The staff was very helpful and welcoming. Location is pretty good, 10-15 minute walk to wherever you need to go. Only downside was that the walls between the rooms are very thin. The people I the room beside me were talking all night and I could hear everything. Also, the remote for the a/c is at reception so the only option if you're feeling cold in the night is to turn off the unit. Make sure your temp is set so it's comfortable to sleep.

Location isn't too bad (because Kuching is small) but not ideal. One of the girls working at the desk was not particularly pleasant and didn't provide a great first impression. Overall the place is clean but I wouldn't stay here again. Nobody is here and there was also loud music from somewhere near by which was frustrating at night.

Extremely friendly and helpful staff, very clean and decent location. Next time I'm in Kuching, definitely will stay at lodge again.

The shared bathroom is simple. For me, there was not enough hanger. The thick, wooden hanger looks classy but I couldn't hang my toiletries bag there and at the end I dropped my bag and my stuff were all on the floor. The toilet was not working well and it did irritate me. Don't count on Wifi. I couldn't connect to the wifi at all. Poor signal even in the common area. Simple breakfast - toast and jam. Plus Point: The staff were extremely friendly and helpful.

Spent 4 days and 3 nights there; excellent location- close to the heart of it all. Variety of tours with return pickup from the hostel. Very friendly staff; shoutout to Rajes, Zul and the 3rd gentleman who's name seems to have escapedy mind. Did their utmost best to make my stay as fulfilling, enjoyable and comfortable as possible. Will stay here again!

It is a very well designed interiorly. The hotel ambiance is relaxing. The parking lot down stair is free of charge. Staffs are helpful and friendly. They will try their very best to accommodate your request. On the other hand, a bed bug issue arised during my stay. However, only a few bed bugs were detected. Guess that they were the few that escaped from the pest control procedure. The issue was resolved after switching to another room. Generally a pleasant stay.

It is quite hard to spot as the signage is not really visible, and from outside, you won't guess it is a hostel.However, most of the cab drivers know where this place is.It is close to the Waterfront and Padang Merdeka. he facility is adequate and clean.My only complain is the cleanliness in one of the 3rd floor bathroom.The toilet bowl lid has to be replaced as it is full of grimes already.The staff is really friendly.They already prepare city map with attractions to visit and best food to eat.
