    flight delay messed up how long I got to stay BUT front desk were amazingly helpful &responsive to my emails at 1am - we caught some sleep from 2-5am, so worth it! MYR 9 grab / 10 min ride from the KKIA airport- perfect if you’re landing late &have early flight or pick up to elsewhere in Borneo. Value for money was worth the short stay! Comfy bunk beds, curtains for privacy, sufficient power points, locker. Clean bathrooms. Bar area looked great. Towels provided. duvet bed linen. Will stay a

    Rooms are squeaky clean. Aircond temperature is not adjustable, you need to walk down to the lobby, get the controller, walk up to your room and adjust, then you will have to walk down to the lobby again to return the controller. Very inconvenient on this matter. Hopefully this can be improved.

    Great stay - this is the hostel that all hostels should base themselves on. Top facilities. Be aware however that they charge RM10 more than the price given on Hostelworld (~£2).

    Dock In is super clean, super comfortable, looks great, feels spacious, and is a really really nice place to relax and chill out after partying/mountain climbing. So why only 8/10? Dock In would *easily*be over 9.0 Stars if the staff were a bit more organized. Pretty much every day there were problems such as: - bookings being lost - key cards not being refreshed - breakfast finishing earlier than stated - staff forgetting to tell you important info Also, just FYI the breakfast is small.

Simple breakfast - if you have dietary requirements don’t have high expectations...simple cereal , milk and toast available. Rooms were clean as was the bathroom and common area.

    The facility was really nice. We stayed in the same room for 4 days but it was never cleaned the whole time we were there. It would have been nice if they could have at least cleaned the bathroom and swept the floor.
