The hostel is very sociable and a good place to meet fellow travellers. The staff are friendly and helpful, and it's good value for money. The breakfast is good, including fresh fruit if you're early enough. It is available till 12, which is very convenient. Free Milo and Teh Tarik all day is also a nice touch.
very friendly staff, 24h reception (we arrived 8h later because of a delayed flight, but our room was ready for us anyways.) they are willing to inform on sights and transportation and give out schedules. there is a book shelf where you can borrow books and travel guides and real coffee for breakfast.

Great location and all the staff were incredibly friendly and helpful, even allowing us to rearrange our booking while there. They are also happy to arrange onward transport etc for you, if you require it. The accommodation is simple and straightforward... But good value for money and all you really need for a stay in kota kinabalu
Very clean, very helpful staff, good location, good value for money with breakfast included

The staff were amazing, room comfortable and clean and location spot on! Free wifi and aircon in the dorm room was also a bonus! I stayed here twice for 2 nights at the start and end of my trip on Borneo. Highly reccommend
The staff was really helpful, Daniel who helped us book a trip to kinanbatangan which ended up being the best trip.

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!

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

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.

Nice space and atmosphere to relax in and to meet others. clean toilets and showers. great location for everything.
The large common area, since it is a great escape from the rooms. Close to Jesselton Point for ferries and many restaurants are nearby. Banking and laundry service are also quite nearby.
