  • 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.
