      It has cheap rooms and also good deals with 20% off if you stay 2 or more nights. The location is out of the hustle and bustle of the city centre and a 5 minute walk from the AirAsia terminal but you need a taxi to get to/from the other terminal. About 100m walk from a quiet beach and some great places to eat. The staff are very friendly and organise plenty of activities so you won't be bored. Also there is a communal kitchen and relaxing area for everyone to use. Overall a really good stay and I would recommend it highly if you don't mind being a little away from town.

      It is very convenient for the airport if you are flying with air asia from terminal 2 - literally 10 min walk and easy to do even with a big rucksack. The beach is dirty and there is an open drain going to it and the food court on the beach is average. Other than that the accomodation is over priced for what you get - we are coming back this way but will stay elsewhere.

      Great staff, very close to the airport

      This is a fifteen minute walk from the airport, with a big backpack. Not located in central Kota Kinabalu, but it's easy enough to walk to the local bus stop and head in from there. The rooms are only ok, but for the price they are fine. I went out to Sandakan for a night and then came back and the staff were very accommodating. They held my bags and let me get right back into my own room the next day.

      ... there were flowers. These flowers are amazing: They do not have photosynthesis and they have a stem instead of roots: for this, they are closer to a mushroom than to a flower. But they are pollinized by a green bottle fly. You never know when they bloom, maybe once every 3 to 5 years and, when it does, it is a big event. The Rafflesias are protected and so people make you pay to see them. The biggest ones can be ...

      I didn't wake up till half ten today but as we had nothing planned i might as well make the most of a nice lie in. Eventually we left the room at half 11 and I headed to centre point to get my hair cut. I don't really like new people cutting my hair in case they mess it up, especially if they can't speak English! However my hair was getting pretty messy and I didn't want to leave white tan lines if I got my hair cut back at home so I went to the same place ...

      I was up with the lark (or should I say swifts) this morning watching the sunrise from 0540; himself was still snoring but did see the sun come over Mount Kinabalu at 0625.
      We had an early(ish) breakfast this morning as we wanted to book our boat trip to one of the islands; we chose Mamutik and were on the 0900 boat. Although the island is a lot more commercial ...
