Our original plan was to stay 3 nights, but ended up staying 7. Moi is amazing, so welcoming and helpful. The rooms are spotlessly clean, as are the shared bathrooms. There is tea, coffee and water available at all times, along with bananas and crackers. There is a lounge area with a TV and a good selection of DVD's to... More

Traveller homestay is a welcoming little guesthouse. The rooms are comfortable and very clean, as is the bathroom and shared areas (which are also cool and quirky-with the walls covered in old pictures)! Free coffee, tea, biscuits and some fruit all day and a good breakfast of toast and eggs. But the best part is Moi the owner. Moi is... More

We've been guests at the "Travellers" for 5 nights and we really loved it. "Moi" was always there to help, if we had questions or if we needed something else. She knows a lot and also gave us helpful things like a busplan, maps and a what-to-do list, when we arrived. Drinking water, crackers, bananas, coffee and tea are included... More

You can't go past this homely guesthouse for approx. $20 a night. It stands right beside the great cat of Kuching. The decor and cleanliness are top class and Moi is so caring and friendly. She even went to the airport in her own time to check on our lost baggage. We were so grateful. The breakfast downstairs is delicious... More

We have been travelling for over 5 months straight, and it is no exaggeration to say that we have never before experienced the helpfulness and kindness of the hosts at Traveller Homestay. Moi and Victor go to great lengths to help with anything you may need, often before you even think of asking. They really try their best to make... More
