Overall ok. Stay private room. But suggested for toilet cleanliness and facilities can be further improve. Ok but there is still room for improvement. Wonder still got few guests wearing shoes or sandals upstairs.

Comfortable hostle
Really comfortable communal area, love the indoor outdoor flow. Staff are friendly and helpful, price is decent, breakfast included and generous. Good security for valuables Only problem is the plugs in the dorm are temperamental, showerheads are broken and go unfixed when mentioned to staff, same with door handles and locks on the bathroom.

Good hostel
Well priced private rooms, internet works properly (in the common area) - unlike most places we stayed in Sabah. There are also computers which are free to use, ideal for planning etc. Close to good food and a couple malls

Very basic
Very basic hostel. Bed was comfy but only had a small blanket. Bathrooms were mostly clean but one out of the two showers wasn't working very well. Lockers were absolutely tiny, not even big enough for a laptop. Breakfast was okay but basic. It's in a fairly good location, although on Sundays the market is right outside and starts at 6am. Staff were friendly, but there was no atmosphere whatsoever.

Welcome home
Great value for what you pay for. Super friendly staff who truly cares about every single guest. Good wifi. Located close to shoping malls and great local restaurants. Comfortable beds. They have good contact with more or less every arranger so if you got any activities planned ayh will help you with everything.

One of the best hostels in KK
Excellent location, just a minute walk from the bus stop and it's along Gaya Street. It really worth, easy and convenient to go around. The staff were friendly. We stayed in a private room. Breakfast can be better.
