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

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

It is 3.8km away when you see its first signboard at the main road or Ranau rown. Going deep into the village, after many turns. Frankly to say if you arrive at dark, its very hard to find when solely base on its signboard. It is located in the village, yes IN A VILLAGE where you wont find any mountain... More

BZmum's review has described the comfort level of this homestay quite accurately. It's what I would call 2-star comfort, in a pleasant rural location near Renau. The location makes a good overnight stopover between Mt. Kinabalu park and Poring hot springs. The meals offered were inexpensive and excellent, and the hosts welcoming. Bugs in the early evening are a bit... More

Budget homestay in Silou, Ranau with a local Malaysia farmstay experience. If you don't mind insects creeping around the property and some in your rooms, this homestay provides clean basic facilities, with value for money local meals that can be added on. There are fruit trees, berries shrubs, an animal paddock, small river in the property so this is a... More

I have been there for my research. It was a clean and well-managed homestay, surrounded by huge well-preseved land. The staff there was so nice. We were having great experience with the homestay, with short jungle trekking and plucking the rambutan in its own orchard! However, for other activities and meal, early booking required. The price is reasonable too!!
