The 23 of us from the 0830 Choir of the Church of St. Thomas More Subang Jaya descended on Borneo Backpackers on the night of 29 May 2013 and stayed til 2 June 2013. It is located right in the middle of town, within walking distance of Gaya Street where there is plenty of shopping, entertainment and food, and some other places of interest e.g. Anderson Clock Tower, Signal Hill Observatory Platform. The rooms were fine with bunk beds in the dorm rooms and double beds in the single rooms. The rooms are air-conditioned, clean and bed bug free. Down side is the hostel is located close to the road and light sleepers will have a hard time due to the noise from the street. Toilets and showers are clean but have to be shared as expected in such accommodations. Light breakfast, drinks and beverages are available for a price. Free WiFi provided. Great room rates and definitely recommended for solo travelers or for those looking for a budget stay in KK.
