Very comfortable and clean. However, the dorm lockers are pathetic at best, bring your own padlock.


It was alright. Great location and facilities but the atmosphere was definitely lacking. Its like they planned on being busy but the crowds never came. Get the feeling all the staff want to do is push you onto overpriced tours rather than great a good hostel experience. The top deck bar area was really nice but completely empty. I got charged extra for checking out late even though my dorm room was completely empty.


I really enjoyed my time at Singgahsana, the staff are all really friendly and helpful. The bar was great to hang out even if the hostel is quiet. The location is eight near the waterfront and china town. The only downside is that in the dorm room at the front of the hostel it can be quiet noisy especially on a Saturday night when the locals sit down outside the food stall next door. They are there having a great time until very late/early morning! I would recommend this hostel to anyone

Good location, very clean other then the bathrooms, 2MYR for a towel, bar upstairs is great but quite humide (still really cool


Thought this was an amazing hostel! The owner was super friendly, the rooms clean and the rooftop bar was a great place to chill. Lots of info available for trips and in walking distance of many good restaurants


Really nice place to stay - decor lovely, staff friendly, good facilities all round.


Well I loved Kuching it was the best place in Malaysia for me and Singgahsana (vortex/Michelle/nice :) ) did not disappoint either. Personel in upstairs rooftopbar did their best to make u feel comfortable/happy. Met some great people there!!!! Breakfast is awesome overlooking the city. Its the place i'd love to comeback to and probably will.. soon... Hi Michelle! Hi Erin! ;)


We had a great time in Singgahsana Lodge. The travel agents downstairs is really helpful and the bar upstairs is good fun!


there is no charging port beside the bed
