I stayed in dorm for 3 days 2 nights. I found that the staffs are friendly and helpful. The boss is nice and kind.
For the view part, since I was stayed in dorm, so I couldn’t see any view from my room, thus I can only see the view from the restaurant. I found that some of the tourists brought their own gears to watch birds there. The view is nice although is not Mt Kinabalu.
Speaking about the food, it was surprisingly nice! I ordered honey chicken for my lunch and curry chicken for the dinner, believe me or not, it were fantastic to me~
Since the lodge is situated on the mountain, there are a lot of bugs there. I think this is the normal phenomena. Although some of the bugs are scary but I did took a lot of photos with them. About the cleanliness, I personally don’t feel satisfied due to the irritated smell of the toilet and blanket until I heard the boss' explanation that it is unavoidable due to the humidity.
For the entertainment part, I saw some of the tourists barbeque there while some of them steamboat in the restaurant. There is a TV in the restaurant so for the tourist who wanted to stay in dorm, you can watch TV from here. I heard the staffs said that private rooms got their own TV set.
Compared to other travelers, I am a bit lucky that I didn’t meet with electricity break out but be rational, the government sector is the one who suppose to be responsible for that. We shall not blame the lodge for this.
At last but not least, I accidentally found that the lodge also sells variety of essential gears for mountain hiking for examples, second hand jackets, hiking sticks, torch lights, and etc. This is very good for people who wanted to hiking but don’t have the gears.
