    Great location”

    good location, friendly staff

    As the airasia flight reached KKIA close to midnight, i decided to give it a try to stay over at Borneo BeacHouse. Initially i was still having a bit doubt when i read from other review that you can walk to Borneo BeacHouse. But yes, all you need to do is having a leisure walk along the road in front of the T2 arrival hall and within 10 minutes you will reach the hotel. The dormitory i stayed was in acceptable cleanliness. there was only another guy inside the dorm then. The fan and temperature at night is enough to let you have a good sleep without any air-conditioning. the bathroom was not really looked nice. it was big and equipped with heater. So basically these are what you need for a comfortable bath. The staff are friendly. As i reached there quite late at night, they actually offer me a pack of instant noodle to cook when i was looking for something to eat. By the way, there are some local stalls selling food nearby as well as convenient store. You just need to walk to Tanjung Rhu Plaza.

    Okay staff and friendly backpackers...Met friends there.

    my stay was okay. iwalked from the airport going to the borneo beachhouse backpackers. the hostel was simple and okay. though it needs more electric fans. the staff are good and the backpackers are friendly. if you want to meet friends this is the melting pot of people of different races. i made friends with 2 people from france and 1 from kl, malaysia...it is nice.

    Good location but can be improved”

    10 minutes walk from KK airport, Cheap and near Tanjung Aru Beach

    I stay at Borneo BeacHouse Backpackers for airplane transfer. Its very near KK domestic airport by just 10 minutes walking. I reach the BeacHouse around 1230am but the reservation still on. The location is good, price is cheap and also 5 minutes walk to Tanjung Aru beach. And the BeacHouse provide shared kitchen and shared living room with Astro TV. Suitable for big group with budget travelling. However, many things still can be improved. Cleanliness of the room, plug in the room (only 1 plug but still not working!), shared bathroom but the bathroom cleanliness also have to be improved. It a bit far from city, thus i will not recommend it if u plan to travel around in KK.
