Really lovely staff, very helpful. Free breakfast (toast and tea and coffee) until 10am but you can help yourself and we were able to have hot drinks all day. The staff were helpful when booking a climb up Mount Kinabalu, and always smiling. A wonderful balcony that views into the forest with views of butterflies and sometimes monkeys. A lovely little chill out spot.
Only minus is the walls are thin and the floors, so people who are noisy are a pain but there are plenty of signs asking guests to be considerate!

I loved the sound they made too, like a grunting cow, the whole experience was amazing.

I also spotted a huge lizard but ...

... we headed back down to the lodge. We were absolutely starving after 8 hours of climbing already today, despite the fact it was only 10am! But we were rewarding with a lovely breakfast of toast, eggs, sausages, beans and mashed potato. Feeling much better with a full stomach we packed our bags and set of with Petros for the climb back down. For some reason Sharif seemed to be in a mad rush down and was determined to reach the bottom in 2 hours, apparently ...

... us to KK Times Square, a business park/bars&restaurants located just on the edge of KK. Apparently all the really nice bars are here and we stopped off at one showing the football as we enjoyed a tower of tiger between the 5 of us. There is also a club called the white room (surprising all white) we were able to look in which is meant to the the 'cool' place to go, so we might try that out next weekend. We ...
