Stayed here for 5 nights , clean and tidy, breakfast included , Matt was very helpful , always willing to arrange or help even though at the time he was a bit poorly (get well soon). 55 RM for a double room and worth it. Loved the place , keep up the good work

Perfect location at the center on Old China Town, close the to river. The nearby restaurants are not so cheap but the market is also close by where you can find any food you like. Beautiful Chinese temples at every corner. You can easily catch the bus to Bako NP just at the traffic lights, 2 min walk. The staff...

I have just stayed at Bori Ottok for 3 nights. It was slick, well laid out and thought put into the design and set up like a boutique hotel, crisp sheets and super efficient and friendly host. The host is a mine of information and happy to help and explain everything. Such a wonderful place.

As written many times on TA reviews...it is really clean and neat in the centre of "backpakers" heaven in Kuching. Mike is just great; friendly, curious, fun and gives all needed info you need. Rooms (we went for a room for 3) are small,but tidy although I really missed at least tiny window..Recomended!

The best part was really the cleanness. The bathroom looked like new. The guy at the reception was amanzingly helpful and friendly (unfortunately I...

We initially planned to stay at Bori Ottok for 2 nights based solely on the reviews given here about Mat the manager. Sincewe were turning up with no clue what to do in the area we needed someone to help us get a plan together. Mat was amazing and friendly; helping us work out what we had time to fit...
