Overall this place is fine, though for the same amount of money I think you'd find a better place to stay. Good location but I'd recommend searching for nearby hostels/hotels instead.


Good for a hostel, but I wouldn't recommend the private room (where we stayed) - smelled of dampness and the air conditioner didn't work very well. The breakfast was good (cooked beans or scrambled eggs on toast), and the staff were friendly but didn't actually know that much about the attractions around the area. The location isn't great - it would be better to stay closer to the ferry wharf, because even though Kota Kinabalu is small, it's so hot!!!

Perfect. The place was clean, comfortable, well located, and had a very friendly owner who helped with the booking of many guest's tours. Oh, and the beers were cheap (compared to in-town prices). The breakfast was a little off but hey, it was free!

What can I say: excellent. Local tours booked by the hostel are even cheaper than booked directly on internet. Normally it is the other way round.
