“3am music cranked up next door”
Reviewed 4 February 2014 via mobile

As a hostel, it's fine inside. Shared bathrooms are clean and there's nice homely touches in the room. Our a/c didn't work though and no fan. Ah well we thought, not the end of the world. So far, so good...

But then the music started up in the bar across the road until 3am. We dismissed this as just being a weekend night; but it was like that on a Sunday and the Monday night too... That was the point where we knew this was the norm and we just had to move accommodation. It literally sounded as if you were in the middle of a club yourself, even with earplugs in (which we bought after the first night).

It's a shame, because it's hardly their fault - but I wouldn't go back for this reason. We found a lovely new hostel for the rest of our stay in Kuching.

Stayed February 2014, travelled as a couple

Yep once you try this place you will be calling everyone baby and darling.

I see the previous reviewer did not appreciate the Zachery experience. Not for everyone I guess but he was very helpful with local transport, hiring a motorbike, finding a good local place to eat and planning our journey up to Sabah. He will tell you the actual local prices too.

The rooms were average or good for a backpackers. The bathroom was fine and the place was kept clean. Breakfast was toast and jam. There is a fridge and freezer in the kitchen and one of the only places in Malaysia so far with a burner in the kitchen that you can cook your own meals.

My only blemish on this experience was that Zachery forgot to show us to the bus stop the day we headed to Bako NP. Forgiveable I guess. Yes you Zachery.

Thanks for having us

Possibly the worst hostel I stayed in in S E Asia, I had to check out and move to another hostel. The rooms were quite clean, the bedding smelt very nice, but the beds were uncomfortable. The bathroom was kept pretty clean, but the shower room often smelt of piss, which I think maybe came from the drains. The shower itself was extremely poor, barely more than a trickle. The kitchen was disgusting. Free breakfast is provided in the form of bread, butter and jam, but there were ants everywhere, all over the food, in the butter, in the tea, coffee and sugar. The worst thing about this place was the owner, who insists on calling everyone 'baby' and walking around in his underpants, and I just found him plain creepy. He used the word 'baby' so often that he accidentally used it in instead of normal words like 'day' and 'festival'

My family of four stayed here for four nights, kids loved the homely feel as did we. Zachary who runs it is super friendly and very helpful, even dropped us at a few places in his own car. Only downside is you need earplugs to sleep, though once they are in all is good.

Stayed here back in 2010 for a few nights whilst backpacking around SE Asia.

It's in a great location (just a couple of minutes walk from the river/centre of town), rooms are an ok size (our bed was really uncomfortable) and the walls were paper thin so when people are staying up late drinking and talking we couldn't sleep - BUT - it was clean and tidy and the guys that worked there were so friendly it felt like you were staying with friends.

If you are backpacking around and want a friendly place to stay with no frills this is for you - if you are on holiday and want something amazing go and stay in a 5* down the road and pay 100x more!
