We stayed here for 10 days and really enjoyed it! The location is perfect - right across the road from the beautiful Sarawak River and easy walking distance (less than 5 minutes) to restuarants, shops and the bus station. The lodge is really tastefully decorated with a big common room downstairs full of coffee tables and cushions to hang out...

One of the best place I've ever stayed. It's nice, friendly, clean, well placed and pretty cheap. The team is very helpful, and even the - simple - breakfast is included. For sure I'll come back there if I come back to Kuching.

Being a lone female traveller can sometimes be daunting, especially when you arrive in a new country and have to jump in a cab with a strange man who you've never seen in your life. You have to put your trust in your own instincts and the people around you. But when I arrived in Kuching I didn't feel this...

Loved this place. Its really fun but not clique-y, no weirdos just friendly nice people. Staff are nice and give good tips and advice.

My friend and I stayed at Wo Jia Lodge in December 2010 during our winter vacation in Kuching. It's not the fanciest place on earth, but it's got a lot of character.
