Wonderful family run homestay

Superb place to stay in Kuching, cannot recommend enough. Moi was a fantastic host, she was very accommodating, served delicious meals in the family restaurant, helped with buses getting to Bako National park and generally was just very lovely. A true home away from home. We were sad to leave.

The host of traveller Homestay is very nice. try to help you different way, I was there for one night only, but she come to pick me up from my previous hotel and called a taxi for sending me to the airport the next day. There is a living room,if your flight is in late evening you can always stay in the living room till near your flight time and go. the ground floor is a restaurant where you can get good food to eat. overall is good.

Fabulous homestay environment

Quality for money, Customer Service, Friendly homely atmosphere
9.7
We keep booking in for more nights here. The Traveller is immaculately clean, comfortable rooms and beds, quiet aircon, has wonderful decor, lots of little attention to detail and the owner and staff are incredibly friendly and helpful. It is very secure and great value for money. You wake each morning to the sound of the bustling coffee shop below (always full of diners) and the smell of freshly ground coffee. The location is in an interesting part of Kuching, lots of local small businesses and eateries, a bit of a walk to the waterfront (about 20 minutes) so a little bit away from some of the other touristy places. Highly recommended to any traveller, you won't be disappointed.

A unique homestay

Unique Malaysian experience, Homely feel, excellent service
8.3
I had a great time staying here. The manager Moi puts a lot of personal care into every person who stays here (with fantastic English skills) in making sure they are comfortable and they know where they are going. Breakfast is fantastic and you can get it without time limit, and you eat it downstairs in the family restaurant where you are warmly greeted by everyone there. The location a bit so-so at the edge of town, but walking through the Chinese quarter is always a lovely experience and there's some good food and shopping. I would definately recommend this homestay to any traveller.

This hotel is clean & good location. 24hrs restaurant just next to it. The lady owner is friendly and nice. She provided a good service. Only 1 thing that need to complain is the room which I styed is face to the main road. When car passby is very nosiy. Lucky I do bring my own ear plug so I still manage to sleep. You can choose the room with no window will be better.

Nice shop house

The owner, Moi, is very friendly and helpful. I really enjoyed talking to her and learning about her family and the history of their shop and their home.

Our room was on the front of the building and there was traffic all night, but we put in ear plugs and it was fine. The accommodations are simple, but clean and comfortable, and the place has character!! Spending a couple of nights here gives you a real feel for the history and culture of the local people which you don't get staying in a large hotel. Great value!!

this wonderful , simple place is run by loveable moi who will go out of her way to look after her guests.the rooms are small and clean, so are the bathrooms,the house is decorated with style, you get different food for brekkie every day, there are daily newspapers, fruit and water for you and you can even eat in at the downstairs food stall.the city center is in easy walking distance and moi knows reliable taxi drvers and agencies for daytrips.if you want to experience true hospitality and catch a glimpse of everyday life in kuching/chinatown stay there.we simply loved our week there!!!!!

Pleasant stay but be aware of what you are getting

Staff, lounge, cleanliness
8.3
I had a good stay, and Moi and her brother (they manage the place) are really kind and helpful. Two issues with Agoda though: 1- It was not clearly stated in the hotel description nor on the booking page that bathrooms are always SHARED at this place; and 2- Even though I booked several months ahead of time on Agoda, the hotel had not received any email notification from Agoda regarding my reservation. Fortunately, there was a room available when I arrived, but these kinds of things can really spell disaster when you are away from home, and I do expect something more secure when booking through Agoda. Not sure I'll be booking with the same peace of mind in the future.
