    Best 2 star hotel . Totally recommended!”

    I went here as a solo traveler. The location of this hotel is so strategic because it's located at the heart of Kuching city. Most of the time I just walked to the place I want to visit like Darul Hana Bridge, Cat statue, Chinese History Museum and Upside Down Kuching. This hotel has good Wifi connection, 24/7 hours CCTV, aircond, clean and tidy bathroom and room. I had a good time when I was here.

    Most Durian friendly accommodation!!!”

    Backpacker Stay had a very lovely staff, always smile when we came and went and always helpful to us. They were so kind to allow my fiancé and I to bring upwards to 6 durian into our room at a time. We know this was extreme but they allowed it anyway. Maybe they will change their durian policy after our stay there as most westerners do not have an interest in this odorous fruit. Luckily for them only a few other guest came and went during our visit to Kuching. We probably caught them off guard. Ha. And they were humble so not wanting to disappoint us. The stay is located right in the heart of City Center with easy access to most everything one would need. The large eatery next door stays open late and opens early so be prepared for the sound of dishes stacking. The lockers were big and spacious, we could easily fit all of our valuables onto them. The water was also warm and comfortable. The wifi signal was also dependable. I wish this establishment all the best and success in their future.

    Very Helpful +Friendly Staff-- so I returned !”

    Helpful STAFF, COMFORTABLE TWIN BED, Great LOCATION !

    This was a quick return stay, before flying onward to KL... this time I chose the FEMALE DORM: it was empty, no others were booked, the twin bed is more comfortable than the over-soft double bed! Even though the room is next to the common eating area, it was quieter than the upstairs rooms, which recv noise from the next-door Chinese Food Court, which starts food prep btwn 3-4AM.... and can frequently be heard in the upstairs rooms. During my first stay, there was peanut butter available: this time, there wasn't any--and the night staff-person promised he would buy some PNB the next morning, before breakfast-- and it was there! Thank You! The areas are kept clean. However, the two broken shower-water-heaters were still broken, a month later... and the third shower (on the first floor) was still working quite well, with strong, HOT water -- helpful for shaving, ha ha ha. The location of Backpacker Stay is GREAT for the Cinema (2 wiin easy walking distance!), for Museums, the Natl Park+Tourist Info offices, the PO, and the newest shopping mall, Merdeka Plaza, as well as the Waterfront and the market streets of Jalan India and Main Bazaar. I recommend Backpacker Stay for fellow Budget Travellers to Kuching.
