Nomad was a great experience. David is so helpful and friendly! Great location, easy access to the buses, promenade, cinemas etc. Breakfast included as a big plus, laundry facilities, wide range of books on the shelves. Peaceful atmosphere! Well recommended.

David, the guy who works here is so lovely! Always smiling and helpful. We also met the owners in a pub and they are also very friendly although we didn't see them in the b&b. The rooms are quite small but are clean. Some are windowless and/or with shared bathroom (prices between 50 and 65 Rm). The dorm is 20... More

I stayed in a single room, setting me back RM50/night which seems standard. The room is clean, with nothing but a bed, a hanger on the door and a power point. It is clean and serves it's purpose however a side table of some sort would be nice to be able to sit your phone or book on as you... More

I planned to stay in Kuching a few days, checked in to Nomad Borneo and left 14 days later. This place can easily become a home away from home. The staff; Mr T, Chris, David, are super friendly, knowledgeable people and a big reason as to why you feel so comfortable here; the hostel has both a big heart and... More

I stayed about 1 week in Nomad and love it. The rooms are clean and nice (even though some do not have a window), painted in warm colours and decorated with nice Iban paintings. The staff, especially Chris, is incredibly friendly and helpful and will give you information and help you organizing your trips. The breakfast (all day!) is great... More

My husband and I stayed here for three nights and while we enjoyed the social aspect, i.e. meeting other travelers, we didn't care for the room. We had a double with aircon and no window. It was clean and well maintained but really tiny, with only enough room for the bed up against the wall and a small night stand.... More
