Helpful staff, very good location, semi-clean bathrooms, spacious AC dorms, a very nice rooftop bar (with happy hour), good breakfast & a chilled out lobby. You can use computers (you have to pay for them)

Stayed here for three nights; awesome and probably the best in Kuching for a backpackers lodge (I have stayed at a few others near Singgahsana). The staff are very friendly & helpful (special shout out to Zam & Nor). Best thing about this lodge is the ROOFTOP BAR/LOUNGE. The breakfast is simple but the decorations are perfect and very lively.... More

Nice stay in this backpackers hotel...but not only for backpackers! :) lovely people, helpful staff...nice atmosphere. We had a double room with shared toilets and showers, but everything was really clean ! Nice reception area, with the possibility to borrow books. The rooftop terrace is nice and is possible to have something to drink at reasonable price. Breakfast is decent.

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.
