Had a pleasant stay there. Clean outlet, quiet, happy with my room. ..the only thing is there is no lift. So knee issue person might need to beware of this.

Generally a pleasant stay with helpful staff. It offers dust-free room & toilet. Just that it has no lift within the property. Also, limited space for lugage in the family room.

Only problem with the stairs for a backpacker traveler like me, im on the 3 rd floor and its tiring after a long day touring KK and the Island, and i have to climb the stair to my room with my backpack. Overall the staff, breakfast, safety,cleanliness is great.

Place is in good location”
The place is near to gaya street but there's without lift. And the room that assigned to us with some smell but when we requested with the responsible person, they allowed change the room for us. Those are shared bathrooms and toilets. Only one thing makes feel uncomfortable is the room with 3 beds are comes with only one plug/charger. They should provide at least 2 in 3 persons bedroom.

Best value choice in KK”
Having stayed at some other local guesthouses previously, we chose lavender based on the other positive reviews - we weren't disappointed! A warm welcome from the staff, a clean and spacious bedroom, a warm shower and a quiet night's sleep. Breakfast was basic but similar to other offerings locally. Overall we were very pleased, and would stay here again over the other guesthouses at the same price point in the area.

A group of 6 of us book separately to stay in Lavender Lodge, and the owner is very attentive and assign two rooms right next to each other for us so that we could stay together. *Thumbs up!* We were allowed to keep our extra luggage with them so, that we don’t need to carry it with us when we went for Mt Kinabalu hike. :)

Although it is not in the centre of the old town, the seafood market which is located opposite to the hotel is one of the best in South East Asia. This gives an opportunities to you to have a late night supper even though your flight landed very late in Kota Kinabalu. Staff are very helpful too.

Clean, Good service, Safe.
Pleasantly surprised by how clean it was. Housekeeping cleans the rooms every day. Even the common bathrooms are clean, and has heated shower. Beds are clean and room is spacious. Absolute value for money. A bit tough to find parking at night as the area is near the night market and seafood restaurant.

The room is clean and decorated in sweet home style with floral fabric sofas and a small working desk. However, I am not sure if the room is newly re-renovated, there was a strong rubber type of smells in the room, which made me and my friend feel really uncomfortable. But the staffs are really kind and helpful. They give good advice of food hunting and directory of the city

Great place to stay in Kota Kinabalu”
helpful staff, clean room, good wifi connection
Overall, my stay was good. The staff were all friendly and helpful. They give away free vouchers so you can get a RM10 discount on your boat ride to the islands. The room (dormitory) is cleaned everyday. The breakfast was good and filling (3 pieces of toasted bread + butter and jam + few slices of fruits + coffee/tea). The shower was okay but the heater did not seem to work properly (it was not as hot as I wanted it to be).

valuable for money, friendly and helpful staff and nicely located
the stay was very good. Firstly the hotel transport I requested came ontime just when I touched down. Upon arriving at the hotel, z was being greeted by friendly receptionist and arranged to check in real soon. It was a comfortable room. Surprisingly breakfast was available too although it was just a coffee and toasted bread with slices of fruits. Throughout the stay it was very pleasant, quiet and budgetly affordable for backpacking trip.

The Perfect Hostel!”
Helpful staff, super clean, great location
After these first 2 (most comfortable and pleasant) nts. at Lavender, I booked a 3rd night on my own. Then w/ the owners help (she gave me the phone number of a great home-stay on Labuan Island that made a quick dash into Brunei by ferry, very affordable) After that, I booked another 3 nts. at Lavender. Needless to say - at little more than $10/nt. for a dorm bed - Lavender is excellent value in budget accommodations. Indeed, it is one of the nicest, cleanest, most friendly and well-organized hostels I've ever stayed. The only negative I could find might be the lack of an elevator as those 6 floors of steps were a bit much.

May well be the BEST hostel I've ever stayed at!”
Helpful staff, super clean, great location
Seriously, Lavender hits ALL the things you want in a good hostel: great location, a short walk from the waterfront; quiet; comfy beds in super clean rooms; plenty of spic 'n span showers; super friendly helpful staff (that often turned on the a/c in our dorm room 2 hours early - yay!), nice breakfast room; and the price excellent! Truly high value. I stayed 6 nts. total at Lavender (left baggage whilst I headed to Labuan Island/Brunei for 2 interim nights), and would definitely choose Lavender whenever I'm in KK.

Very friendly hotel staff, clean room
The hotel staff were very friendly and they kept the room clean and orderly. Non-hotel guests should not be allowed inside the dorm room for security and the comfort of others in the dorm. I just came back from a long day walking and when I got inside the dorm room my dorm mate was having her pedicure done and the lady providing the services was sitting on my bed and placed the pedicure items on my bed. I was quite upset coz i couldnt use immediately my bed and i was very tired after a long day. Secondly, I didnt find it hygienic that the pedicure stuff were placed on my bed.

Will definitely come back here again. The staff are very courteous and friendly. The breakfast is just toast and coffee/tea, but for the price, I'm not expecting much. The location is very central, though Kota Kinabalu is just a very small place. Good base to explore nearby islands and some beach activities. I just hope there's a better wifi connection and more electric outlets.

Budget hotel done right”
great value for money, friendly and helpful staff, central location
I would recommend Lavender Lodge as jump off point for a trip in Sabah. It is about 15-20 minute walk from the port where you can go to other islands. We even took to ferry to Labuan en route to Brunei and it was very convenient. It is also accessible to the main area, Gaya Street. There's a convenience store nearby and a lot of dining options. The staff are friendly and very helpful and the hotel is always clean. Only area for improvement is the scarcity of electric sockets. Seriously, in this day and age 1 electric outlet in a room for 2 is simply not enough. Even the common area only had 1 or 2 sockets for the use of guests. Will definitely stay here again should I go back to Kota Kinabalu.
