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.

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.

intouchspe This place is a little gem! We spent 4 nights here while in Kuching, a sleepy little town on a lovely river. The staff were welcoming from the moment we arrived to the moment we left. They provided helpful information on how to get to see some of the sights with no pushy sales attempts which was a relief and a nice surprise. Breakfast was included and although limited (toast, tea and coffee) the manager came down each morning and sliced up some fruit or shared some interesting snacks with us. The lodge's rooms are simple but very tastefully decorated with natural wood headboards and tables, and cute partitioned bathrooms. The showers were great & always the right temperature. And oh, the beds - so comfortable. They have lockers for valuables, a nice sitting area downstairs with papers, and water coolers so you can fill up your water bottles each day. Did I mention the lodge is right on the waterfront? Given it's name you would assume this but you never know.... The Waterfront Bazarre is a quiet little street even though it's the main road, so no need to worry about noise. My only criticism is that you cannot access tea and coffee facilities during the day and into the evening. They did provide these on request but it would be a nice touch to be able to make a cuppa when you really wanted one. But really, in the scheme of things, this is a minor detail. I would highly recommend staying at this lovely place in this lovely little town!
