We went here as it seems reasonable and nice from their website. After lugging our backpacks through town we found it, it has a very bad sign in the staircase next to the bowling-place. The place smelled of gas, and had a terrible vibe. This older guy came over and asked what we wanted, we asked if they had a... More

after searching for a while i found the place. Its above a poolbar. The stairs were dirty and when entering the house, it was dirty as well. You are practically living with a dirty family in their house. The restroom has to be the most disgusting. Nobody else was staying there. Unfortunately I paid for 2 nights there. And after... More

I was in Labuan on 7 May and found to my surprised that Uncle Jack has closed down. I understood that the owner had some business difficulties and had to close down his operation. Considering the time of the day that I arrived, on a rainy 4 pm afternoon, there were no other cheaper alternatives other than the Melati Inn,... More

Well, been here now for 4 days...... can certainly say, the hospitality & friendliness is exceptional of Uncle JACK (this is how, he is known as with affection). The price is just too reasonable. He takes care of everything from breakfast to bed, from your outdoor trips to everything..... he rents out scooter/vans too at a very economic rate. I... More

Labuan is a great place to spend two days exploring between Brunei & Sabah. We stayed I think 2 nights and had 3 full days here- there were only a couple of other guests so very quiet. Jack was sleeping when we arrived but seemed like a very nice and trusting guy. We rented motorbikes from him and explored on... More

The great thing about Uncle Jacks, is Jack! He goes out of his way to make one's stay memorable. From gathering everyone together for a meal, to huge free breakfasts that vary from day to day. I'd have to say one of the best hostels I've stayed at

Stayed for just one night before moving onto the equally excellent homestay program in Labuan. We had a small but comfy fan room, which was ok for 42RM. Jack himself is a really nice guy, we hired a motorbike from him and toured the island. He told us everywhere we had to go, including the best place to get satay... More

Echoing other reviews, we originally only planned to stay for one night but ended up staying for three and this was due largely to Uncle Jack. He is bursting with energy, enthusiasm and local knowledge and it is a pleasure to be around. During our time at Uncle Jacks he arranged a boat trip to a deserted island for us... More
