This is probably the best place to stay in when visiting Kuching. Clean and comfortable. The staff is incredibly helpful with anything you ask. Strongly recomended if you are in kuching. Close to the waterfront and alot of great restaurants.

We stayed 3 nights here. Really friendly staff, very helpful. They also help in the organization of trips and tours. The common room is well designed, with a DVD player and some movies. There's a good collection of books also. It's exactly what we wanted, not too comfortable that we'd spend all day in and not shabby or unclean. The...

This guesthouse is very basic, which is all we were looking for. We had a comfortable bed, AC and a clean toilet and shower. The gentlemen that run the place were great, friendly and knowledgeable when helping us out. On the 2nd floor are some great outdoor showers, this was the best part honestly! The place felt safe and secure....

Located within walking distance to river, restaurants, pubs, shopping etc. Staff always available with good advice on what to do or where to go in Kuching. Place was clean and beds comfortable. Good value and I will come back.

I stayed here in June this year (I know it's rather late)! But I really had a wonderful time at this hostel. I was only supposed to stay here 3 nights, but ended up staying here for a week! I think it's probably something to do with the lovely people who worked here, the people I met while staying here...

As I first entered the common room, it struck me that I finally found a hostel in Borneo that has this typical 'hostel'-vibe (which is a good thing!). There is enough space to chill and hang out and it's a good place meet new people. Dorms are basic but decent, beds comfi. The showers on the other hand are amazing!!...

Staff are friendly and very accommodating. Strategic place if you are food hunter and a bar hopper who likes to party til 3AM. Accessible to foodshops, few minutes away from the river and just 15-20 minutes away from the airport buy cab.

Had a great stay here. Breakfast is basic and often had to ask for items such as milk but they always bought it when requested. Good location and the rooms are clean and cool. Was a really chilled out vibe and was really good selection of DVDs if you fancied watching a film

I really enjoyed my stay at the Seahare, so much so it took me over a week to actually leave (I had only planned to stay 3 days) Davo and Ben are great guys and very welcoming, along with their girlfriend/wife/family. You get a nice homey vibe here. The bar is great, especially for a sports fan like myself. Managed...

The staff is so amazing, Ben and Dave, are so hospitable and friendly. My bed was comfy, clean towels, clean shower, A/C, and a chill lounge area, great for meeting new people. This hostel was the highlight of my stay in Kuching. I spent my time with the hostel owner's son, Zaki, and he later started calling me Uncle Joey!...

“Private Rooms 3 & 4 are the quietest upstairs. The dorm is comfortable and all of the linens are provided for you, including a towel upon request. You're going to spend most of your time on the couches in the lounge.”
