Really comfortable rooms, awesome staff, good location, Wi-Fi is very good, the cafe is nice. The bathrooms are clean but separate. The place was unbelievably good value for money. Maybe a bit too loud at times in the night, but you got to live the spirit. Loved the place.

Me and my travel partner had a tough first night. My card was being declined and he had left his bag in a taxi. No money or way of paying. The staff and local customers in the bar were EXTREMELY helpful, and I can't thank you enough!!! Went out of their way to help us, which really made our first... More

We stayed here for 3 nights in the dorm room and had a great experience. Everyone working here was so helpful with everything from booking us taxis, helping us plan day trips, storing luggage etc. Rooms were big, clean and had decent aircon, a big locker. There's a bar with couches and good pizza downstairs where both locals and travelers... More

I stayed in the dorm, which had small lockers, 24 hour aircon, and comfortable bunk beds at a very cheap price. the bar downstairs has really cheap... More

I stayed for two nights with my boyfriend. The place is nice. It costs us RM 48 per night because the price changed in september. It is a very friendly place and it is clean. There is a bar in the basement where you can even drink your own drinks if you want, but we did not do it. We... More

I stayed for one night, and booked a different backpacker at the waterfront the next day, But upon checking out I decided there was absolutely no need to move. The place is warm, with wooden flooring and clean bright room, and not to mention at RM40 for a double room. Price wise, it was great! I dont usually go for... More

You have to love this place, staff is amazing, so friendly and willing to help. There is a bar in the basement where you can even drink your own drinks if you are on low budget. Rooms are very clean and air-conditioned, there are lockers and enough of electricity plugs. The location is also fine, there is a lot of... More

Very clean, very friendly stuff, cheap beer, loads of food and drink opportunities around. 8-bed-dorm is huge and with it's own locker. Wifi is sometimes good and sometimes poor. Breakfast as usual with toast, jam and even Kaya spread. Best what you can get for this price!!

You gotta love this B&B! Located at the heart of Kuching, Malibu Lifestyle offers one of the best priced budget stay for backpackers or those on budget, Trust me, with USD8 a night, what you get is a bed, air-con, breakfast, shower with heater and friendly and 'warmfamily' welcome. Aside from the beer being so cheap that's a plus point.
