We stayed here for 8 nights as this was our base for all the trips we did around Kuching. The rooms are very clean and a good hot shower (which is very rare in Malaysia)! The "internet problem" is solved as they changed the router during our stay. Also the guy at the reception is very nice and helpfull. One...

We booked two rooms at Premium Stay and stayed there for 3 nights. The front desk staff and the owner and his Chinese wife are all very friendly and helpful. It was our first time in Kuching and they gave us tips and it was pouring outside and they loaned us their umbrellas without hesitation. The room is moderate size...

The staff Andy give us all the help on planning our tours. Thanks Andy... At night the hotel have no one at the reception counter when Andy shift finished. Only call bell is paste on the reception counter if anyone need anything just press the bell. This's the first time I come across with such service.

Very friendly service and the most comfy beds I've ever slept on. This is a budget hotel, so don't expect too many frills, but a nice place to rest your head after a hot day in Kuching. The front rooms are very noisy because of the traffic, but although I'm a light sleeper usually this did not bother me. The...

We stayed for one night after our visit to bako national park. It was very nice place for a cheap price and very convenient location in the centre. We would definitely come back. Clean, big room for the poor price and just two blocks to the water front.

The two guys who run this place are really friendly & helpful. They assisted us in planning our days in Kuching & allowed us to leave our backpacks in their office when we went to Bako National Park for a night (definitely recommend a trip to Bako!). They also arranged our transport to the airport. Our double room was spacious...

We stayed at Premium Stay Hostel for 3 nights in Kuching. The best thing was actually the service provided by Andy, who is at the reception from 9am - 6pm every day.
