Value For Money”

Stayed here in March 2022. We had a good night sleep here. A few things you may need consider before booking. - The place also hosts long term stay so you will find bathroom full of toiletries, balcony full of clothes, bedsheet, towels, etc. Which takes me to my next point. - For solo female traveler: Would suggest you to stay on the floor where the reception is. It's more comfortable than the floor above it where the washing machine is because of the point mentioned above. Other than that, the place is good. Walking distance to mini mart, atm, food, the backpacker is actually really clean and rooms, beds were comfortable.

The best hostel to stay in here at KK! The staff are friendly and very nice. The room is clean and well-prepared before you come there. I recommend this to whoever wants a place that’s accessible to Malls, Restaurants, and Pulau.

my favourite place to stay in KK”

The price is reasonable and the location is very attractive to go anywhere in kota kinabalu.. right in the centre of KK city. towels are clean and thick and does not weird smell like most other budget hotels. there is only one problem that i always encountered by toilet users who do not flush after defecating.. feels disgusted whenever encounters that environments..maybe because many people stay here pay by monthly, so the cleanliness of the toilet is not maintained..other than that this is one of best budget place to stay in kota kinabalu

Compromised cleanliness ”

2.5-3/5 the place is fine for overnight stays, but not for longer stays. Place quite run down. One floor has two toilets and two showers, but only one toilet and one shower were functional. Washing machine was out of order for the entire duration of the stay. Bathroom sink has very small water pressure, and the kitchen sink sometimes has no running water and you have to wait for it to come back. The place was not kept very clean, when I first checked into the private room there was a clump of hair in the corner. The toilet was also very dirty for most of my stay, not sure how often they clean it. I requested the staff to clean the toilet specifying the stains on the toilet seat, they responded after a few hours and when I returned they only cleaned the toilet seat and not the rest of the toilet. Saw a rat in the pantry one night. Pantry and living area was ok, only the fridge had a bit of a rancid smell. There was a 3L water dispenser that they refilled every morning. Best thing about the place is the location, very convenient and there are many places to eat and convenience stores within less than 5min walking distance. Area decently active and lit during the night, so walking around at night feels quite safe.

Not as good anymore”

I booked room with fan. Using Aircon entails extra charge of RM10 but only from 8pm to 8am. Room is reasonably clean. But external facilities are just so so, not very clean due to its age. There was management change and now they don't provide breakfast anymore. There are better places to stay in unless you really need to save that small sum. I chose this place due to the location. I find it very difficult to recommend the place.
