The Lavender Lodge met expectations, nothing amazing but no disappointments. Decent internet and helpful staff.


Everything was great! Comfy beds, clean rooms and bathrooms, hot water, Nice breakfast (included) and very friendly staff!


The hotel is very clean and the staff are extremely helpful and welcoming. Great poster of a proboscis monkey with a boner in the hallway. Light breakfast - white toast and a bit of watermelon - but that seems to be the case everywhere in Sarawak and Sabah.


Really nice, clean and respectable hostel. I was a female travelling alone and I stayed in a 6 person female dorm and felt completly safe and secure and the best part was it was seriously cheap! A couple of people who have written reviews for this Hostel complained that the staff were rude but I truly believe that this was a fault of the person staying and not the staff as they were perfectly lovely. The only thing I would say is this is not a party hostel so if thats what you want go elsewhere!
