I received an E-mail from Masada Backpacker,told me to prepare all the things before setting off.very friendly. "we attached herewith the airport bus time table if you prefer to get here by bus at RM 5.00 per person, (you can buy your ticket at the airport bus ticket booth at the arrival hall); the bus stop is just nearby and it take about 5 minutes walk to our place only. Of course the easiest and most convenience way is by taxi at RM 30.00 per taxi, as it will drop you just in front of us. "

I really liked this hostel and ended up booking a couple more nights once we arrived. It was a bit more pricey than some others but well worth it. That said while we were there the a/c had broken in one room but they quickly had it fixed before bed time (efficient!). The showers were hot (bonus!) but they did flood quite easily as they are stalls lined next to each other and the drain was clogged so you ended up stepping in everyone's dirty shower water. If that's fixed then I highly recommend.

Kota Kinabalu is such a charming town! Masada is a typical backpackers hostel that was a great place to meet people and a fantastic base for day trips around KK, or even further. I would recommend basing yourself in KK, as it is more friendly and much nicer than Sandakan. Two thumbs up for Masada.

I love this hostel! It was a very pleasant stay here with a big group of friends here. The place is very clean, with bed sheet changed daily! Simple breakfast included fresh cup of coffee, banana, toast with butter & jam. The atmosphere is good. Staffs always smiling :) The only thing I wish to comment is there is no separate basin for teeth brushing which could be a little inconvenient. Totally value for money!

I didn't find this place to be very social at all, but to get a bed in a good location in KK, it was fine. The staff were helpful and good with everything they needed to be.
