mr_rhythm i stayed in this hostel for more than two weeks and loved it. the owners (samuel and georgette) were great. the location is perfect, just a ten minute walk from downtown kuching and the sarawak river. it is cheap and clean and has free internet. i highly recommend the marco polo.

cridgeyno1 Treehouse was an awesome place to stay in Kuching. Bindi has created a very friendly and chilled atmosphere, which ties in well with the rest of Kuching. Only thing is that in the dorm, it was very dark and got pretty hot as there is only a fan in there. But overall, its an excellent place, and you will be guaranteed top notch service!

bei bei the cutest lodge I ever stepped in. clean rooms, cozy surrounding and comfortable hospitality. the toilet is a bit tiny yet cleaned all the time, no hussle at all :) i love the mini-library and its collection of readings. the WIFI speed in room is incredibly fast and tv channels/DVD provided are also excellent. the staffs are the best, giving us a home-away-from-home feelings. such a shame we stayed there for only 5 days. how i wish i live here :P A MUST-STAY FOR TRAVELLERS WHO FANCY KUCHING.

randhpye 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

DaynaChand Nice freindly atmosphere and cleanest backpackers we've stayed in so far. Really liked the vibe and the tv/lounge room - felt more like one's own house than a hostel. Staff were friendly and quite the amusement...
nicolas_th The guesthouse is really well located near to the waterfront in the old atmospheric part of Kuching. We had a nice family room on Ewe Hai Street (which is not noisy !), but some other rooms are windowless. All the infrastructure is something old, the walls are thin but the staff is friendly, on the groundfloor there is a comfortable space to make your breakfast or have tea... a good address !

aieyen Although I booked for the RM40 per night room, the conditione of the room was unacceptable that I was forced to upgrade to a different room and paying more than what I had bargained for. The RM40 room stank of rotten tobacco, had a rectangular hole for a window and rusted prison-like bed frame that smelt of rancid metal. The walls seemed to be infected with what looked liked brown liquid fungus and the paintwork were peeling off the wall. It was bad... I didn't expect even a 3-star standard of accomodation, but that room really looked like the abandoned prison I saw in Cambodia! Being a Malaysian, I was sorely disappointed. However, the room that I upgraded to, the RM70 per night, was spotlessly clean with new curtains, new bedding and attached bathroom. The room was cosy and smelt fresh. The only improvement I would suggest is to add some hooks or hangers in the bathroom to at least be able to hang a towel.
