Hostels around australias place seem to have something in common. None of them is good, ar least the 3 (!) I tried.
After my first night in KBL i felt like i was getting sick. I used the aircon and i suspect it to be the cause. It almost ruined my plan to clim Mt. Kinabulu.
My room was in front of the noisy road and i used earplugs even when i was not sleeping. Too loud!
The staff did not seem to be very happy and did not like to talk or even look at me much. She did her job well, but failed making me feel comfortable. It seemed like she did not like my presence and questions. But she helped me with organising my trip. I give her that.
All in all i did not enjoy my stay in kota kinabalu because people were not friendly no matter where i went. Too bad.
