Had a problem with staff we asked how to get to semporna. He told us we had to take a taxi to the bus station which we know normally costs 30 ringgit but he told us 40 and would take 1 hour journey . When we were dropped off (20 minute drive) the taxi driver asked for 55! We rang the guy at the hostel and he admitted he told us differently and hung up. So angry as we already thought this was too expensive and had trusted him. Also the breakfast is cold and so is the coffee. No lockers in dorms.

Lovely dorms on a Hill in the jungle with beautiful views. It is clean and the staff is very helpful. The only things we were missing was some more interesting alternatives in the restaurant since there was nowhere else to eat anywhere nearby. Otherwise a lovely stay!

Paganakan Dii is a real treat. Perched above the trees, our jungle chalet had a balcony from which we enjoyed the view, and a semi-open shower. The atmosphere was warm and friendly and the food great. It was a wonderful retreat from the tourist bussle of Sepilok. My only point of constructive criticism would be that there was usually only one staff person on duty at a time, and this could mean a long wait for service if, for example, she or he was on the phone.

The place could be so much better. We got there on Friday and there were two schools there for the weekend, probably around 60 kids, which already ruined the peaceful retreat aspect of it. We had booked the dorm but due to the kids (we assume) we were moved to the area where the volunteers stayed, no explanation was given for this. At the restaraunt the service was awful. It took over an hour for food, and they constantly forgot what you ordered. This place was a let down, such a shame.
