“Wonderful stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2014

We stayed here a couple nights. Great place. Every morning the couple who owned the place would make a delicious breakfast. They would drop off fruit for us every night. And bikes were free to use. Very friendly place.

If you come during the dry season we would recommend paying for the AC as it does get pretty hot in the rooms.

Mr kin and family are lovely so welcoming, we really felt at home and didn't want to leave!
The wifi was the best we have had in Asia.
The free breakfast was different everyday and delicious everyday, it was all traditional Khmer.
We had a tuk tuk driver named Hout who was brilliant so friendly always on time, he took us too and from town every night as the roads are dark. Into town was 1$ and we had several trips with him aswell he was very knowledgeable and very reasonably priced. Mr kun has several drivers so he will organise this for you.
We booked onward travel which was great.
The room itself was spacious, very clean, the shower was powerful and hot water, we had fridge wardrobe aircon. We were brought fresh fruit every evening which was a really lovely touch, different fruit everyday.
Good value for money for such a lovely welcoming place to stay.

We stayed at My Homestay for 3 nights in June 2014. It is in a great location about a 15 minute walk or 2 minute tuk tuk ride from the centre of Battambang. The room was big, clean and very comfortable. The included breakfast was so good - we asked for vegetarian and it was different each day. Mr Kun and his family made us feel very welcome and Mr Kun helped us with planning what to do in Battambang as well as booking our bus to Phnom Penh. In addition we had a great tuk tuk driver - his name was Janta - he worked for Mr Kun. He has fluent English and gave us a very detailed and interesting tour around the area.
Overall we would highly recommend My Homestay.

A very nice place to stay in Battambang.
Mr. Khun is a very attentive host who will openly welcome you to his guesthouse and can provide a lot of information. The rooms are more than worth the price so you can start into the day well rested (aircon possible, TV if you need it). The place is a bit out of Battambang, but not really far. A Tuk Tuk is recommended however.

Mr. Khun also has a couple of realiable and engaged Tuk Tuk drivers (around 12) that he works with and who he gladly recommends to you. We drove around with Nicky over the next days and can only recommend him. So get in touch with Mr. Khun for a pickup and a driver. It is well worth it.

Lovely. Much has been said already, so here in short:

- rooms are clean and spacious
- the Kun family is very, very friendly and do their best to make your stay as enjoyable as possible.
- Mr Kun speaks English fluently, the family not so much, but they will call him on the mobile and hand over to you, so in the end, you can ask/arrange anything even when he is at work
- he has good connections to reliable tuktuk drivers who speak very good English, which makes trips around the area so much more enjoyable
- we got a plate of different fruit every evening, some of which we didn't know before. Also two 1/2 l bottles of water. You feel really cared for, when you come home in the evening and someone was waiting for you and brings you such a nice treat.
- when we had trouble on our journey back to Phnom Penh, we called him on the mobile and he was very willing to help us
- very nice traditional Khmer breakfast, freshly prepared.
- ride to the city centre is just a few minutes by tuktuk or bike

Cons:
- while we were there around end of March, there was work done at the waterworks. So during the day only the toilet had water, but not the shower. But this is not the Kun familiy's fault and they provided big water buckets with fresh water for washing hands etc.

Mr. Kun makes everyone’s “homestay” a great one. We spent 1.5 days / 2 nights in Battambang (all you need) and this was the perfect, inexpensive homebase for us. The rooms are new & clean with aircon, hot water, etc. plus a tasty Cambodian breakfast is included and the Wifi was strong in the rooms. On top of the accommodations, the owner coordinated a full-day Battambang tour for us – an entire route + tuk tuk driver. We loved our day with Bowrain and highly recommend him and the tour to all Battambang visitors looking to see all the sights in a jam-packed Cambodia day. Pick up was included from the bus station which was a nice perk.
