“Great stay and helpful hosts”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 18, 2014

Even though it was the rainy season, we had a great time here. Our room was spacious (a nice change having just come from Singapore) and clean. Breakfast was served out on the balcony/terrace area and was tasty. The owners were extremely helpful and showed us how to catch the bus to the Fairy Caves and ordered us a taxi to go to the airport.

Upon recommendation from a friend, I chose this place to stay for a short 4D3N trip to Kuching. The stay had been nothing but pleasant and warm, thanks to the owners (husband and wife). Felt at home. With decent breakfast provided and the owners being helpful whenever you need anything; nothing I could ask for more. Looking forward to stay here again. :)

Great place to stay in kuching, was sad to leave. Rooms are big and very clean, not all come with windows but these that dont are quiet and cosy enough. Lovely veranda with good breakfest, good wifi. Might be a tad far from the city centre but location is good nonetheless. But best of all, the people who run the place! So friendly, helpful and informative. Was going to the shops a few times but then got engaged in conversation with Sam or his wife that would last half an hour at least! You meet great travelles in there as well, the place is very sociable yet you get your peace and quiet. Would definitely recommend MP and stay again myself!

A good backpackers place just outside the center of Kuching. The rooms are clean and the family like atmosphere makes you feel at home. The owners are super friendly and are willing to help you with everything. The breakfast included is not really special, but it gets you on the way. The location is not that good, being a 15 min walk to the center, but there are a few good places to eat in the same street.

Mr.Frank B,
Thank you for your review. Hope you're satisfied with your stay in our humble guesthouse.
As for our breakfast,we'd like to provide the more tastier we'd & the best we'd as everyone
has different tastes but the main focus is to make sure our guests' stomach/belly are fully
adequate for their hiking & tracking to Bako,Semenggong,caves,kayaking & outstation trips.
As for distance,though you may walk a bit more,we hope it's not exhausting to you. The advantage
to our location is that we've more to benefit in terms of cafes,restaurants,fruit-stores,supermarkets,money-exchange,banks,entertainment outlets,massage parlours,etc........
The next time your visit to Kuching is most Welcome as we want to make sure,'The guests are always right!'

Best Regards
& Wishes,
Sam,Jane,Druv & Staff.
