A home away from home
What we say:
If you don't mind adding five minutes to your walk to Gaya Street, the reward is staying at one of the most charming hostels in Sabah. Masada Backpacker is a cosy, family-run spot offering a mix of dorms and private rooms with cool air-con and comfy beds. Masada's dorms are some of the best in the city, and we like the private rooms too though not all have a window. The communal areas have a homey vibe and you can watch TV, use the guest computer or fix yourself a meal. The garden terrace is perfect for swapping stories with fellow travellers, though you'll want to chat with the staff for local travel tips and their recommendations on where to get the yummiest food. Rates include a towel, WiFi and a light breakfast. Coffee-snobs rejoice – they serve the real deal here.
