Mountain Resthouse is about 5 minutes downhill from the Kinabalu Park Entrance (walk in the direction of Sandakan). It's a old wooden lodge with shared bathrooms. The rooms are old and a little shabby but are clean and secure.The bathrooms are clean and there is one hot shower. This place represents fantastic value...but the descriptions on Hostelworld are not accurate and they do not check their bookings. They had no idea I was coming and they have only shared rooms.

A really cute family. The kids were so adorable and super confident with guests. Very playful and funny. Facilities weren't the best but we weren't too bothered. The location of the guesthouse is excellent! Only 5 min from the entrance of Mt kinabalu. If you're looking for a cool vibe and atmosphere I would suggest staying at the nearby town where it's livelier. But if you just want to do treks or climb the mountain this place is perfect!

walking distance to national park, which is excellent.but the resthouse is not maintain properly. no aircond or fan, not that u need any, as the whether is cold enough. old bedroom (old mattresses with bed bugs!) ,old bathroom, thin plywood walls ( u can hear everything), wifi -unable to connect. only 1 lady staff working to clean the room, and cook the meal. so much more rooms for improvement. they should maintain and fix all the broken floors and make it cleaner...not suitable for family.

Drop the prices, this effectively is a home stay, the lodge is in a good location with relation to the park, but overlooks the main road, we did experience heavy goods vehicles at all hours, the worst was the motorbikes over revving on the road. We also experienced a Russian couple playing music watching dvds in the early hours of the morning in the common room, less then responsive to being asked to turn down the volume politely.
