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 your boss? Perfect, because its not easy to find this place and you can put aside all your gadgets and go exploring the nearby estate which is also part of the homestay and go see ponies graze the fields or finding fruits that are in season.

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 lovely and welcoming. The other staff however need some encouragement. Also there was a large group of guests with many children who ran around wildly for many hours. This was fine with me but other guests were less than impressed.

The rooms are basic but need a deep clean. Ours was full of spider webs and water leak stains. The places needs a good clean and fresh lick of paint. The shower also needs a good scrub - lots of mildew in between the tiles.

We had a car so we found the place quite easily, there were many signs at all the turns. Ranau it's self is a bit of a one horse town. Not much to see it do. A KFC and a few local restaurants. We used this as a base to visit the mountain, hot springs and the POW camps.

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 it is a great location to explore everything in and around Kinabalu National Park. The family who drives the place is very warm and welcoming.

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 staff are always very welcoming and the food is freshly homemade and delicious. The bedrooms are comfortable and simple and the birds, insects and wildllfe make it a unique experience not to be missed.
