When we arrived they were all full so we reserved two beds in the mixed dorm for the next 3 nights. We were a little confused when we arrived as to which beds were free in the dorm (probably due to arriving at the check in/ check out time of noon). Rooms are nice with about 8-12 beds per dorm. You have the choice of ac or just fan. They have a common area with tv and DVD player and wifi thru out the whole place, all 3 floors ( you don't loose the signal) The staff are very quiet, perhaps due to language barrier) but despite they have good information thru out hostel with activities that they offer in Borneo. We liked it and would recommend staying here.

Simply nice and clean hostel. The staff are helpful and friendly. Hot shower provided. Tourist can look for useful information from information board. For breakfast, you may have toast with strawberry jam and butter. Tea and coffee are free to make. Remember you have to clean your dishes after use. The location is very strategic. Located at Gaya Street, you can find any restaurant, cafe, supermarket, plaza, and mall nearby. Only took less than 5 minutes to go to Suria Sabah Mall by walking. Free Wi-Fi provided, but since there's only 1 router, not all tenants can use it. A lot of tourist from around the world stay here, so you can make a lot of acquaintances. Overall, it's been a satisfying experience. No regret!

This was a nice place to stay while in Kota Kinabalu, I met some awesome people here! The staff are friendly and helpful although some information is not always correct.
Pros-Very central location, helpful 24/7 staff, fridge to store shopping in
Cons-A lot of the bunks are broken, ants in the toilets/showers and a couple of times in the rooms

Me and my friends stayed in an A/C dorm for 3 nights (RM25 per night/pax). It was cozy and comfortable! Well-maintained, free toast, tea and coffee for breakfast, free flow of mineral water. The receptionists are helpful if you need their help for your tour. Located at the heart of KK city, you can just walk the whole KK city from here and there are a lot of restaurants nearby. Recommended for backpackers. :)

A very friendly staffed hostel, very helpful! The rooms, dorm and common areas are quite clean. Good showers and clean toilet. They also offer some basic toast as breakfast.

The common room was always cozy with other backpackers. Really nice atmosphere!

A place to return to!
