We stayed here for one night after returning from a jungle wildlife tour and were disappointed. The windowless room smelled really musty and the bathroom was a bit gross. Someone had left a used sanitary towel on the back of the cistern and it remained there for our stay until I couldn't take it any more and threw it out... More

Just spent 5 weeks at this lodge, last year 4 weeks, and had amazing stay, mainly due to the owners. The owner Sheila and her mother are the nicest and most helpful people you will ever meet. Excellent location and very clean, you must stay here

Pro's Location A/C Hot Showers Cheap Clean Con's Loud (bar next door) It was a good place to sleep. Really close to everything and great local restaurants around. Avoid the western bar style ones, there over priced.

We came here with no expectations and that helped :) It is a small guesthouse with 5 rooms. You get what you pay for since KK is expensive compared to other places in SE-Asia. There is a pub nearby and you can here it all the night but we could sleep :) the AC in our room was very good... More

This is very basic accommodation, but what more do you need than a bed (a/c available), bathroom and wifi. The wifi signal reached the rooms which was convenient. The owner/manager of this place is a sweet and helpful lady, able to answer our queries about how to keep busy in kota kinabalu.

I booked 1 night on booking.com and even though I stayed in the room at 20 ringgint I had to pay 25 because I booked via internet. There was only 1 key per dorm, which was a small room with 3 bunk beds, very noisy place too! No locker as well! The breakfast was fair though. There are other good... More

The Asia Adventure Lodge is a small backpacker lodge in the centre of the tourist area in Gaya Street, Kota Kinabalu. There are a total of 6 rooms being a mix of small dorms and private rooms. We stayed in a private double... More

I stayed in their Hostel for 4 nights and was just amazed how friendly they treated me during my stay. They will help you with everything and can also organize trips for a good deal, which is always easier and cheaper than doing it through an agency. The rooms are good for the price and breakfast is included. Bathrooms and... More
