    Staff was super accommodating and always looked out for our best interests. Was nice, clean, and everyone was friendly. Good locations - a couple blocks away from the water. Incredible price for value.

    I stayed here with my friend in Jan 2019. The staff is super polite and friendly. They communicated well with us and helped us with any esquires we had. The location was kinda tricky to find cause it is in a built up area and the sign is a bit small. However Gaya Street is a very lively area with many great restaurants. It is not far from Jesselton Point as well Suria Mall. The dorm I was in was a bit hot though because the AC was not working. Besides that I enjoyed everything else.

    Overall, the room is very clean. There are lots of stalls operating during weekends selling foods and souvenirs. However, during my 2 night stay there were concerts held making the place was not comfortable with loud noises.

    Definitely a budget hostel. I usually don't write reviews, but I felt that the information was a little misleading. On the description for the hostel, they claim to provide air conditioning, but there is none in the largest rooms and common area. The room unfortunately has no screens, and there are mosquitoes. They say they have wifi however it is only in the common area. Book this hostel because it is cheap, not because it looks good. If returning to KK, I would check out a different hostel.

    I would not recommend this hostel. There is an AC unit in the room (&photos) but it does not work. There are 3 fans but it was still unbearably hot. The worst nights sleep I've had in 5 months backpacking Asia. Showers also not particularly clean or powerful. I checked out early and moved to a cheaper better hostel elsewhere in KK.
