It is basic and that's the way i sum it up for this hotel. Booked thru the agent and was hoping for the better. But again...it is 2000m in the mountain so just need to put up the right expectation. Receptionist is no no...i don't say rude but service just non existence...nothing...nothing at all!! Room was simple...Lower your expectation if... More

We stayed at Kinabalu Rose Cabin, great views but basic amenities. A wet carpet odour greeted us in the passageway. The room that we had, has a heater problem. The temperature cannot be adjusted, the water was very hot. We use a pail to mix the water . There was a power tripped at the most crucial moment when we... More

We spent three cold, noisy nights here in October 2013. It was OK but absolutely stank, especially in our room. I think someone must have ignored the "no Durian " rule. Ugh, ugh, ugh. Our room could hardly have been called spacious and had a basic bed with rock hard blocks of thick foam for pillows. Our first night was... More

A happy gathering turned horror when a friend noticed her daughter did not come out of the bathroom after more than 20 mins. When she did not reply from inside, we decided to break the door. Such a tragic scene when we found her lying flat unconcious on the bathroom floor. We had to take her to the ER in... More

I arrived here around midday looking to book a dorm bed. I had one of their fliers from Kota Kinabalu that stated it was 20RM a night per person. When I checked in they charged me 30RM (no breakfast included) and told me that flier was old and there was nothing they could do. She actually laughed at me when... More

Having found out about Rose Cabin in the Lonely Planet guide we all expected it to be much better than it was. We are not fussy travelers and are fine with basic hostels, however, it was like staying in somewhere that wasn't finished yet, or worse still that needed vital refurbishment but they just hadn't bothered with it. The three... More

We stayed here in march 2010 as part of a package with a climb atop mt Kinabalu. I believe most guests who stay here do so for that very same reason (or perhaps to visit Kinabalu park). That said, it's really very basic and simply a place to crash for the night. The room itself was very shabby and the... More
