This hostel is in a fantastic location in Kuching. Our room was very spacious and comfortable, bathrooms were clean and with good showers. It is very convenient to have the outdoors/adventure company downstairs to help plan your trips. They were great value and offer loads of options. The best thing about this hostel is the rooftop bar! The decor is... More

Sadly nothing special (not even considering a vaguely lowish cost). Breakfast was simple, rooms nice, the sheets were to die for to be fair (and I can't believe I just wrote that!!). The people working here were strangish although very lovely (at times). We weren't greeted greatly upon arrival and when we left a couple of things in the room... More

Stayed there in march for a night. while the place is decent looking and you see some effort into the place. There were 2 things that really made my stay quite a nightmare. 1) Cleanliness. The room we stayed in was a little dusty and had a smell. we knew something is just not right. Being backpackers we didn't mind.... More

We had a very good stay here. They know a lot about the parcs around Kuching and it was easy to organise everything with them.

I stayed here with my husband and we absolutely loved it. The owner is fantastic and took time out to drop us to the museum and make sure we had visited everything Kuching had to offer before we left. Tiger behind the bar was awesome, guiding us to the best noodles and always there for a jungle de brief. We... More

Everything you need from a hostel-it's clean, great staff, awesome rooftop bar, bikes for rent, decent sized room, loads of places to chill and read. Don't know why people have a problem with the breakfast-all you can eat toast on thick brown or white bread? Fresh fruit? Cereal? Great! We had stayed elsewhere in kuching before going to Bako NP...
