Book it for a friend”
New facility. Everything about this place was good. And it is near to Imago Shopping Centre. Location is still in the city but it is an acceptble walking distance to the Sunday Gaya Market area or the Filipino Market if you are up for town sighseeing.
When i read so many positive reviews before booking i wondered if they had been faked. I can positively say this is the best hostel I have ever stayed in. So comfy, clean, great value, but what really makes it is the people who work here. Its like you are with your family. I love it. 11 out of 10! X
Really just so good!”
I really love the environment in vibrant, really felt as if I am staying home... very comfy very clean and friendly staff. Was surprise to see a high rated hostel so I must try it myself. We are really pleased. Thank you vibrant! Keep doing what you do there!
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. VERY SATISFIED!”
First impression, the staff is very friendly and give a warm welcome. 2nd impression, it is so CLEAN. Simple room but it is clean. I LOVE IT. 3rd impression, the bathroom is CLEAN and they provide the hairdryer, bath soap and shampoo and I love the mirror. It have small and clean kitchen, have small place to watch TV. Overall I AM VERY SATISFIED with this hotel. 10 stars! ohh... it is near with IMAGO MALL also. cool right? will come again. love love love!
Amazing Hostel and Staff”
Everyone was so sweet here and the rooms are VERY cozy. Best bed I've slept on at a budget hostel, and the comforters are so fluffy and soft in the private rooms. The rooms are small, but it feels like home because of the amazing design. Highly recommend if you're a budget traveler.
Loved our stay here. Bed was comfortable and facilities were clean. Great location. The staff were so friendly and helpful. They were very accommodating and let us hang around in the evening whilst we were waiting for our flight. Would definitely recommend.
Best Hostel after six months of traveling Southeast Asia”
Everything is just excellent about this place. The staff, the beds, the tv (loads of movies and series), really fresh and the list just goes on. We had Kota Kinabalu our base while exploring Borneo and stayed there 13 nights in total. Hugo & co.
Great stay at Vibrant”
I stayed in a four beds dorm at Vibrant. The facilities of this hostel are great: the bed is very comfy, towels are provided and the room can be made up everyday if you wish. I also happened to have the room all for myself for all the 4 nights of my stay there. The staff is extra kind and available for any kind of enquiries. One of them showed my the area around and even brought me to a local restaurant on my first night there when I was still a bit lost. There are separate washrooms for males and females, each having three showers, that are more than enough for the guests of each floor (some rooms are private rooms and not dorms). There are not great restaurants around but you have plenty of them 15 min walking/5 min by car away. Recommended!
Good location, nice staff”
Price is reasonable and facilities are clean Room condition is also not bad But I saw a nail into the wall in our room just beside our bed and one of us was almost hurt cuzof it. That nails can’t be found easily to the guests because it is nailed to the lower wall close to small table. Except that, I’ve satisfied with the price
Dear Sungjin, thank you for your stay with us. We will immediately check and remove the nail (if any) at once. Thank you and wish you a nice day ahead.
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!
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.
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
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.
5 star hostel, recommended!”
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.
perfect place to stay”
superb recommended!!! cheap, beside to imago. can walk around 5min only. haha. soo close. super clean. breakfast includes. must stay here. this place will always be my place to stay when im travel to KK for another time. thanks a lot. 🙏💕🙏💕🙏💕
Nice to stay
Fantastic hostel for a couple, would be lonely for solo travellers”
As a couple, I honestly cannot fault this place. It was FANTASTIC! More like our own floor of an apartment building than a hostel. It was immaculately clean, in a great accessible and safe and convening location and Mary at the fron desk was friendly and helpful. Breakfast was good, the bed was superbly comfortable, ac was good, shower good, right near lots of shops and restaurants, very clean, fast wifi, cutely decorated.. I would for sure stay here again if I was travelling with friends or a partner. I wouldn’t want to stay here if I was travelling solo and wanted to meet other people, although that said, there were thrree flors so maybe the other floors were more lively (we were super stoked that wasn’t the case on ours!)
Best Hostel !!! Just Superb !!! ”
Super clean hostel. Helpful and friendly staff. Good location, 24 hours convenient store at ground floor with many more local restaurants. There is coins laundry shop nearby too. Walk to Imago Shopping Mall (1-2 minutes walking distance), you will find everything there. Best choice !!! Must try !!!
must stay hotel if come to KK”
spacious room..very very comfortable..very clean toilet with pleasant smell..breakfast provided early morning..staff and bos remember your name..surrounded by mamak stall,7E,saloon,dobi laundry and imago shopping mall..the staf help me,allow me to use their computer for a while to web check in flight as well as print boarding pass..plus, even we juz stay one night before go to kundasang,they allow us to keep our bags,luggages and belongings in their counter room until we come back from kundasang next couple of days..truly appreciate their hospitality..wishing them all the best & future success
Friendly boss and staffs. Convenient to go everywhere with Grab. Nice pisang cheese at anak mani mamak stall downstairs. And nice murtabak at Ariba Maju. Iron available upon request, watch movie at the living room. Peace and quiet, even had a lie in day coz i don't feel like going anywhere. Self operated laundry Aladdin is available next to 7eleven. But not well maintained.
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 😊
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.
Me and my friends plan to stay here since it is very close to Imago mall. This hostel still new and very tidy. I recommend to all of you who looking for a place to stay with small budget, this is the place.
