      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.

      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.

      ... Village, 45 minutes from Kuching but I did it for 15.00 (and 12 of that was for the entry ticket to the village!). I took the local shuttle bus that dropped me at the entrance and picked me up at the same place. The village was an exact replica of traditional dwellings even down to the type of wood, carvings and landscaping, basically a living museum. The people were wearing the 7 major ethnic races' costumes and actually I really enjoyed the lovely ...

      ... summit! It was still pitch black but we got our picture, which should hopefully be attached, and admired the views. It was pretty emotional to know we had just climbed the highest peak in South East Asia and to be able to experience such an incredible achievement. We had an hour to wait until the sunrise so got first pick for the best rocks/seats to watch the sun. I almost wish we had took longer to reach the summit now as it was absolutely freezing, ...

      ... a wander around town and I finally bought something for myself. A sabah rhinos football shirt, ready to wear for the football match tomorrow evening. We headed back to the hotel around 5 to get ready for dinner and headed off to partyplay with everyone. I only wanted to go here cos they had a huge projector to watch the liverpool match on but the food was surprisingly good. I had a teriyaki chicken and pineapple ...
