When I first arrived at Coco House, it looked as if it is in the middle of nowhere but fret not, the nearest mall, Bintang Mall is only about 10 mins walk away. Basically you can walk almost everywhere in town as Miri is not too big.
It has a restaurant (but it is quite hopeless). Rooms come with breakfasts & is served from 7am-10am but it may be late so if you are in a hurry the next morning, please make sure you alert them way before hand. The fare, suffice to say that it is edible.
Coco Dive Shop is also located there on the ground floor. Unfortunately, no comments from me as the 2 days that I was supposed to dive, the sea wasn't cooperative.
The dorm room, they come in 4 & 8 bunks & separated by gender, of course. The beds are comfy enough & they have a lockable 'chubby' just above one end of the bed for your use. Individual light & curtain within each bunk.
The dorm room is clean but the public area (toilet/shower) are not cleaned often. This should seriously be ratified. PL BRING YOUR OWN SHAMPOO & SOAP! Towel and blanket provided.
There is a shared living /pantry room with hot/warm water dispenser, a microwave, some cutlery & crockery (good enough for instant noodles & a cup of coffee), tea, sugar, a small fridge, dining table, TV, sofa and even a netbook for you to surf at no cost. Oh and there are also books & magazines that you can borrow.
I met a girl who stayed in the rooms. The room surprisingly doesn't come with TV. Come to think of it, it might be better just to get a dorm esp when there are a few of you.
