    Great place to stay

    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.

    give it a miss unless you need to be near the airport

    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.

    ... in the cool! He was really nice but I was dressed for the beach (rucksack, shorts, Tshirt and flip flops) but everyone in and around the lobby were wearing very dark smart business suits, mostly Chinese businessmen, so I felt really out of place! The concierge took it upon himself to ring the bus company to make sure they didn't forget to collect me! To be perfectly honest I would have been happier sitting on the roadside (in the gutter where I belong!) but it ...

    ... that it was really cloudy, so as we were pretty much in the clouds the views were just of white rather than any of the spectacular views we were hoping to see. Four hours later though and we had made it to Pendant hunt! The last kilometre was the steepest and toughest bit so we arrived needing a well earned rest. We sat down and enjoyed a few cups of tea and coffee as we chatted to some of the other climbers staying in the ...

    Time is flying by and we have just started our third week in A&E! As usual nothing much was going on in the department today, with the most exciting case been a women with a nose bleed. We ended up leaving by half 10 as our motivation to stay is slowly decreasing. However leaving early meant we could make the most of the good weather and we headed down to the beach for some sunbathing. It was ...

    ... nearest town, 5km down the mountain. The town did little to change my mind on urban Borneo with the highlight being a mud covered KFC. We stocked up on hot chocolate and slogged our way back up the mountain to our hotel, arriving just in time to avoid another deluge of rain. February 17th - Cloudy. What a surprise! We were determined not to waste another day though and found a natural hot springs in our guide a mere 40km away. We managed to flag down a bus which ...
