Its a nice hostel, been there 3 times. Some rooms are without windows but all was clean. The staff is helpful and nice.. except the guy with the long hair could work a bit on his attitude. Overall I can recommend it.

The hotel is very clean and the staff are extremely helpful and welcoming. Great poster of a proboscis monkey with a boner in the hallway. Light breakfast - white toast and a bit of watermelon - but that seems to be the case everywhere in Sarawak and Sabah.

Really nice, clean and respectable hostel. I was a female travelling alone and I stayed in a 6 person female dorm and felt completly safe and secure and the best part was it was seriously cheap! A couple of people who have written reviews for this Hostel complained that the staff were rude but I truly believe that this was a fault of the person staying and not the staff as they were perfectly lovely. The only thing I would say is this is not a party hostel so if thats what you want go elsewhere!

Heel leuk hostel! Heel schoon, vriendelijke mensen en eigenaresse helpt je met van alles (wij hebben via haar een drie daagse tocht in de jungle geboekt, was heel leuk)! Zeker aan te raden!

Very, very noisy hostel with cockroaches in the bathroom. The room was relatively clean, but barely slept due to the noise of people walking down the corridor past the room.

Owner Comment (Hide)
HI Stephanie, Thanks for your comment. This is very unusual as we normally hear comment that the hostel is too quiet. unfortunately on your second night your adjacent room guests were a little bit noisier, but this is a very isolated incidence. we are actually the quietest hostel in the city. cockroaches are common outside all the buildings and once in a while it can sneak in especially if the windows are left open. But we do make effort to ensure there are non in the rooms, so far so good.
