    This hostel was good. The beds were comfy enough, showers were hot, breakfast was your standard basic hostel breakfast, staff were friendly and eager to help and the communal area was good. The staff also booked our river safari for us for a great budget price which was amazing! The location is also great, being a 5 minute walk from the harbourside restaurants and from all the shops and bus stop to Sepilok. Only down side was wifi was very weak in our room, but overall great stay!
