- Backpacking
such a great place to stay. would recommend this to friends
- Backpacking
Nice, quiet and clean. also spacious lobby converted as living and dining areas. I like their unlimited coffee 24/7, abundant breakfast, WiFi and approachable staff. the hostel is about 5-10mins drive (uber/grab) to the city proper.
- Backpacking
Nice breakfast, nice location, near food court.
- Backpacking
The service was excellent! They have the best staff that keep the place nice and clean. I noticed not a lot of people walk in Kota Kinabalu but the place is still central if you like to walk. I walked all the way to the famous banana leaf rice place which was only about 1++ kilometers away. The breakfast though was only toast and spread plus a few noodles but I can't complain because of the price of the accommodations which was only around 10USD per night (or even less)
Very nice, clean and comfortable. Awesome place!
- Business travel
The place was really clean and thoughtfully designed. Toilets were a little cramped but still not bad as it was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was basic but for the price paid, pretty good.
This is the place where you get more than what you paid. The stay was very good except one thing less expectation i.e. the cups sometime not rinsed properly and caused detergent smell.
- Backpacking
What a wow experience staying there. The location is so good. Near to the center of Kota Kinabalu. You can go here and there by grab/uber with around Rm5 fare. The price is so cheap with the accommodations provided. Recommended to all backpackers or solo travellers. Along @ Suardi the receptionist was so warm and friendly. He’s a good staff. He helps a lot. Skypod is better with Suardi there.
- Backpacking
Awesome staff, clean place with lots of privacy for a dorm and really good location.
- Backpacking
Very nice, comfortable, friendly receptionist and staffs crews. thumbs up!
