    Cheap hostel in a city”

    I paid RM17 for a single bed in a shared room but there was no one occupied the second bed. So i was alone inside the room with the price only RM17! Fairly near to the city. There was no lift but for the price like that I think it is fair enough to climb the stairs to reach my room.

    Offer just the basic and location is convenient. Aircon is only available after 6pm and remote control was kept by the staff. There's no lift available but only staircases, wouldn't recommend for a stay after hiking mount KK.

    Pros: Quitet night, cold room, good wifi. Water available. Additional bathrooms besides the one in private rooms, so you can shower elsewhere and not soak your bathroom. Cons: not too many compared to other places in KK.

    The place is near to gaya street but there's without lift. And the room that assigned to us with some smell but when we requested with the responsible person, they allowed change the room for us. Those are shared bathrooms and toilets. Only one thing makes feel uncomfortable is the room with 3 beds are comes with only one plug/charger. They should provide at least 2 in 3 persons bedroom.

    A group of 6 of us book separately to stay in Lavender Lodge, and the owner is very attentive and assign two rooms right next to each other for us so that we could stay together. *Thumbs up!* We were allowed to keep our extra luggage with them so, that we don’t need to carry it with us when we went for Mt Kinabalu hike. :)

    Location, staff, value for money

    Although it is not in the centre of the old town, the seafood market which is located opposite to the hotel is one of the best in South East Asia. This gives an opportunities to you to have a late night supper even though your flight landed very late in Kota Kinabalu. Staff are very helpful too.

    Pleasantly surprised by how clean it was. Housekeeping cleans the rooms every day. Even the common bathrooms are clean, and has heated shower. Beds are clean and room is spacious. Absolute value for money. A bit tough to find parking at night as the area is near the night market and seafood restaurant.

    The room is clean and decorated in sweet home style with floral fabric sofas and a small working desk. However, I am not sure if the room is newly re-renovated, there was a strong rubber type of smells in the room, which made me and my friend feel really uncomfortable. But the staffs are really kind and helpful. They give good advice of food hunting and directory of the city

    the stay was very good. Firstly the hotel transport I requested came ontime just when I touched down. Upon arriving at the hotel, z was being greeted by friendly receptionist and arranged to check in real soon. It was a comfortable room. Surprisingly breakfast was available too although it was just a coffee and toasted bread with slices of fruits. Throughout the stay it was very pleasant, quiet and budgetly affordable for backpacking trip.

    Very friendly hotel staff, clean room

    The hotel staff were very friendly and they kept the room clean and orderly. Non-hotel guests should not be allowed inside the dorm room for security and the comfort of others in the dorm. I just came back from a long day walking and when I got inside the dorm room my dorm mate was having her pedicure done and the lady providing the services was sitting on my bed and placed the pedicure items on my bed. I was quite upset coz i couldnt use immediately my bed and i was very tired after a long day. Secondly, I didnt find it hygienic that the pedicure stuff were placed on my bed.

    Will definitely come back here again. The staff are very courteous and friendly. The breakfast is just toast and coffee/tea, but for the price, I'm not expecting much. The location is very central, though Kota Kinabalu is just a very small place. Good base to explore nearby islands and some beach activities. I just hope there's a better wifi connection and more electric outlets.

    Budget hotel done right”

    great value for money, friendly and helpful staff, central location

    I would recommend Lavender Lodge as jump off point for a trip in Sabah. It is about 15-20 minute walk from the port where you can go to other islands. We even took to ferry to Labuan en route to Brunei and it was very convenient. It is also accessible to the main area, Gaya Street. There's a convenience store nearby and a lot of dining options. The staff are friendly and very helpful and the hotel is always clean. Only area for improvement is the scarcity of electric sockets. Seriously, in this day and age 1 electric outlet in a room for 2 is simply not enough. Even the common area only had 1 or 2 sockets for the use of guests. Will definitely stay here again should I go back to Kota Kinabalu.
