Basic rooms (still great value for money), but everything lovely and clean, and all staff really friendly - everything you want from a good hostel! The bar/lounge on the roof is a great place to hang around and entertain yourself in the evening (or even through the day while it's raining), and the breakfast is basic but filling. They also...

Great hostel type accommodation. My boyfriend and I had a private room which was clean, basic, but dark as there are no windows for rooms with private bathrooms. Top area was great and made the stay worth it. Laid back living room atmosphere. Breakfast was basic but all you would need out of a free breakfast. Staff was helpful. Overall... More

Rooftop bar is a great chill out place. Comfortable beds with sheet and blanket. Air con working well. Can hire a towel for RM2. Breakfast is basic but good. Comprises of tea, coffee, milk, bread, cornflakes, watermelon. On the downside No electrical socket near the beds. Only 2 in the whole dorm. Shared bathrooms are grim. They smell and toilets...

I stayed in this guesthouse for 4 nights from 10 December to 13 December 2014 in Kuching. I booked this place because I was attracted to the bar and the price of the twin room and nothing else. The bar looks great because the people in the photos look relaxed facing the waterfront. Checked into this place, realised that my... More

Just spent 4 nights at Singgahansa, what a great place to stay. The whole place has a great atmosphere, especially the upstairs bar, and the staff were all friendly and helpful.

We used Singgahasana as home base for our visit to Borneo, making day or multi-day trips from there. We stayed in both the family room with ensuite downstairs (which was a little dim, with some street noise, no other guest noise) and a family room with shared bath on the second floor (which was brighter but had some street noise...

There is a charming rooftop bar where the visitors get to drink, chill, eat, play pool and darts, reading and social over there.
