We were planning staying just for the festival but later on we prolonged for 8 more days. Its one of the cheapest place in Kuching with one of the best vibrant also.

Our family spent a week in Franky's care, in which time she devised the most magnificent, the most magical mystery tour we could imagine. The Nook is a safe, comfortable and very affordable home in the heart of Kuching, but it is Franky's magnificent heart and her intimate knowledge of the nature, culture and people of Sarawak that, if you...

Upon our arrival we were met by the owner who seemed nice enough and were shown to our rooms and were told she would bring blankets etc later when she'd washed them. She never brought them. Our room was small with two twin bunk beds, the sheets were dirty and there was rubbish on the floor. There was no privacy... More

I spent four nights at Nook. The guesthouse is in a good location, with restaurants and the river a few minutes walk away. The best part of 'Nook' was the manager, Frankie. I found her so welcoming and helpful. Thank you Frankie for a fantastic, memorable trip:O)) I saw some other reviews here said they did not have keys to... More

The location was ok. The standard room we stayed in was clean but very very small. Basically a mattress on the floor with walls around it and since the walls didn't go all the way to the ceiling and no windows it's more like a box than a room. There's a lock on the door to the room but we... More

I stayed at The Nook for 7 nights, from 9 July 2013 to 15 July 2013. It is basically a no frills guesthouse much like the budget airline I took to fly to Kuching, You get what you pay for and to ask for more would be a tad unreasonable and unfair to the owner who does not charge you... More

If I were reviewing the staff, Nook would get a better rating, but as I’m reviewing the guesthouse, I can’t honestly give it more than two stars. My boyfriend and I came to Kuching for the RWMF and booked a deluxe double room at Nook for the week we were in town, at 60 rm/ night. Coming from Penang, where... More
