Very noisy due to the nearby karaoke bar. The room was very dirty.Tv has two working channels ,both in Malay. Water coolers do not cool . Air con worked fine although noisy. Bedding not changed in four days. Towels , the size of hand towels , were only changed on request.Please pay a little extra and find somewhere better.

Room needed a better clean upon my arrival...the Satellite TV (smallest flat screens I have ever seen!!) are rubbish with only 4 channels and NO English...bedding and linen and towels were fine though, air con great (although it does leak water onto the desk at times you will have to lay down a towel to soak it on up), wi-fi...

Room was clean and cheap. had a decent shower, clean towels, two beds, free wifi. A few really good bars and restaurants close by. The guy at the front desk was very helpful and informative. I will stay here again next time I come, no sense in paying top dollar for just a place to sleep.

Premium Stay Hostel - Kuching We booked for two nights initially and stayed for five. A good location (find the Lime Tree Hotel and it's on the cross street right next to that). Good strong wifi signal and good internet connection in the rooms (and we had the last room furtherest away from the router!) There was no window to...

The hostel is near the padungan road and the cat statue, very old town area. But it is a bit far to the famous area like india street or the riverside. Room is big and clean. The reception are very friendly and helpful during my stay. About 5-10 minutes walk to one of the old market (24 hours).

We stayed in a family room with one queen, 2 single beds that were comfortable. The room had a balcony and was light and clean. As others have said, friendly staff and pretty good location. It's hard to find a family room at a reasonable price - we paid 115RM which is really good. There were a few downsides. The...

Room doesnt look like what the pictures show in the internet. Propably they have one nice room for advertising. Sheets were old and from the guest before, I guess. Bathroom was ok, but it smelled like sh**... you can imagine. It was ok thatfor, that it is a hostel and not a hotel. More than one night is to long.

We stayed here for 8 nights as this was our base for all the trips we did around Kuching. The rooms are very clean and a good hot shower (which is very rare in Malaysia)! The "internet problem" is solved as they changed the router during our stay. Also the guy at the reception is very nice and helpfull. One...
