Thank you for your kind review. We are sorry that one of our guest makes noise at night. We are looking forward to it. Have a nice day. See you in the future!
Great value hostel”
Price is same as shared dorm but gives you a private room with bathroom. Rooms are really small and has no window so it's certainly no hotel but good compared to bunkbeds. Staff where really friendly and location is great in old Chinatown close to some bars but on a quiet street. Please note that Kuching also has some great value hotels for a bit more.
Thank you for your kind review. We appreciate it a lot. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay with us. We want our guest in house to always treat this guesthouse as a home. Hope you enjoyed Kuching in the past few days. Have a safe journey and will see you in the future.
Jewels Of Borneo Guesthouse Kuching
All the past great reviews cannot be viewed as true”
This place is almost a dive and I honestly cannot believe where all the great reviews were coming from. Anyways, mine is honest truth, I stayed three days in a standard double room( room no.2 ), the most expensive one that they offer, 15 sq meter one with lots of disappointments. Mosquitoes are all over the room and I had to spray twice a day to keep it to a minimum.
I stayed three days and the room was never cleaned for even once. Housekeeper is more than rough, would not answer back when I greeted her in the morning. Gave me a dirty face when I asked for a clean towel. Big attitude problems. Floors have big cracks on it and not only the noise coming from the reception is loud but that is where the mosquitoes are coming from.
Most reception staff smoke outside the front door during their duties while watching their hand phone and pay no attention to service. Only perhaps Female young manager is decent.
Anyways, this place is the worst hostel I have stayed at for the longest time. My past excellent review of other hostels can prove that I am not prejudiced.
They cannot pay me enough to stay there for one more time!
Pretty stiff cancellation policy too compared to other more decent ones !
Thank you for your kind review. First of all, it is very common that mosquitoes is everywhere where i do not have idea where they come from. We have already call pest control to actually deal with mosquitoes but i still do not know where they come from. Second, we have put up the notice in all the rooms saying that housekeeping is done every 3 days. We do not want our staff to clean our guest room without asking permission because if there is loss or damage in the property guest's room, Jewels Of Borneo will not responsible for that. This is why we want our guest to tell our staff if they need housekeeping. We want all of our guest to treat this guesthouse as a home. Our management will improve our staff as they might not paying attention sometimes. We are working on it right now. Sorry for all the inconvenience. I hope that you have a wonderful say and see you in the future.

the small room was very small，
just a bit more space around the queen size bed，good enough for single night stay for 2 person without big luggage. It was good that with a cheap room there was private bathroom in the room，although it was very small.
Thank you for your kind review. Glad that you enjoyed your stay with us. We appreciate it a lot. Have a nice day. Will se you in the future.
Good service from them !
Thank you so much
Great place, excellent value for money”
We have been travelling across Asia for 6 months and this is the best value for money room so far. Aircon, our own bathroom, towels included, TV, great WiFi, big bed, central location and lovely staff. The room was larger than in the photo - plenty of space for a big bag (we booked the small double). It was clean and neutrally decorated.
The only negative is that the Agoda listing lists a laundry service which they do not offer (they don't have washing machines, nor do they send it elsewhere for you).
Hi Bethany, it is great to hear your positive reviews. We are glad to hear you satisfied with your room. Actually, we upgraded your room due to the availability of small double rooms are pack. Our management would like to say a big Thank You to you guys that enjoyed your stay with us as well as Kuching. May your journey goes well. Have a nice day. Will see you in the future!
Thank you for the kind review. We appreciate it a lot. We hope that you enjoyed your stay as well as Kuching. May your journey goes well. Will see you in the future.

Thank you so much for the kind review.
Great budget option”
Fantastic location (with some outstanding food options at the end of the road), really friendly staff. The small double room is small, so wouldn't be suitable for anyone with suitcases, but exactly as advertised so we weren't disappointed at all. Hope to stay again!
Thank you for the kind review Emma. Really appreciate it. First of all, i am glad that you enjoyed your stay as well as Kuching. Our location is perfect for everyone who loves to stroll around the city or further. Hope the room doesn't disappoint you guys at all. Will see you in the future.
