Hostel parties and trekking tips
21 Lorong Dewan, Australia Place, Kota Kinabalu T: (88) 210 801
One of the Australia Place lot, Bunibon Lodge is a true blue backpackers lodge.
There's a mix of dorms and private rooms on offer, all of which are cheap, cheerful and reasonably clean. We do think they cram too many bunk beds into each room, but at 25 ringgit per night including a towel, internet and breakfast we won't hold it against them. One of Bunibon's highlights is the huge common areas including a screened-in terrace (no mozzies!) with a comfy couch and big TV – it's perfect for hostel parties and the staff are known to party as hard as the backpackers. Other facilities include a book swap, guest computer and self-serve laundry and staff can arrange cheap car rentals and jungle tours.
