I enjoyed my time at this hostel. I had my own room, which was basic with just a bed, but all I needed. I opted for the shared bathroom which I had all to myself for the first few days and was always very clean. The ac worked well in my room also. The common area was great, lots of movies to watch and a nice spot to meet others. There's a small kitchen and there is breakfast of toast and jam in the mornings. I liked that I was able to meet lots of people here but it wasn't a party hostel. Also having a private room for still a cheap price was great. The staff was also very helpful with dinner and sightseeing suggestions. They knew I wanted to go to Sepilok and they told me about others who were going as well so we could share the costs of transportation. I ended up having a great day with them and I am really glad I chose this hostel!
