    Excellent location. Quiet tranquil environment. We did a night here before a jungle trek early next morning and it was very convenient. Recommend this place if you want a good relaxing stay at a good location

    Small, friendly and clean hostel. All day breakfast and free self service laundry is fantastic. The hostel staff were very kind and helpful and even helped plan our trip / recommend places in Kinabatangan!

    During a 16 day trip to Borneo I stayed here on 3 separate occasions. Each time I enjoyed my stay despite not being the biggest hostel there was always people around to talk to. The hostel is very homely and welcoming making the stay comfortable. I was very grateful as they helped to organise taxi and transfers for trips. I would recommend staying here.

    Jenson was exceptionally helpful, going above and beyond to help us book the cheapest flights/baggage etc, using his laptop, PC and phone to look for us! Such a clean hostel, which is more like an apartment, fab location for the waterfront, restaurants and mall. 10 min grab from the airport, breakfast included, would 100% recommend to everyone. Thanks again Jenson :)

    A pleasant surprise. Such a nice clean, calm and cosy environment out of the crazy heat and humidity outside. Super charming and well though out.

    You can do your laundry for free but I'd suggest taking it to the laundry place downstairs to dry it as some of our didn't dry well and smelt damp. Rooms and beds are clean if a little cramped. Free breakfast and snacks. Atmosphere is good depending on who is staying there when you are. Overall good location and staff are really kind and helpful.

    We loved the atmosphere of Zoku: it's small but cozy, it's constantly playing soft lounge music, there are many plants inside, the living room and the kitchen are open spaces so it helps for people to interact (but wouldn't recommend for solo travellers looking to party). The showers were amazing (regulation of both temperature and strength), they offer shampoo and soap, there's AC in the room. The only thing is the toilet leaked water and the floor was often wet. Kitchen lacks a stove though.

    Very modern and cosy. Really comfy beds and a nice shared sitting area. Location opposite a huge shopping mall is great, and easy to take a short grab or walk into town. No complaints, but atmosphere when I was there wasn’t the friendliest.
