Pleasantly surprised by the place. Clean sheets, bathroom and the whole place, in general. Staffs were very friendly and helpful. Transportations available for a quick tour of Kuching. I won't mind staying at this place again in the near future.

I really enjoyed my stay here. It has the perfect location within Damai Central which is the hub of all activity. The sea is right behind; Sarawak cultural village just opposite. Many food options within Damai Central and a 7-11 next door. The staff are all very friendly. I booked a single pod on the top so there was some privacy. Though I would have preferred if they have locks for the rooms and curtains that go all the way down. I was alone most of the days, but one day it was quite occupied. So privacy and quiet can be slightly disturbed then. Tends to get quite cold at night. Shared bathrooms, but are maintained clean. Was never an issue. Can't say though if it is fully booked. I also had a minor problem with a couple of ant attacks in my room. Also one night rats were going crazy on the roof- but if you sleep deeply should not be a problem. For 50 ringgit, it is a steal. With all 5-star priced resorts nearby. Damai Puri is just a few minutes walk, and Permai Rainforest is less than 5 minutes away. Security of items was not a problem as they provide a safe locker in your room for your stuff. Wifi was very good. I would recommend if you are looking for a cheap and convenient option.

Room Tip: Room on the top. A single pod if you are travelling solo.

Enjoyed my one night stay at BB bunkers. We stayed on a busy Saturday evening when a festival was taking place.
Very clean, modern open plan design which is interesting to look at, but not the best for sleep quality as there are potentially 20 or so others making noise in the same room as you!
Location is perfect- beach 20 metres away, Mount Santubong trail 15 min walk away, food outlets and shops within a few metres.
Each bed has a locked safe, good bathroom facilities, very clean, effective air con, comfortable beds. 50 ringgit each for a double bed.

Its like camping out, indoors!

This area, Damai Beach, is surrounded by high-priced resort hotels. BB Bunkers is a good budget alternative.

You could easily spend a week here, plenty to do in the area:
- Boat trips from Permai Rainforest Resort
- Walk or bike the trails along Mount Santubong
- Hugely popular Sarawak Cultural Village
- Sometimes there are open air concerts nearby
- Golf at nearby Damai Country Club (open to all, and very affordable)
- Walking along Mt Santubong, walking back along the road is no worries, there is a sidewalk (of sorts), and street lights all the way.
- Rent kayaks or mountain bikes nearby
- Next to a 7-11 for snacks, food court for lunches or dinners, or try one of the 5-7 better restaurants in the three resorts nearby.
- Nearby is Escobar club, with dinner and drinks. Below, and on the beach, another bar offers great views.

Bring: camera! your shower shoes, soaps and toiletries. They charge for a towel. Bring your breakfast needs. They provide hot and cold water, fridge, microwave, cups, utensils. They have umbrellas you can borrow.

Secret Tip...don't tell anyone! Next to the Bunkers is a 7-11. Their is no alcohol available there. However, diametrically across from 7-11 there is a souvenir shop. Inside the shop there is a cooler. Inside the cooler there is beer, 7MR/can. Do with this information what you will.

We all loved our stay here! We had the place to ourselves most of the stay, and it was so clean, quiet and comfortable! The shared/openness of the place was a little unsettling to start, having children to consider, but it was safe, secure and friendly, and we would return! Thank you to Farhah, Peter and Alfred for makin our stay great!

I had this whole place to myself. I booked through agoda and got a single pod at the top. Found the a/c to be a bit cold, so used my sleeping bag. There is a food court and 7-11 close by. There is also a dorm option which i didnt realise when booking online. Found the pod at the top to be warmer than below. They have an indoor clothesline in the bathroom, hot showers, free drinking water. I got the k15 bus from kuching to santabong village and then got a ride for the remaining 4km to here on the back of a scooter. To leave you can get a shuttle from cultural centre across the road earliest 1.15pm or the damai tourist beach resort next door at 9.15am. 12rm. I stayed here to do the mt sunabong trek. You can also do walks at the permai rainforest resort. Saw some little black monkeys there.

Located at Damai Central and just walking distance from the beach. A great place to chill with family and friends. The place is cosy with an amazing TV room for you to just relax. Reasonably priced with Mount Santubong behind for those adventurous enough to climb. Great place for a getaway with a convenience stall, bar and seafood restaurant conveniently located near BB Bunkers. Definitely recommended for those travelling in big groups and those that enjoys quite time for themselves =)
