Clean, basic hostel”

The hostel is a little walk from town (1.5kms). There are few eateries and mini marts in the area so not a problem for food in the evening. Rooms are basic but clean. We had 2 double rooms with shared bathroom, which were fine. Bathrooms small but ok. Staff nice.

Not valuable for the money spend”

Sorry, I have to be honest. I had experience other accommodation within that price but with better services. The room without a toilet should be ok but the toilet facilities were not in good condition, water clog, a bit dirty, the water heater does not function and bit noise. The room dusty and stain on the bed. The toilet was very small just fit for medium size of person. The location just nice which is around a 30minute drive from kundasang. The restaurant, speedmart and laundry are available during the day. Night only 1 restaurant operates. Hope can have a better improvement.

Quite far from Ranau town”

Not so much to do in this area, and little option for restaurant either. Close with self-service laundry. Good water pressure, the staff was very helpful. No grab or taxi, have to wait for mini van for a few minutes in front of the main road to the town.

Not worth paying for the room rate. Lousy. 2 karaokes at just next block imagine the noise and in the morning your next door room without bathroom will be like smashing your room. Disaster.
