    Value for money for this price”

    Generally for this price range and location, it is pretty good (they supply the towel and toothbrush/paste too). A bit difficult to find initially as they are upstairs (above the 711) but not much issue afterwards. staff are friendly and helpful. The downside is the toliets tend to flood when many people are using it, I guess their drainage system are not that good but given the price range really cannot complain much.

    Definitely visiting again”

    Everything was so good about staying here. Had a good time meeting other guests, the rooms were sufficiently comfortable and the friendly staff made sure the bedding, towels and the facilities were clean. Location is conveniently close to the waterfront (15 minutes walk) and is surrounded by grocery shops, restaurants and cafes. Will check-in again in my next solo trip to Kota Kinabalu

    Nice view- have proof of payment ”

    No internet- they rely text from near by village to confirm payment. I paid, but didn’t have proof of payment so had to pay cash. Agoda reimburses me..... View is good and beds comfy. No filtered water system available. Advice - negotiate coming down the hill or hotel sending someone up the hill - do not get out a junction. If you do, the walk isn’t terrible, but we asked the guy to pick us up there the next day. The walk down the hill took 35min and then 20min to hotel. So going up would take at least 1.5hrs if I’m good shape. We got to bottom of hill and paid someone 300 pesos to van is to junction (2 people). Then 550 to take us back to tourist office.

    10rm tourism fee cash per night - misleading”

    I booked this hostel after having decent reviews and such a low price. However, the price is low because they charge 10rm tourism fee in cash.... so basically the same price as every other cheap hostel. For me, I was trying to save cash and just use card- so this sucked. They do provide a towel, small soap and toothbrush and toothpaste if needed. Very basic breakfast. Posted notices about local attractions but staff isn’t always so knowing. The place is really just a cheap dorm hotel - not a hostel. BUT backpackers come and you can talk with them.

    ガバメンタル・タックス / Governmental Tax”

    チェックイン時にガバメンタルタックスと、1泊10RMの追加支払を求められた。ウェブでカード支払い済みで、それを断った。3泊後のチェックアウト時再度それを迫られ30RM払わされた。5日後の再訪時チェックインの際満室だと断られた。予約を見せるとベッドが空いており案内された。そして、また10RMの追加料金。同じ行中のマレーシアの2都市で、このような追加料金はなかった。このホステルには宿泊すべきでない。アゴダも名誉棄損のこれと契約解除すべき。 I was ordered to pay 10 more RM a night as they said governmental tax at check in. The payment had been finished with my credit card at the same time with the reservation, I declined the payment. But they insisted it again and forced me to pay totally 30 RM at check out after 3 night stay there. 5 days later, I visited there again after making a reservation on Agoda. They told me full and no bet available. I showed my reservation on my mobile and then I was taken to a bed and they also forced me to pay 10 RM as the tax again. The accommodations in the other two cities in Malaysia I had visited in the same travel, no order such as governmental tax. No one should stay this illegal hostel. Agoda also should finish contract with them because they made Agoda dishonorable.

    Easy to locate at Api-Api centre which is centralized area with 10-20 mins walk to either side, Imago mall or Gaya street. But negative point is there are only 2 washrooms available for all in house shared guests.

    It is a cheap hostel but I don't like the limited shared toilets. The beds are double decker type with no curtains for some privacy. Just for 1night stay i think it is enough. Near to the city, reachable within distance.
