A bit far from Ranau town. Not convenient without own transport.

It was awesome. Clean and quiet plus the staff people were very hepful. One mistake I made was that I went there by bus. Although they came to pick me up at the bus stop I was totally helpless in going anywhere. It is off the beaten path so you would need a car.

The family invited us upon arrival to a weddingparty of a niece. It was a great experience to have a wedding in the kampong.

    stayed in a different room this time. it was a bit noisy at night probably because there were birds outside the room. the heater wasn't really working as the temperature switch was spoiled. nonetheless, the place is clean and quiet.

    Peace of mind”
    This homestay is definitely my go-to place if you want that peace and quiet away from the city. It's not that far from Ranau town either though i wouldn't say it's a walking distance. The road isn't lit hence it would be very dark at night if you'd like to go on foot. Nonetheless, the bed is comfortable, the room is cold even without turning on the A/C. Water heater is installed too in the bathroom. there's a lounge area where you can just enjoy the serenity. i'd highly recommend this place. Cheers

    Village Stay”
    More than satisfied for the money spent on this room. Very peaceful,relaxing and laid back stay while you are here. Suitable for family with kids,a playing open field available near car park. Although no breakfast provided the dining area was setup well for guests to relax and enjoy food. NOTE: Own or rental car is absolutely necessary and if you really want cooling weather better to stay in Kundasang since this home-stay is in Ranau!

    I love how beautiful the place is, despite the distance from town. Stayed here for a night, although there's no tv in the room, but this place is still a good place to stay. You get to spend more time with who you go with, since there's no tv. Will definitely come again!

    Perfect for retreat”
    landscape, entertainment hall and price
    this homestay is perfect for retreate. I was planning for perfect weekend rest at ranau after long weekday of work and i get it here. There room is not fancy or spacious but it is not important as you will feel more than comfortable outside your room. You can rest at the common area watching television or socializing with other guest in the entertainment hall.

    Friendly owners, food and atmosphere
    We really enjoyed our time at the Slagon homestay. The food really was the best Malaysian food we had during the holiday. The owners are really friendly and helpful and although the place is outside Ranau and possibly difficult to find if you are using your own transport, we phoned the owners and were picked up from Ranau. Those with their own transport can phone and get more detailed directions, there are also several signs to help guide you in too. The following day we shared a vehicle with other guests to Kinabalu park(70 MYR for the vehicle) and from there got the bus back to Ranau (5MYR) and negotiated with a local taxi driver to take us to poring and then back to Slagon homestay (50MYR) so the location was not a problem for us. A nice tranquil getaway owned by a really friendly family in a peaceful location.

    Beautiful place. Friendly staff, loud noises in room, no WiFi”
    Friendly staff, the place was really beautiful but the rooms and facilities so old. It could be improved 200%, and charge a little more for be room. The atmosphere could be better also, it did feel a bit awkward in the communal area. Not so inviting. The worse part is sleeping in room, you get no sleep. There’s a constant droning noise maybe from the air con machines in the back..... don’t know.... so loud that we woke up and had to leave ASAP. Overall. It’s cheap. Friendly. I’d say that they could have a restaurant or something that serves food, breakfast..

    Not bad”
    Overall this place is great for those who want to seek tranquility and escape from bustling city area as it is located around village area. The price is very reasonable with the room that I stay for a night. In terms of cleanliness I'd say it's very good and simple. Would I stay again in the future? Definitely yes! What can be improve: - Meals. FYI, you need to inform the staff earlier if you want to add-on breakfast as there is no chef working around during my stay. - Signboard need to be placed at the main road junction cause the location is quite hidden.

    Very clean room, nice for two person, we pay very little money and get such unexpected clean and comfortable room, feel happy for that. The scenery also nice. Just one bad thing i can think of is the room door should add on another lock from inside, currently is only lock in the door knob, feel very unsafe, we have to move the sofa to the door for safety purpose.

    Close to nature but far from town centre”
    Peaceful, Nice, Bad Location
    This is not a hotel, just like a resort or homestay with rooms. Location is very remote in a village, if you don't have a transport, you might face difficulty in finding the hotel and the public transport do not pass by to the hotel area. In my case, luckily i had rent a mobile as they were five of us. The distance of this hotel to Kinabalu park is about 10 km. Do not check-in late night as the area will be very dark, you might miss out the sign board that leads you to the hotel. We had requested the hotel to provide us with some breakfast (we stated that in the booking remark). U need to pay about RM6-7 per person for simple breakfast. This price is reasonable as you don't have to think about finding your food the next day you wake up in the morning whatmore with the hotel's location quite isolated from other ammenities like eateries. Unfortunately, when we arrived, the hotel staff told us they were unable to provide the breakfast because they had unpurposedly missed out our request. So, the next day, we checked out very fast because we need to fill our empty stomach and can't wait to searching for the nearby restaurant (which was about 5 km from the hotel, located at the town). Other than that, overall we had a pleasant stay. The hotel is nice, the ambient is calm and very natural.

    Nice homestay experience”
    Location, price, well kept grounds
    This was a great way to explore Mt. Kinabalu and the surrounding area. Very helpful staff and a very comfortable place to stay. Rooms are pretty basic with lizards and cockroaches willing to pay a visit if you aren't vigilant at keeping them out. But that isn't because it's dirty but rather because you are truly in the countryside. So we didn't mind the wildlife because we knew we were staying in the wild. Would recommend renting a car to make getting around the area easier as well.
