    The cleanliness of the hotel is very bad.”

    The hotel is pretty good because near the middle of kuching city. But what I do not like here is that in terms of hotel cleanliness is not very satisfying because mattress sheets are never washed or washed. My body is itching and I can not sleep with it.

    Clean and comfortable guesthouse in a good locatio”

    Cosy, clean and quiet double room. Small open area with plants and waterfall. Clean shared bathrooms.

    We stayed in a double room on the second floor (steep wooden stairs) . It was cosy and clean (with big desk, tiny chair, 2 hooks, aircon, fan, two windows) and we heard no street noise at all. Under us, on the first floor was an open common area+kitchen+terrace and the floor consisted of wooden boards only, so we could hear people talking clearly. But it did not disturb us. Each floor has two bathrooms (with toilet and strong hot shower) which were clean and comfortable to use. Reception is open until 7pm, you get a card for access. All the staff members were friendly and on our check out day, the lady let us store our luggage until the evening and even called a taxi for us. We enjoyed our stay. This hostel is a friendly, clean and cheap place situated right in the middle of the waterfront. Terima kasih :)

    Musty but cosy and comfortable”

    I stayed here for many days in the 4 bedroom female dorm in the 2nd floor. I was lucky to have the dorm to myself most of my stay, l enjoyed the quiet and space to myself very much. Love the freedom that the staff allows us guests, and grateful for the convenient toasts for breakfast. The cleaning aunty is also very friendly, helpful, and does her best to keep the place clean. Smoking is allowed only on the first floor open air area, but smell of smoke is strong and doesn't escape well. The front double room has a great view but is plagued by the sound from the traffic lights outside for pedestrian crossings. But overall, I had a great stay and will return if need.

    Everything is good for the price, clean bathroom with hot shower, comfortable bed. BUT aircond in dorm only available from 7pm-9am, staying in room during daytime would be scorching hot because of the weather. AND, they gave me a torn pillow case.

    Hostel is good. Strategic location. But cleanliness is not as expected as I cannot sleep all night due to mites. At first, I thought it was mosquitoes but later i found that it was mites that causing severe itchiness and swollen to my body (legs and trunks). Hope that hostel management can overcome this problem as it is really irritated.
