    Been to this city for 4 times for the great mountain but first time with Dock In. It is a truly hidden gem in the town. Located near to Tanjung Aru beach, this place is extremely comfortable and well maintained. Chilled vibe, good coffee, cheap beer, helpful staffs in one place. Keep the good job Dock In!

    Great stay, even though it is about 10 minute-driving away from the crowded city centre. It is easily to take a GRAB to anywhere in the city with reasonable fare. Close to the beachside with the prefect sunset. Highly recommended to those nature lovers who like a clean place to stay over.

    Great if you need to be by the airport or the beach. Super clean and comfortable but no hostel vibe. Cool upstairs area in the cafe for people who are staying but found over 3 nights I was only one there. Did have the best nights sleep and the showers and bathrooms are kept very clean. Short walk to beach for beautiful sunset and also paddle boarding monkeys (check them out) Good food and great value accommodation for the price

    Location: 30mins walk from hostel to Tanjung Aru Beach. 10mins walk to KFC. Cleanliness: Lobby is dirty. Overall: Fast check and it worth the price. Area of improvement: Staff are not friendly and not well equipped with tour knowledge.
