The hostel had a good buzz about it and everyone is very friendly. It was very clean and well presented and the communal areas were great.

The private room with ensuite was great and felt like a hotel within the room. The best hostel we've stayed in.

Pretty nice place that’s stylish and clean, if not a bargain. Euro/Asian styling, fresh paint, nice furniture with clean lines, rooms with wooden slider “window” to hallway with shared baths. AC in each room. Short walk away from the center of the action. The worst part of this B&B is the breakfast; with only white bread, a toaster, kaya paste, and butter and tea/coffee – but this is typical of many places in Malaysia that include breakfast.

Lodge 121 is clean and the staff are very friendly and helpful. Rooms are comfortable, basic and good value for money. Snacks are cheap from the tuck shop and Kuching Town centre is a short walk away for great local food. The atmosphere in the hostel is very laid back and it is a good place to meet people over breakfast or drinks in the evening. All in all, very pleasant.

Kuching seems to be most backpackers first stop for touring southern Borneo, used as a base for many day trips & easy access to Bako National Park. When staying here I'd highly recommend using Lodge 121 as your 'home away from home’.
I’d already spent a few months backpacking & was secretly looking forward to a few luxuries - especially between mosquito infested National Park dorms. Lodge 121 really does offer it all for a reasonable price. The hostel (or B&B as they call it) has a funky vibe spread across three open planned levels with varying room types (all with A/C included) & super comfy beds!! Free Wi-Fi /phone & computer access - a necessity here as everything in Borneo needs to be booked ahead. Super clean common areas with free tea/coffee all day, free toasts and spreads for breakfast, canteen of drinks/beer/rice wine for sale. Offer free secure luggage storage, their own escorted day tours (which I’d heard great review of) & the team love love love to offer their knowledge of the area! Henry the Manager seems to be bursting with excitement to help anyone that asks.
Kuching is a surprisingly small city, this hostel is just 3 mins away from a very popular restaurant called Junk, a supermarket (best of seen in Asia so far!! probably because it sells Vegimite), a few bars, shops and just 5 mins from the waterfront.
I actually feel ill from a tummy bug picked up in Indonesia & had to spend 2 weeks recovering when I first arrived. What you’d imagine to be a very frustrating situation turned out to be quite bearable because of my stay here & the oh so helpful staff! The team (Rajesh, Jair & Zul) offered me; transportation to the hospital/doctors, information on the local clinics, to collect lunch/dinners to ensure I was eating & even checked in on me throughout the day to see if they could help in anyway. Top knotch customer service.
If you are looking for a roudy/boozy hostel then this probably isn’t the ideal place. Seems most people’s itineraries are for full day activities, so if you want to ensure a good night’s sleep this is your place. Enjoy!

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the 2 or 3rd Level.

I went there with my bing gang of friends. about 30ppl. I love there so much because of the modern design. I can feel i stay at home at there. It is awesome and also free coffee,tea and breakfast. Every corner give u different feeling such as study corner, tv room and dining area which can let u all chit-chat. The room is comfortable and so warmed. will be back!!!
