Friendly management, very homey atmosphere, and clean!
I thought it's a feel-like-home hostel but sadly it doesn't really meet my expectation.

Hide and seek for cats
Our first night in KK and the friendly Shaun helped us out getting settled in. The rooms are basic - just a mattress and side table in ours, and a hidden cat in the corner! Cat number two was found in the bread basket circa 00:00. Having breakfast included made it easier for Freshers in town (although it's just toast, they have marmite!) And they also sorted us out with a same day booking into jungle jack's to climb Mt Kinabalu - which was really handy. A good option for a short stay, unless you are allergic to cats

Feels like home!
A great place to stay. Reasonably priced. Well monitored and clean.No bed bugs issue. There is no A/C nor water heater. Which is something I dont really care about. Strategic location. Doors get locked at midnight which is something I admire and respect as there will be no noise from people coming in.

Definitely five stars - for no other reason than Lucy provided that great British spread of Marmite which I have not tasted for quite a while on my travels!! Other spreads familiar to westerners were also available. Lucy was very smart and helpful, the accommodation was basic but comfortable. I enjoyed staying with the family, who were all very friendly and kind. I will definitely be back when I'm next in town, if only to see how the little baby has grown (he was three months, but don't worry, he's not a noisy one, just super cute!). You're in a good location here also, just five mins slow walk from the bus station and all the restaurants and shops. Super!!

Nice and central place in KK
Very cental location, the staff is totally friendly, the rooms and bathrooms are very clean, doors get locked at midnight so it isn't a party place, a nice spot is the green balcony, dorms are 22RM per person and night, toast breakfast is included and there is a water dispenser. I would recomend it to every backpacker!
