The hotel was very clean, and the showers/toilets were excellent. The staff was wonderful, helpful, and understanding. I didn't like that the AC was on all night, and could not be turned off, because I believe it made me feel a little sick. The linens and towels were changed every day, which I was very appreciative for. This is not the best hostel for solo travelers to meet other travelers, as there is not much of a common room, but I did enjoy my stay.

The staff are excellent, we haven't plan our trip but the staff really gave us some good advices, the room is clean and with this valuable price, it's comfortable. Just a bit far to the jetty to the outer island, need to walk about 10-15 minutes, but there are many restaurant near the road, easy to get some snacks during the one way road to the jetty. Just unfortunately, the house wifi could not work for a day, but so far it's fine.

Great lodge, very clean throughout and within 15 mins walk to Jesselton Jetty or a easy $3 taxi fare if feeling lazy. Night markets directly behind and a huge seafood dining place just across the street. Washing across road also very cheap to get done. Breakfast basic, toast and some fruit but fills the void for the few hours through till luchtime. Overall a nice place to crash while in KK, id come back here again if passing by once more!

We really enjoyed our three nights at the lavender, the staff were brilliant, Daniel was so helpful, he helped us book our trip to mount Kinabalu and they let us store our big rucksacks while we climbed the mountain and then we spent the night after there to recover after the climb! The location is great, it's opposite a food market and there's a great restaurant on the same street where we ate a lot as the food was delicious. Would definitely recommend this place, it's quiet and peaceful, clean

Upon check in we were upgraded from deluxe double room w/shared toilet to one with attached toilet without any added cost so that was nice. Overall nice, clean hostel with a great location near Sedco Square. One gripe would be that the water pressure in our bathroom was very low.

In a word, Spotless. The place was super clean. No worry about bed bugs, we stayed for 4 or 5 nights Oct 2014. Nice enough location, very central, was very happy with our stay.

The hotel is very clean and the staff are extremely helpful and welcoming. Great poster of a proboscis monkey with a boner in the hallway. Light breakfast - white toast and a bit of watermelon - but that seems to be the case everywhere in Sarawak and Sabah.
