    I love everything about this property!”
    The property is in a strategic location as it's just walking distance by the Waterfront, Main Bazaar and the Old Street. I was staying at the basic room and it has everything that I need with the attached bathroom and some space to get around in the room. They also provide extra electrical socket that was super helpful as I also had to do some work in-between my trip. The receptionist room is so cozy with Fluffy and Ninja hanging around that makes the lodge feel the sense of cat town. As a cat owner myself, it made me feel home in just a second. The staff was also super helpful from helping me to carry lots of stuff that I've brought for my travel (not the one to travel light indeed) to accommodating my need for laundry. The owner also suggested me some recommendations in terms of destination and how to reach there in Sarawak. It is super helpful that makes me want to go back again to plan another trip!

    Good location ”
    Located near Jalan Pandungan, this Lodge is a great place for a budget stay to explore the City Centre. It is also only about 5-10 minutes walk to the Waterfront Main Bazaar. The lodge has a computer for travellers who needs to do some quick planning & research for their trip. The only thing I wished that it could be better was if the en-suite bathroom is partitioned fully from the bedroom or it has some form of ventilation system of the room/bathroom.

    Staff are friendly. Owner helped me to order Grab cab to the airport which is much better than the old beaten down taxi's. Small kitchnette is available but I did not use it. Hotel entrance is quite obscure. Taxi driver did not know the place. Cleanliness can be improved. Room is hot without air-cond. Hotel location is good, very near to the river. But room does not have much of a view.

    Basic room are only equip with ceiling fan”
    I booked a basic room, its not mention in agoda it's only equip with fan. I though the cheapest room also come with air conditioning. I'm wrong. trusted with the same hotel i'll stay before the woodpecker lodge should mention about it only a room with fan. I'll ask to change room and paid another RM15 per night for air-conditioning room. Should know and notice this earlier, there re a lots of other hotel that better (cause we came with car) are available around Kuching that worth a dime to stay for that much. Everything else in the hotel were find, its equip for all backpackers, only this time i'm on work, not backpack. For backpack travelers, this hotel just nice for you guys, for others who rent a car in Kuching, you can find a lot more others hotel that better for you.

    Nice scam both from Agoda and the hostel”
    You book a room with taxes and fees included but when you arrive they ask you for a new taxe for 10RM. At evening we ask to extend, they ask us 12 moreRM than we paid!! They said it wasn’t possible that I paid this price but they couldn’t find in their register any tracks of my booking ( very professional..). Then I show on my phone but price was in euro and they use a really bad rating change and didn’t trust me about the real, very annoying staff. The room is small and Rey hot, plenty of ants, and haven’t been cleaned !! Skip this place

    The air conditioned single room was clean and cosy. The staff were very helpful and polite.”
    The only drawback is the fact that the stairway is narrow and the rooms are upstairs. Hard luck if you hv many things to carry! I had some trouble with the sliding bathroom door too which got stuck... I hurt my hand trying open it... but all in all, this place is a gem. Close enough to be near all The places that matter but nice and quiet all the same.

    The boss is really nice person and helpful. When he heard of my difficulties for coming back to Kuching, he kindly help me to figure out and find a driver to pick me up with a very low price. It was the second time I stayed here since it was very near to the famous local Cafe for me to have Laksa in the morning.

    Superb location, worth the price”
    Pros/Compliments: - 17min walk to waterfront via the riverside pathway. It's safe and you can take a boat ride (RM1/way) across the river. There, you can find halal food easily and shop for their famous layer cakes - Amenities within walking distance: 24 self service laundry, restaurants, local banks, massage parlour, 24h mamak - Staffs are friendly, place is clean Cons & suggestions: - The single room equipped with fan can be very warm in the afternoons. Installing a curtain would help reduce the heat, and make the room less bright in the mornings - There's a karaoke station closeby so it can be noisy evening onwards. Bring earplugs just incase

    This is a great place to stay if you are on a budget. The location is really good and the ambiance is awesome. Rooms are small but comfortable if you get air con room it's more comfortable. The roof top is being refurbished and will be a fabulous spot to hang and drink and enjoy the amazing view. Will def stay here again next time I go to kuching.

    Enjoyed my short stay at Woodpecker Lodge, though I would appreciate being informed by the owner/staffs regarding the exact amount of charges for airport transfer and confirmation on airport transfer before I called or having an email sent. Overall, the room is clean and service is great. On a side note, I think having a shower curtain in the rooms would be nice.

    On the positive side, we experienced fast check in; the room was clean with basic facilities-they provided towels, soap, toilet paper & complimentary drinking water;bed was comfortable; wifi & air-conditioning were also working well. On the negative side, tv was not clear & with limited channels; water heater shower was not functioning. From our room we can hear loud music from pub downstairs, however we were able to tolerate as we went back late & were tired after the whole day exploring the town. Overall, this hotel is absolutely great for short stay & those who are concern about budget.

    Overall it's a good place to stay and I'd recommend it for someone on a budget. It is located right in the middle of everything - it's a 5 minute walk to just about anything you want to do in Kuching. There is a karaoke bar downstairs which plays very loud music until late. You can hear the music at a tolerable level in the room - it's not bad and I didn't lose sleep over it but it is noticeable. The rooms are nothing fancy but have the basics and everything works. The wireless internet worked well enough for me to do skype calls and was reliable.
