Hero hostel is with walking distance to the water front. Really good value for money. Room is basic but a bed is all you need. Aircon and good wifi. The lady that works at the reception desk is super friendly and always happy. We are staying again in a few day.

          good hostel”
          the reception Lady Regina was so lovely and helpful. She is like an Angel, Granni and Housekeeper all in one. She was showing me the bus station to bako nationalpark and gaves me so many tips about kuching. Hostel was clean and the own bathroom was nice. Hot water and AC was good too. Room was a little bit smelly but that's why I had the AC on the whole day, than it was fine. The concept of the Hostel is brilliant, never saw anything like this before. Ok during nighttime it was noisy but she let me know before and I read it here. I had earplugs with me.

          Enjoyed our stay, the host was so kind going out of her way to walk us over to a less known bus stop for the national park. She really cares about your experience. Can be a little loud at night but was okay for us, it's good value and is above a 24 hour restaurant. Which is convenient.

          The reception lady was lovely and so helpful in showing us the bus stop to Bako National Park and telling us about other things happening in Kuching. The hostel was clean and bathroom was fine. Quirky decorations as each room is decorated like a superhero. It was nosiy as others have stated and the reception lady also let us know that we were to expect noise.

          The manager was extremely helpful and friendly. She helped plan all of my trips and showed me where to get on the buses. I liked the rooms and the hero themes. Because it's part of a building complex it does feel a bit like you are staying in an apartment. The nearby topspot food court is a great place to get seafood and the place downstairs has great rotis. The only issue is that it is a bit loud at night. Other wise for this price range it's a great place.

          The location is very strategic, walking distance to any local attractions. However, it was next to a club so the music wont stop from night to dawn. The room with private toilet is very clean, they even have hot shower and it’s working nicely. Although, there is no window but air conditioning is in good condition so you wont feel hot at all. Regina, the housekeeper is very friendly to explain abt the places we should visit. Just need to improve the common area facilities, we tried to use the water heater to eat some noodle cup at late night but it’s not cleaned and the heater looks like it was abandoned for I am not sure how long.Overall, I give 4.5/5. It was a pleasant stay.

          We like to stay in Hero Hostel. The room was quite small for that big matress but that’s fine anyway. The WiFi didn’t work in our room but the staff tried to fixe it and they were very friendly and helpful about the information we needed. Even she came with us to the bus station to show us where it was. Good value for the money! And clean 👍🏼

          Hero Hostel is located close to the waterfront in Kuching, just a few minutes walk down the road. The rooms are small and basic but comfortable and clean. The superhero theme is amazingly well done, every wall and corner is plastered with comics, pictures, movie posters, scenes, etc. The amount of care that went into the design is amazing! Judging by the looks alone this hostel is a highlight of our Asian tour (which, after six months and well over 60 different accommodations should tell you something)! The receptionist lady is also amazingly helpful, she was every bit as lovely as the place itself. Highly recommended!

          The owner of hero’s hostel is so lovely! She provided us with maps / timetables for all the amazing sites in Kuching. The rooms are decorated keeping in theme and the shared bathrooms are cleaned daily if not twice a day. There is a shopping complex about 5 minutes walk away that has a very cheap cinema and bowling alley - great for evening fun! Definitely worth a visit.

The hotel policy was check in at 2pm onwards but i messaged them to req. for early check in.They allow me & i checked in at 10am.no additional charges.When i need to check out early,Regina was so kind to assist me bringging down some of my stuffs,she even walk my kid downstairs to our car. It is a budget hostel,and I dont expect much to be honest,but somehow it felt so homey there.A pub is downstairs but from my room the sound is very minimal it doesnt bother me or my little girl at all,we slept like a log haha..the only cons about the hostel is u have to climb the stairs up to level 3.But doing tht for 11 days i really shed some weight lol...Anyway,for my next trip to kch il def. will stay here again.

Gave us all the information about how to get to Bako National Park and Semengoh Orangutan reserve. She even took us to the local bus stop (where you catch the bus to Bako) and a good place for eating near by! Really recommend this place, you honestly need to stay here. Dont hesitate!

Near from restaurants and waterfront. Two points to improve, a water fountain will be usefull and at night it's noise from nearest bars

          It is a conducive and the staff is very caring and attentive as well. They are aware of the noisy pub below of the hostel and provide ear plugs as well. But, it was not needed for us anyway. However, there are cockroaches in the room we stayed, we have killed 3/4 of them. We mention it to the staff and they offer to change room and spray the pesticide. But, since we were out of the room most of the time, and couldn't get a time to shift, we didn't change the room either. Albeit, after the killing the cockroaches, we didnt see it anymore, so it may have just be those few that came inside the room. Anyway, it's a plus point that they do make an effort for it and normally there wouldn't be a staff there as there are understaffed and also this give more privacy to the guests. A good hostel nevertheless.
