Clean and quiet rooms with A/C in the dorm overnight; good showers with towels provided. Staff friendly and helpful. Computer with decent speed internet.
Great location with only 5 minutes walk to waterfront in one direction and 5 mind to Gaya street in the other. Also excellent seafood place opposite plus a bank and laundry. Staff were very friendly and breakfast was better than some hostels.

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!

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.

Liked the over-looking balcony on the second level into the carpark and the late night live performances , bar and band nearby . Central local in Kinabalu for tourist .
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.

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 :)
