    John, the owner, is very helpful. If he suggests you do something, do it! Beds are private, common room is intimate and easy to meet people in. Nice vibe

    John went above and beyond to make our stay what we wanted. He was very enthusiastic and eager to help. He went to go and get me some Thai oil for my insect bites and let us get a parcel delivered to the hostel. The location is good and the pods are great for a good nights sleep. Some of the best hostel beds we’ve had so far. The communal area lacks windows so is a little dark. The rooms for sleeping are well air conditioned at night. Great value.

    Great hostel. Comfy clean beds with light, shelf and plug. Lockers. Was pretty quiet when we were there but met nice guests. John the owner is quite chilled and lets you get on with it. By the time we left could have done with a bit of house keeping.

    Good hostel, one of the few good options in Kuching. Great location as tou can walk from the hostel to almost all the main landmarks worth visiting. The staff (namely John) is very welcoming and was great at giving suggestions about things to do and go to.

    We stayed during low season so there weren’t many other people around. However the rooms were clean, beds were comfy and had a curtain and there were lockers for our things. Great location near the bus stop for the bus to Bako National Park and near the waterfront. John, the owner, was so lovely and couldn’t have helped us more. He was friendly and answered all our questions. He even drove us to what he recommended as the best place for Layer Cake, after we said we wanted to try some!

    Great Hostel! Dorms are clean with fans+aircon, bathroom facilities a bit old but that's not too bad. It has a cozy living room where it's very easy to meet others while watching a movie. Breakfast (toast with spread, tea & coffee) available all day, same for drinking water. There's also a fridge to put your food in. Location very convenient too. John is a very dedicated host! Helped me out when I got sick and likes to help out with planning etc. Would stay again!

    Bit of a strange one - wouldn’t call it a hostel really. No hangout space - the rooftop terrace advertised was closed indefinitely and the owners were always sat in the living area. Dorm itself was nice and as described with air con, curtains, chargers etc. We ended up moving hostels due to lack of spaces to chill.

    Clean and comfy beds with great air con in the dorms and fast wifi as well. Only downer was the roof top bar in all the pictures no longer exists, the common area is quite small so somewhere extra to sit when the place was full would have been great

    Good bed spaces but small common area, very rarely staff there to help you. Breakfast is toast with various spreads available all day which is a bonus. Bathrooms not the cleanest as no staff there a lot of the time so they don’t clean it regularly
