Superficially decorated, the rooms, toilets and bathrooms are very small and the wall of the toilet at first floor is not fully covered. The paint on the bedroom wall peeled off, TV is not working. Apparently the trendy decoration could not make the guesthouse shine. However, location wise, this guesthouse is near to the major attraction of Kuching city. Self-service... More

We stayed in a queen room which is about as big as the bed plus 3'X6' standing room. You get what you pay for here which isn't much. Bed was literally just a box spring with no mattress. A.C works but is extremely loud for some reason. Made us chose between getting to sleep in quiet or being cool. Walls... More

Actually not as bad as some reviews may suggest. Toillet ok, shower ok. Noise in night is a problem, especially in the ground floor. We stayed in a room next to the reception and staff had something like a party there. Loud music (and a bad one) all night, even after I said them, if they can be more silent.... More

The room is small and smell terrible. That is not the big problem. Before we sleep, there comes a big black spider. We asked to change a room but there is only one left near the counter. What's worse, the room is very noisy. Both the sound of rain and air condition machine is over our head. Besides, the music... More

well where do I start, first off, do not be fooled by the modern exterior of this 'guesthouse' inside it is very minimal and very dated, I'll start with the room, overall the room itself wasn't all that bad, we were located right next to reception, which at first we were really happy about as we did not have to...

As I did my internship in Kuching, I stayed there for about 3 months. This was the cheapest place I found and I have to say that I was not dispointed.

I enjoyed stayed there for 2 days. staff is nice and flexible - with some negotiation, managed to switch room without extra charge. to be note, the single room is really2 small. you need to get the deluxe one. you can go in/out with access card anytime. brekfast is basic. common room has tv/DVD.

I should admit that the Drop In is well designed and decorated. Location is good and value for money. The staff is also very nice. Our double room feels a little tighten and the bathroom/toilet is shared (Ok for us since few guests there during our stay). We will still give them 4 stars rating if everything just goes like...
