How has this hostel rated in the past?
Located a short walk outside the main area of Kota Kinabalu, this guest house offers everything you should expect.

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.
