Just spent 5 weeks at this lodge, last year 4 weeks, and had amazing stay, mainly due to the owners. The owner Sheila and her mother are the nicest and most helpful people you will ever meet. Excellent location and very clean, you must stay here

It was a good place to sleep. Really close to everything and great local restaurants around. Avoid the western bar style ones, there over priced.

Room tip: Local Restaurant beside "Public Bank". Cheap beer and food. AWESOME

We came here with no expectations and that helped :) It is a small guesthouse with 5 rooms. You get what you pay for since KK is expensive compared to other places in SE-Asia. There is a pub nearby and you can here it all the night but we could sleep :) the AC in our room was very good and the internet very fast so that is a plus. You get basic breakfast. Staff is helpful and location could not be better.

You can not get a better deal than this if you are traveling on a budget and want a room with AC. We did a very good research both online and by walking all around KK. The bathroom is shared but that is ok. We stayed in room 5 and the bed is really really hard. So if you have beck problems try to ask for another room. Overall best deal you can get in KK but very very basic...........

This is very basic accommodation, but what more do you need than a bed (a/c available), bathroom and wifi. The wifi signal reached the rooms which was convenient.

The owner/manager of this place is a sweet and helpful lady, able to answer our queries about how to keep busy in kota kinabalu.

I booked 1 night on booking.com and even though I stayed in the room at 20 ringgint I had to pay 25 because I booked via internet. There was only 1 key per dorm, which was a small room with 3 bunk beds, very noisy place too! No locker as well! The breakfast was fair though. There are other good places for same or better price.
