This place is a wonderful oasis in Kuching. The people are extremely friendly and devoted to their work. They help out whenever you have questions and can make loads of suggestions regarding trips and activities in and around kuching. The facilities are very clean and well maintained. The veranda is a wonderful place to chill and enjoy the delicious breakfast!

We stayed 3 nights, one night in Bako National park and an additional night at the hostel. From our arrival the owners have been very friendly and hospitable and made us feel right at home. The room had no window (most buildings here seem to be deep terraced) but had air con and was very nice and clean. The bedrooms... More

This place is definitely value for money. I took a family room and it was spacious and just nice for the three of us. The room was well kept and clean. Even the shared bathrooms were clean and that was very important for us. i would definitely recommend it to anyone who's looking for a comfortable place on a budget.

Marco Polo is a great budget option base for Kuching. The rooms are shared bathroom but are very clean. The owners are very friendly and the breakfast is a great starter for the day - especially the coffee.
