            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.

            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.

            I ended up not staying there because of last-minute changes, but I'm sure it's a great hostel!

            Best hide out”

            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.

            Overall sleeping in the homestay was quite cosy and comfortable because there's personal capsule for sleeping each for person unlike other homestay that offered with exposed bunks... Just regarding deposit of RM50.00 for cabinet, owner should inform earlier to the customer before check-in 👍👍

            + the location is superb a walking distance to the waterfront, also you can walk to the bus stop to bako park - the capsule was a bit dirty the paint and room sheets were old l, bathroom a bit small However the bathroom and toilet were separate so that is a win
