I stayed here with my boyfriend for three nights when we first arrived in Kuching based on the reviews. I think it may have had it's hay day in the past, but it's still in a great location and the staff were helpful on the first night. It's great value for money, with Chinatown and India Street being so close.... More

Spent three nights with my girlfriend. Have nothing bad to say about this accommodation. It is in a brilliant location right on the waterfront in the old bazaar. Loads of places to eat and drink around. Bus station (to national parks and caves) is just a 10 minute walk. Rooms were clean and comfortable, some nice communal areas, staff were... More

I stayed here for 2 nights on the basis of the reviews, but was a little disappointed. The room was ok, but everything just seemed a little sad and unloved, and the bathrooms weren't very clean. The friendly atmosphere that this place is sold on was completely missing - I think I had the same 2 staff as one of... More

Stayed at this GH was a friend's decision - He stayed here many years ago which was good and he wanted to stay here again. To me, a twice room for USD15 a night was very cheap. But I will not stay there again as the GH is very run down and most of the rooms without window. Good side... More

Our first night in Kuching was at this dirty hostel. We did not enjoy it much. The staff was unfriendly and not very helpful. The breakfast did consist of toasted bread coffee and tea that you served yourself at the reception area. We do not recommend this place.

Horrible and unusefull personal. Personal doing noisy party up to night. On the floor with most of the rooms were crashed shower and toilet. Absolutely don't understand, why they have so good references.

The friendliness of the staffs less than what we are expected from the review. Location is excellent, near to most of the tourist attraction. However, the room looks old and not renovate as there was a huge spot of water stain on the ceiling. Plan to stay more than a night but end out just stayed only one night.

Pretty cheap at rm59 for private room, clean enough (though bathrooms could be better) and a good location with English speaking staff. Quiet enough place despite paper thin walls! Overall an OK place for a short stay.

We booked for 6 nights and were given an aircon/fan room instead of just a fan which was great. Room was large and fan and AC worked fine, very basic but good value for cost. The location was great as well. The WiFi also worked excellent, we even streamed Netflix most nights. The sad thing about our stay was the... More
