The location was ok. The Hostel is situated close to the water but it isn&'t anything special. Unfortunatly the common room was to little, but they also had a roof garden, which was nice yet not really used by the other guests. We booked a homestay over the hostel, which was nice.

Great location and nice location to relax out to get from the humidity outside. Friendly employees and great big, although basic, double rooms.

Very very good location, employees were brilliant answering any questions and organising tour for me. Excellent sea view from room and rooftop with sea points of interest was pleasant to sit out in during evening

  Rebecca B... 

Location was brilliant, as properly as helpful staff who gave honest advice about places you can visit alone rather than a tour etc. Hostel is basic but for Borneo, clean, comfortable and does the job!

The hostel is right next to the harbour so in a great location, but the hot water in the showers never seemed to work, and the cockroaches weren't too great either! Friendly and helpful staff though.
