I stayed here with a friend en-route to Kota Kinabalu. BSB is not a cheap city to visit and there was not a lot of choice for hotels in this budget range. We arrived with no place to stay and were recommended this place by the couple who run the Islamic restaurant on the corner. Overall I was pretty impressed...

This is as basic as basic gets. A no frills room for 2 people with attached bathroom will set you back 45 Brunei Dollars in this guest house, 3 floors up. For this you get air con, comfortable bed with spotlessly clean bedding, brilliant location and really friendly staff, though no wifi. The Regalia Museum and Mosque are a 5...

My friends and I stayed for one night at KH Soon. Its the nearest, most affordable place we could find that is close to the Bus Terminal. It occupies the 3rd and 4th floor of an old building. We did not make any reservations since we were still weighing our options where to stay but the front-desk girl was helpful....

KH Soon is really your only option for affordable accommodation in downtown BSB. You get a double room for about $38 BR and the location is great for seeing the city, and close to the public bus terminal. The rooms are huge, but not that comfortable. There is no Wifi or other services.

Resthouse is just 2 minutes from Tamu Kianggeh and main bus staion. However, room is old and not clean. We spent $79 for a room with 4 beds; consider expensive for such quality.

I stayed there for one night and would never do it again. The place was falling apart, the rooms were huge, ugly and dirty. I had to close the curtains and they were almost black and sticky with dirt. Just disgusting.

We stayed 4 nights at the KH Soon as an alternative to staying in seperate dorm beds down the street. We paid B$45 a night for an enormous room with a private Western bathroom, nice AC, and a hot shower. There was no TV but there was a table and a desk. Shared bathrooms are all of the "squat" variety....

The KH Soon Guesthouse is the cheapest place in BSB - keep that in mind. If you just want a place for the night and are on a budget, this place is just about ok. The rooms are very big and sort of clean. The whole place is sort of falling apart though. Plaster is falling from the wall, dirty...
