Place is near city center. Good location near malls, restaurants, markets etc. You can take a stroll through the city and enjoy the establishments around the area. Place is also near the seaside, you can enjoy the laid-back feels of the place and just relax.
I stayed at PODs with a friend several nights during our stay in borneo last year in may. The staff is very friendly and helpful with informations. The 1st and 2nd time we stayed in a six beds dorm and was clean, with lockers and fan. They keep our backpacks for a couple nights when we couldn't bring with us on a short trip and the latest time they give us an upgrade for free in a twin room (very appreciate). I definitely would come back! Lidia from Italy and Nico from Argentina
The place is nice and very convenient. I was a late check in after 11 pm and they send me the self-check in procedure which is very helpful. I could get inside my room with no problem. The breakfast is good and the staff is very helpful and smilling all the time ^_^
We stayed in for a couple of nights and we very pleased with how kind and helpful the staff were - allowing us book things on their computer, organising taxis, helping us to find our way around etc. Dorm is clean and comfortable, if a little cramped. Basic free breakfast included (tea/coffee, toast) and within easy walking distance of shops, restaurants etc.
The room is air conditioned and comfortable, the staff is very friendly and honest. Two of the staff took myself and two others to the night market after their shift. It was very nice. I wanted a single room but booked a double which was a mistake and they offered me a refund of the difference in price when I arrived which was awesome. I appreciated the honesty.
I stayed 4 days at PODs backpacker. It's a very clean and nice guesthouse with breakfast included. I had a single room with a very good mat (which is a real treat) and a small wardrobe. I really liked the atmosphere there. The wifi is good. All staff members are really friendly and helpful. I can't recommend more than booking with them your trips in Sabah. They organised for me the Mount Kinabalu climbing, my stay at Sepilok and a river cruise on the Kinabatangang river. Everything was great at a very good price. They also helped me change my plan during this tour. Lots of good and practical advice & ideas are shared at the lobby to enjoy the stay (KK is not my preferred city but I made nice trips to the small islands in front of KK). I'll come back with great pleasure. Hat off to the staff! …
I stayed in a double room, no window but the ambience is quite OK for me. The mattress is comfy enough. The room is clean. No electric kettle, but u can get hot water at the frontdesk (hot/cold ready-to-drink water dispenser available), the shared bathroom is OK (2 toilets, 2 showers). It is adjecent to the famous shopping complex, CentrePoint and near to restaurants and other eateries. Overall, if you are a backpacker, you might love to stay here!
Pod's is well located,good value,small and friendly with helpful staff who are only too happy to help you out wherever required.The rooms are clean and perfectly cool enough with the ceiling fan.Breakfast is a buffet: fruit and toast,tea and coffee and very welcome.
I liked staying at PODs hostel. The staff is very friendly, the rooms are clean and equiped with lockers and the location is good. It is easy to book some trips at the 'service desk' of the hostel. It has all the things you need for a comfortable stay.
it is a comfortable and clean backpacker hostel, with friendly staff, always keen to help and give travel suggestions. Good location. The only negative thing is the breakfast (included in the price), which is very poor. Overall, I would recommend the Pod’s.
