Staff is lovely! The woman is so nice and friendly, she will help you with everything.
It was the second time I stayed here. It still has the friendly atmosphere and now a new cafe is added to the hostel where guests can have their welcome ritual ( Indian pancake, or banana fritte and a drink upon arrival. Now the bathrooms are equiped with hangers so guests can put clothing or towels there as suggested by me last time. It is unfortunate the intrusion by unfriendly personnel had caused a downturn in business for the whole Sabah. But still I could still enjoy seafood at Sim Sim.
Staff was really good and we got good advises for what to do. However first room (double room) that we got was in terrible condition. It was really moist and stinky, paint was dropping from the walls and roof. We got another room which was OK. The hostel owner makes great pumpkin in coconut milk gravy. It's worth trying.
