We (my girlfriend and me) stayed there in August 2014 for 4 days. The room (nr. 1) was quite small but very good equipped with little shelves to store your things. The bes was great, everything was very clean. The only downside: The Windows of this room are just above a noisy street and we kind of felt like sleeping on a highway (even trough the whole night people would make their motorbikes scream or trucks would Pass the street). The aircon in the room is rather noisy as well, so nothing for people with a easy sleep or a craving for silence (the rooms at the back of the place are probably pretty quiet). Apart from that, travellers homestay was the nicest place we stayed in ( we travelled australia and indonesia 1 month each before) and still one of the cheapest (60 RM a night for Double room with aircon). The facilities are shared for the whole place (two shower/toilet combined) but surprisingly spotless clean for the number of people using them. The common room with complimentary water, coffee, tea, biscuits, and fresh fruits(!) was very comfy and clean. There was a laptop you could use for free. The hospitality and care of the host (moi) was exceptional. She helped us with everything like planing our time in kuching, findig the bus station to bako NP, getting Taxis and so on. (She speaks very good english, no communication Problems there :)). The included breakfeast (toast, jam, peanut Butter, eggs, coffee) turned out to be rather dull for me (I'm vegan, so its my own "fault" :)) so Moi gave us some treats (sweet dumplings) of her cafe, wich is situated in the ground floor of the place. She just made sure that we felt at home and comfortable, in which she greatly suceeded. In a nutshell: nothing to complain about except the noisyness in room 1. If you get better noise isolating Windows, I'd go for 5 of 5 :)
