    5-7 minute drive from the airport (we rented a car (highly suggest that you do, we rarely saw a bus nor people walking around)). There’s security lock in every entrance apart from your room’s and the locker. Personal check-in steps was easy to follow (let them know ahead of time that you’ll arrive after 5pm so they can email you the password of the door). The receptionist was very accommodating and gives informative suggestions and facts about Brunei. I’d recommend staying here :)

    I visited during the low season, but it was an excellent visit. I had a whole room to myself. The staff was very friendly. The hostel isn't near a whole lot, but it is centrally located between some of the main areas I wanted to see. I would stay here again if given the opportunity.

    Andrew at the front desk who I believe is the Owner was WONDERFUL TO ME. He explains that area where the hostel is and was very professional and friendly and helpful. The hostel is clean, and well located. The bus from the city stops about a one minute walk away. The room was clean and the bed linens and mattress very comfortable. The price is very fair and it’s a very nice place to stay. Thank you very much Andrew for taking care of me! Andy from San Francisco Ca. USA

    Great hostel, well located and with a really nice host. There isn't too much atmosphere depending on your experiences but we still met some nice travellers and had a great chat with our host. I would recommend this place.

    Staff were friendly and helpful. Room was good, enough showers and bath. Basic breakfast. It’s close to a bus stop that will take you to town center. Near to hostel is a supermarket, bakery and many restaurants.

    Good stay for a night. This is a bit outside the city centre but there is a bus stop right outside the hostel which was useful. Staff were friendly and gave us tips for stuff to do.

    Self checkin with no security. Hostel faces main road and anyone can access the hostel easily as access code is posted on the main door. Even though Brunei is considered safe, a tourist doesn’t know this and cannot take stuff for granted. It is very isolating as there’s no staff around to ask questions, so you lose a lot of time. When staff is around they are super helpful and friendly.

    I am sad to write a bad review, considering how kind and apologetic the front desk lady was (even offered me a free ride to airport!) due to the problems below: 1. BEDBUGS. We were moved to another room after discovering bedbugs. Still bedbugs in the new room! There may be an infestation in the upstairs rooms. 2. LOCKED LOBBY. Another guest kept locking the lobby door contrary to instructions. This locked us out of our lockers, water, laundry, etc. This shameless guest should have been removed.
