The lodge itself is located near Waterfront and lots of other interesting places. Clean. Safe. The staffs are very cheerful and helpful. The room is not bad for its price. Very quiet and relaxing place to be. Wifi is ok ok lah. Been here many times already. Overall, good! Only thing that matter is pest control. But it pretty obvious... More

If you're looking for somewhere to sleep, on a budget, and you are not looking for space or luxury, then this is great for you. The rooms are clean, have good hot showers, a comfortable bed, and air conditioning. Importantly my room was also clean of insects. The staff are incredibly friendly and will organise activities, suggest good local restaurants,... More

This nice budget hotel, located very near to the centre of activities, but far enough to don't be in the crowd, is clean, with pretty small rooms but well organised and wo fi working well. The hotel himself is ok, but the 5 bubbles comes out to me because of Lynn and Oliver. Even if they are not permanently at... More

Loved staying here for three weeks while we were in Kuching. The manager spent a while telling us about all the things to see and how to get there cheap. I was planning on spending a lot to do the trips but with his help I saved £100's Would defo stay again :)

Found this little lodge randomly one day and decide to stay a night out in Kuching town. The place itself is hard to find at first as it's located right above a night club. The Lodge, to be honest, quite different than what you saw in the website. But for the rate given, it's a decent backpackers lodge. First appointed... More

I stayed here thinking that I may not interact with many people which I was sad about but the owners made a huge effort to keep it comfortably social. I stayed her for about 10 days which went so fast. I plan to come back as soon as I can. The room was clean and neat, the bed was comfortable... More

Reasonable budget option that could be a lot better with a decent clean and some attention to detail. Staff were extremely friendly and at $RM69 for a single room with hot shower it is good value. My room wasn't clean - lots of dust and cobwebs especially in the fan. Some of the other rooms looked better. Also note this... More

Although the noise a downside of staying here, the upside is the owners of the Woodpecker lodge really go out of their way to make you feel a home and get you involve in things. They certainly made me feel involved and went above and beyond during my stay. At various times they came to check if I needed anything... More
