We booked our stay at the Nomad based on reviews from other sites, but didn't really know what we were stepping into. I made the reservation online and they emailed back with information and details how to get to the property. The cab driver knew exactly where to go when we got off at the airport.

From the outside and main hallway, the place looks like your standard backpacker hostel, but after meeting the staff, you quickly change your mind and impression of the hostel. The guys who run it are tattoo clad men from the Iban tribe and can fill you in on pretty much anything you're looking to do while in Kuching. They were very helpful.

Each morning, breakfast is included. Crepes with every type of spread imaginable, plus fresh juice and all you can eat bread throughout the day.

The rooms are spotless (we got a private double) with an ensuite, window, and airconditioning. It was exactly what we were looking for. The common room is fully stocked with DVDs, and Wifi access is available everywhere in the building.

The location is nice, just 2 minutes walk from China town, 15 minutes to the old centre of the town, and 10 minutes of so the other direction to the hotel district. Make sure you go to Top Spot Food Court when you're in Kuching... the seafood is AMAZING.

We had a great time in Kuching, and Nomad was one of the major reasons that this was the case.

Only downside was the walls were a little thin. We had the whole floor to ourselves so it wasn't a problem in the least.

Thanks again Nomad!

We initially wanted to try the place for a night and ended up staying for the whole week we were in kuching. It was convenient to walk to the river, the market and some shopping areas. The room we stayed in didn't have window but had a fan. That did the job during the winter (~30 celcius). Not sure how it will feel in the summer. The sound proof was so-so. Two shared showers down the hall. The staffs were extremely warm and helpful.

So, keep in mind this is a very basic place and is for people on budget.
