We stayed in a couple of different rooms over our stay, all the rooms had lots of traffic noise. Bedding and towels were old and tired. Staff were very nice and friendly. Breakfast was toast and cereal. All in all thought it was over priced for what you got. Moved to Kuching waterfront lodge and think it's way better value.

We stayed in a deluxe room and it had a 4 poster bed!!! :) The room and the attached bathroom were considerably clean, and had a nice Sarawak local feel to it with the deco and all. The rooftop bar was amazing! All these for a very decent price! And since it was centrally located, we could walk everywhere!

Great to get off a 14 hour bus trip and land at the Singgahsana Lodge. They set our 4 kids up in a room with a bunk bed and 2 singles - they had no bathroom - but each floor had ample toilets and showers. We had a fabulous basement room with private bathroom and a reading annex. Really cute.... More

This hostel is amazing! Staff is superfriendly and willing to help you with anything. Rooms are clean. The bunkbed in the dorm was supercomfi, the best bed I've slept in in all of Borneo. Rooftopbar is cool, it's a nice place to chill. Breakfast is simple but better than average. Location is very good, just 3 steps from the Waterfront.... More

The Singghasana is a great hostel in the middle of town. It backs onto cool little backstreets and is across from the river. We stayed as a family of four in a clean basic room with a large bed and bunkbeds. The little bar upstairs is a nice retreat and everyone is friendly. Light sleepers may be bothered by the... More

Great bar, couldn't understand why it was so quiet up there! Seems like an untapped place which was a shame! Helpful staff can organise taxi's and tours if interested. Very knowledgable... More

Stayed at Singgahsana for the recent RWMF2016. Overall i love how this lodge is centrally located in the city. You have lots of 7eleven,restaurants & coffee shop around. Bars aplenty too for some nightlife. I'd say a perfect budget stay for those who are going to the yearly Rainforest World Music Fest (RWMF) since the shuttle bus to the event... More

Hostel is leagues ahead of others in the area. It is full of useful information for traveling through Borneo, staff are friendly, rooms are very clean and hang out area/bar is awesome with plenty of space to meet other travelers. One of the most homely hostels that I've stayed at.
