The hotel is more like a backpackers lodge than a hotel. Location is good if you are interested in visiting the island close-by, but don't expect anything else. The street is very loud at night as well.

Stayed in February 2014 for 10 nights. The Staff were excellent, and the hotel was clean and tidy. We were supplied with fresh water daily, as well as toiletries, clean towels and the room cleaned whenever we asked. For the price we paid it was well worth it. Slept really well with having a windowless, very dark room - not... More

Hotel is very comfortable, clean and cheap. Has ample parking space and not too far from the downtown, only five minutes was able to arrived at Jalan Gaya which is very famous in Kota Kinabalu. Servicing of cleaning of the rooms was also very good.

The hotel is generally nice and in a good location. The rooms are en suite with air con and tv. We had a few good nights here and were happy to keep returning. When the hotel is busy, it can become noisy. The walls are thin so you here everything. Shame as because of this I can't really recommend whole... More

There are so many hotels of all types and categories in Kota Kinabalu. Competition is high but even with that many places, hotels here often display a "full" sign on their doors. Still it is no excuse to have dirty rooms and this hotel is guilty of that! Yes it is a budget hotel but there are many other budget... More

Probably the worst hotel I have ever stayed at for one night (supposed to be a second but I changed my plans!) Dirty, bugs, noisy and broken appliances (free internet in lobby, if you could get the machine to turn on).
