We couldn't even check in. There was nobody there at the reception. They didn't even answer our calls and messages. With the whole town booked, we were in the situation of sleeping on the street!

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.

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.
