Mr D's B and B

In the heart of Chinatown

What we say: 4 stars

Situated in the heart of Chinatown on Jalan Carpenter, this is the ideal location from which to explore Kuching. Mr D, the owner, whose real name is still a mystery to us, is a mine of information and his staff are really friendly, with a good grasp of English. We found them one night entertaining a solo traveller, so if you're feeling a bit travelled out and want some company from some friendly locals, this is definitely the place to come.

As with many of the hostels in Kuching, many traditional Iban decorations adorn the walls but here what's especially fascinating are the old photos of indigenous communities that Mr D has hanging up in the communal area. There is also a great outside patio space on which to while away an evening or two chatting and drinking local rice wine.

The rooms here are about average in size and unusually, there are lockers available for those staying in the eight-bed dorm. A light breakfast is included in the room rate.
