      Great place”

      Fast WiFi, beer fridge, nice people... Good base to discover the surrounding national parks. Best way to get there is sharing an Uber/Grab with other guests. We always chose Pullman Hotel across the street as pick up an drop off. Inside Kuching everything is within easy walking distance. There is a laundry place nearby, it's 8 Ringgit for a warm wash an 5 Ringgit for 30min in the dryer. All machines take up to 14kg of laundry and work well. I can also recommend the massage place nearby (Lavender). The family that owns sunset homestay is very warm and welcoming, too. Really felt like home! If you find the AC too cold, just ask them for another blanket.

      It is good whether for short or long stay, their place is newly renovated, well maintained facilities and good hygiene. Easy access to the city with carpark nearby. The only minor problem was one of the bath towels provided was not clean. Most importantly, it is a nice place to stay with lower budget in Kuching.

      Best hostel in Kuching”

      I stayed in a couple of different hostels in Kuching and this is by far the best. The dorms provide a lot of privacy with side walls and curtains. The bathrooms are modern and clean. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful! They even lent me a day pack for my overnight stay in Bako National Park and drove me to the bus station. Thanks guys!

      Wow it is actually decent 'CAPSULE HOTEL'”

      Wow...i cannot actually believe the price tho(approx 5usd on that day). Before i going into the hotel, My expectation wasn't really high. Just something like full of double deck beds. But when I look into it it was actually so called 'Capsule Hotel.' Which i don't need to worry about the cracking sounds derived from upper bed neighbors. Also privacy is 100% guaranteed. And all the facilities are new with clean bathroom also. Highly recommended for those who seek a Hostel or Homestay or decent 'CAPSULE HOTEL'

      Cozy and best choice for backpackers ”

      As a hotelier, I would said it is first recommend for the backpacker or family trip. Just like a home, you can chat over here, cooking and infront of homestay is The hills. And next to homestay have 7-11, super convenient. Here also have bus for the trip. Just wait at the bus stop and pay RM1 and bring to the tour. Super relaxing and feel time became slow here. Just suddenly became you really enjoy your life. Can read the book over there. Just relax and chill. BTW in Local but first time in my life I explore my hometown in details. Proud to be Sarawakian and please stay home.

      Good working WiFi, selling beer and drinking water for cheap. It's a good base to reach the national parks and recover afterwards. Best way to get there is sharing an Uber/Grab with other guests, our pickup was Pullmann Hotel. In the city shops, restaurants and sights are in walking distance. Was lucky enough to stay here while the food festival was on which was a great spot for dinner. The couple that owns the place is very friendly and helpful and share all the things that they know if you ask If A/C should be too cold for you, just ask for an additional blanket :)

      Receptionist (just one guy. I think its a family business) was extremely friendly and helpful. The place itself is small but well maintained for a hostel. Perhaps some more effort in cleanliness would have been appreciated. However, its situated in an ideal location; lots of food options nearby, and its a stones throw from waterfront. Really a great deal!

      I stayed here after checking out from Tune (biz travel) this place feels homely. though the common space is located outside on the walkway. But I have nothing to complain as I truly feels like living in a student residence. I met Naz the receptionist. and we chatted a lot about travel and life in guesthouse. She is truly dedicated staff and the family who runs this business is lucky to have her. There are few rooms upstairs that she even showed it to me even though it is fully booked at that time (thats a very good marketing strategy)- promoting your other place. Good job NAz.I would hire you myself if i run a hostel. anyway I hope you learn a lot from this good place and do your startup. This place serve coffee and tea.
