spacious and cozy. stayed in a dorm room for the first half and really enjoyed the beds. there's also private lockers provided, and the front desk has battery adapters to loan for free. the bathrooms are out back, but there are enough showers that i never had to wait for one. pretty awesome for all the mt. kinabalu hikers passing through! stayed in a private twin room for the second half, which was much closer to the bathrooms. sometimes we could hear people walking by or speaking, but the walls weren't so thin that it was a huge bother.
there's food around the clock - bread and jam and usually fruit! the crowd that comes here is amazeballs; we met several people from taiwan and had dinner with some others, and it was cool to swap stories or advice about the mt. k hike.
oh and the hostel lets you store your luggage there while you're off hiking.
