  • 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.

  • I stayed a dorm. Hostel provided a small locker and a space to storage big backpack / luggage to each person in the room. The shower rooms and toilets are cleanliness. Good water supplier and hot shower. The staffs are nice and helpful.

  • 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.

  • The only things i didn't like about this hostel were them allowing huge Chinese families to rent out half of the place. As well as the people who stayed there weren't very... social. but i made it work! so I guess this isn't their fault!.... but being a hostel you would think they only allow certain age groups.... not 6yo children.

  • Absolutely wonderful. Stayed there one night, kept stuff in their locker for a few days, and they let me shower and use their wifi when I came back, even though I was no longer paying to stay there. Great staff, great location

My personal definition of a backpacker is not someone who carries a backpack, but someone who just wants to save money to travel longer.
