This guesthouse is a lovely place to stay, very comfortable, nicely decorated, wonderful staff with a delicious self service breakfast which changes every morning. Really good free wifi. Lockers in the rooms. Super super clean shared bathrooms. We came back again and again and I would really recommend it.

This is a great guesthouse in Kuching. The location would be the only downside, as it's a 10-20 minute walk into town, depending on where you go. Rooms are quite comfortable. Shared bathrooms are cleaned regularly. Wifi is decent. Breakfast is basic, but has a little variety each day, which is nice. Sam and Georgette are wonderful hosts. They always... More

Lovely lovely people, comfy beds, breakfast of toast, no swimming pool ;) great place to stay as the owners make you feel so welcome, they're so friendly and easy to talk to however there is nothing to do or see in kuching, if you are going to go there stay here but I wouldn't recommend or bother going to kuching.
