Nice spacious place, great location

Room of my own with aircon, plenty of space, near a nice beach
All in all very good. I had booked a bed in a dorm but had a room of my own with aircon for a very low price. To all those idiots who complained about the location: Why do you think it's called beach house? Probably because it's near the beach and not in the city center! So don't complain "there is nothing nearby" (which isn't true anyway) but book a hostel in the center if you want to be there. There is a great beach nearby, a big inexpensive food court, other restaurants and cafes, also several parks. The house consists of 2 buildings, both of which have well equipped kitchens and spacious living rooms. There is plenty of space around the houses also. The road may be a bit noisy at times but if you stay in the house further away from the traffic it's ok. Even if the place is a bit run down, there is a lot that compensates its shortcomings.

Location, Reception
The light in toilet is too weak. The toilet condition is not that good. The location of the hotel is very nice. very close to T2 airport of KK. The reception is nice and helpful. Provided useful information to me.

10min walk to KK airport!

close proximity to airport, affordable, simple
I was transiting at KK airport and need a night stay before my next flight. Borneo Beachouse is the closest accommodation (within 10 min walk) that I could find and it's affordable. The male dorm has no air cond and it was warm when I was trying to sleep but cold when I got up about 6am in the morning. Overall, i think it's a good place for a night stay before getting to the airport.

Near to terminal 2

Located near to terminal 2 airport
best thing about this hostel is it located near to terminal 2 airport and tanjung aru beach. Walking distance 5 minutes to 10 minutes to these two places.

No fuss. Sweetest Staff

Staff, location, homey feel
It was short but absolutely homey. What the inn lacked in facilities it compensated on customer service.
