I am glad to be one the first guest of the PBY Hostel in 2014. They are open since last week! Dorm's bed cost only 10 Bruneian Dollars (less than 8 USD) - actually it is cheaper and better than hostels in Kuala Lumpur, Kota Kinabalu (Sabah) or Miri (Sarawak) so I stayed one extra day discovering around the city....

This place is closed. So be prepared to look elsewhere. Pusat belia is actually very nice place to stay in Brunei due to location and price. We really sympathise with a group of girls form UK that arrived there and had to find other place to stay.

This review was for a trip in May 2011. We read about this hostel in the guidebook. We located this hostel and then waited and waited. No one came. After a while, we gave up and left to look for another hotel. We didn't know it would be so expensive in this city, so we scrapped our plans to stay... More

the hostel is part of the youth centre, and priority is given to youths attending programmes or activities at the centre..... useful to check if rooms are available by contacting the supervisor.......see picture... watsapps will do..... he's been in the same job for the past 21 years! beds are decent and clean... esp in view of the price.

Firstly, I felt I am so lucky once I did advance booking. I called the manager to book my bed, he told me send him sms and after that he confirmed by sms too. But on the day I came. The hostel is full, it's Friday and nobody in receptionist. I sent many sms to manager with a hope that... More

The guidebook is correct about this hostel in Brunei’s capital city. You cannot book online in advance (as of 2010) and patience is certainly required when you turn up asking for a bed for the night as the chap on reception (that is actually looking after the random Olympic sized pool attached to the hostel) isn’t in charge of the...
