    this is one of d nearest lodge to Kinabalu Park (for those who want to climb Mount K), it’s about 10min walk n less than 5min drive... we took family room with 2bedrooms, hot water is sufficient, but to boil hot water u need to rent a boiler from the receptionist for rm5/night...breakfast is at 7am, not much but u got bread, baked beans, egg and coffee to keep u ‘full enough’ to climb mount K opposite of d lodge, theres a chinese restaurant station 89 where they serve delicious chinese cuisine & price is soo much cheaper than KK

    Overall wonderful with only some minor shortfall ”

    The staff made you feel like your part of the family there. There is hot shower which is manually adjusted by yourself. This place is only around 500m away from Mount Kota Kinabalu Park which is a plus point for hikers. The weather here is great and gets really cold at night. Opposite this lodge is a small mart where you can get basic supplies and also a Chinese restaurant. It is just by the road side which makes it easy for you to drive in and you have your own car park. It's sometimes slightly noisy from the opposite road due to some loud karaoke session and road traffic but it did not really bother me and my wife at all. There were some mosquitoes on the first day but then they dissappear thereafter. The staff members are great and you feel like home when you are at the public area which is also a place to connect to fast wifi but there is no room wifi. The public place is where everyone hangs out at night and the view is great. Laundry service is provided at a really great price. I got mine free for one session due to staying for three days and drove my car there. A good place to stay. I highly recommend. It's a place that is like this point to get to the other places like DESA farm (40 mins), poring hot spring (1hr) and others.

    Exceptional”

    The view from the restaurant/common area is amazing! They have a lot of nice plants, and two very friendly cats. The hot water heater in the shared dorm bathroom was excellent, necessary at this elevation. The food was good. There is a little shop to buy snacks or warm clothes. They have a laundry service. The dorm was adequate but be prepared to be woken up by climbers early in the morning. I had to share mine with a member of the opposite sex which felt awkward and slightly unsafe, especially because I wasn’t told it was a mixed-gender dorm and nobody else was in there except me, but luckily they were nice. Still, a great value for the money. It's not a very far walk to Kinabalu Park entrance (but I wouldn't recommend it if you are dragging a suitcase behind you or are doing it at night as there is no sidewalk and the road is curvy and dangerous; you will be walking on the shoulder and in the grass), or they have parking if you have a car.

    ALWAYS AND ALWAYS THE BEST STAY”

    This time i came just to have some good time for myself. Practically just sleep, wake up, eat, shower, chilling at the balcony, enjoy the views and repeat. It feels just the same as the time i came here before. As this place is very near to Kinabalu Park, climbers are very welcome here. The foods are nice and the staff are helpful. Things like hair dryer, water kettle, extension cord are not provided in the room so you can bring yourself or borrow from the front desk (with separate charges).
