Mei is a great host. Traveller Homestay is located at the edge of China town and almost all the sightseeing and restaurants are 15 - 20 minute walking distance away. The hotel is very clean and tidy, safe, staff is super friendly, AC works great. The lounge is nice and cozy. The environment is really nice and warm. We walked...

We stayed here for a total of 13 nights and we felt so at home, it's the best place we've stayed in 2 months of travelling Asia! Moi is just the sweetest lady ever. Nothing is too much trouble for her, she really took care of us and was so helpful with recommending us places to go/eat and booking a...

This little guesthouse is cozy and nice, Moi, the owner is the sweetest person, she really takes care about her guests and you can tell she is genuinely interested. The place is simple but really nicely furnished and a lot of care and attention is given to details. It has a colonial style with some Malaysian accent that make it...

My girlfriend and I booked into home stay for an initial two nights but ended up staying another three. Owned by a brother and sister who have converted their childhood home into this charming guesthouse. It's clean and full of character with the walls covered in pictures and many of the original features like the wooden staircase and open walls...

I was travelling for 4 weeks through Malaysia/Borneo and during my journey I didn't stay in a better place. Homestay Traveller is clean, well located, lovingly decorated, the breakfast was good and Moi and her brother as well as the other staff were very friendly and extremly helpful. I just can highly recommend this place!

Cannot fault our stay; our room was a good size and had everything we needed, the shower and social area were clean and quiet, and Moi was extremely helpful. The cafe downstairs (and each day's breakfast) was an added bonus on arrival. Moi's recommendations for public transport to Bako NP and nearby restaurants were great every time.

Great little place in China town, walking distance from downtown. Superb service and friendliness from Moi, the owner. She will do anything to make you comfortable. Simple and clean, exactly what we expected.

I stayed at Traveller Homestay for a week and I cannot rate this place any higher. It's in a great location, just outside of the downtown core in Chinatown near great restaurants and cafes. I liked it being a bit removed from the main strip and it only takes 10+ mins to get down there anyway. The homestay is just...
