Stayed for 3 nights, I'm both dorm and stilted hut. Views are amasing over jungle. Can't believe this place is so cheap! Has a chic but minimalist style. Fits perfect in the jungle!
Place is kept really clean and really does feel like a jungle retreat! Dorms are nice with fans and comfy new wooden bunks. Stilted Rooms are lovely. Worth the extra money with really comfy beds, mosquito nets and air con. But best thing is the view. Even from the shower!
Perfect base to visit orangutans, an absolute must if you go to borneo! Free shuttle over, only 2 minute drive .They also arrange visits to probiscus sanctuary much cheaper than other advertised tours!
Food is really nice and great value, rm12 for meal. Breakfast is much better than your average hostel with choice of egg and sausage!
My tip is don't bother with sandakan, not very nice and nothing there. Only rm40 if arrange transport from hostel if u want to pick up supplies or use atm (only reasons to visit sandakan!)
Had a great stay. Staff helped us with transport and recommended other places to stay too.
