The guidebook is correct about this hostel in Brunei’s capital city. You cannot book online in advance (as of 2010) and patience is certainly required when you turn up asking for a bed for the night as the chap on reception (that is actually looking after the random Olympic sized pool attached to the hostel) isn’t in charge of the hostel bookings! After half hour wait you finally get given a massive bunch of keys to check in to the non-descript dorms. My advice would be don’t come here – not because of the hostel, but because there is nothing to do in BSB other than an expensive speedboat round the waters that surround the main mosque. Dull.
