Borneo Seahare Guesthouse
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 appreciate that some guests like to be left alone and are happier keeping to themselves, whilst others prefer to hang out with our staff, share travel tips and stories and learn about Kuching and what there is to do here. At Borneo Seahare Guesthouse we make sure our guests are in control, and will make ourselves as readily available or as invisible as you want us to be.
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!
