Very friendly staff, they know everything for backpackers


Even better than my 2010 visit. I will keep coming back here when in KOTA kINABALU tHEY HAVE EXPANDED TO TWO FLOORS.


Very good secured hostel, with a nice staff which wanted to help you with whathever you were looking for. Clean rooms, comfortable beds, good working aircon. Good and clean showers and toilets. Only thing that could be added is the option to wash your clothes in a washing machine.


We love the hostel, the room was good, adequate space and privacy. Cleanliness was fine, and the environment is very calm and friendly. Due to good service, we even decided to extend our stay there for 2 nightsz
