Description

The Hostelz.com Review

Dillenia Guesthouse is an excellent hostel. It is spacious, clean, and well kept, and the hostel owner is extremely friendly and helpful with any questions that you have. Wi-Fi throughout the hostel is decent and the hostel uses a keycard entry system for added security.

The Location

The hostel is located approximately three kilometres away from the main bus station and around ten kilometres away from the airport. Outside Dillenia Guesthouse, there is a variety of restaurants at cheap prices and several mini marts only a one or two minute's walk away.

Rooms and Bathrooms

The six-bedroom dorm is roomy enough and is fitted with air conditioning, so it is not too warm. There is one plug socket per bed, however they are at the bottom of the wall. Therefore, if you are on the top bunk, there isn’t one directly next to you. The beds themselves are pretty comfortable and you are provided with both a blanket and a sheet to sleep if you are cold or hot. The beds are also quite shaky, so if the other person in your bunk moves around, you will generally feel the bed moving.

There are two showers and two toilets, one each for men and the other for women. These are very clean and in an excellent condition. The showers are also hot and shower gel and shampoo is provided. A hairdryer is also by the sink in the bathroom if you wish to use that.

Common Spaces

The communal area is open and spacious with plenty of seating available or many guests. There is a kitchenette with basic self-catering facilities. Free tea, coffee, and water are available throughout the day, and in the morning, toast with butter and jam is provided. In addition, there is a TV in the communal area as well as a selection of games and books to be used at your leisure. The atmosphere of the hostel is friendly and welcoming. The owner is as well, she made sure we knew how to get to where we were heading next and answered all of our questions regarding tourist attractions or any other matter.

Summary

Dillenia Guesthouse is a lovely hostel. It is very well managed and maintained by the excellent owner, who makes you feel right at home and we enjoyed our stay there. For anyone coming to Miri, we definitely recommend Dillenia Guesthouse as a place to stay.
