    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.

    ... filling lunch, which we did in fact pay for, it was time for the nature reserve. This had been the primary aim of our sortie from KK and did not disappoint. For an hour we watched two young, rehabilitated orang-utans battle over food with a troop of long-tailed macaques around the feeding station. It was great to watch and once both primates had taken their fill even some local squirrels got involved on the feeding frenzy. With the main ...

    In the morning, Aunty Kel took us to the pearl shop and Gemma and I bought a pearl ring each. They cost RM9 and they are very nice. We then went to the Lok Kawi Wildlife Park out of Kota Kinabalu, there was so many amazing animals. First of we saw the birds there were so many different types of birds like Macaws and cockatoos. They were so cute. Next we saw the Cloud Leopard, it look very stressed but we thought it was ...

    ... Oat were brother and sister from different families. We were all good friends by the time we reached the ferry an hour's journey from Kuching. At the ferry jetty we had to register with the national park and we decided to hire a guide for the day between the 5 of us for 4 each so Joe joined our happy little band for the boat trip to Bako National Park. Joe gave me a leech to hold, lovely! We journeyed down the Bako River towards the South China Sea. When ...

I'm so glad Harold organises these meals otherwise we'd have missed out on all these lovely meals and unique experiences of Borneo. After eating a ridiculous amount of food between us Harold gave us a lift back to the hotel and was already ...
