Sabah has the highest mountain in Southeast Asia, Mount Kinabalu. Indigenous people generally believe that Mount Kinabalu is the abode of the spirits of the dead. Traditional belief systems were linked to agricultural practices and management of the ecosystem.

    Not sure what to say, I suppose the place was clean etc. My SLR camera and all the lenses got stolen out of the locker though (locked!). Not great as I was in Borneo on a work related trip and needed the camera. Luckily I had the laptop, passport and wallet with me at the conference I was attending. I do not think the place is less secure than any of the other hostels though (door to the dorm does not lock and you can put your own lock on the locker in the room).
