    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.

    Journey to the Equator

    ... Yey. I hired a taxi through the hotel to take me to the Equator monument 3km across town. Cheaper than trying myself! I was so excited and when we arrived I grinned like Ive never grinned before, talk about a Cheshire cat! There I was standing at long last on the equator line, a life long dream accomplished! What a great feeling and what a journey I've had along the way to get there. My driver took loads of photos for me (most of which were lobsided or had ...

    ... raining more than an hour and the roads were flooding! And of course we were stood there in our shorts and t shirts, after weighing up whether to stay in the shopping centre or just going for it we took the now regrettable decision of going for it. It was about a 15 minute walk back to our hotel, well after a minute we were absolutely soaked through, by the time we got to the hotel it felt like I was drowning. Next time it rains...stay indoors! So after hanging our clothes up to ...

    We then climbed up across the rocky shore to an isolated area. That's the best thing about nature, you can always find some way to avoid the crowd. Overall this was a nice quiet way that especially if one likes water sports. Even with just soaking my feet in the crystal clear water was cool and comfortable.

    Too bad we had a mad rush back to hotel to check out. The ...
