I stayed for 2 days. Day 1 after check in and enter the room already feel disappointed and regret. Don't be the next victim and don't fully trust on previous review and the ranking given. Very noises especially weekend due to sing k at downstairs. Packing slot limited.

I paid S$73 for 3 nights in a room with a double bed. The room is very small - roughly 4 X 3 metres. The bathroom is 1 X 3 m and the rest fits a queen sized bed with some space left to move around. A small flat screen TV, a small ledge and a few hooks on the... More

We really liked this lodge, as it was a good value. Rooms were clean and comfortable and location is great - right in the center of town. The only downside is that the lodge is directly above a karaoke parlor that stays open until 2am. You can definitely hear the music and singing from the rooms. If you are a... More

We stayed at the Woodpecker Lodge for five nights. It is located very well - you have to walk more or less around the corner and are at Kuchings' waterfront. You reach the guesthouse by a steep step - if you are not able to carry your luggage, they will help you. Our room was tiny - but we enjoyed... More

Stayed here for two nights. Could hardly sleep due to the loud music from downstairs. The rooms are tiny but clean. The staff is very friendly. No breakfast availible. The location is not the best, quite a long walk to the city center. Down the street on the opposit side of the busy street is a great restaurant. Wouldn't stay... More

Stayed here for 3 nights. For 3 nights, I don't had enough sleep because of the noise. But all are in good conditions. From here we can walked to waterfront, and also to the statue of cat. The owner was very friendly.

I stayed in this Hotel as I need easy access to city center and the location is excellent. Kuching Waterfront is just a short walk away. The hotel itself is located above a karaoke pub and the insulation is not that great but it is no issue for me as I can sleep in most extreme noise. But maybe for... More

Exterior was not very appealing. Price was reasonable considering we only wanted a very basic accommodation. The twin room was clean and has its own bath, a small television and air condition. Wifi was intermittent. Slightly noisy at night (but I can sleep in any situation) . The main reason I felt happy and therefore recommending the lodge is…it was... More

Stayed here for 3 nights. The lady who runs it (together with her kids) is very helpful and friendly. Although the room that we stayed in is small, it was enough for me and my friend as the room is very clean (which is what is important to me). Location is near waterfront and the iconic statue of cats is... More
