Really nice place out in the mountains. Its about 1.6km to the park and about 3km to the nearest WIFI spot (D'villa). The bottom beds had little head space but were really comfy and the lockers are pretty small but its not the most likely place to get robbed. The mountain is run by and awesome family and there's insects absolutely everywhere EXCEPT the bedrooms and bathrooms. They also cook pretty nice meals :)

LOVED IT Not super social for a backpacker but I mean that's kinda granted as there's not many backpackers in Borneo. Location is wonderful and the staff are so helpful! Foods a bit pricey for what you get but alls good.

One of my most favorite place on earth!! ;) All the staff were really nice! They treat you like they're your family! They are very helpful and very accomodating! We stayed here after we climbed the mountain. I decided to stay only for one night but ended up staying for few days more! It's a perfect place to disconnect on outside world (They dont have wifi connection ;) ) So you will really just enjoy being immersed in the nature. Perfect location and good value for money! Will come back again!

Great views and staff, a bit of a walk to get there though. No wifi, and hot water is only on certain times of day. Meals are offered but not the best value, but if you can deal with all of this to enjoy nature by Kinabalu, this is the place!

What a great place to stay in Kinabalu park! Couldn'g wish for better! It is not right at the entrance (2km from the park), but the walk is very picturesque. If you're not much up for trekking there is always a transfer as well so many pick up trucks are passing on the road, you can always hitchkike. The house is so cozy, has amazing sceneries around. The common area is very cool and has a very social vibe. People running the homestay are super friendly and helpful

Fantastic stay with great scenery. The girls at the lodge are amazing and so friendly. There's not much to do here although the place is fantastic for chilling out. If you want to chill out for a couple of days then this is the place to be.

Quiet, good location, wonderful patio with great views (not of Mount Kinabalu, but still great views), nice common area, and helpful staff. Would have liked to stay longer!
