I stayed in room 2 (private room) with 2 queen bed and 1 single bed. The bed is big for 3 of us. Fan's provided. The weather is hot during the day (wont be a big problem coz you're out there almost all day in the park) and cold during night in which we won't turn on the fan. Dina and family were very helpful and friendly. They tried as much as they can to provide the best service. The food supply are halal (as they claimed the food/meat was from Miri in which have been slaughtered), but they have used the utensil to serve/cook pork in which Dina have honestly told us. Hence, she prepared the simple meals (toast and scramble eggs) and serve it in polystyrene box. She cook the eggs in the separate pan from the one she used before. She also plan eagerly to buy a new cooking utensils so that it can be conveniently used for her muslim guest. The private room price is RM35 per head (breakfast included). The shared bathroom is clean and it also being upgraded during my stay, hence there will be more shower room in future. The hostel was very near to the airport, you can either walk or arrange for pick up with Robert/Dina for free. (1-2 minutes drive). It also only 7 minutes walking to the park, but the road will be dark (no lamp post along the road), it is advisable to bring your torchlight if you went back to the hostel at night from th park.
