    I only stayed at this place to crash overnight, but this surely looked like a great hostel for any backpacker. There is a nearby market that one might find interesting. So kind to check me in at 11AM, and the receptionist lady helped me to recover my forgotten phone too! Breakfast was great with toast + jam/magerine plus tea/coffee. There were few bathrooms and all of them were quite clean. Beds were comfy and had a proper working A/C too. Great and friendly staff, comfy rooms and amenities.

    Very nice hostel to stay at Ranau. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The beds are comfortable although the AC just gets very cold. Free toast with jams all day is awesome and cleanliness is great. A little expensive but good backpacker hostel.

    Cheap hostel, you have to make your own bed but at least you know the bed is clean when you do that.

    I wasn't expecting much and didn't get much. WiFi was bad, common area is not cozy, balcony with hammock was full with water after the rain. But, location is good if you just wana spend night, cause it is close to bus station. So, overall it was ok, as a rating shows.
