We left a clean but impersonal hotel to stay at the Marco Polo and we're glad we did. The owners and staff keep the place clean, fresh breakfast varies daily while you sit on a small porch and exchange stories with other travelers. Their internet is a little weak but the owners are wonderful at sharing trekking info, affordable destinations,... More

I was intending to stay for 2 nights, and ended staying for 2 weeks! Marco Polo is the most comfortable, cleanest, and friendliest place I have stayed in. Not only it's a convenient to the bus stops, restaurants and shops, but the staff and the people I met certainly made my stay worthwhile. They provide a good breakfast - Georgette... More

The guesthouse was such a nice surprise to find. The staff was so helpful and lovely. The room was cheap but efficient. And not too far from the center. Definitely the place to stay if you are on a budget and want peace and quiet. Laundry facilities are available and the breakfast is served so early that you can get... More

I had a nice stay in Marco Polo in the past 3 nights. The hostel is very clean and tidy, simple but tasty breakfast is served every morning. Samuel and his staff are very nice, helpful and informative. Marco Polo is near the major spots in Kuching, as well as the restaurant. It is sad to me to leave here... More

I've been to Kuching thrice in recent months for work, and once I found Marco Polo I never went anywhere else. Sam and Georgette run a tight ship, ably assisted by Druv et al. The place is peaceful, but the constant trickle of guests arriving means that it's never dull and one gets to meet interesting people with interesting stories... More
