Liked: The sheets were clean, blankets warm and the breakfast was tasty.

Disliked: Very very noisy in all rooms, shower was over the toilet and the room wasn't big enough. The bathroom was musty. No English tv channels. A squirrel was nesting in the roof of my room and between that and the trucks it kept me wide awake.

Liked: It was great as a cheaper alternative of accommodation for when you want to hike in Kota Kinabalu park. It was clean an the furniture was whole. Breakfast was included which was great and they even had a small store where you could buy a few things if you had forgotten anything e.g. jackets.

Disliked: Very cold, could have used more blankets

Liked: Nice jungle location. The views were great. The hammocks were comfortable. The longhouse dorm was really beautiful and the bunks were spaced well apart.

Disliked: Terrible Wi-Fi. I know this is a lame complaint about a jungle lodge, but I desperately needed internet access the day I was there and it was incredibly frustrating. Also, they only offer food at certain times, so if you show up just after lunch, you'll be hungry for a few hours. And it's pretty short-staffed. You might have to wait for food or drinks for a very long time.

Liked: I like the view of the vegetable farms from the hostel's restaurant during breakfast. The breakfast itself was good. Hot shower.

Disliked: The staff should've put on the bed sheets and pillow case first, we were too tired after hiking down Mt. Kinabalu.

Liked: The view down the mountain from the restaurant area is spectacular. You also get a generous cooked breakfast included, which is particularly good id you're staying there as a jumping off point to climb Mount Kinabalu.

Disliked: The power is intermitant and the lights went out a few times during dinner while we were staying there, plunging us into darkness. Having said that, it's quite a fun experience and they have torches at the ready to hand out.

Liked: It's so close to the park and the restaurant area is right of the cliff over looking the valley below. Great place to get dinner after a day in the park and looking at the beautiful sunset, if it isn't too windy or to foggy!
