      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.

      ... emotional all of a sudden and said to Jim, 'Oh my god, did that really all happen?' It was a brilliant moment, a peak experience and an unforgettable Kinabalu adventure!!

      Thank you so much for reading and sharing in our adventure. Writing the blog allows us to relive the experience again which is a great fringe benefit! We are now in South Africa and are heading next to Namibia. We miss you very much and look forward to your updates.

      ... the houses wanted to give me coffee and so I was made very welcome! I was also having great success with the hello mister and miss issue and each one remember the next time I saw them! But, how many people are there in Indonesia to teach?! I borrowed a pushbike the next day from the homestay so I could go exploring the area. I wanted breakfast (the homestay only did rice and curried fish which I couldn't face) so went to buy some bananas from a shop. Why, oh why, ...

      Today has been a fantastic day! We may or may not have had our hospital forms signed off... We went into hospital for 8 this morning and it was absolutely dead with only a couple of patients, in the end the consultant arranged for the junior doctors to have to life support training as there was nothing else to do. We had to get involved and help with some of the scenarios but we were fine, too be honest we seem to ...

      ... Very strange sunset this evening!

      Fiona, the General Manager, has been in again this evening (asked if we had been out at all today as we were sitting at the same table as we were at breakfast).

      Still raining at 1830; contemplating whether to eat here or go out to the night market.

      We did eat out last night; Nasi Goreng for Mr John and Mee Goreng for me (never the same).

      Decision made; going to try the seafood at the night market.
