The province is named Sabah. This is because it holds everything …

    Located a short walk outside the main area of Kota Kinabalu, this guest house offers everything you should expect. Decent dorm rooms (6 beds), travellers breakfast (toast, tea, coffee and jams), free wifi and computers. To get the best price, pre-book this accommodation via hostelbooker or hostelworld (you can even do this the same day). They also offer some great dive courses.
