Rooms were clean, beds comfortable, staff were friendly. Can get a little noisy from the karaoke bar across the road, but it didn't stop us from having a good night's sleep. Wifi was pretty slow. The tv was nice to have, even if there was omly 1 english language channel. Central location - near the night market, gaya Sunday market, shopping centres, fish market, jesselton quay.

The hotel quite ok, the surroundings not
Cheap hotel, clean room, a bit noisy from the street behind the window. Otherwise ok but on the street in front of the hotel there were several garbage cans and a lot of rats running there. Disgusting!

Simple, cheap, safe, staff are friendly
We stayed here 2 nights, as we wanted a place central but not expensive as we are back packing and knew we wouldn't be staying in the hotel all day. Just needed a bed to sleep. It's a run down area but don't let that put you off entirely, most of KK is run down and after all, it's not why you come to Sabah. The hotel itself is simple, clean and what you pay for. The air con is a godsend. TV, towels, simple bathroom freebies and a hot shower (hotest if the pressure of water is lower). The shower is typically Asia, with the entire bathroom being a wet room water will flow everywhere. But that's fine too. The Air con dries it quickly. The bed was comfortable, unless you can't for any reason have the aircon on all night like we couldn't (scuba diving) you will be hot and sticky as Sabah is humid as hell. The pillows weren't my favourite but my OH didn't have a problem with them. Room is small but from our experience everywhere in central kk is small. Generally felt really safe leaving our stuff there, staff were always friendly with smiles and pleasant. Sabah itself is super safe. Good for backpackers who know they won't be in the hotel all day. Over all its great value for money if you have to stay in budget hotels and don't like hostels dorms. Only issue is the streets of KK are super noisy most of the night so if you are a light sleeper you won't sleep much at all. Also neighbouring guests were really noisy most nights but that's not the hotels fault either.

Simple but a cheap place to stay in the centre!
Nice room with tv and HBO channel in english. Great location with BK and KFC 20 m away, riverside one block away and close to both malls and smaller shops. The staff was very nice and the owner offered to help me post my postcards because I didn't have enough time. Had to struggle a little bit with the wifi, AC and also the wake-up call didn't work. But overall a good budget choice!

Noisy pub and road
Try to request rooms that are not close to the nearby pub or facing the road cause it was too noisy. Tried to ask to change room but was denied since we already paid. However awesome locations and hot shower
