present stay in sabah
i booked the package from asiago but the original hostel went out of biz so i was transferred to this hostel. i am not quite sure on my booking but karen was so kind to put me in dorm with aircon. the male staff, sham, is particularly helpful. my returning flight was in early morning prior to the first airport bus, he helped me to book grab car at 4am. it is really a nice hostel.

So good stayed here 3 times in my visit to Borneo
Excellent staff. Local knowledge was fantastic. Karen the owner really made us feel at home and was super helpful. We are a family of 4 and our 18 yr old girls had a great time, so much that we stayed here 3 times on our travels. Excellent for families, single travellers. Very affordable with breakfast included and endless coffee!!! Great wifi which always helps! Will use again 100%.

Staff and location simply wonderful
Like the title suggested, the staff is very friendly, fluent in English and the location is nearby everything you'd want to do as a tourist. The rooms are clean and the common room is cosy and practical (free water, fridge, cutlery, tv, excellent wifi). Breakfast is included in the price, and it's the sort of breakfast that fills you up properly. Because of the central location, you'll have to deal with the city's noise, but it's not really bothering or keeping you from a good nights' sleep. Altogether, me and my 4 travelling companions had a very good experience here. Highly recommended!

School expedition trip
I stayed here along with students from my college and 2 other members of staff. I have never stayed in a hostel before and was pleasantly surprised. Clean rooms, hot water and friendly staff. Comfortable bed and excellent location for night market

Look nice and clean
Look nice and clean but got bitten by flea or bed bug, 2 weeks later still hitching 😿 Maybe due to the fact that I went during low season so bed blankets were not washed regularly? Otherwise the location was great, near the waterfront and nightlife area The staff was friendly and helpful to book activities around KK such as idling hopping, ATV, and the cultural village
