    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.

    ... Kundasang War Memorial which is another tribute to the Sandakan Death Marches. Whilst visiting this site we saw a video that showed a single monument that was in Ranau and was the very spot where a young Australian soldier was tied up and tortured for 11 days straight before he died. We had to go to find this monument in Ranau. It was about 30kms away, and eventually, we found a small bus to take us there. Ranau was a fairly basic town and we could not find anyone to show ...

    ... to him. Job done and another friend made! No motorbike hire places to be had but there were tour agents on one street and that's when I realised that to see anything in Sabah, I would need a mortgage. The Tip of Borneo was a no go area because the Foreign Commonwealth Office was saying "essential travel only", too dangerous to go, which was a shame but I always take the advice seriously. I could have paid 100 to go snorkelling (what?!) but instead I thought ...

So after a less than filling dinner I went back to the hotel for a catch up with mum and dad on FaceTime which was nice as always before skyping Sophie which made for a lovely end to a pretty awesome week. After the travelling today I was shattered so went straight to bed, looking forward to a nice lie in and waking up to our 7th week in ...

    ... we headed back down to the lodge. We were absolutely starving after 8 hours of climbing already today, despite the fact it was only 10am! But we were rewarding with a lovely breakfast of toast, eggs, sausages, beans and mashed potato. Feeling much better with a full stomach we packed our bags and set of with Petros for the climb back down. For some reason Sharif seemed to be in a mad rush down and was determined to reach the bottom in 2 hours, apparently ...
