“Basic but basic is better than crap.”
Reviewed June 5, 2012

This place is pretty sweet. The rooms don't have windows but who needs a window? A window is just a hole in your wall that wakes you up with sunlight in the morning. Forget windows. Come to the darkside. I slept in longer at this place than I have in any other place I've stayed in my 5 months of traveling. The people who run it are pretty nice. The older lady laughed every time I saw her. I think she thought I was funny looking but I don't care -- as long as she's happy. The location is great. The taxi drivers might not know it but tell them to take you to X-plorer Backpackers (it's right next door). Around the corner you'll find a restaurant on a corner that makes amazing Islamic food. The fresh roti is worth converting to a muslim for, and going Jihad all over the place. I've totally digressed. Asia Adventure Lodge, or AAL as I like to call it, is a great option in Kota Kinabalu, or KK as I like to call it. Internet, breakfast (toast, jam, and coffee) and a shared bathroom with hot water. What an adventure... Asian style!

Stayed May 2012, traveled as a couple
