      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.

      ... together all of the way with a stop for lunch at the usual grotty (I wouldn't eat food here if you paid me) cafe. The scenery was beautiful passing Mt Kinabalu, typical Borneo jungle and Palm Oil Plantations that went on for miles. Its a huge industry in Borneo providing the main source of income. I arrived in Sandakan late afternoon (it took 9 hours not 8) and paid an exorbitant price for the taxi to my hotel in the centre of town. When I arrived the hotel ...

      ... first day you leave at 8 and get to the half way point and spend the night there in a very basic camp, the climbers then set off at 2.30am to reach the summit at 6am to see the sun rise I should imagine it looks amazing, they then make their way down at 6 descending all the way to the bottom in one go, we did meet someone who had done it a couple of weeks ago and they said it takes days ...

      ... a decent seat and enjoyed the football, the quality was terrible, probably worse than conference football but the atmosphere was brilliant. Even from the start every fan stood up to sing the national anthem and there was constant drums and chants throughout the match. In the end Sabah lost 3-1 but it was definitely an experience I won't forget. We got a taxi back and arrived back to the hotel around half 11, absolutely shattered, so really not looking forward to the 6am wake up ...
