This place made me feel at home since the first moment. They even write your name on a welcome board if you make a booking. :) Friendly and useful staff, always with a smile. They provide good breakfast and keep things outside, so you can wake up late and still eat. Free coffee, free tea and free water. It gave the feeling their priority is to make you feel confortable instead of making a profit out of you. Super clean, they even make your bed every morning.
Very helpful and friendly staff always willing to help and say hello whenever they see you. Free breakfast, tea and coffee until 1pm (perfect for those days you want to wake up late!). Very clean hostel with lots of information and good wifi throughout rooms and lounge areas. Hot showers with complimentary shampoo and shower gel. Free luggage storage facility if your leaving KK for day or two on a trip this is very useful!

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.

The staff upgraded me to a double bed, which was great. The balcony is good and the a/c is powerful. Also the hot shower works well. The location is perfect for access to all the things you will want to do in KK. Plus lots of shops and restaurants nearby and that all-important night market for top-notch fresh seafood at unbelievably cheap prices.
Good location in town. If you're in Borneo to party, and not experience the wonders, then this is a great place.
