Planet Borneo Lodge

Planet Borneo Lodge (PBL), the B&B with an attitude, is a hidden resort smack in the middle of the city that feels just like home. 

Nestled in a quiet residential area along the famous stretch of road known as “Lorong Park” which means “Park Lane”, in 'the Hills' neighbourhood of Kuching, PBL offers cozy, clean and safe accommodation for its guests.

PBL positions itself very differently from other lodging houses in Kuching as it is a beautiful detached residential house featuring a huge compound and a tropical garden. Its new main feature is the Longhouse Lounge with a dip pond surrounded by a beautiful jungle landscape.

Mainly offering dormitory style accommodation, Planet Borneo Lodge also has two family rooms in its inventory. It is within walking distance to restaurants, eateries, supermarkets and sundries. It’s ambience feels more like a home than a hotel.

It is definitely the hotel with the nicest and friendliest staff.  It is a cozy chilled-out place, with beanbags, tv, computer and kitchen for the guests' comfort. Rooms are like a hostel but clean and nicer than your average hostel fare. It’s a five minute walk from the city centre and the sights. As a bonus, all the guests also got on well with each other too.

Planet Borneo Lodge features friendly & helpful staff, a big living area with a kitchen you can cook in, a washing machine and clothes-drying area, space for relaxing - including in and around a small pool with jungle landscaped surroundings -  generally a gentle, laidback vibe.

It offers a nice change from the normally dodgy ones you always tend to encounter on a shoestring holiday.

While you are there, do encourage the Manager Bryan to break out his wok and cook you some of his amazing and mouth watering chicken rice and his famous cakes.
