They are willing to help us to know about Kota Kinabalu. Giving us good advice where we go around. The hotel is very clean too, they provide hot water to shower.... More

Good location and friendly crew. Room and bathroom OK - nothing special. A lot of ants everywhere. Standard malaysian breakfast - tosts & jam. It's ok place to stay for this price. About 15 min by foot to main market.

It was my first experience arranging my stay through Airbnb. Knowing that I will have a moderate stay in the hostel, I did not set high expectation at all. The warm hospitality by the host top it all as the staffs are very friendly and helpful. The room was just comfortable enough as I was in town for the Borneo... More

The hotel is nice and clean. A/C runs cold. Really cool location, right off the night market and a very close walk (5 mins) to the pub street/boardwalk. Less than 10 minute walk to some of the other pubs and live music. We had a problem retrieving our laundry (from somewhere else, NOT victoria) on the day we had to... More

I booked this hotel because I have read good reviews of it. The staff is friendly to everyone. The room was also great although there is no cabled channels on the television. Unless you're Malay, don't bother opening the tv. The door cannot also be locked from the outside since it does not have a doorknob, there is a hook... More

The staff were incredibly helpful at the hotel, assisting with taxis and booking transport. Our room was on the third floor, despite the long walk up the stairs it was quiet and well maintained with little noise from outside. Breakfast is simple, toast and fruit with hot drinks but more than adequate. The location of the hotel is great, walking... More

We stayed at the private room, common bathroom and the hotel was clean. As long as there is no others who were using the toilet. Lol. The owner was really nice and helpful. He even managed our tour to Kinabatangan and Sepilok. If you need a clean budget hotel, this is the one :)

Booked this room online and contacted the owner, she sounds helpful and friendly. However, the condition in the hotel is unacceptable and expensive. The walkway to the room located at 2nd floor was dark and going through stinky staircase. Picture tells a thousand words.
