Miri's best hostel
What we say:
There is quite literally nothing to dislike about Dillenia Guesthouse and it is perhaps Miri's best hostel. It has a central location and the owner has made a huge effort to make the place feel homely. Yes, it's the slightly more expensive backpacker option in Miri, but this is more than justified considering the owner, Mrs Lee's, helpfulness. Nothing is ever too much to ask and her friendly demeanour brightens up many a weary traveller's day. The dorms are basic, with bunk beds and the odd bedside table. The private rooms are smallish but again, tastefully decorated and comfy to boot. Breakfast is included -- basically toast and fruit -- although they do have a range of good quality teas. The communal area is dotted with pictures of the dillenia flower and hanging on the walls are beautiful quilts, handmade by Mrs Lee. It's a well set up space with a separate washing up area; its small size makes it easy to meet other people. There is a telly with a selection of DVDs or be more sociable and pull out one of the board games tucked in the corner. WiFi is free, as is use of the two computers, and there are a few guidebooks on the shelf for those needing to plan ahead. Bathroom and shower area are clean and there are separate cubicles/toilet booths for men and women, which means ladies don't have to get annoyed when fellas forget to lift the lid. Already a favourite with backpackers, booking is recommended in months June through September.
