            if you plan to join any of those running event in Miri, this place is conveniently located amongst those events but be ready to climb up to 3rd floor. food centre are accessible nearby up to 3am. pedicure, manicure and foot massage after a long walk or run very closeby. we like the WS reflexology just behind the place.

            Manageable”

            Staff would rarely say hi when I walked by or acknowledge me at all (though the girl in the morning seemed nice). Generally, cause there were so few guests during the week, the staff seemed super bored. I can't blame them! But... They used the (small) lobby/living area to constantly watch TV, lay flat on the sofa or play loud videos on their laptop. That means that guests can't use that area, so I was resorted to the outside terrace (no AC and little wifi). Kitchen is super dirty (old dirt), and no, a hotel can't hide behind the fact previous guest didn't clean up well. Staff literally told me nothing upon check-in, just gave me keys. Took me two days to find out they had a kitchen, free water and a rooftop for laundry hidden. Huge holes in linens, but they looked clean. Bathrooms not cleaned well, but quite big. PROS: OK price, strong AC, dorm bigger than in picture. It's fine for a quick, basic stay

            Average stay”

            I stayed here for a few days, the location is excellent and you can easily walk to most of the attractions. There’s a great restaurant downstairs serving lovely food and the Imperial Mall opposite, with a good court and coffee shops. The hotel was very clean but staff seemed disinterested and usually just sitting around chatting. Reception could be quite crowded at times, with people standing around talking. Not sure if they were staff or locals but made me feel uncomfortable at times. I didn’t use any of the amenities because of this and didn’t feel like I could ask where I should go etc. (Wasn’t told on arrival about breakfast etc). Internet connection wasn’t the best.

            Location & Price

            MHS is situated at the central of MYY. You know Permaisuri Mall is just adjacent to Permaisuri mall. The location cannot get better from this. Service is tip top. Of all the dorm I had stayed in Penang, Melaka, KK and Sandakan. I grade MHS the best. Location is good, price is appropriate and the breakfast self service is awesome. You can see that there are tubs of Lady Choice spread ready to be eaten by the hungry customers =) They also offer car rental, transport to Airport (RM25) and travel package. Final hat tip, if you are adventurous enough, just rent a car and drive to BSB =) Border closed at 12am and remember to fill in petrol full in MYY. The hardest part will be to learn how to identify the car engine no so to be filled at the Brunei temporary car card =) Kel

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.

            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

            I went back to MyHomestay again! This place is generally wonderful because you can get to meet people so fantastic like those who have traveled all over and can speak of these ideas and thoughts they have learned in their travels. Also, they can do cross comparison of famous landmarks, like those in Siem Reap, in the Yucatan Peninsula, in Bagan, and in Java, and how they are all amazingly have similarities that surprise one. The hotel also has information about tours, bicycle rentals, motorbike rentals, and car rentals. They also have information about how to get to other cities in the island of Borneo. Again, the staff who are mostly Filipino really have helped me in this trip. They are especially helpful in giving recommendations on places best to eat at, hang out, drink, and chill! Even if you're a foreigner (non-Filipino), they will open up to you easily and give recommendations on whatever you need and ask for.

            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!

            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).

            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.
