    My very first experience of staying in a hostel and I'm only impressed. Pleasant stay, clean, safe, and homely as well. I would recommend this place to anyone planning to stay in KK. It's worth every single cent you pay. Also easy to get Grab and conveniently located.

    Although the location was in the center of the city, it was also accessible through Grab and I was able to enjoy my stay for 3 nights. The staffs are so friendly. The breakfast was good. The facilities are modern and fits the hostel vibe. Overall, I really enjoyed my stay and will definitely come back.

    The staffs (Ron and Melissa) and others were really helpful throughout my stays. The cleaniness is well maintained. Location is strategic too. It is a SAFE place. SKYPOD is a place to get know more people. If you are an individual able to live in sharing basis then should be no issue to stay here.

    Good value”
    We stayed in a double pod in the 20-bed dorm. Bed and pillow were comfy, plug socket by the bed, privacy curtain, towel provided, clean toilets and showers and hot water, breakfast included - toast and eggs, nice chill out communal area with a TV and netflix. Overall we had a good stay and went back a second time when returning to KK. My only complaint would be that when a couple arrived late to the hostel one night (passed midnight) the staff that brought them into the dorm turned the lights and spoke quite loudly to them showing no consideration to everyone that was asleep and they continued to talk loudly amongst themselves then when the lady had left them to it so it kept us awake. Maybe if she had spoke quietly to them they would have spoke quietly to each other

    A perfect place for those who don't seek lavished stay....second time staying here... staff are friendly...one issue is the male staff should not enter the all female dormitory... Better have the female staff does it... Unless of course the hostel management announce the entry prior... Tenants would have understand the entry for things like electrical problem inspection, etc. Still, the male staff should be accompanied by a female staff.

    I felt like being at home.”
    Since I got the reservation. I could talk to one of their staff. They gave me specific details about their hostel. Their breakfast was very delicious, of course self service. Amazingly clean. We got there there at 3:00 in the morning and their staff were happy and joyful to see us and gave us towels and showed us our pods. They recommnded us to different tours. We took the jungle Kinabalu river tour and after that we just took a boat to one of the islands. They helped us with both. They even called a Grab Driver for us to go places. What else can I say: IT WAS A GREAT HOSTEL TO STAY!!!!

You can leave your things after check-out 6. Early check-in once bed is available 7. Helps you book for your trips / tours (relatively cheaper than market price); also for restaurant reservations 8. Ironing and Laundry services available. 9. Affordable restaurants near the hostel 10. Opportunity to meet friends from other countries 11. Price - you get more than what you have paid

    Cool facilities, bad location”
    I've been to a fewhostels/hotels around KK and if it wasn't for the location, this would easily be the best one. The facilities are great, the pod beds comfortable, the showers clean and spacious and the hangout area is cool. Breakfast is really good, changed every day (fried rice one day, pancakes the other plus toast and an egg station), coffee all day. The location isn't good though if you wanna explore KK, you either need to rent a bike, which they offer, or take grabs all the time. I tried two of the food places around (one Indian and one Malay), both were really good and cheap but with limited vegetarian options. I would totally recommend this place if you just wanna hang out or need to get some work on the computer done.

    A little out of the city center but tucked away in a quite area. Everything was better than expected! We had comfortable beds, provided towels and lock with a refundable deposit, and had a very filling breakfast with options of food and good coffee. The staff was more than helpful and kept everything very tidy. We even did our laundry here for a small charge. We came at the beginning of our trip and booked again at the end. Highly recommend! Keep up the good work!

    It could have been better if not for the few noisy guests who talk aloud. Some guests also off the air-con. Management should have full control of the situation like that by telling guests not to interfere with air-conditioning.

Also, generous serving of delicious breakfast and overflowing coffee and tea for free!!! Facilities are well-maintained and cleaned. Feels like home. <3

    I'll be BACK !”
    The staffs were really really friendly and helpful. The bed was clean, cozy, comfortable and spacious enough to avoid one from feeling claustrophobic. Got the bottom tier of the bunk, for that I'm thankful ! Great location! Good coffee for free 24/7. Unlimited water purifier! Hairdryer, towel, soap & iron foc. Huge Walls for you to doodle away, read messages from previous tenants & leave your mark-FUN! Simple breakfast. The shower area was the only factor I wasn't too pleased with-low water pressure and maintenance of cleanliness of bathrroms. The bathrooms were clean on the first day but slowly began to stink and flooring of the bathrooms began to feel algae-like. Not very pleasant. Nevertheless, I will be back to Skypod if I ever were to visit KK again! It is really value for money! Would definitely recommend Skypod to family & friends! I just hope Skypod will improve their bathroom cleanliness.

    Lovely place, Helpful staff, and Good value for money ”
    1. I love the place, I love the design, I love the security, and definitely love how much space you have in your bed. 2. Location is a bit of a worry since it is farther away from the "good establishments" and there are no nearby stores to buy anything. 3. Staff is excellent but inconsistent. I got to meet 3 persons in the reception, 2 of them are really good-natured and friendly, the other one is questionable as he would want to do things in a rush. 4. Definitely worth every penny I spent here. The facilities are up-to-date and with really good hospitality. Though I gotta admit I don't understand their shower (I had to ask them how to operate it, all along thinking that there was no water. Silly me!) 5. Good place for relaxation and to have a "chill" stay. Sending love from the Philippines ^_^

    As a frequent guest, I notice some issue in the bathroom area (broken shower, low water pressure, moldy walls, bathroom curtains, etc). I also noticed that the air purifier in the lobby needs to be serviced. Other than that, all is good.
