          Beautiful place, súper host.”

          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.

          Cute cats, weird bathroom ”

          The hostel itself was pretty good, and staff were helpful. The only weird thing is that the bathroom wall in the dorm is EXTREMELY close to the toilet so you don’t actually have any space for your legs when you sit down. Interesting design.... This led to me having to sit sideways on the toilet or use the bathroom near reception. Not a big deal but just found it funny. Also the dorm I stayed in didn’t have AC but it did have four fans.

          I love everything about this property!”

          The property is in a strategic location as it's just walking distance by the Waterfront, Main Bazaar and the Old Street. I was staying at the basic room and it has everything that I need with the attached bathroom and some space to get around in the room. They also provide extra electrical socket that was super helpful as I also had to do some work in-between my trip. The receptionist room is so cozy with Fluffy and Ninja hanging around that makes the lodge feel the sense of cat town. As a cat owner myself, it made me feel home in just a second. The staff was also super helpful from helping me to carry lots of stuff that I've brought for my travel (not the one to travel light indeed) to accommodating my need for laundry. The owner also suggested me some recommendations in terms of destination and how to reach there in Sarawak. It is super helpful that makes me want to go back again to plan another trip!

          Good location ”

          Located near Jalan Pandungan, this Lodge is a great place for a budget stay to explore the City Centre. It is also only about 5-10 minutes walk to the Waterfront Main Bazaar. The lodge has a computer for travellers who needs to do some quick planning & research for their trip. The only thing I wished that it could be better was if the en-suite bathroom is partitioned fully from the bedroom or it has some form of ventilation system of the room/bathroom.

          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.

          The only drawback is the fact that the stairway is narrow and the rooms are upstairs. Hard luck if you hv many things to carry! I had some trouble with the sliding bathroom door too which got stuck... I hurt my hand trying open it... but all in all, this place is a gem. Close enough to be near all The places that matter but nice and quiet all the same.

          Pros/Compliments: - 17min walk to waterfront via the riverside pathway. It's safe and you can take a boat ride (RM1/way) across the river. There, you can find halal food easily and shop for their famous layer cakes - Amenities within walking distance: 24 self service laundry, restaurants, local banks, massage parlour, 24h mamak - Staffs are friendly, place is clean Cons & suggestions: - The single room equipped with fan can be very warm in the afternoons. Installing a curtain would help reduce the heat, and make the room less bright in the mornings - There's a karaoke station closeby so it can be noisy evening onwards. Bring earplugs just incase

On the negative side, tv was not clear & with limited channels; water heater shower was not functioning.

          Overall it's a good place to stay and I'd recommend it for someone on a budget. It is located right in the middle of everything - it's a 5 minute walk to just about anything you want to do in Kuching. There is a karaoke bar downstairs which plays very loud music until late. You can hear the music at a tolerable level in the room - it's not bad and I didn't lose sleep over it but it is noticeable. The rooms are nothing fancy but have the basics and everything works. The wireless internet worked well enough for me to do skype calls and was reliable.
