          Stayed there with my friend on Feb 2022 for Mount Kinabalu hike. Spent a night and walk 5 minutes directly to KK National Park entrance. Place is clean and very convenient for hikers. Just bring your own food as no food provided & no restaurants nearby.

          4 of us stayed in one room. We bought a triple bed room for the night and paid the added charge for the one extra mattress for the 4th person. We had all the basic amenities, the room was not too cold or too hot and had beautiful scenery all around. 5 minutes away from Mt Kinabalu - we were there to hike up the mountain so location was convenient.

          Location is near the Kinabalu Park. Quiet and peaceful as not many ppl staying during my time. Do aware that the slope is quite steep and some cars may not be able to ascend.
