Step into our world of heroes, located in the heart of Kuching city centre. Spend the night with your favourite heroes all under one roof and experience a fun and comfortable stay, only at Hero Hostel.
The room is clean and simple. The staff is friendly and helpful. She provided us with guides on where to go around town. The host replies fast to messages and emails and fulfill my request. Internet speed is also good. There is a pub downstairs, so you can go down to have a drink and listen to live band.
Place is clean and decent. We came at a low peak season, so there were no other guests in the hostel: didnt need to share the toilet which is great. Toilets were clean and had water heater. Lionel the host was really nice and accommodating to our requests. He allowed us to check out late and take a final shower before departing to the airport at 5pm for our 7pm flight, which we really appreciate! :) We were provided with small towels and our room was given a quick clean daily. Interesting decor, can see that Lionel has a love for superhero comic characters, and he put in a lot of effort to make each room stand out with each superhero persona, i.e., ours was Spiderman themed, he gave us spiderman towels, there was a 'fake' spidey cupboard and a 'spidey' hanging from the ceiling as well. Location was very central, took us about 5-10 mins to get anywhere, night time might be a bit noisy with The Cottage pub right below our hostel. Wished there were more 'shelves' and 'cupboards' to hang and put our clothes/bags instead of leaving it on the floor. Our room had damp smell after a day or two due to the wet towels or clothes hanging around. Also, you need to walk 3 floors up to reach the hostel and the pathway is quite dark.
I had a wonderful stay in Hero Hostel. The host and staff are very friendly. The room and the toilet is always clean. There are laundry shop, supermarkets, shopping malls and restaurants within walking distances. The only downside is that it might get a bit noisy at night as there's a karaoke/ bar downstairs.
The host contacted me prior to my stay, much to my surprise. Host wanted me to feel comfortable coming to their place which I did. Host provided a walk through of all the amenities that exist around his place. One note though ... hostel is located at the topmost floor of the building. Those coming with heavy bags may need to come prepared to climb the flight of stairs.
