A GREAT place to stay for budget travelers! The room I booked (a single room) was clean and comfortable. They even have a nice wooden multi-hanger stand and a shelf; it's very convenient! For RM30 a night, it's well worth the price paid.
The 3 toilets are clean (the toilet rolls never ran out) and don't worry about the shared bathrooms because there are 3 of them.
It is near to everything: the Kuching Waterfront, the post office, the various museums, shopping mall (Plaza Merdeka), bus stand (there's no sign that it's a bus stand but it's near the mosque), taxi stand. In short, VERY convenient. Next to the hotel is a Chinese eatery and a few steps away is 7-Eleven. I could go on and on. There's water cooler for your refill your bottles, coffee and tea for your enjoyment, and bread and jam for a simple breakfast. Totally backpackerly good!
Bravo, guys at Backpacker's Stay! Loved it and I will definitely be staying there again. Without a doubt.
P/S: The only downside is the noise made by other guests but if you don't mind the "liveliness" this place is great. Also, thank you, Lee and your other friend, for the warm hospitality and great job! Also thank the friendly kakak who helps keep the place clean,
