Great location with a beautiful view if you want to stay close to the nationalpark. Delicious food for a good price. Nice staff and sweet cats that belong to the lodge. :) Noisy during night as it is located at the main street.


Really nice view from the dining room, nice to sit and relax in there (especially after you've climbed the mountain!). You get a generous free breakfast every morning, people are nice, but the dorms are cold! Good location to walk to the park.


Nice views from outside eating area with friendly cats. Good breakfast!


Value for money for a reasonable size hostel reasonablely near to the Mt. KK National Park.. I like the countryside feel of the property.

Great place to stay before a climb up Mt. Kinabalu. Short walk to the park headquarters. They also have a small shop to buy anything you may need last minute for the climb, I bought gloves and a warm hat, which were much needed. The view is also really nice.


Nice hostel for trips to Kinabalu Nationa Park. The dorm is kind of crowded, but good enough. Only thing, it gets pretty cold at night and the only provide a very thin blanket (charge you RM5 for an extra one).
