We stayed here twice (at the beginning and end of our trip to Sabah) and liked it. First time we stayed they had messed up our booking (they had the right name on different dates for a different kind of room) but thankfully they were not full. We decided to stay in a twin room (rather than a dorm) as it is only slightly more expensive for two people (5 RM or so). The room was nice and clean with a/c. Toilets/showers were shared and OK clean. There is a nice common area where breakfast is served with a small kitchen and a washing machine to do laundry. Wifi also works well. Second time we arrived at about 5am on the bus from Semporna and they gave us a double room, which after a short sleep we changed because it was so smelly (of damp - I would recommend them to take out the carpet). They were very accommodating and gave us a very nice other double room. The location is convenient for walking around KK and the staff all very friendly.

This hostel can't really be faulted on location, it is easy walking distance around KK, in particular you can easily reach the water front and night markets.

Pluses are the hostel has its own car rental service and free breakie each morning.

Downsides are we had a private room with bathroom, which while completely adequate for cheap and cheerful accommodation, was a little dirty and 'cell' like with no windows. The staff also lacked a little in English skills or reccomendations of tours etc.

Room Tip: Our double with bathroom and shower was a premium price, but situated right by reception so was a little noisy. It didnt really bother us as we were tired from a days activities, but may trouble light sleepers, so you might like to sk if there are other rooms?

I stayed there back in Sept 2013 for 3 nights. It was well worth £5 a night, with enough toilets and showers to share. A kitchen area where you can cook a good meal. A laundry area and hanging facilities. The place is spotless, with comfy seating area with TV and very good wifi. Close to everything from shopping to food and bars. Very helpful receptionists, working round the clock.

I have been to KK three times now, and stayed in 3 different places, and this one was by far the best. A-C in the rooms which are clean and tidy, as well as the bathrooms. They have a great place to chill and eat breakfast. I can definitely recommend this place!

Room was clean when we check in and lounge nice with a small kitchen with the lemon colour. Staff was nice and there's ada small mini cyber also for rm3 per hour so u don't have to go far to find one. Tours also available and would like come again next year :-)
