A place to just sleep.
Location is not convenient except near the beach. However, the rate is pretty cheap. Room is very old and not so clean.

Decent place to stay if your saving money
The place is big. Staff are friendly. But the facilities are not that good. Told several staffs about the leaking water at the bathroom. Its costing them money but they dont seem to want to fix it. I want this place to improve

terrible and worst stay ever!!
The kota kinabalu airport has switched to a new terminal, the hostel is no longer walking distance from the airport, the only transport to there is only taxi and it cost RM30.00 one way. Overall the hostel is ruined down, the room was really dirty with full of mosquitoes and dust, toilet is disguising, no any facilities were provided, air-con not functioning.

nice + pleasant
pleasant staff, good rooms, near beach
nice stay, staff are lovely and very helpful. near a great beach too with its own food court. Restaurant next to it is very good too. Rooms are decent, place is nice and quiet and relaxed. Location isnt ideal, it is possible to get a minivan into town for next to nothing or get ripped off by a taxi. overall though very pleasant.

Best budget hostel near airport
near airport, cheap, nice staff
My flight supposed to arrive at 10pm but for some reasons it was delayed an hour. I left immigration desk around midnight. I walked to to this hostel under light rainy on empty street. It took less than 10 minutes to get this hotel. I know it's the one and only budget hostel you can get near airport. I was afraid there are no more staff on the receptionist desk because it already 12.30am. Even though I've already sent email to let them know about my flight. I was lucky a smiling receptionist girl was waiting for me. Most of staff here were nice and friendly. The only thing i don't like was I couldn't get any place to get something to eat at dnight. The neighborhood like a ghost city. There was only one small shopping mall within walking distance but they closed earlier. I went here the next morning. Not many choices for breakfast here. My bed was bit dirty. Dust everywhere. actually, still not a big deal for me. I understand what you paid is what you get. Save midnight surcharge taxi to get to downtown before I moved to another better place next day is the only reason I stayed here.
