This is my second trip to Bario mainly because of the hospitality shown to me by Stephen and Tine (pronouced Ti-na) on my very first hike in the Kalabit Highlands 18 months ago. Simply put Stephen and Tine have made JBD a lovely cosy stay with their careful attentiveness and willingness to share the wonders of the Kelabit highlands with... More

Take some good books and a pair of wailking-shoes (and of course a lot of time) and you won't regret going to Bario and meet Steven and his lovely Danish wife Tine (and ofcourse son Noah) We still are talking about you guys!

My wife and I stayed with Tine and Stephen in July 2011 (sorry, forgot to post this review before). Of our 5 weeks in Sarawak and Sabah this was the most pleasant accommodation. It's a bit like being welcomed into someone's home. Jungle Blues Dream is all about them and what lovely people are they! Stephen showed us around the... More

Though I was alone on this trip, I never once felt that I was alone. Stephen and Tine were gracious hosts and the new friends I met in the highland welcomed me like an old friend into their homes. I was so inspired and fascinated by the numourous art pieces at the homestay and so happy for Stephen's success. The... More

Tine and Stephen are warm and friendly hosts, with great senses of humor, and the most incredibly tasty cooking. At jungle blues you will experience beautiful views, the sweet calm of silence, and lots of time to rest, hike, paint, write... or whatever suits your fancy in the quaint village of Bario.

We stayed at JBD for several nights. Very idyllic setting overlooking rice fields. Stephan and Tine were very friendly and accommodating, giving sensible advice on hikes and walking routes. The food was great (the wild boar stew superb) and the conversations interesting. Highly recommend staying here!

I travelled alone to Bario at a time where not a lot of fellow travellers were around and had second thoughts about maybe being lonely in Bario. But I found the right Homestay with Tine & Stephen. They are most welcoming, friendly and helpful. The meals were excellent and we all ate together in the evening and chatted. They were... More

The hostel is simple, there are only few rooms with shared bathroom (note that you will not find any ensuite room in Bario). Note also that room walls are made of thin wood... (limited privacy). However the value for money is very good. There is a beautiful view from the dinning room. We had a great experience with the owner... More

I love the early morning mist and views and the nightly dinner chats. We had a wonderful and restful stay with very friendly and helpful hosts Tine and Stephen. Stephen and Tine cook lovely Bario food freshly obtained. My favourite is their Apple pie presented with KudukKuduk flowers and twine from plants. A peaceful place to recharge your "batteries". Youll... More

Junglebluesdream exceeded my expectation. It is clean, cozy, comfortable and is in a convenient location in Bario. But most of all, the owners (Stephen and Tine) made my stay so much more memorable due to their warmth, their gracious hospitality and the lovely homemade dishes (topped with garnishings from the garden). The rooms are spacious with a common area provided,... More
