Location Information

We are located in the area called the former Australian Place, Along Jalan Dewan. It is where the Australian army camped when they landed in Jesselton (now known as Kota Kinabalu city). It is also a hotspot for backpackers for we have several other backpackers lodges in this area. We are also located a minute away from the City's Traffic Police Station and a stone-throw away is the famous Atkinson Clock Tower. The Atkinson Clock tower was built in memory of the first district officer of Jesselton, Francis Georger Atkinson. He died of "Borneo Fever" in 1903.

Just a block away is Gaya Street. Gaya Street is also a hotspot for backpackers. There are many banks and travel agencies in this area to make it easy for travelers to book a tour.Gaya Street also hosts the weekly Sunday Market. Its a place to be if you are interested with locally produced goods and souvenirs.

Bunibon Lodge is a very strategic place for travelers because everything is in walking distance. Bus station,Shopping malls, clinics,clubs, post office, travel agencies, restaurants, supermarket, fish market, night market, fruit shops, banks, nightclubs etc etc. Even the ferry terminal is nearby which enables you to visit the 5 islands nearby where you can enjoy snorkelling, diving, sunbathing and other water sports.

Bunibon Lodge is also very near the small pocket of greeneries where you can hear birds chirping in the morning, squirrels running around the tree branches and naughty macaques wandering around.
