I've stayed 3 nights at this hotel. First room was terrible, only wall, no window. At night I open the door to get some oxygen, I had only fan as I requested in order to lower the price. The second and third days, I asked the staff to change the room, they are 2 persons, friendly but not always available....

The bath room are not sealed and you can feel the aircon in the room, meaning that when you poo or pee the room smells. Try sleeping when your family poo in the toilet, DISGUSTING! Morning Muslim prayer and night ktv singing.

The lodge itself is located near Waterfront and lots of other interesting places. Clean. Safe. The staffs are very cheerful and helpful. The room is not bad for its price. Very quiet and relaxing place to be. Wifi is ok ok lah. Been here many times already. Overall, good! Only thing that matter is pest control. But it pretty obvious...

If you're looking for somewhere to sleep, on a budget, and you are not looking for space or luxury, then this is great for you. The rooms are clean, have good hot showers, a comfortable bed, and air conditioning. Importantly my room was also clean of insects. The staff are incredibly friendly and will organise activities, suggest good local restaurants,...

Loved staying here for three weeks while we were in Kuching. The manager spent a while telling us about all the things to see and how to get there cheap. I was planning on spending a lot to do the trips but with his help I saved £100's Would defo stay again :)

Found this little lodge randomly one day and decide to stay a night out in Kuching town. The place itself is hard to find at first as it's located right above a night club. The Lodge, to be honest, quite different than what you saw in the website. But for the rate given, it's a decent backpackers lodge. First appointed...

I stayed here thinking that I may not interact with many people which I was sad about but the owners made a huge effort to keep it comfortably social. I stayed her for about 10 days which went so fast. I plan to come back as soon as I can. The room was clean and neat, the bed was comfortable...

Reasonable budget option that could be a lot better with a decent clean and some attention to detail. Staff were extremely friendly and at $RM69 for a single room with hot shower it is good value. My room wasn't clean - lots of dust and cobwebs especially in the fan. Some of the other rooms looked better. Also note this...
