Lucy Backpackers

Lucy opened her home to travellers back in 1995, making this one of the longest running backpackers in Kota Kinabalu.

The vibe is more homestay than hostel with the upstairs converted into a mix of dorms and private rooms with shared bathrooms. The rooms are very simple – beds, fans and lockers – but there's a cosy reading room and a furnished balcony for chill-out time. Lucy has great advice about what to see and where to eat, but note that she is not fond of party animals and strictly enforces a midnight curfew. Nor does Lucy take online bookings – she prefers you show up and see what's available. Rates include WiFi and breakfast.
