This place is very clean, affordable on a budget, and in a great location to do a variety of things around the city. They offer a myriad of tours, so it is easy to explore the rest of Sabah from here. My favorite part was that it is located directly across from the central market where we bought a few lunches and dinners to cook. The hostel offers free range of their kitchen, so it is easy to make your own meals with local foods from the market. The staff here are wonderful and offer great service. I stayed here 3 nights during my stay, and I enjoyed each of them. I would recommend it to any backpacker looking for a good place to stay inbetween their adventures.
