Marco Polo's is one of those old-style, congenial guest houses that gets all the basics right. It is spacious, spotless, the mattresses are good, the bunk beds don’t wobble, there are plenty of bathrooms and a pleasant verandah in the back where much-better-than-you-could-hope-for breakfast is served. A kitchen too. It is located in a relaxed neighborhood on the edge of... More

The staff here is very friendly and helpful. Uncle there give us a lot of advices on where to eat and what to see. The room is cozy and tidy. Breakfast is included and very good. Tea is served all the day. This is a hostel makes Kuching more attractive.

What a wonderful place! We spent a week here while we were in Kuching, and the family was always helpful and full of great advice about places to see and cheap transport. The breakfast was always delicious and the guesthouse had a great, familial feel to it. One of our absolute favourites. As other reviewers have said, the only downside... More

My stay at this guesthouse was great! Very clean and tidy. It was quiet at night. It's located out of town but in a not so touristy place which for me was a good point. Staff were friendly and helped me find accommodation for my next stop. Breakfast was ample and varied. Highly recommended!

First, all of the positive comments you have read about this place are true. Sam and Gorgette (the owners) are incredibly friendly people and treat their guests really well. They went out of their way to make me feel at home and helped me organise tours, transportation - and just gave me a lot of useful information in general. The... More

Good location in china town close to good food hawkers. 20 min walk to the waterfront and bus station. Good breakfast. Good wifi. Sam was very helpful recommending places to visit. Enjoyed the terrace, sitting sharing a beer with other lovely travellors. Would happily recommend to friends.

Great location. The owners were very useful when I came to visiting the various national parcs. Plus, they showed us where the food market was, and we enjoyed excellent food there. The breakfast is amazing (fresh fruits, toasts, jam, peanut butter...). Beds in the dorm are great too Definitely a place to recommend!!!!

Great lovely hostel in New China town. Clean, Nice breakfast and very Nice people. IT is very hot everywhere Because iT is on the second Floor. Rooms have airco. Little far to the promenade but still Nice place and terrace. Nice coffee café in the street is Bing. To hang out for a while. Entree is around the corner
