  • Best hostel in kk. Booked it for one night but ending up staying there for six nights! Friendly staff, nice breakfast and good location. The rooms upstairs (6 bed dorms) is the best!

  • Very clean and comfortable. A few minutes walk to the main streets. The new addition is very nice and a step above the other budget accommodation in the city.

  • I spent 3 nights there, the atmosphere was great and the staff working there were helpful as well. You can ask them any information about Kota Kinabalu. The experience there was really awesome and I would like to come back again.

  • A very clean and nice hostel with friendly and helpful staff. Nothing to complain about really, except maybe that it's a bit of a walk to the waterfront and similar places of interest. Not a big problem though. Free breakfast all day is a great bonus :) Decided to stay there again on my second round in Kota Kinabalu.
