Liked: 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.

Disliked: It was very quiet when I was there which made it hard for me as a single traveller to meet people.

Liked: The staff are nice but everyone still leaves you alone to do what you will.

Disliked: It looks a bit scraggy round the edges, but it's still clean so it's no problem.
