Located in Kota Kinabalu, 1 km from Filipino Market Sabah, TOOJOU Kota Kinabalu provides air-conditioned rooms and a bar. Among the facilities of this property are a restaurant, a 24-hour front desk and a shared lounge, along with free WiFi throughout the property. The accommodation features a tour desk, and luggage storage for guests. Everything was great. The location was very accessible and was near some famous tourist spots such as the Atkinson Tower and the Observatory Hill. The staff were incredibly nice and was super helpful in assisting you with any of your needs. The owner was super friendly as well, even had a chitchat with him during my stay. The hostel itself was perfect. There is a resto/cafe right at the ground floor and you also have access to the co-working space at the mezzanine where there is billiard pool, tv, lots of lounge chairs and beanie bags, free flowing coffee, and a slide !! The dorm rooms were super clean and comfy and also comes with a spacious storage space. I enjoyed my stay at TOOJOU, it is by far one of the best hostels I've stayed in and would definite recommend it to anyone who will be visiting Kota Kinabalu.
