A great place for us as we stopped over in Miri to see old friends. A fun atmosphere and good location, Mrs Lee was very efficient and friendly. The breakfast was a simple one of toast and local fruit. Nothing fancy, but good and comfortable to stay in.

Rooms, amenities are sufficient for short stay. Location of the guest house is strategic as it is walking distance to the Millennium Plaza. Arrangement for pickup to your tourist attractions could also be arranged via guest house owner which is helpful

We made a reservation with Mrs Lee over Facebook and she responded very quickly. Arrived to find this guesthouse very homely and clean, which was really nice coming from a home stay in Mulu. Overall a great place for backpackers and even families!

Dillenia is centrally located (MR 15 to bus termial and 20 to airport both about 15 mins away). Comfortable bed in 6 bed dorm but not much room when everyone's luggage is on the floor but bathrooms are very big and very clean. Nice chill out area with tea and coffe, 2 computers and a pile of DVDs. everyone either... More

This is a very good choice for a budget stay in Miri. I stayed here during a transit to Mulu and enjoyed my brief stay in Miri. This is a little bit hard to find until you get very close, it is up a stairway above some other businesses but it is signed so look for the sign on the... More

Mrs Lee wasn't there when i checked in, but there was already a letter waiting for me with all instructions. I got in touch with two other people staying in the hostel and... More

We were able to make a reservation via phone (even tho the manager was in Kuching and organised everything for us from there) and check in went smoothly! Staff is super friendly, premises clean and we got transport organised through management as well. We stayed a total of 2 nights, one before and one after our trip to Mulu National... More

Perfect...clean rooms, spotless bathrooms, functional wifi, great location, decent breakfast, free tea, coffee and drinking water, luggage storage... And that's without mentioning Mrs Lee who can advise on further travel, arrange local transport and is just the most warm,friendly and efficient guesthouse owner on the planet. If you are staying in Miri then stay here.

This guesthouse is so friendly. Mrs Lee is a wonderful host. Right from the moment I booked she answered all my questions, offered really helpful advice, investigated bus options for me and went well beyond her job to make me feel welcome. I won't forget her hospitality. The guesthouse is in a great location, air-con dorm, very comfortable with a... More

Me and a friend, we spent here one night and a long day after. The Hostel is clean, the dormitory spacious enough, toilets and shower are clean and they provides all the basic staff you need. Wi fi works well, the management is friendly and smiling and the atmosphere among travellers is relaxed and easy going. Breakfast is basic, but... More
