Arguably one of the cheapest hotel you can find anywhere in the region though you would have to be prepared to wait for the person in charge to let you in and give you the key! Anyway, the location is good as it is within a 10 min walk to town and they do have a small eatery downstairs where... More

If the beds would be better and the bathrooms better cleaned then this place would be a four star for sure. The dorms are with 4 beds but the beds are so old that they move a lot and you always think that they might collapse everytime you move. The bathrooms could be cleaned more often. Apart from that the... More

Location is good, easy to go to everywhere, there is a bus station nearby and water village is very close from the hostel! Staffs are very funny and helpful but not easy to find them :( The public area is very comfortable, room with A/C and the bed is big enough!! Highly recommend!!

Positive: only 10 dollar a night, every traveler gets his private dorm, decent WIFI, a swimming pool next door for only 1 dollar, good location & AC in the rooms. If you are lucky and finally meet someone of the staff, you‘ll find out that they are very nice. Cons: 8 travelers and I waited an entire day before someone... More

Its the cheapest accomodation we could find in the city. Its only 5 min walk to the center of the city, and maybe 10 min to the riverfront, where you can catch boattaxis to the floating village. Men and women are seperated in each their section of the hostel, it's dormitrys and they're okay -although the bedsheets weren't changed after... More

This Youth hostel is on the main road of BSB and close to the town, night market, and the morning market as well. It is close to many tourist attractions too. At B$10.00/person/nt you get a clean room, with a single bed in a bunk bed, air conditioning, and clean bathroom with toilet paper, but clod showers only. The dorms... More

I went to Brunei back in October and stayed in BSB but was forced to stay in another hostel as this place was shut. However, was back there again at the beginning of April and found... More

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....
