Lavender Lodge is cheap and clean. Just the way I usually like my accommodations. Usually I am a very budget conscious backpacker, but on my recent trip to Malaysian Borneo my boyfriend and I decided to get a little ritzy, so we splurged and booked a deluxe room at the Lavender Lodge so we could have a room+bathroom to ourselves....

The Lavender Lodge was average- not good or bad in one way or the other. Nothing stood out as awful or great, it was just ok. I ended up leaving early and checking into the property next door. To be honest it wasn't as nice but it was half the price and the bathrooms were ensuite versus being shared like... More

The rooms very clean, but the deluxe ensuite rooms on the ground floor have no windows - that's not very nice for the price they ask you to pay. As we only slept in the room, it was not that bad. Overall the rooms are clean, the bathroom is tiny, but the water pressure is ok. The rooms are cleaned... More

We booked a double deluxe. The room was tiny and depressing it overlooked the delapidated building next door. The tiny bathroom was a joke couldn't even sit on the loo properly! So not worth the extra we paid. The irony was we were next door to the shared bathrooms which were so much bigger. The lame breakfast of toast and... More

The hostel is very clean and the rooms are big with good beds and airco. The bathrooms are clean and have nice, warm showers. The breakfast is nice with toast and fruit and the staff is very friendly!! Only the wifi doesn't work properly on the upper floors.

I had a double deluxe with private bathroom....what a hovel. We moved and decided to upgrade but we found a room right opposite that was the same price but offered TV, kettle in the room and a bathroom bigger than the bedroom at LL....a slight exaggeration but close. Bathroom in my room was smaller than the shared bathroom right outside... More

Centrally located backpackers, with a lovely staff. We spent 5 nights here in a twin room with my friend. The room was okay: the floor, the linen, the mattresses were all clean and not overused and the staff have changed the sheet and towels every day. The room had AC and a fan, both worked fine. There were hangers and... More

Excellent choice for backpackers and others looking for low price accomodation. The rooms are simple and a bit old-fashioned, but immaculately clean and functional. Very welcoming staff, decent wifi and good location. I've never seen a place get cleaned more often than this, which is good - especially if your room doesn't have a private bathroom and you have to... More
