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.

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

best stopover for terminal 2 airport flyers

Right next to terminal 2 airport and tanjung aru beach, cute kittens
located a ten minute walk from the airport, it is easy to reach and catch your flight without needing taxi. Easy to find being at the end of the main road and just before the beach. Go to tanjung aru for the incredible sunset and foodstalls. If going to kk city, there are purple buses 1.5 rinngit and take around 20-30minutes.

Weekend Break in Kota Kinabalu

It is close to the airport, near the beach and local food outlets
Nothing really wrong with the stay except the shared bathroom was filthy, there were no taps on the bath. It was such a state hat I decided not to use the facilities and used those at the Shangri-La resort just 700m away. The rooms do not have any air conditioning just a ceiling fan The windows have bars on the outside and in my opinion prevent escape in the event of an emergency The place is just run down and require complete renovation

Dirty, but location is good, close to the airport

location to airport and beach
just one night stay to catch the early morning flight from KK to Taipei, the condition is quite bad, but it's okay if you only stay for one night

Friendly staff but the condition of the hotel is p

The staff were very kind and friendly to me. Good hospitality. But in the condition in the room was very poor. The furniture were old plus the floor was a bit oily.
