Helpful owners and stuff”

We enjoyed our short stay at Woodpecker Lodge before going to National park. It is in a good location as it's just walking distance to the Waterfront. Nearby there is a bus stop for the bus going to Bako National park. The room is clean and service is great. The owners and stuff are very helpful and polite. As cats owners ourselves we liked Fluffy and Ninja hanging around the reception area. Yes, you’re in a cat town. Far from home but feels as at home. We would like to stay here again.

Simple but memorable stay”

Looking back at my stay here sure brings a lot of memories for me back in the days at Kuching. I was a frequent visitor to this lodge before covid and moving back to Peninsular. The lodge really serve its purpose for travellers like me who need place to just rejuvenate, before making long journey to inner district of Sarawak. I was quite worried when the pandemic hit but to see this lodge still thriving to this day, I’m so grateful. Overall 10/10! Thank

The lodge located not too in the centre of waterfront, so it's far away that it's not crowded from people, and also not too far away, it's a walking distance to the popular places to visit. There are also a few hawkers centres around this lodge, so finding place for breakfast was not a problem

Wifi: stable and good Location: near Waterfront, GRAB RM11 to airport TV: 3 channels only but not a big deal Hotel: staircase, no lift. coffee/tea etc at the kitchen, not in the room. Room: one power socket available (another 2 are for air-cond and tv) Surrounding: Try the Nuromen (beef noodle) and RIA restaurant for the chicken penyet. Was allocated a room at top floor on 1st day but due to the setup (rooftop, facing sunset) the aircond doesn't feel cool enough, owner was kind enough to allow change to another room which is much better.

Cute cats, weird bathroom ”

The hostel itself was pretty good, and staff were helpful. The only weird thing is that the bathroom wall in the dorm is EXTREMELY close to the toilet so you don’t actually have any space for your legs when you sit down. Interesting design.... This led to me having to sit sideways on the toilet or use the bathroom near reception. Not a big deal but just found it funny. Also the dorm I stayed in didn’t have AC but it did have four fans.
