Situated in the heart of Kuching City, just a five minute walk from the famous Kuching waterfront, Borneo Seahare Guesthouse offers comfortable, affordable accommodation in a location which makes the most of your visit.

Our family-run guesthouse offers a relaxing and safe environment from which to explore the beautiful and enchanting Kuching city.

As frequent backpackers and hostel users ourselves, our aim is to provide a hostel with all the facilities and personal touches we feel are important (we have stayed in some of the best and worst hostels in the world and have used our experience to create what we feel is the perfect environment).

Having made Kuching our home after falling in love with it years ago, we hope to share our love of this beautiful city and stunning surrounding areas with our guests.

We love meeting new people and hearing all the weird and wonderful experiences they’ve had around the world, and providing them with a safe and relaxed place to stay on their way to the next adventure. Many of our previous guests have become good friends and we regularly keep in contact with a lot of them.

We’re extremely proud of our guesthouse and will do our very best to make you feel welcome and to help you make the most of your time in Kuching.

We work hand in hand with various tour operators so you can always be sure we can find the right tour to suit you and your budget, from river cruises and kayaking to bespoke longhouse excursions tailored specifically to your needs. We’re always happy to help, and will get involved as much or as little as you require. If we happen to be going out around town in the evening then you’re very welcome to join us – the more the merrier!

Our hostel is situated in the heart of Kuching, just a five minute walk to the waterfront and the main shopping and entertainment areas. Kuching is a vibrant and colourful city with a large number of bars, cafes and restaurants as well as museums, cinemas, bowling, local markets, high street shops and shopping malls, colonial and local buildings of historical interest and much more.

Outside of Kuching City itself, yet still within a short driving distance can be found some beautiful natural scenery and amazing wildlife. Just some of the top attractions outside of Kuching include:

Bako National Park,

Semenggoh Orangutan Rehabilitation Center,

Sarawak Cultural Village,

Gunung Gading National Park,

Kubah National Park,

Wind Caves and Fairy Caves,

Annah Rais Bidayuh Longhouse,

Damai Beach,

Mount Santubong.

Borneo Seahare Guesthouse is a great place to base yourself during your stay in Kuching. We offer an air conditioned 8 bed mixed dorm, an air conditioned private double room, a cool and comfortable double room with wall fan, and a private bunk bed twin room with air con. We have shared bathroom facilities, a communal kitchen area with washing machine, fridge, oven and dining area, and a lounge area with a comfortable sofa, flat screen television and a DVD player with over 300 DVDs. Free WiFi is available throughout the guesthouse, and a computer with internet access is provided for guest use.

A simple free breakfast is provided each day, comprising of toast with jams, tea and coffee. A full English breakfast is also available for sale and cheap beer is available all day every day.

As there are no buses from Kuching International Airport to the city center, we offer an airport transfer at a rate slightly cheaper than the local taxis - RM25 between 6.00am and 11.00pm and RM35 between 11.00pm and 6.00am.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

I do not understand why this hostel is highly rated. It was the WORST hostel that i stayed in. The main reason is that when there was a problem there was NO ONE to contact. We were given a set of keys. The keys to the doors were very difficult to open. Took us 10 minuted to open each door! On one occasion we had to ask people from a near by bar to help open the door.
I definitely will NOT recommend this hostel to anyone

3. The place looks really torn down.

My husband and I (senior travelers) are so happy staying here, the price is great R15 a night with continental breakfast included.
The hostel is upstairs and it is only small with 3 bedrooms which are 2 bunk rooms and 1 double bed room all have fans. We have this one. Kitchen and small lounge library with book swap.No cooking facilities but tea,coffee and toaster facilities. Supermarket just down the road.
Dont be put off with entrance metal grate door and no signs. Just a 5min walk down to the river water front.
Wesley the owner picked us up from the airport and spent several hours telling us about the city and what to see. Then gave us the keys to our room and hostel and left. He lives elsewhere and works during the day. We can contact him by phone if we need to and leave messages at the desk here if we miss him. We have a lock up cabinet for our passports etc. We are left to our own devices and its all on trust which we just love .
Kuching is clean, friendly,interesting city and we went to see the Orangutang national park yesterday and they came right up to us. Better than Sandakan in the north of Borneo.
The food is fantastic here you can eat, Chinese, Malay, Moslem, European, MacDonalds and KFC.
There are lots of Shopping Malls and small eating places. All price ranges. Loved the seafood market above the car park. Thankyou Wesley for having us we feel safe.calm and very happy. Helen and Ross Australia
