First of all, you need to understand the location of the property - it is farther away from the Ranau town center and not properly located on either google or on other maps. Actual location is 5.927038,116.676186 - put it on google maps and save the location to be able to navigate there. Due to the location and the region... More

We were so delighted with this lovely homestay! We stayed for a week while visiting with our daughter who is spending a year teaching English at a school in Ranau. She was concerned that we would have trouble finding a place to stay as Ranau is not a big tourist stop, but we found Slagon online and it was perfect!... More

At first glance, Slagon homestay look just like any typical house around the area in Ranau town. Staff are friendly and helpful. Love the small pond at the back of the homestay. Its good for family or any backpackers who want to stay near Ranau.

Nice people, quiet and beautiful garden, Pound, the oustide area is a bridge over the river, very decent room and price. Highly recommended. The exact location is not the one given by trip advisor right now. Better ask and follow the signs .

This looks like it could be good: there's a pretty garden and eating area. But the rooms were tiny and really grotty, and the staff never spoke or smiled. The bed was horrible: stained and too short, and the bathroom was disgusting. We went to the hot springs partly so that we didn't have to go in the filthy shower... More

First of all, totally not affected by recent quakes. With that set aside and cleared, this place is the perfect hideout from your normal bustle of the city. Rooms might not be top notch, food might not be Michelin grade but its the imperfections that crafted its perfection. Overall, you will feel at home, but in a village. Hiding from... More

We stayed here for two nights. After reading good reviews we were excited. The staff however were not great. They seemed not to understand English very well and were not very friendly. When asking where our room was they just pointed and said the over there. No information given. We met the owners later that night and they we very... More

We stayed at Slagon's for one night (if we didn't have to catch a flight we'd definitely have stayed longer). This is a perfect place if you are a family or just want a little escape from the busy hotels in the touristic areas. I'd recommend a car if you plan to stay longer. If you do have a car... More

Some say, it is hard to find, but everybody will help you find this beautifull place. The owners are friendly and make nice diners and interesting conversation! If you like nature and want to experience some local life, i can highly recommend this place!

I have been a visitor to Slagon Homestay for over 3 years. Yes it is difficult to find in the dark but finding this jewel of a place is well worth the effort. The location is just amazing with a river flowing under the dining/living area bridge and you instantly feel like you are in another world. The owners and... More
