"Many of our backpacker friends ended up in the wrong backpacker lodges on arrival as some lodges have almost similar name. For your info, our Borneo Backpackers lodge is located at 'Australia's Place' in the heart of Kota Kinabalu, next to a cafe called 'Kopitiam'. There are plenty of backpackers lodges nearby but our 3-storey building is the most notable in the vicinity with its distinctive green and brown theme colour". Read more
