    Our booking was for a high school group who were visiting Borneo on expedition. We stayed at Masada Backpackers for the final 3 nights of our expedition. It was a lovely hostel, very clean and welcoming. The pupils were very happy to have hot showers after trekking in the rainforest! The location was great for us as it was close to the airport bus and we could easily walk to the markets and Jesselton Point for a trip to the TAR Islands. Thanks for having us!
