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.
