A excellent location with great hospitality, but those with heavy luggage shouldn't consider to stay, because they have no elevator and rooms are up to 5th floor, we didn't have heavy luggage but had the room on 5th floor doesn't sound good whilst having extremely sore legs after hiking
Room and toilet clean. Affordable and nice.
Comfort and strategic place. Nearest to market.
Need to improve on service. The only great thing is location.
Friendly uncle and make my check in and check out easier. But at night I stay, heard some girls running and laughing. Don't know their workers or their customers.
Everything is ok but this hotel don't have lift

A good budget backpacker hotel
For a backpacker who's used to dingy hostels, this hotel has relatively great rooms - clean and good, comfortable bed. The street noise may put you off, but we had good sleep regardless, so it didn't really affect our stay. The wifi didn't work so we sought internet elsewhere (see Imago mall!). The bathroom was clean enough but everything gets soaked if you have a shower, as there is no curtain/glass to separate it from the sink/toilet. Toiletries were basic (shampoo/shower gel) but okay. The staff on the front were lovely and welcoming, though our room didn't get cleaned/made up while we were there (3 nights). The area isn't the greatest, but it is backpacker central, and it's in quite a good location to get to places in KK. Within walking distance are large malls, some more 'local' than others, the best of which we found was the Imago mall which was around 20 minutes walk and has good wifi. Also the night markets are quite nice to browse; there is one right outside the hotel that seems to pack up around 8-9pm, as well as a large market near the water, selling all sorts of fresh food goods and clothing. Overall a good, cheap option to stay a night or two, but any more may annoy you, depending on your tolerance of the above!

The ground floor quite noisy
I got ground floor when I booked. The room was quite noisy as maybe it is near the reception counter. And at night, I seems to always awake due to noise people knocking next room or people talking outside. The room had weak phone signal and internet. But, if you don't mind the noise then this is your hotel of choice.

Nice owner but room needs more improvement
The location of this hotel is good because it is at the center of Kota Kinabalu. It is walking distance to the nearest attractions like the Atkinson Tower, Filipino Handricraft Market and Jesselton Point. However, the rooms need more improvement. We were first placed in a corner room that has poor internet connection. They only provide 2 soaps, without shampoo or toothbrush. Only 2 towels were also provided even if they knew that 3 pax had booked the room. The hotel owner was nice enough to transfer us to another room but still the wifi was bad. Only Malaysian channels are available on TV though this is not a problem because we were mostly out. The bidet was disgusting but I think it is common in most Malaysian toilets. It makes the floor totally wet. The rooms are not sound proof. We only got this hotel through flight + hotel package from Expedia. Cheap price but perhaps it is better to book them separately next time. Though I am a backpacker and have seen the worst accommodations for the past years, this hotel is not recommended for families with small kids or those who are particular with clean and dry bathrooms. During checkout, the owner also attempted to help in booking our car to the airport. Grab and Uber can be booked easily in Kota Kinabalu.

Decent place, great location
A hotel i would recommend if you are on a budget. Very decent, all the basics you would need and clean. Night market just opposite the hotel every night. Nearby the hotel there's plenty of convenient shops and also eateries. Plenty of parking in front of the hotel also but make sure to buy parking tickets or be prepared to pay RM30 for penalty.
