This looks like it could be good: there's a pretty garden and eating area. But the rooms were tiny and really grotty, and the staff never spoke or smiled. The bed was horrible: stained and too short, and the bathroom was disgusting. We went to the hot springs partly so that we didn't have to go in the filthy shower... More

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... More

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... More

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

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... 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