Everthing is great!”
Wonderful and friendly staff and great location. hostel is clean and tidy.
Best hotel in the city for sure”
It’s really clean and organized, and the owners and worker are super nice and really helpful. It’s just behind the IMGO mall and ~10mins’ walk from the club street (waterfront). The best hotel I have ever stayed!!!
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.

"Amazing Hostel, very clean and good location!"”
I have stayed in many hostels, this is the best thus far. Very clean, especially the bathroom. Kitchen and tv areas are being cleaned few times a day. Friendly staff and cleaner. Bed is clean and comfortable too. Oh yes, 2 minutes walking to IMAGO SHOPPING MALL, very near. Good town location and value for money. Will come back for sure, highly recommended. Must try !!!!
Wonderful place to stay”
Pros-room clean and neat, facilities were good such as WiFi, TV, kitchen area with food available for breakfast. Common bathrooms were clean too. Cons-only the passing by of flights above were a nuisance for my sleep at night. Other than that. All fine
Clean & value for money”
I’m a solo traveller and I booked this place for two nights. The place is very clean and nothing to complain. Friendly staffs. Perfect location and nearby to shopping Mall and airport. Highly recommended.
Very good. Stay like at home. I will booking this hostel again at my next trip.

Very nice place to stay”
Cheap, clean, super nice and staff is awesome! Perfect place to stay in KK! Strongly recommended ❤️
Facility perfect doomed by poor service”
I was extremely satisfied with everything but the service was dissapointing. Inexperienced male attendant gave rude lip service. I am afraid i may not revisit this place anymore.
We are truly sorry for the service that you experienced from our male attendant. He is new and only joined us few weeks ago. We will investigate the incident and remind him to be more courteous to guest and do the necessary improvement. Thank you for your feedback.
Nice hostel but......”
This hostel is set out in a four story building in Times Square. Each floor can accommodate between 16-18 guests. On each floor there is a kitchen with a fridge, microwave and toaster. The kitchens on each floor are right next to the single and only entrance/exit in and out of the building. Not only is there only the single exit/entrance but it is right next to the kitchens. Most alarming is the lack of fire extinguishers by the entry/exit doors. Should a fire, electrical or otherwise, break out in the vicinity of the kitchens, guests have no chance of escaping. I did raise this with fellow guests. They said they hadn't thought about it, but it was a completely valid concern.
Dear Guest, We wish to clarify that :- 1. We are operating 5 storeys hostel, each floor has their own amenities and facilities. 1st floor, 2nd and 4th floors are low density (private rooms only) can accommodate 6-12 pax only; 2. There are 2 entrances and exits to each floor. We only allowed guests as required under our State Fire Department to use the main entry/exit as described by you. There is another fire and emergency exit at the back (near the male toilet) in each floor, it is meant for fire and emergency use only. You may have missed it totally and we will place a pointer direction leading to the emergency exit for the benefit of our future guests. Having a fire and emergency exit is compulsory under our State Fire Department laws; and 3. Fire extinguishers are available at recpetion or upon request. In the past, we have stored in each floor, but were stolen many times, thus we now storing the same under the care and supervision of our receiptionist to avoid being
They have among the best pantry and spacious living room with fast wifi services.
Best Hostel ”
Very clean hostel with friendly staff. Good location, next to Imago Shopping Mall and plenty of 24 hours convenient store and restaurants nearby hostel. Highly recommended !!!
Very new and very clean at a very reasonable price. Location is great as it is near to Imago Shopping Mall.
Quiet and pleasant ”
It’s a great hostel. The private room was lovely and I actually ended up staying 4 nights. If you like peace and quiet then this place is great!
Would definitely stay here again.
Value for Money”
Awesome customer service Clean facilities Good location
It the best for me!”
I would recommended for all my solo traveler. Thank you so much.
Clean, good location. Walking distance to imago shopping mall”
I am happy to have a double private room .
Toilet is dirty”
Toilet is dirty
Dear Valued Guest, We have 3 full-time cleaners working in our hostel and cleanliness is our top priority. Our toilets and shower rooms are cleaned multiple times a day. However, as the toilets are on sharing basis, there is possibility that the user before you was of poor toilet etiquette who has failed to clean up after himself, thus dirtying the toilet.
Expectation was too high”
The review of the hostel was quite good so i booked a room, then the room is very very small, no place to open luggage, their facilities looks cheap too, toilet got problem, needs repair. They use spotlight in room so it was uncomfortable while reading. With the money i pay for we can definitely get a better room in the city area. Pros- near to a shopping mall and their staff is helpful.
Dear Valued Guest, Thank you for your feedback. Our facilities are reasonable facilities that one can expect from a Hostel standard point of view. If there is any malfunction, we will attend to it immediately to avoid any inconvenience to our guests. We do apologize if there is any inconvenience caused to you during the malfunction and we appreciate your comment for our own improvement. Thank you.
Pada keseluruhannya adalah baik..tetapiperlu di pertingkatkan ... jika perlu sediakan cermin didalam bilik, ini kerana menyusahkan setiap kali mahu sikat rambut atau menyusah perempuan tiap kali mahu berdandan tetapi yang paling penting hendaklah membuat penanda arah KIBLAT untuk sembahyang.
