.,great location, nice staff, value for money 👍”
., the hostel is strategically located near the business center, walking distance to their famous Gaya Street, the room was spacious and clean, staff were nice. We also had a chance to met the owner and he's nice and accomodating. The hostel is perfect for travelers and tourists...

Functional Accommodations, Hospitable Staff”
Interesting place - all female staff was dressed to the nines - make up, high heels, and all. But it wasn't THAT kind of place by any means. Just a nice, simple accommodation and the ladies were incredibly welcoming. Nothing fancy but great for a quick stay in Kota Kinabalu. Beds are comfortable enough, location is within walking distance of the city center, and value is unbeatable.

Good hotel and generous staff ”
I'm so happy to stay here even just for a night. They picked me up for free from the airport even I arrived at 2am! You'll be treated like a friend here. The location is close strategically located in the heart of the city and very close to the shuttle stations.
