Excellent Staff, really friendly, wonderful place to be. I have heard some people criticise the aesthetic of the building, but it's part of Kota Kinabalu's history. There are only two buildings that survived the war, and one of them was this one. It's gorgeous for that alone. Comfortable beds, really welcoming and friendly staff, great food on offer and everything you need is nearby, including a huge Milimewa and a nice cafe/bar below.
It's so cheap and you get such great value for money I would recommend to everyone / anyone. This place and the people who run it will always have a special place in my heart.
