          The place is way better than the pictures! The lady at reception is super friendly and gave us a lot of good tips about what to do in the city. The room is very comfy and the air-con makes the room temperature just perfect - not too cold, not too hot. The only downside is that the walls are very thin and if the person next door is noisy, you will hear everything.

          Located at top floor. Not suggest for those have big luggage. Restaurant near by, walking distance to waterfront, 24 hours coffee shop downstairs, pub. Near UTC, the famous seafood stall near by. Basic facilities as what we paid for. Is more secure and convenient if hero hotel can install digital door lock at main entrance.

          Worth the price :)”

          Suitable for short stay since we're only here for 1 night to explore the city. It's cheap and near to attractions and restaurants.

          Located in heart of the town”

          Love the location since it is in the town and easy to access to lot of place nearby. Our room located on second floor so it will be just nice. The heater and AC work perfectly. Got a common area to use and i like the superhero themes for each room. There is a pub located within the same row but still can sleep at night and the door is always lock. Very near to the shopping complex and also the famous top spot seafood in kuching where you just need to walk up to the place. value for money for those who not so picky to sleep.

          Pleasant stay for a private room in a hostel”

          Had a comfy stay here for a night at the wolverine room! Regina was super helpful n friendly. Towel was provided if needed. Clean room and creative decos. If you're a light sleeper, I wouldn't recommend staying at this hostel.

          Noisy”

          The 1st step to the room I was really disappointing. The room without window and look not nice or uncomfortable. The staff is very helpful. Location is prefect where .it located at the center of the town, you may access most of the interesting place by walk. The worst situation is there is pub down the building. The music play from 10pm till mid night at less 2am which is very noisy and you can't even sleep well the whole night. If you were the type of people can't stand with loud music pls don't be here.
