It had already closed down!!!!
We booked a room for these two nights last few months together with our flight tickets. But when we had arrived here, we walked & walked so as to look for this hotel for almost an hour, while we had also asked so many people. Finally, what we can only found is it had already closed down!!!! In fact, we really cannot understand why no one noticing us as we had already paid our rents for the room and it just closed down!!! For now, we walked so crazily and found the building become another hotel as "Lodge 58", different owner, different hotel... No records for our bookings, and we have no way to get back our money and we have to find another hotel.

Don't go here
There were no lights in the hallway, no real door to the toilet in the room, no lock on the "door" of the toilet. The beds makes a lot of sound when you move. A lot of noise coming from the streets at night. The price was good but I think you can get so much better rooms somewhere else!

Charged Us Twice and Lied!!
We arrived from Kota kinabalu airport at summer lodge hostel on a Friday evening around 10pm. We had booked a double room with a window for £35 for two nights, paid in full, in my name, via expedia.com. On arrival they asked for our booking name, found it, but said the room was no longer available (despite the booking being guaranteed for late check in and paid in full prior to arrival). We accepted this and asked for an alternative room which they gave us, and charged us again for the two nights stay - hence we paid twice. On realising this, we approached the desk man and explained, provided receipts from them as well as the receipt and booking confirmation from expedia. The desk boy phoned the owner and said to us he would come to see us to issue the refund in one hour. He never turned up and we did not hear from them again. We also filed a formal complaint with Expedia but are yet to hear from them. INCREDIBLY ANNOYED AND DISAPPOINTED. In addition there were cockroaches in our room and the door lock was broken.

Convenient place
Located along Gaya street, it's a cheap n convenient option for travelers. Room is nothing great but for the pricing I guess tats wat u get. Lots of eateries ard the area n there are malls, supermarket n pharmacy making it easy to look for amenities n food.

Very disappointed!
We needed a place to use for just a few hours (to rest before our flight back home), so I searched for a cheap place with air-conditioning and a hot shower...and found Summer Lodge. I used "Lonely Planet" as a reference, as it stated that the people were very friendly. Sadly, this was not so. The man on the front desk spoke no English, the other staff member had a hangover (?) and would not help us, to the man telephoned the owner (?) and we did the check-in over the phone. We finally got our key to our room...went inside...and were disappointed by the mouldy smell and mouldy walls. However, the air-conditioner was new, and the bath and toilet was clean. The hot shower was very good. We did not feel very safe in this hostel, so were pleased to only be staying here for a few hours.
