Lavender Lodge is in a good location, near to shops, transport and restaurants. The 'deluxe' private room was more basic than we were expecting but was functional and clean. The A/C worked well. The shower had good heat and power, however it flooded the whole bathroom when you used it, which was a bit annoying. The sink also leaked a...

Stayed here for four nights, great central location very close to main fresh food markets. Room was really clean, but very small couldn't have curtains open because of apartments and flats over looking room. For the first two days staff smiled a lot but! Not much use for advice and help. On day three and four met the owners who...

This b&b has everything you need: Clean rooms, good prices, very nice and helpful staff, deposit box for your valuable belongings, hot water shower and air condition. We would defenitly book the hostel again! One minor point: We stayed for 3 nights and always had the same one jam for breakfast - a larger selection would be nice.

Nice place to stay, friendly staff and clean rooms. We paid roughly 100 ringets a night for a double room. Shower, ac and fan. Fairly nice part of town. If you have time to kill in the week go to the islands. <---

I been to Kinabalu for second time this year and Lavender lodge always in my heart. This hostel was very strategic and easy access to riverfront and night market. This hostel was very clean and comfortable with reasonable price. The staff always very kind and sweet to greet me every time.

Stayed here for four nights, first with ensuite bathroom and then charged to one with shared bathroom. Cleanest hostel I have experienced during my three month travel through SEA, very nice staff!! I would stay here again. Only as single traveller it is a bit difficult to meet other people as there is not a common area.

This place have been well reviewed on the Trip Advisor and other web sites, however I think it is a bit overrated. Don't get me wrong, it was alright, well placed in the centre , very clean etc. However we did get better deals in Kota Kinabalu in terms of value/quality after our return from in land travel. In particular...

£13 for a double room with air con and private bathroom with hot water plus breakfast included and free wifi. Great value for money. Clean room - friendly staff who were happy to help 24 hours a day. Good central location less than 1km from the ferry port, bus station (airport shuttle) and most popular eateries/restaurants.
