I was pretty happy with my 2 night stay here. The room was fairly clean. The free water and hot water, tea and coffee was great. Although just tea leaves instead of tea bags I found weird and funny tasting coffee. I found the staff all amazingly friendly and smiling which I like. Location I quite liked that side of Kota Kinabalu. I couldn't find it without asking the restaurant below where to go but not that hard. Wifi was good. Good budget option!

The place is really Ok, its clean, they can arange a lot of trips for you directly on reception, just ask for the cataloge, or renting a car - its really cheap and its very pleasant to not run around car rental agencies (120 MYR/day). But the surroundings is really terrible, its in a complex of a mall, next to the garage. Corridors are filled with a lot of smells (around, not inside). Thats really unconfortable. However the stuff is very nice and helpful. Its near the city center, on foot few minutes.

Great location when we eventually found it... signage is small and not visible from the seafood restaurant side of the building. A local worker showed us to the hotel after us searching for a while both in our grab and on foot. Room was clean and cosy but unfortunately we had no mirror and our shower was broken. Great aircon in the room, actually woke up cold during the night! Overall we would have been very happy here if we had a working shower/ mirror :)
