    Has everything you need and close to city centre. The staff were quick to respond to my email the day before arrival, asking about the morning ferry to Labuan, as I couldn't find the information online. They also left breakfast out for me, as I had to leave early to catch the ferry (great way to get to Kota Kinabalu). The owner was really chatty, so all these little touches makes for a great place for a traveller to stay.

    Andrew at the front desk who I believe is the Owner was WONDERFUL TO ME. He explains that area where the hostel is and was very professional and friendly and helpful. The hostel is clean, and well located. The bus from the city stops about a one minute walk away. The room was clean and the bed linens and mattress very comfortable. The price is very fair and it’s a very nice place to stay. Thank you very much Andrew for taking care of me! Andy from San Francisco Ca. USA

    This hostel was perfect, very clean and comfortable. My partner and I had a great time here. The included breakfast was a nice touch (just simple toast, jams & wheat biscuits with tea and coffee available). The aircon worked a treat, very quiet and very nice! Would stay here again for sure.

    the beds were the comfiest I’ve had in a while, the hostel is spotlessly clean. It was a bit tricky to find because the location on maps me is wrong, however they sent me an email with the correct location. it’s a bit outside the city centre but there’s a bunch of good restaurants nearby

    Good spot for a stop over. I just spent the one night there. Beds were comfortable and there was nice privacy. Breakfast was standard enough. There’s a few shops and restaurants close by also

    Our stay here was fine, it certainly wasn’t the best hostel we’ve stayed in but it also wasn’t the worst. If you got a bottom bunk it’s probably much better, I was on the top bunk and would be face to face with whoever walked in the room. There was also nowhere to store my things if I was on the top bunk so things would just fall to the floor. The staff were really nice though, one woman even drove us to the airport when our taxi didn’t show up.

    Very comfortable stay here. Beds with curtains. Friendly and helpful staff. Filtered water in the kitchen. Bus stop outside number 20 and 22 bus every 20 mins to centre of town and back. Plenty of food places close. Give Surfian a call/whatsapp on +6738615212 for a river cruise he drops you off or pick up at pier behind hostel a street away. Will be back again one day. Cheers guys.
