Had a great stay at traveller homestay. Amazing value for money and included a fantastic choice of breakfast options. The decor of the place is so cosy and welcoming. Very clean. It is above a busy cafe. Noise from the cafe is not a problem at all as it closes by 8pm. Noise from the road outside might keep you...

My friend and I stayed at Traveller homestay for 8 days whilst exploring Kuching during a 4 week trip to Malaysian It is well located, with the waterfront a 10minute walk away, and a great base for exploring Kuching. Moi is an extremely gracious host, who made us feel at home and helped organise our trips to Bako national park....

Travellers homestay is a nice place to be. It's located at the first floor above a Chinese restaurant at the end of Chinatown. So it's 1 km far from the city centre. The hole floor is cozy and nice furnished. It's easy to feel there at home. The bed is comfortable and you get a complementary Asian breakfast in the...

With one of my friend, we spend 6 nights at the Traveller homestay. We got one of the room on the second floor, it was clean, with a big double bed and aircon. Two towels were offered. The window was facing the side street and so you might listen some traffic noise. The commun bath area is small and clean....

I stayed 5 nights at Traveller Homestay and i liked my stay there. It is clean and cozy. The people are friendly. The shower is warm. If you are a light sleeper, the café downstairs is noisy in the morning so this might wake you up...I found Kuching itself not very interesting but it is very easy to travel from...

We initially just booked three nights at the Traveller’s Homestay and were planning to scout the streets for something a little cheaper for the two more weeks we planned to stay. After two days at Moi’s (the host) Homestay however we realised that we we probably won’t find a place as cozy and welcoming as the Traveller’s Homestay. The included...

This homestay was everything we hoped for. Cosy, comfortable, clean, priced well and in a great location. Aircon, wifi, clean comfortable beds, hot shower -- we were so happy to stay here for five nights. Moi, our host, went out of her way to help us to organise trips, taxis, restaurants and everything else. We loved walking down the road...

We stayed here two (seperate) nights and really enjoyed it. 68 MYR for one night. Nice, small room and good shared toilets/showers. The host was really nice! She helped us with the search for public transport and everything else. We could also leave our bags when we went to Bako for one night.

Mei is a great host. Traveller Homestay is located at the edge of China town and almost all the sightseeing and restaurants are 15 - 20 minute walking distance away. The hotel is very clean and tidy, safe, staff is super friendly, AC works great. The lounge is nice and cozy. The environment is really nice and warm. We walked...
