Good location. Hostel was in need of maintenance. The A/C units in the rooms that had A/C were very poor. The staff varied. The two locals were nice and helpful. The Canadian staff member was unhelpful and rude. It's okay for one night but wouldn't recommend for longer.

Staff very friendly and helpful, lots of information available for tours/trips, but they also give you advice on which ones you can do on your own. Nice open plan kitchen/living room with animal documentaries always on tv. Simple Breakfast of toast, fruit, with coffee/tea available 24/7. Clean cool rooms, hot, powerful showers and fridges with drinks/beers and crisps you can buy. Not really a party lodge as accommodates all- we had a school party. Great value for money, close to everything 👌🏽

SO lovely, clean and relaxed. The staff are really helpful and the communal area is ideal. Perfect for all types of travellers and families alike! Also such good value for money.

Location is really good, but there are lots of hostels in that area. Towel are not included and available for rental (5 RM, really expensive). Bed sheets were REALLY dirty, when I asked to change the guy said to use another bed but they were ALL DISGUSTING. There's no aircon and only fans in the basic room, but it gets WAY TOO hot in the evening. Fan rooms in other hostels are much better. The only real upside of this hostel is their shower, which is amazingly strong. Wouldn't recommend staying.

Very grimy place, not comfortable, not a place you want to hang out in. Do not recommend. Akinabalu Youth Hostel is just down the street and a much nicer place.

Very chilled. I headed Kota Kinabalu to have my own time and Jesselton Cabin was a great choice.

Not much in the way of atmosphere or social opportunities but that's not really their fault. Great value dorm and some helpful advice for your stay.
