Basic room are only equip with ceiling fan”

I booked a basic room, its not mention in agoda it's only equip with fan. I though the cheapest room also come with air conditioning. I'm wrong. trusted with the same hotel i'll stay before the woodpecker lodge should mention about it only a room with fan. I'll ask to change room and paid another RM15 per night for air-conditioning room. Should know and notice this earlier, there re a lots of other hotel that better (cause we came with car) are available around Kuching that worth a dime to stay for that much. Everything else in the hotel were find, its equip for all backpackers, only this time i'm on work, not backpack. For backpack travelers, this hotel just nice for you guys, for others who rent a car in Kuching, you can find a lot more others hotel that better for you.

strategically located, rooms are clean and nice

I stayed for 2 nights in Woodpecker. It was a comfortable room with clean sheets and towels. Although the karaoke bar open till 2 am, I was staying at the top floor, the noise was bearable. The staffs are very helpful. Woodpecker are located in the center of Kuching town. Less than 5 minutes walk to famous local food such as kolo mee and Sarawak laksa and plenty of bars available. Riverfront is within walking distance.

Great location, excellent host, but slightly small”

Cleanliness, Friendly staff

I stayed in this Hotel as I need easy access to city center and the location is excellent. Kuching Waterfront is just a short walk away. The hotel itself is located above a karaoke pub and the insulation is not that great but it is no issue for me as I can sleep in most extreme noise. But maybe for the future, they might want to invest into better insulation. In terms of eating, there is a chinese restaurant just beside the hotel with fastfood such as KFC, Pizza Hut and McDonalds around the corner should anyone with fussy kids are wondering. The room is small (single) but clean with air conditioning and flat screen LCD tv. For anyone who doesnt mind the noisy condition, I would recommend this hotel but its certainly not for light sleepers.

Nice place, maybe the price could be a little bit lower but it’s ok. Comfo rtable bed,3 fans in dorm, clean bathroom (soap and towel included). The only thing,the WiFi is quite low in the room. But the best of all,Oliver,the host. That guy help me in everything, explaining me all about how to arrive to every place I talked to him and suggesting me places to go and the best options to do it. Always with a big smile. If I come back to Kuching, that I hope it,I’ll come back to Woodpeckers.

Helpful owners and stuff”

We enjoyed our short stay at Woodpecker Lodge before going to National park. It is in a good location as it's just walking distance to the Waterfront. Nearby there is a bus stop for the bus going to Bako National park. The room is clean and service is great. The owners and stuff are very helpful and polite. As cats owners ourselves we liked Fluffy and Ninja hanging around the reception area. Yes, you’re in a cat town. Far from home but feels as at home. We would like to stay here again.

wonderful experience”

I stayed for 4 nights at the Woodpecker Lodge. The room was as promised and I found the location to be perfect. It sits right at the end of the riverwalk and around the corner from the bus stop to Bako National Park, which was my primary purpose for coming to the area. The best part of my stay was the staff. I found them to be kind, professional and genuinely interested in what they do and the place they live. I was lucky enough to have a couple conversations with the owner who really helped me get the most out of my trip to Borneo.

Location, staff and close to transport

I spent 2 days in woodpecker lodge with 2 of my junior colleagues. Room is nice, clean and new. Place is very convenient. Staff is friendly and helpful. I definitely recommend it for a budget traveler who need privacy and nice place. I haven't had any problem due to Karaoke down stares. Only issue is the space inside room, which was not a problem for us.

Lovely hotel, perfect for the budget traveller!”

Clean, safe, friendly service, nice interior deco. all rooms as a window.

for the budget traveller, the room size is just nice. it's very clean. interior deco and arrangements give you a clean fresh feeling. service was excellent! as i had a back problem, staff took the trouble to look for a more suitable room for me. they even recommended a good and famous bone setter for me to consider. this is what i call going the extra mile. what's a plus point from other budget hotels is that all rooms has a window so you don't feel cramped up. beds are soft and comfy. location is good with many good eating places nearby as recommended in the town brochure. when you arrive, just don't be deceived by the exterior facade as you will be appeased when you are inside. if i ever go back to kuching on a budget, i would certainly go for this hotel.

Excellent boutique hotel for those on a budget”

Being located right in the town center of Kuching was the one thing that made us choose this hotel. It's relatively cheap price was an added bonus. Our room was cozy enough to sleep for the night.

I've been to Kuching many times and I have moved from luxurious hotels to budget hotels like Woodpecker Lodge. For it's price, you can't expect a huge room; just enough to sleep in after a tired day of exploring Kuching. It's WiFi ready so accessing the internet wasn't an issue. Sad thing though none of the couples and family rooms have windows facing the Sarawak River.

Very Basic Budget Hotel”

Clean room, nice location and friendly staff

This is a very basic budget hotel quite well located in Kuching city. For a not-so-touristy and not-so-affluent Kuching city, its room was surprisingly very small, if not smaller, compared to Hong Kong. The saving grace is its free wifi access in all the rooms and its cleanliness. The karaoke lounge one floor below can keep you awake past midnight if you are a light sleeper. It was okay for us in spite of it. Recommended if you are on a shoe string budget.

the place is pleasant, clean and relatively new. that is almost the first reason why i chose woodpecker and glad that it turns out as shown from picture, to my satisfaction. the lady boss is very friendly and helpful. and importantly the location is ideal to most destination being in the heart of the town at the waterfront. certainly worth the money paid. the only thing to watch out is that it has no lift although situated at 2nd and 3rd floor, hence it is best not to carry big or overweight suitcase.
