotel is great for the budget traveler: (1) proximity to great local eateries, (2) proximity to a shopping mall and supermarket, (3) centrally located, (4) nightlife nearby hotel, (5) the friendly and attentive staff, and (6) clean toilets and shower area!

Good hostel in Miri”

Location, staff performance, nice showers

It was easy to get everywhere from my homestay as it was just opposite imperial mall. The staff were lovely, my locker was broken so they moved me to a new room. One of the staff even drove me to the bus depot where I caught a bus to Lampir Hills National Park for the day. The showers were in separate cubicles to the toilets - something you don't find at every hostel. Highly reccommend.

Cheap, Clean & Great Location

The room is small but is more than enough for short trip stay. The shared toilet and bathroom was clean. The staffs are friendly and helpful. They provide breakfast but we did not take the breakfast at the Homestay because we want to try some local foods. The location is great. There are Boulevard supermarket and Imperial Mall just opposite of the Homestay.

As per the room, the size, the bed and sheets are good, but as we entered the room, it smells like cigar, we didnt know that they have those kinds of room since there isnt any option so we didnt bother anyway.

Slightly pricey but will come again”

Location, WiFi, Water dispenser provided

I've stayed in 3 types of rooms namely double decker, queen and superior queen. Upon check-in a deposit of RM50 is required and will be refunded during check-out. Here's what I have to say: i. Double decker room - small room and air-conditioner was not working well. ii. Queen room - looks more comfortable and larger than double decker room. Air-conditioner was working better than double decker room's. iii. Superior Queen room - most comfortable. Air-cond was fully functioning and quiet than the other two rooms. Has own bathroom complete with a hair dryer, towels, body shampoo. However the tv could have been viewable if there were more channels. iv. Staff - The morning shift lady was friendly and attentive to my needs but the night shift staff was okay. On my first night of stay, they were restless with my questions. Later on they were having fun with slightly loud music and chatting away, they could have disturbed nearby guests. On other days they were doing just fine, no troubles at all. v. WiFi - The internet was down on some days. vi. Shower - Yes, I could not agree enough! The shower was great and water pressure is sufficient. vii. Location - good restaurant downstairs, just opposite Permaisuri Imperial City Mall, less than 10 min walk to Meritz Hotel (Bintang Mega Mall).

Great Choice”

I ended up having the female dorm room (2 persons) all to myself, which was awesome. The mattress isn't completely comfortable for someone that sleeps on their side, but it's manageable. The floors in the hostel were always cleaned, probably some of the cleanest I've ever encountered in my hostel journey. The hostel is located in the center and just across the way from the mall, POS and lots of delicious restaurants. If i'm every back in Miri, I would definitely plan to stay here again.

Cheap and average place in Miri”

Rooms are very small, stuff spends most of the time watching TV or smoking on a balcony. If you are just looking for a cheap place to stay in Miri, that it located in the center of the town and is easily bookable online - this is your choice. Otherwise, please dig deeper. We've stayed in a small double room for one night only, as found a better place for the same price not far away.

Very good value hostel”

It's 1st time I am staying in a dormitory with another person in a double decker bed. Location excellent as it is just opposite a big shopping center and a taxi stand . Very convenient with food just at the door step. Good wifi in the room , strong aircon and very clean common toilet and bathroom. Staff helpful and courteous. Only setback is although there are 2 lockers tucked underneath the double decker bed but don't understand why the hostel do not allow the guest to access to it . I have to carry my valuable things along with me when I go to the washroom as I do not know whom I shared my room with ! Very good also that hostel provide airport transfer for a fee as there is no airport bus to city ! Strongly recommended to stay !

Clean bathroom/toilet, very strategic”

perfect location, cleanliness, value for money

I only stayed for 2 nites, but it was pleasant, except they should put a mirror in the room. I'd surely would stay here again, since the place is strategically located in the city centre, but U should request for a room in the middle as it's less noisy. Mine was a queen bed single room facing the main road which can be a lil noisy at times. Nevertheless, Permaisuri Imperial City Mall & Imperial Mall/Hotel are right opposite the guesthouse..a walk less than 10 mins away and u'll have the famous bar where the expats hangout, Ming Cafe..downstairs of the guesthouse there 2 malay coffeeshops but the food were not good & expensive. Recommended is Tasty Point, a chinese restaurant offering local dishes in a comfy aircond room..food is great..the area has many bars/karaoke/eateries if u are willing to walk further..I particularly loved the shared bathroom/toilet. They were very clean but I was a little disappointed as there was no mirror in the shower cubicle, only at the sink outside the shower cubicle

Great Budget Hostel for Short Layout”

Overall very comfortable and homely set up. It has the basic of everything you need and is nearby to restaurant and shops so you can generally get what you need. Not sure if it's close to other attractions as I was just here for a 1 night layover but perfect if you plan to stop through Miri for 1-2 days. Room and toilet is clean but it's hostel style accommodation therefore don't expect 5* facilities. Definitely a good value for what you pay for.
