We stayed here for 3 nights, and it felt like home right away. The standard is simple, but you got everything you need to enjoy Kuching. The people who work here are THE best, they will help you plan everything there is to explore in this lovely city and the places around.

My brother and I stayed here for 5 days and it was everything we could ever need from a hostel. Wifi, breakfast, and great people. The dorms were comfortable with plenty of plugs, the showers had hot water (with great water pressure), and the people were great! Plus, they have an excellent movie collection :) We really felt like we... More

We booked on hostel world and the hostel was called a different name to Paradesa (forgotten what it was called now), so when we were in our taxi from the airport (which Paradesa kindly booked for us) the taxi driver had trouble finding the place! As soon as we found it, the manager / owner (Amy) was super helpful, gave... More

A great backpackers hostel in a great location (right on the waterfront) in Kicking. We stayed for a total of three nights and loved our stay. Excellent hosts and a really relaxed atmosphere conducive to meeting lots of new people. Although this does make it rather easy to pass many hours in the confines of the hostel! We stayed in... More

Such an amazing experience. Seahare is not just a hostel it will become a 2nd home. Located in the centre of town beside the river. Everything you need is in walking distance and you can book tours in the shop downstairs. With lovely rooms, great beds in a large 12 bed dorm, hot water, imternet and simple breakfast facilities there... More

Absolutely loved this place! It felt like home. Very spacious dorm room which has air conditioning so it was very easy to sleep at night. There are hot showers, toast, tea and coffee for breakfast, movie selection, board games, bean bags...they really have it all. There is a small locker for any valuables which is very handy and a cute... More

We booked the airport pickup for 25 ringgit and were met by Ben, brother of Greg who, with Amy, runs the hostel. They offered us a choice of rooms, one with a window and fan and the other with no window and air conditioning. We took the one with the window, it was good; neat, high ceilings and relatively cool... More

I stayed at Borneo Seahare in April for 4 days after booking just 1 night! It's a very small backpackers with a big heart. The owners are really lovely, not only giving lots of advice but are very much part of everyone's experience as they live there too. The rooms are small but the beds are comfortable, hot showers and... More

Home sweet home! My 11-days stay at Borneo was in one word amazing. Initially, I booked only a few nights, but the extreme friendliness of Amy and Greg, the cozy and personal atmosphere of the hostel and the numerous activities to do in the vicinity made me keep extending my stay. The hostel is extremely clean, has a great atmosphere... More
