Nice little hotel with friendly host
friendly host, clean and nice room, easy to get food
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
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
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.

Value for Money
Hostel Cleanliness, Location, Value for Money
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!!

Lovely old shophouse. Clean. Comfy and friendly
The house itself the coffee and moi and her family
Great. Easy Moi was super helpful. It is on a road so there is traffic at the front. If you want a peaceful stay in a clean room with extra amenities stay here

Wonderful host
hospitality, very clean, feels like home
We had the best time here in Kuching. The lady of this homestay is wonderful and so friendly. It truly feels like a home, with a little living room with laptop, newspapers, decoration. It is very cheap too considering what you get, even breakfast included. We had a lovely time and highly reccomend this homestay.

Friendly accommodating staff, value for money
Location, breakfast
Located within 10 minutes walk from the waterfront and in a busy new Chinatown area. The owner was very welcoming and friendly and provided good choice of breakfast suitable for my gluten free diet. Room description doesn't clearly state that all rooms have shared bathroom. Both my friend and I thought we are getting en suite. Maybe a tad misleading. It wasn't busy during our stay so it wasn't much of a problem but if it was packed then only two showers could prove inconvenient. Otherwise it was pleasant and there is a roof terrace to sit on. Good for watching Chinese festival if there is one happening. There was one during our stay. Not much to do in Kuching though if it rains or if you are not into wildlife. Otherwise can see orang utans and proboscis monkeys.
