We booked one night here as we were flying back into KK and then out again the next day. Although the beach isn't amazing it is very close and the local food on the beach is cheap and tasty. It is only Rm 1 on the bus into KK city and having stayed in the city I would definitely recommend... More

A convenient hostel for the nearby beach and airport, run by friendly staff. The rooms are adequate but cleanliness of the communal areas left a bit to be desired...a line of ants in the bathroom and the kitchen wasn't so inviting! Beds and rooms are basic but comfortable, the building is set back from the road so not noisy, and... More

The only reason I chose this hotel is we didn't want to sleep in KK airport when we arrived midnight. It's only a 10 minute's easy walk from Terminal 2. Maybe the other reason choosing it is an early departure, because we saw a couple of Taiwanese were leaving when we arrive at 4 AM. It looks like a local... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Borneo BeacHouse. It was close to the beach and relaxing - just what we wanted. The bathrooms aren't the best, but we didn't seem to mind at all. We stayed in a room without AC, which was fine. It was surprisingly cool at night. The best thing about this hostel is (hands down) the... More

I expected this to be rough from other posters' reviews. I didn't know how rough though. The walls were falling down and leaking, the AC barely worked, the bathrooms were prison like and had no lights. When we checked in someone had urinated all over one of the bathrooms and it was not cleaned up until the next morning. The... More

Hi there, to start with: If you have a chance to stay anywhere else, while you are in KK, then do so. This place was a disappointment on the whole line. The good News is: The staff is really nice and friendly, and they try to help where they can. But the whole place is just completely run down. The... More

The Borneo Beachouse (why only one "h", I wonder) is actually two converted bungalows near the city beach in Kota Kinabalu. Its a bit outside of town but thats not a problem as there are taxis and buses running near by. The place is clean and well run with friendly staff. I have stayed there several times when I'm in...
