“Second home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 June 2011

Wo Jia was one of my favourite guesthouses in the 6 months I travelled through Asia. The owner and the people I met there were so lovely it came to feel like a second home. Ming (owner) drove us to see many local attractions and the staff were always quick to suggest things to do whilst I was there. Saying that though, it would have been easy to get sucked into this place and not do anything at all!
The room was lovely too, i stayed in room 18 and I highly recommend it! It was clean, with air con and very reasonably priced. There was also a nice kitchen that was free to use and a lovely big communal area. The place had a great atmosphere and I would love to go back again :)

We are a couple from Germany and we planed to stay for four nights. However we ended up staying over two weeks. The service we experienced was amazing! The staff and the owner are very helpful. They will give you all the information (& assistance) you need and more (food, tours, shopping, etc.). They help you with your luggage and pick up if you like. The owner even took us serval times for lunch and dinner. The beverages are sold at a really fair price so you don't even have to go to the store for that. A basic breakfast as well as coffee and tea are provided for free. If you plan any tours you can store your luggage at the lodge. Don`t worry it is the safest place I have stayed at. in Asia. They even have a 24 h camera surveillance. If you can be bothered to cook you even a small kitchen for your use. The common room with riverview is a great place to relax, chat with other travellers or just to watch a dvd. Free wifi is also available.

The rooms vary in size but all of them are clean and most have aircon. Some rooms close to the stairs can be a bit noisy due to wooden flooring but that is restricted to daytime only when other guest are walking around. The showers and toilets are clean . However there could be one or two toilets more.

The location right on the waterfront is perfect (even better than the Hilton). If you have an issue you can always ask the staff or the owner. Improvements are made every day and I can absolutly recommend this place!!!

Don't waste your time looking around for a place to stay. This is best value for money in Kuching!!

Room Tip: rooms downstairs are a bit cooler

Stayed in Kuching for 3 nights and wish I could have stayed longer. This was mostly to due the very friendly staff working at Wo Jia. I was travelling solo and was always kept company during my stay. The hostel is in the perfect location for sightseeing, food, shopping, and relaxing in Kuching. The rooms are clean and spacious with all the facilities one could want. Great value for money, can't wait to come back and visit!

Wo Jia is a lodge located right on the riverfront within easy reach of all amenities. Stayed in a double room- clean, good a/c, linen, towels and soap provided.
Wo Jia has brilliant, exceptional staff. Ming (owner) and Zaki were friendly and took pains to ensure our comfort. They had excellent knowledge of local attractions and the best ways of getting there.

There was a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. We made regular use of lounge which over looked the river. Strong wifi signal, huge DVD and book collection.

A simple breakfast is available as well as a facility to buy drinks at cost price.

Wo Jia is a good base for exploring Sarawak and its attractions.

Wo Jia Lodge is a two floor pension with shared bath. The rooms are clean and spacious. The staff/owner are very friendly and helpful. Great little eateries are in abundance. There's a massive common room looking out over the Sarawak River. If you just want to hang out they've got about a million or so DVD's to choose from.
