Surrounded by jungle the spacious dorm has mesh walls for fresh air and to admire the view, the cooked breakfast was excellent, as was the free shuttle to sepilok attractions and the helpful and friendly staff. My only suggestion is to install a bug zapper in restaurant and dorm for the mozzies. Highly recommended

Location a few minutes walk to a lovely beach, 7 well falls and cablecar was great, access to hotel shuttle to nearby 5 star resort pool was good, staff tired to help but you cant make ongoing reservations from here for bus or ferry, so you need to do it before you come or take potluck when you depart. Dorm is located in Oriental village garden/ponds/shopping complex which is lovely setting, but it takes a bit of getting used to huge 30 bed dorm, but beds and towels are extra big and comfy.

an excellent hostel, very helpful staff, breakfast included but no hot water in the morning was the only drawback and its a bit far out of town if you dont have a car
