    Relaxing, quiet and simply a good break!”
    Affordable price, clean, helpful staff.
    We went there without any expectations and were pleasantly surprise by the clean and comfy room based on what we paid for. The staff were very helpful, he gave us tips on what to do and see, helped us to arrange for airport transfer and even loaned us his umbrella when we were on our way out to for dinner and it started raining heavily. The WiFi was really fast! The only things that I didn't ike was my room was located too near the reception and I could hear noisy travellers checking in. The ceiling was high and I could hear the echo of their noise.

    Centrally located no frills clean budget hostel ”
    Very friendly & informative staff, no frills clean air-cond room and unlimited supply of hot/cold drinking water.
    The hostel was centrally located at the junction of Abell Road and Lorong Padungan Utara, opposite the Lime Tree Hotel, via a side door leading upstairs. Only a small signboard was visible. The staff manning the place, Mr Andy is very friendly, helpful and informative and readily recommended eating places, tourist places, famous Kuching food etc. Although hostel was no frills and basic, it was value for money and the unlimited drinking water supply was handy in view of the hot weather. Plenty of eating places nearby and food is very cheap. Short walking distance to waterfront for river cruise, museums, temples, mosque and other tourist attractions. Take a short boat ride across the river for 50 sen (RM 0.50) and visit the Orchid Garden in front of the new State Assembly Building, beside the Astana. All in all, a very good value hostel to stay in if you just intend to sleep & freshen up. LCD TV with movies in room for relaxation.

    The owner of the hostel is very friendly. The room itself is good enough for me with the amount of money I paid. Since its location near the main road, so it quite noisy at night. This hostel near to the restaurant RJ ayam bakar the most famous restaurant in Kuching. It tooks about 5 mins walk.

    The host and your value for money.
    This place was a little difficult to find but for your information it is across the road from the Lime Tree Hotel and next door to a medical centre. The host, who is very helpful and charming is able to provide a good map. He also speaks excellent English and will make any travel arrangements you might need. I was very impressed. Nice room with comfortable bed. All in all I would have to say it was excellent value. I am sure you would not be disappointed if you stayed.

    Disappointing”
    We booked Standard Double. After check-in, room which was proposed to us - was totally different and worst, in comparing with that, which we seen on the images. First 5 minutes, man on the reception tried to convince us, that all rooms looks the same bla-bla-bla. Only, after I showed pictures of the room from the agoda - he agreed to change room. So, be careful during check-in. And several comments: 1. Hair dryer - I didnt find it. 2. Complimentary bottled water - I didnt find water in the room :) When I asked about the water on reception, I had to pay for water. 3. We stayed in this hotel 3 nights, and no one has ever offered to clean the room or change the towels

    Friendly staffs, safe and convenient access to shopping area
    My stay was a good and safe at the hotel. I felt at home with friendly staffs, easy access to any eatery and shopping mall. Toilet was ok, the room was good. If I may purpose the hotel to offer more tv channel such as HBO or Star tv for relaxing after being out day and comes back at night and hope the hotel could offer plastic spoon and few packet of 3 in 1 drink for those who love to have a sip of 3 in 1 drink in the morning. Overall mh friend I would love to recommend this hotel for other travellers who wishes to have a short visit to Kuching and its really worth for your money value as it is a low cost budget hotel.

    Location, free wifi, helpful staff
    The waterfront is only 10-15 minutes walking distance, a lot of shops and restaurants nearby. The owner can help arrange for day trips to areas outside of Kuching city center. The staff is also very helpful and helped us to find a car rental from the internet. We stayed at the family room which is overall clean with fresh linen and towels, although the walls could use a new coat of paint, and the toilet roll holder is broken.

Very friendly and helpful staff, gave us directions and suggestions on what to do. Good place to stay, but there are also other places in the centre for the same price and quality.

However, room service can be improved because they forgot to provide mineral water during the room service. Besides, they also forgot to refill the toilet papers.
