Jesselton cabin
The staff was the best part, they were lovely. The hotel however was under some renovations and wasn't too nice or clean. The location was also really good. The other thing is that I booked online and it was called Jesselton cabin but when I got there it was the north Borneo cabin and so I searched for a very long time.

Pretty average
This hostel was ok. Nothing special but not bad. We had a double room on the first floor. It was a large room but pretty basic. The downside was you had to walk through the shared lounge and breakfast area to get to the shower and toilet. I would also say when we were there it was just guys staying and so my wife felt a little uncomfortable when they were all in the lounge and she needed to use the shower. It wasn't a particularly friendly hostel but we might have been unlucky. The wifi was a bit pitchy but ok, the toast for breakfast was pretty good, the staff were helpful if you asked specific questions and location was ok for getting around town. The shower was also pretty naff. It's not bad but when we returned to KK we chose to stay somewhere else.
