Overall not bad, the walk from the junction is a little steep with backpacks, the location is 2k from the national park so is walking distance via the road. The view from the lodge is breathtaking staff are friendly. The dorm was clean, comfy pod beds. No wifi. Breakfast isn't included and basic, pay for tea and coffee outside of breakfast time. dinner was poor. Take food and water if you go, you can't reach a shop and although you can buy water and drinks they are pricey for a backpacker.

Great hostel, in easy reach of the Kinabalu National Park. Staff very accommodating, and made us lunch outside of the allotted time. Things to note; there are moths everywhere, which wasn't a problem for us, might be for others. No wifi, or much signal. No TV. Perfect to relax and unwind. The communal area is very close to some of the rooms, and with thin walls we were awoken at 5.30 when others decided to have breakfast. No towels provided. Great porridge - not included. Bring cash.

Very lovely stay! Within walking distance to Kinabalu national Park. Beautiful view from the living area/porch. Nice vegetarian food. Stayed in the dorm for two nights, good thick mattresses, everyone has there own space. If you are arriving after 17h and expect diner, better warn them in advance, they only cook diner of you make a reservation for dinner.

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!
