I could say that it's a tourist spot (people from abroad). Good location; easy access to other interesting spots. Friendly and helpful staff. Love the roof top bar but beverages lack of variety. The room is ok (twin bed but tight)..same goes to the cleanliness. Design and decoration; a little bit messy. I love this lodge anyway ;-)

We've been to Singgahsana Lodge in February. We had the "honymoon-room", witch was a bit more expensive than the other rooms, but quite perfect: big, really nice interior, good (privat) bathroom. The reception area is nice and the rooftop terrace spectacular. Breakfast is ridiculous, shouldn't call it "breakfast" at all: 2 slices of toast, horrible jam (or at least a... More

We stayed here to tour around Kuching before heading to BAKO Natl Park. The rooms seem fine--love the A/C-- but they are dark if you are looking to do any reading. The reminder signage throughout is a bit naggy. Showers were good for the most part--sometimes water stops for no reason-- but could use a few more hooks in shower... More

Our 3 night stay at singgahsana lodge was a pleasant surprise. I have to admit the basement room was a tad dark and dingey but the quiet allowed our first full nights kip so far in Malaysia. The staff were welcoming and provided a wealth of knowledge and always had a smile on their face.

We stayed at the Singgahsana hostel for 3 nights and overall it was good. It is very clean, the common areas are lovely, roof-top bar is great, and the location is perfect. The guys who work at the travel agency downstairs were really helpful and the bar tender was nice, but we found the rest of the Singgahsana staff to... More

This hostel is in a great location by the corner of the river and just off Jalan Carpenter, the staff were friendly and welcoming, the entry hall gives an instant positive impression and the topfloor bar could be one of the best backpacker drinking holes I've ever been in. I know at least two couples who moved there from other... More

Singgahsana Lodge is a great place to stay while in Kuching. We stayed in the Honeymoon Room, very spacious, en suite bathroom with a great hot shower. They did not clean the room during the two days that we stayed, which was ok for he short time we were there. All in all the whole place was very clean.

We stayed here for 3 nights and absolutely loved it! Although, strongly recommend not staying on the ground floor as it is very humid. The atmosphere was great, the prices were a great value... Recommend booking one of the excursions!! Also the rooftop bar is great. Highly recommend!!

We stayed at Singgahsana Lodge for almost a week intotal as part of our recent trip to Borneo. The lodge was a convenient, well-located base for travel around Kuching. We stayed in one of the nicest rooms they had, with en-suite bathroom. The room was large and clean and of very decent quality. The bed was very comfortable. Unfortunately, breakfast... More

stayed here several times.. perfect location, nice and clean. The staffs here are friendly. You can choose private room or dorm. They have a rooftop bar where you can hang out and chill out or watching TV. The price may not be the cheapest one but highly recommended to stay here..
