Booked the climb with them and stayed therefor 3 nights here. Nice staff, very good tour to the top of Mt Kinabalu. Double room with A/C, no windows, breakfast (toast, jam, tea, coffee) included, for 60RM. Shared bathroom with cold shower and no toilet tissue, not worth to mention. Linen and towel provided.
You'll need at least 20-25 min to the centre, there should be a bus but we didn't get it. There's not much in KK. Good asian centre with cheap beer and great seefood at the waterfront. Tour to Mt Kinabalu was 1100 RM 2D/1N incl 5 meals (buffet), guide, permit, entrance fee, certificate, transport, night at unheated mountain hut
with warm linen provided. Bring a torch, gloves, cap and rain jacked!
It was fun. Would recommand BGB as a cheap tour operater but there should be better places to stay in KK for the same money.
