Bario’s various component villages are home to a whopping 19 guesthouses where you can meet English-speaking locals and dine on delicious Kelabit cuisine (accommodation prices almost always include board). Some of the most relaxing establishments are a bit out of town (up to 5km). Air-con is not necessary up in Bario, but hot water – alas, not yet an option – will some day be a nice treat. Almost all rooms have shared bathroom facilities. If you’re on a very tight budget, enquire about renting a bed without board.
