We stayed at Marco Polo Guesthouse for about 6 days. Arriving at night was not a problem as he waited for us after emailing. It is in walking distance of the city centre and it is possible to leave your bags here when going to one of the many National Parks. Would recommend this place!

The hostel is in a good location for Chinatown and the bus to Bako NP. The room was large and we could spread our belongings around.
