    Staff are very hospitable Breakfast is good with bananas, coffee, jams, and toasts. Package tours are available for tenants!

    the ceiling of my room was leaking a little bit water on the last day. it is a little bit boring for sole travelers to join package tours.

    We are a group of 3 females staying in KK for our medical electives, we stayed in Masada for 10 nights The hostel is very clean and the beds are really comfy. Good aircon in the rooms and the breakfast is standard. Chilled out atmosphere, we really enjoyed our time at Masada backpackers. Location is good, less than 10 minutes to the night market & water front. The staff in the hostel are very friendly, the boss took us on a tour to the Kinabalu national park for 200RM per person, it was really enjoyable, we had a traditional breakfast, went to a village for a view of the mountain, fed some miniature squirrels, walked around the national park and to the DEXA cattle farm. Great opportunities for pictures and good local food. It was only 3 of us on the tour which was nice as we got a good say in how long we got to spend in each place. Thank you very much to the team at Masada!
