          Good place to put a night before driving out of the city”
          I reached this guesthouse pretty late at night because i had some problems with my car. Staff was friendly and showed me where my room was. Parking wasn't a trouble as there are ample parking spaces after office hours. But remember to place a coupon for every hour you want to park your car starting from 8am.

          Splendid guesthouse!”
          It’s no luxury but for a guesthouse Borneo Backpacker meet all the essential needs. Clean room, clean toilet and common room. Free and simple breakfast. Balconies, rooftop and a bar/restaurant for hanging out and breathe of fresh air. Only thing, the room need more hanging clothes hooks.

          Cheap and still worth the money”
          Good location, stayed once in the dorm room, once in double room. Bar downstairs for socialising. Wifi was good. Plus a few cats roaming round lobby so pro if you like cats Con if you don't I guess.

          Facilities (Shower & Bed)”
          - The water pressure is slightly slow. Took me a while to complete my bath session. - Bed sheet is a little bit dusty even though it is new especially the top bunker. Guess that maybe the customers seldom use the top one so the hostel management leave it like so.

          The lady at the reception was nice, the hostel was clean and there is a cozy terrace on the roof:) We believe that the breakfast could be improved and you can find better value for money in the same area.

          Lots of character. Felt like a home away from home. Stayed in a private room with my partner. Very basic. Only had one blanket for the both of us, not sure if they forgot to put another one or thought it would be too hot anyway. A towel provided for both of us. Bar downstairs. There was a salsa night the day we arrived. Great central location! Would definitely stay here again.

          You don't want to pay expensive rate for accommodation if you're planning to enjoy what Sabah can offer - islands, beaches, shopping, seafood, mountains, sightseeing, etc.

          Pros: Heritage building with nicely decorated rooms. Sweet kitty who wanders around. Not far of a walk from the waterfront, restaurants, a couple of malls, the jetty for ferries, and the bus to Kinabalu park. Cons: School groups dominating common area space and making lots of noise. Internet barely worked, and cut out completely on our last night in the middle of us booking our onward travel. It was still not up and running even the next morning. Toaster for breakfast needed to be held down in order to function and took forever to even warm up a slice of bread.
