The ladies there was so very friendly, we immediately felt welcome. They were helpful in answering all of our questions and recommending places to go. The bathrooms were clean and nice. Our room had ants, but it's an older building so that is hard to avoid. However, they do have signs about being careful where you put your food and trash, so I know they are trying to keep the insects at bay. The location is excellent, not far from the airport and within close walking distance to the amazing fresh markets, shops and waterfront.
The location is in the centre of town and only 3 blocks back from the Harbour Esplanade.

After a busy couple of weeks climbing Mount Kinabula and visiting the rain forest this is the perfect place to come and relax, chill out and do absolutely nothing. The 1.5 hour transfer is worth it - you completely get away from the hustle from KK and the sea breeze is nice and refreshing. The beach is absolutely beautiful and lovely and quiet and all the rooms have a great sea view. The staff are incredibly friendly and the food was delicious!
peaceful, quite place to escape from the world, hidden paradise, friendly stuff, awesome meals, especially the vegetarian ones

Staff was very very nice and helpful. The girl at the reception called a lot of tour operators when a made a last minute decision to want to climb mount kinabalu so I got the best deal. Breakfast and fast wifi included.
I would like to share simple lines to people who are planning for their vacation to Malaysia to hang up your travel stay in North Borneo Cavin. Staffs were so approachable and fun to talk with. It seemed like your just roaming around in a space not like no other than a home. Thanks for the great service and hello to my Pinay and Malayans friends working in the aforementioned Hostel...Hi to Nanay an old nice Malayan woman for taking pictures.....Go their folks!

Nice jungle location. The views were great. The hammocks were comfortable. The longhouse dorm was really beautiful and the bunks were spaced well apart.
It was great as a cheaper alternative of accommodation for when you want to hike in Kota Kinabalu park. It was clean an the furniture was whole. Breakfast was included which was great and they even had a small store where you could buy a few things if you had forgotten anything e.g. jackets.

Location was perfect, staff were really helpful, and the common room is the best thing about it, really spacious and airy. nice! came back a couple times on the trip

They have big bathroom and washroom, Provide nice coffee and unlimited hot and cold drinking water.
Proximity to everything, light breakfast included, this helps if have early morning tour etc. We went to Tawau stayed in 4* and received bad service, rip off food prices and depressing atmosphere! I wish I could take Step in Lodge every where l go. It has an open air feel with comfortable couches to rest on and chat with other travellers. The staff couldn't be more helpful. It's the only place l would stay in KK! We actually came back and stayed 4 nights more.

Good economy choice in the heart of the tourist section. Nice rooms in terms of decor though they could use a place to put your clothes and such. Outdoor seating area. Lots of food choices, bars, banks etc nearby. They do a good job setting you up on tours.
Staff were very nice. Stayed in this hostel at the start of our holiday and at the end. Very cheap and good value for money. Location great. Specially on Sunday with the famous market.

Good location in town. If you're in Borneo to party, and not experience the wonders, then this is a great place.
You couldn't want a better spot. In the middle of everything that you could ever need for a fun & interesting time in Kota Kinabalu. I have stayed in a few places in KK & you can't beat it for the location. The staff are friendly & very helpful. Due to the awesome location it can be a little noisy around the Rainforest Lodge so bear that in mind, me I thought it was the ultimate :)

Comfortable beds. The rooms are tiny but clean and the air con was finr. Good Internet connection too. Didn't try the breakfast.
Wifi (okay for skyping). Staff were always accomodating and helpful. Aircon worked well in room. Airport transfer RM30. Location is pretty good, KK is small enough to walk around (except in the rain!!). Only had two days here to finish off my trip to Sabah, there are worse places to stay. I'd stay again.
