    One of the best hostels I have stayed at. Nuril is a wonderful host. She is friendly and very helpful. The setup of the hostel makes it easy to meet new people. Access to hotel pool and gym is an added bonus!

    I had been to Zoku for couple of times. All is perfect, such as the location, the atmosphere and free breakfast. But little bit disappointed with the facilities.

    Booked last minute and was accepted, arrived late in the day and they were ready to check me in. Very comfortable beds, towel and breakfast provided. All the staff was super friendly. They helped me with booking tours and made things super easy. Defo recommend this place for anyone backpacking. Super chilled vibe too. Lots of places and shops free seconds away and close to the airport.

    While the hostel was small, it was very well designed and kept clean. Atmosphere was nice. Access to a pool and gym was awesome! Nuril and the other staff members were super accommodating and very friendly. They even helped me organize a rafting tour. Would definitely recommend staying here. It was a bit of a walk to central downtown area, but a Grab taxi was only 5MYR (~1.15 USD).

    Zoku was a good stay. The girls dorm was a bit tight as 4 girls tried to navigate around a small room. I would have appreciated a better check in process with the facilities but Jannsen and staff were helpful in helping me set up Mount Kinabalu hike. Overall good experience.

    Not bad, great you can use pool and gym, location good in terms of location to mall. Very basic double room which was more than a hotel. Atmosphere OK.
