I stayed a little over a week at Singgahsana Lodge. This place does cost a bit more but I found it well worth the extra ringgit or two (I did look at a few other guest houses in town.) At first I didn't expect to stay as long as I did but I really enjoyed Kuching and this hostel. I... More

I stayed in the Double Ensuite room. It was comfortable and alright. Although I wished that the lights were a bit brighter as the room was quite dark despite me turning on all the lights. The aircon in my room was really noisy! I tried turning down the fan speed and temperature but the noise stayed. Perhaps it needs some... More

This place may be good for backpackers but not for couples or families. I'll keep it simple - Pros: Location, staff, security, bar on top floor, breakfast (but not of good quality) Cons: Old rooms, old stinky blankets in the rooms, rooms feel like jail cells, mold everywhere, mushrooms/fungi growing out of our walls, toilet didn't work upon arrival and...

I arrived alone in Singgahsana and the minute I arrived people were so friendly and chatting with me in such a lovely way. I felt really nice just right after checking in. First nights i stayed in a dorm room, which was clean and nice, bathroom are also just fine, especially for the price. Location is also worth mentioning, because... More

I only booked for 4 days but the location was so perfect and the staff so nice I never left the whole time plus with the bar on the roof I met lots of interesting people. There was a free breakfast on the roof also and it was another great way to meet travelers. I look forward to going back

The social area on the first floor is comfortable and clean with good WiFi and really nice decor. I'm in the female dorm which is slightly noisey due to the main road but really clean and comfortable with good air conditioning and reasonable size locker. The female only bathroom is also nice and clean with a hairdryer which is a... More

It's a no-frills hostel, shared bathroom but still comfy and clean. Suitable for single travellers or groups. My favourite is the bar at the rooftop. Really chill area with random furniture (some seats are actually car seats HAHAHA). Amazing food just 2min walking distance away and i'd recommend Green Hill Corner. The only downside is the number of power outlets... More

we've stayed for one night recently and i can say that the overall ambiance is nice. It's a free-shoe zone so you have to walk barefoot in the entire premise. The location of the hotel is excellent with just a few mins walk from the waterfront area and there's a stall selling street burger in front of the hotel and... More

The atmosphere and location certainly is attractive for backpackers. But for family with children, maybe not so convenient. Certainly not much facility to provide, even if you stay in the "family ensuite", as I did with my family.. The bathroom has no hook to hang towel or clothes, the shower hose was leaking (risk of hot water splash out) .... More
