Although this place is a on the cheaper side for borneo, we didn't think it was great value for money. The room was quite small and dirty. (Lots of cob webs, paint peeling off the celine) it was advertised online with a television but ours had neen taken of the wall. Wifi was poor. It is a nice location and...

This lodge was recommended by a friend to me & I saw the pictures of the place which motivated to stay here. I was here for leisure trip for more than 2 weeks. The location was in a strategic place whereby easy to access to restaurants, shopping malls, tourist attraction places & most important was next to Sarawak river where...

Would recommend this place for solo travellers and on a tight budget. Restaurants are very close by. Quite place during the night. Slept better here. Very cheap and friendly receptionist/clerk. They provide all of the travel information and packages. Stayed for 2 nights with no problem at all. There's a kitchen where u can cook. 2 lovely cats you can...

I've stayed 3 nights at this hotel. First room was terrible, only wall, no window. At night I open the door to get some oxygen, I had only fan as I requested in order to lower the price. The second and third days, I asked the staff to change the room, they are 2 persons, friendly but not always available....

The bath room are not sealed and you can feel the aircon in the room, meaning that when you poo or pee the room smells. Try sleeping when your family poo in the toilet, DISGUSTING! Morning Muslim prayer and night ktv singing.

The lodge itself is located near Waterfront and lots of other interesting places. Clean. Safe. The staffs are very cheerful and helpful. The room is not bad for its price. Very quiet and relaxing place to be. Wifi is ok ok lah. Been here many times already. Overall, good! Only thing that matter is pest control. But it pretty obvious...

If you're looking for somewhere to sleep, on a budget, and you are not looking for space or luxury, then this is great for you. The rooms are clean, have good hot showers, a comfortable bed, and air conditioning. Importantly my room was also clean of insects. The staff are incredibly friendly and will organise activities, suggest good local restaurants,...

This nice budget hotel, located very near to the centre of activities, but far enough to don't be in the crowd, is clean, with pretty small rooms but well organised and wo fi working well.

Loved staying here for three weeks while we were in Kuching. The manager spent a while telling us about all the things to see and how to get there cheap. I was planning on spending a lot to do the trips but with his help I saved £100's Would defo stay again :)

Found this little lodge randomly one day and decide to stay a night out in Kuching town. The place itself is hard to find at first as it's located right above a night club. The Lodge, to be honest, quite different than what you saw in the website. But for the rate given, it's a decent backpackers lodge. First appointed...
