After coming back from various excursions around Sabah and awaiting a friends arrival, I had a recommendation that this place was alright. I decided to book a double room for extra comfort (as opposed to the dorm option available here)because i wasn't too well. The room was generally clean, but had a problem with bugs (mosquitos mainly but a few cockroaches too). You could hear everything in the guesthouse, people talking in other rooms, people running up and down the stairs, doors slamming, the traffic outside. The room was overpriced and no room for bargaining whatsoever. The toilets flush took forever to re-fill with a couple of embaressing consequences.
Having said that, the girls running the place were very friendly and insightful (i didnt have any experience with the much-maligned Vincent mentioned in other reviews). The laundry service was very good. The location is excellent, with the stairs to the viewpoint 50 metres or so away, Gaya Street nearby (across a busy road), Atkinsons Clock Tower at the end of the road. The breakfast was alright too.
I think there are better and worse places to stay in KKMore
