Wonderful family run homestay

staff, room, breakfast
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.

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.

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!!

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.

Clean, affordable and very friendly staff

friendy, clean, affordable
A very friendly and cosy place. Moi is a wonderful host. She helps with everything, including food, travelling and programme recommendation. The rooms and the public area are clean, you can have tea, coffee or even some fruit. The aircon does it's job, the room facing the main street is a bit noisy so if you're a light sleeper bring some earplugs and you'll have no problems. There's a restaurant downstairs where locals eat, you can have really good steamed buns, and you can also buy water and even pain killers. The downtown is a light 10 minutes walk away, and there's also a laundry nearby. If you're looking for an affordable place where you can feel at home this is the place for you.

very pleased we found this place

authentic, charming, gracious host
This place was a great find. A 15-20 min easy walk to the central, along the river. Not too far from the airport. Set above a delicious Chinese restaurant with great local eateries on the street, and a public swimming pool 10 mins walk away.

We booked one night at Traveller Homestay and stayed two more. This simple place is very comfy and stylish. We got a 3 person room for us of 2 on the top of the building. There is a little balcony, a table with chairs in front of the room and downstairs there is a lounge with tv, laptop, books and there you can help yourself with coffee, tee, fruits and snacks. Wifi is working everywhere in the building. The whole place is extremly clean! On the ground floor there is a chinese coffeeshop/restaurant which seemed to be always full with local people. You get a good free breakfast in the morning. Moi is very helpful and friendly, we could store our bags for one night when we went to Bako Nationalpark, she showed us where to take the bus, organised a taxi for pick up to the airport,... she is a good homestay-mum;-)

Comfort without the frills

Great value, cleanliness and homely decor
We extended our stay to five nights because we had such a pleasant time here. The staffs, Moi and her family, are attentive, friendly and helpful. Moi does a superb job in making our stay as comfortable and easy as can be, such as providing clean towels, giving us info on public transportation to national parks and scooter rentals. The breakfast is a full spread of coffee, juice, eggs, toasts, jam and butter, as well as a local dish of the day. The hostel is cozy and homely and the decor gives a welcoming feeling. The room is good and sheets are clean. We stayed in a room that faces the streets and traffic can be a bit loud at night if you are a light sleeper...ear plugs solve the problem. The bathrooms are standard, cleaned everyday, and the shower is hot with good water pressure. I like that the hostel is in a historic building in Chinatown and there are plenty of restaurants and cafes around the area. The location is about 10 min walk to the eastern start of the waterfront and about 40min to the Sarawak Museum and main bus terminal at the mosque. Moi will show you the red bus that goes to Bako National Park which stops one street away from the hostel. it is very convenient. We stayed overnight at Bako and Moi kept our luggage secured. I would not hesitate staying here again and highly recommend Travelers Homestay for a pleasant and comfortable stay.
