I stayed overnight here on a quick stop over in kota kinabalu. Being 10 minutes walk from the airport used by air asia, it was perfect for my early artivals and departures. Taxis are expensive when travelling solo and cost double the fee to stay in this place. 10 minutes walk to the beach and main eateries, or 10 minutes...

A convenient hostel for the nearby beach and airport, run by friendly staff. The rooms are adequate but cleanliness of the communal areas left a bit to be desired...a line of ants in the bathroom and the kitchen wasn't so inviting! Beds and rooms are basic but comfortable, the building is set back from the road so not noisy, and...

“The Air-con Twin room in the 2nd building is nice and huge! It is also conveniently located just opposite the bathroom. Though i believe this room would not always be available due to it being very popular.”
