Easy park access & free WiFi
Opposite Kinabalu Park T: (88) 888 094
This is as close as it gets to staying in Kinabalu Park on a budget.
Tahubang is a new little guesthouse right across from the park entrance. There are six tidy rooms with various configurations of beds to suit everyone from solo travellers to families. None have en-suite bathrooms, but the shared facilities are clean with a reliable hot shower and fresh white towels are provided. The staff are friendly and have the password to the only WiFi connection in the area -- it's free for guests. There isn't a restaurant, so head next door to Restoran Panataran Kinabalu for meals and snacks. For rooms with single beds the rate is per person, so if they're not busy a solo traveller can get a private room for 35 ringgit.
