Woodpecker Lodge Kuching, Sarawak: Where to Stay Comfortably on Budget in The Cat Town (The Review)

It wasn’t because I’ve claimed myself a cat lady when I decided to stay in Kuching for the longest period compared to the other cities I’ve visited during my Borneo trip.

Well, maybe it’s one of the reasons. However, I already planned to go to stay overnight at Bako National Park on my last day in the city. I didn’t really want to have a tight schedule during my trip this time, so I decided to book the accommodation in Kuching for 4 nights.

At first, I really wanted to have a nice and rather ‘fancy’ accommodations for the whole stay. You know, with elevator and everything. However, when I calculated the whole budget for 4 nights, the ‘fancy’ one would exceed my budget.

My other consideration is that I had to leave my big bag there for one night after I checked out, as I had to go to Bako. Before I made a booking, I dropped an email to some accommodation to confirm whether there’s any additional charge for luggage storage service.

Long story short, I ended up booking a room at Woodpecker Lodge in Kuching.

The Summary of My Borneo Trip: Where I’ve Been and Why I Chose Them

Hey, get ready for a long post!!

It’s been almost two weeks since I arrived back home from my Borneo trip. I swear I really wanted to write a post about this earlier, but darn the post-vacation blues situation is real over here.

Also, by the time I reached Sibu in Borneo, I got a problem with the keyboard on my laptop to the point I totally lost my desire to write. Now that I’m home, I’ve purchased yet another keyboard to smash. 😐

Well, since it took almost a month for me to explore Borneo on my own, this post won’t do the justice about what I’ve seen throughout my trip. I’ll create some more follow-up updates about each place I’ve been or how it’s been.

So, in this post I’ll be focusing on the where and the whys.
