    Really loved our stay in this hostel. Highly recommended 💯”

    The hostel's location is super near 7eleven & Orange and IMAGO mall is just 2mins walk where you can buy anything you need, dine and even money changers are available. Another thing I like the most were the staff, they were so kind, polite and helpful. Really helped us a lot! Facilities are new and clean plus they have blowers 😊

    Very near to imago(less than 5 mins walk) Safe for solo traveller. Has usb charger to the plug, so no need to bring adapter. Separate bathrooms n toilet for female n for male. Breakfast is so nice n the so called kitchen is so neat, nice n clean. No mirror in the rooms. So need to go to the bathroom for the mirror.

    Very comfortable and clean”

    We stayed here our first night upon arriving at around 2pm and we were so surprised by the hospitality of the staff and cleanliness of this hostel. We stayed in a private double bed room and slept very comfortably. The staff were able to greet us with smiles, check us in and show us around even though it was very late. The shared bathrooms and showers were awesome and it reminded me of some higher end capsule hotels in Japan. The staff obviously diligently clean the bathrooms multiple times a day. It was great that each floor has a small kitchen with toast and spreads available. The kitchen was very clean and new and the toast and coffee was a perfect way to start the day. We probably would have stayed here throughout our entire trip if we hadn't wanted to stay closer to the downtown area. That's not to say the location wasn't good. It was very close to imago mall, and a quick 'grab' away from the airport or tanjung aru. Thank you, Vibrant!

    Hospitality & Cleanliness”

    The staffs are super friendly and very careful in attending the guests needs. They even personally give a tour of the hostel and facilities available. I stayed in a private room . The shower and toilet is outside my room and it is fine as it was very clean and functional. The bed is comfortable and spotless. No bad smell. Location is just next to Imago Shopping Mall walking distance 2-3mins. Very recommended to all.

    Near to Imago shopping mall”

    I love staying at this hostel. First, I like to compliment the staff is very welcoming and friendly. second, I love the blanket and bed which I find very comfy. The toilet and shower room very clean. I like the concept of mini bar and reading area, I feel like at home. The hostel located next to Imago Shopping mall which is very convenient. However, I must say the price is quite pricey compare to other hostels. Overall you won't regret stay here. I recommend this place to everyone.

    Above expectation”

    Chose this location as it was one of the hotels being promoted by the pop up screen. Decided to give it a try. Best decision. Straight after a kinabalu hike, beds were comfortable, facilities were clean and an amazing pantry and living room space. The private room definitely allowed me to have an undisturbed rest. Location wise, it is opposite Imago mall, but abit of a walking distance away from the ‘main’ city attraction like the night markets.

    Stayed for 2 nights in double private room. Not young backpackers but required somewhere at a reasonable price and in good visinity. New property, could not fault anything. Staff couldn’t have been more helpful. Would definitely recommend and if ever in that part of the world again would choose again

    Great Hostel”

    This Hostel is in a great location in the city. The hostel is very clean and comfortable with tea and a couple breakfast options available each morning in the lounges on each floor which are nice places to relax. The beds and rooms are very nice with air-conditioning and WiFi that both work very well. The staff is very helpful. The outside may just look like a concrete building but inside is a perfect hostel that I would definitely recommend with in Kota Kinabalu.

    Comfy & cosy”

    Room, toilet, bathroom and common area are very clean. Comfortable bed and fluffy pillow. But no curtain in each bed, less privacy. Room is a bit dark, but maybe an advantage as it might not disturb other guests who sleep in the same room. Big locker is provided in the room to keep big luggage. Simple breakfast like oat, milo, coffee, toast, biscuits and peanut butter are provided every morning. Staff are so friendly and polite, they greet whenever they meet the guests. Near to imago, within 5 mins walk, very convinient and suitable for those who loves to shop. Overall, great stay!

    New hostel with new facilities in a very strategic location, just minutes' walk from shopping mall and close to the airport. Homey surroundings and even has a TV in the shared lounge! I also really like the individual shower stalls. Friendly and warm service who went out of their way to help me during the check in process. I felt very much at home.

    The place is very clean and tidy”

    Pros : 100% cleanliness, wifi speed good, the property is new, free breakfast (simple bread and peanut spread) although they dont mention it upfront, the staff are very friendly to customers. Cons : TV area is small, the shower has low water pressure, plane take.off and landing sound heard quite frequently. Overall, its worth the money you pay for a simple hostel, since cleanliness/hygiene and tidiness is UTMOST importance for me, I would give an 8/10 rating for this one.

    Pros 1. I consider it 5 star based on the price & facilities. 2. Many ports for charging, three outlet socket with six usb port. 3. Free drink packet in the kitchen & some breads always ready incase you hungry, downstairs also got many restaurant. 4. 5 min walk to imago shopping complex. 5. Fast internet speed, around 15-20mbps. Cons. 1. The main light in my room with 3 bulb, controlled by 1 main switch, if i turn off it will be so dark, maybe can put some small light. Overall, will come back & very recommended.
