Mrs Lee is one of the nicest Persons that we met on our 5 week trip through malaysia and indonesia. She cared so much and was realy helpful at any time. From the Guest House its very easy... More

Dillenia Guest House is a family-owned budget accommodation that offers clean, simple & traveller-friendly environment. I think this place suits those of you travel bugs who prefer to feel 'home' while being away from your home =) I booked a single room via a simple phone call and online money transfer for booking purpose. Mrs.Lee, the owner, was very helpful... More

I don't have a single negative thing to say about this place! Wi-fi is super fast, Mrs. Lee (the owner) is super nice/helpful and full of amazing travel advice, bed is comfy, shower is warm and works well, etc. Price is very reasonable at 30 ringgits per peron (about 10$) for a dorm bed! You can even stay in a... More

This is one of my favorite hostels I've ever stayed at. When I first walked in I felt like home, which every traveler needs when on the road for a long time. The common room is painted in relaxing colors with many plants around and is a great place to hang out when not exploring all the cool places around... More

Wonderful clean, friendly and welcoming hostel run by the helpful and charming Mrs Lee. Extensive local knowledge and very proactive in helping organize trips, onward transportation and accommodation. Nothing is too much trouble. Highly recommended.

I highly recommend this guest house. Mrs. Lee, the owner, is incredibly helpful and delightful to talk to. She has all the answers to a traveller's questions and essential information regarding the myriad destinations in and around Miri (whether on foot, bus or plane) to visit. The guest house has a comfortable and laid back feel that is very relaxing.... More

One of the best places I've stayed. Great location, nice and clean, comfy dorm beds and good AC. Breakfast is better than other hostels in Malaysia. Mrs Lee is the best host you could ask for. Super friendly and helpful. She will tell you how to get where you need to go and recommend good places to eat. Somehow, she... More

We only stayed here one night, but it was really nice. The hostel owner is really friendly and helpful. She also organised a Minivan drive to Brunei for us. The facilities are clean and tidied up. The breakfast was simple, but nice. The wifi only worked on the actual computers.

This really is the best hostel I've ever stayed at! It's at a great location, the prices are good, it's clean, tidy and homey. Hot showers, a computer you can borrow for free, cheap taxi service to the airport and fresh fruit for breakfast are details that make it even better. But the best part is really the owner Mrs...
