A cheap hotel with a good value for money. I like how fast they responded to email inquiries. The location is perfect. Accessible to most of the to-visit-places in Kota Kinabalu. It's like coming to home. They provide airport pick up. They don't provide excellent service but you know the feeling of being home - you are relax, you have a family, you have your own room with airconditioned but nothing too fancy. The toilet and bath is outside but it's clean and not crowded. There is free wi-fi though it was not working during our stay. And they offer free breakfast. But be ready. You have to prepare it yourself and you have to wash your own utensils after and that's something different. When I visit again the country, I might stay there still.
