    Hidden Gem of Kuching City Centre”

    Hornbill's Nest is a hidden gem of Kuching City Centre. It is highly recommended for those who wanna keep a low budget, yet to have a very comfortable stay, close to Kuching's places of interest (e.g. Borneo Cultures Museum, The Ranee Museum, Fort Margherita, Plaza Merdeka, The Waterfront, Main Bazaar, The Baruk, etc). The mattress was of high quality ones, where u move and u won't wake up the person sleeping next to you. Very clean toilet, overlooking the Saint Thomas Cathedral, water heater with lots of shampoo and showergel for the travellers. The hair dryer is of high quality salon-grade. May, the receptionist lady is always very helpful and attentive to our needs. Most importantly, they have the water filter (Cuckoo) where u can get a hot, cold, or room temperature water to refill your bottles. My suggestion, take the upper levels, best to avoid the ground floor. People in the past reviews complaint about the floor made of wood where u can hear people walking on the corridor. But, I have to tell you, this occurence reminded me of the original longhouses which were made of wood. Try not to stomp on the floor, walk softly like the natives did. Have fun and experience it authentically. These are the expensive and rare 'ironwood' you are walking on - localized only in Borneo. I will definitely come back again, and would highly recommend friends and family to stay here.

    Together we save our planet by using less water and electricity. I brought my friends stay at Hornbill's Nest lodge and experience an amazing get-together at the rooftop. If you have children, I dont recommend you here. It is best for backpacker or couple. Privacy is taken care of. The receiptionist help us a lot and serve us with great hospitality. Here, they got everything you need to stay. If you are lazy to go outside, they have a kitchen and water filter. A famous one on that ❤️ I am a happy customer. Will be going again soon ❤️
