        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.

We stopped at an observation area and anchored at the junction of two small tributary creeks before taking the dinghy ashore. Although there were no monkeys there, we did see several troupes along they – one of about 15 animals with a big male and several babies in the midst. We also saw silver faced monkeys and macaques as well so overall ...

Our guide for the day was very informative though which was good, so much so that other people joined our group so they could overhear what was being said. From here we were back in the minibus to Ranau, beyond which Poring Hot Springs is located. As you passed Mt Kinabalu it was here the land changed from forest and jungle to flatter farming areas. Before entering the hot springs we ...

I dodged the large monitor lizards (its a debate as to who scared who more) and explored isolated beaches . Its hard to feel safe tho as I'm aware of the Philippines/Malaysia issues and nervous, believing that as the level of illegal immigrants increase, (as is the case in Sabah) so does poverty which ...
