Affordable price
Lulu C. Solo travelers Philippines, February 25, 2014
Affordable, Comfortable, Accessible

Friendly staff, I was just like in a typical boarding house in the Philippines, Affordable price
I enjoyed my stay at the hotel as i felt that i was just back in my hometown. Staff welcomed me with warm smile and guided me to the room. Though the room is shared with male and female, no reason to be uncomfortable as most of us became friends. There was no fear on my end to lose anything as we trusted one another but of course always keep your passport secured and other very valuable items. The room is clean as no outside shoes or slippers is allowed inside. The bed is not the best but if you get tired of walking, strolling the whole day in Kota Kinabalu you would not even bother to notice and would have a deep sleep. In the morning, breakfast is bread, butter, jam and coffee, I liked it. I just did not like the dish sponge as it was all worn out. The restroom is alright and clean but the flush of the toilet in one of my ladies room was not working and the floor was always wet. Overall, experience was satisfactory what was important was the people I met and had been with during my stay. Though I traveled alone going to Kota, after 3 nights and 4 days of stay, I gained 4 additional friends and enjoyed the place with them. It is a small world after all.

Easy to access to airport.

Easy access to airport. Cheap transport available to go airport. Cheap for backpackers.
It is affordable and cheap for budgeted traveller. They also provide transport to Airport which is cheap and ease. Borneo Global Backpackers also near to airport, it will be less traffic when rush to airport.

Brian Z. Solo travelers United States of America, April 25, 2013
would probably look elsewhere

helpful staff, not much else
First, where credit is due: helpful staff, AC and hot showers that work fine, private rooms. But if I came back to town, I would probably try a different place. The room was not ready when I arrived, and smelled kind of gross. Furniture was the least comfortable imaginable, and the only window (with no curtain) was perfectly aligned so that the hallway light would shine in my face while I was trying to sleep. I was woken up one night by staff doing laundry out in the hall at 1am. Location was not that great either. The people who work here are very nice but they need to make some investments in improving the place before I would recommend.
