“Comfortable Place to stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

The front office staff was very helpful. All basic facilities were provided and the room was very clean. I had a very good sleep at this place.
The Phillipines and wet market are just across the road. Restaurants/coffee shops are available everywhere. There was a night market at night at this place.

Room Tip: Choose a room which is not next to the counter/front office because it is next to the staircase and...

3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

You need to climb 2 flights of stairs which are unclean, but on arrival at the check-in things improve. Staff are courteous and helpful. Rooms are adequate with hot shower. Nice flate screen TV, but only one channel with English programs for a few hours each day - the rest of the time the programs are either in Malay or languages from Sri Lanka and India. Many restaurants and shops in walking distance. Good value for the money I paid.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013 via mobile

This place is listed in agoda, booking.com etc. So it seems to be quite popular with budget travellers. I stayed for three nights in two different rooms. The first room was and rooms room which was spacious and clean. The second room was a family room which was only a little bigger than the double but looked a lot older with a spoilt water heater.

The walls or partitioning between rooms are plywood and therefore you can hear noises from the outside or other rooms clearly. You will not be getting a good night's rest if you are unlucky to get noisy neighbours who like to have the tv on all night.

Sheets were clean but the second room really looked very old.

There are only a handful of local channels and signal is poor.

Free wifi in rooms.

Friendly staff and good location opposite the Philippine market which is within walking distance of most major touristy areas. There is a bustling night market just across the road. It is about a 20 minute walk to the wawasan bus terminal and the jesselton ferry point.

The rooms are cheap at around 57 per double room. In terms of value, you probably can't find a better or cheaper place in such a convenient location.

However, pay a bit more and you'll get better accommodation elsewhere.
