the comment about the bedbugs its not true...this place is very good and the staff was really helpful and friendly....
if you are come into kota kinabalu,this is the best place that you can stay..
they also can help you to arrange your tour.

i went for a 5 days 4 nights trip to Kota Kinabalu in November 2011 with friends (all 6 of us). I made the reservation by phone and the staffs are very kind and polite. The dorm room was clean and comfortable, facing Jesselton Hotel. The location is very good. Love this place, basic but feel like at home.

Room Tip: Rooms facing main road has better aeration. Rooms at first floor (same floor with reception is more convenient).

nice guesthouse with nice staff. They give good information and can arrange nice trips to Kinabatang, the mountain Kinabalu and more. It is in a central area with lots of shoppingmalls and other shops. Also dinner at the Fillipino fishmarket is a must!!! Enjoyed my stay very much!

Very unhelpful staff with limited information. Crammed dorms with bedbugs and cockroach and found that although they advertise a laundry service, this is not the case. We instead were (poorly) directed to a local one which stained our clothes. Good location

I stayed here for 2 nights in a private room. The room was big and had a window onto Jalan Gaya but it was quiet enough and I slept well. (compared to a room I had in the BGL next door with a window facing the car park area behind).
The staff were really helpful especially when they helped me receive and send a fax to book a tour. I would have stayed here longer but they were unfortunately full after my tour so I had to move on. I would definitely stay here again if I could.

Room Tip: rooms facing Jalan Gaya are quieter but not on a Sunday when the market will wake you up early!
