          Stayed in this hostel a month or two ago - after staying for one night booked another one immediately. The food was the highlight, with Nabastul's lemongrass, coconut and pumpkin curry being the best thing we ate on our trip. Good vibes all round!

          Hello, my name is Nina Kresse and I booked 2 beds in a 16 bed dorm from the 29.5.16 to the 31.5.16. We will arrive in Sandakan at the 29.5.16 at the Airport at 7.45 pm, so is it maybe possible that you pick us up at the Airport? I read that there is no Bus service anymore at this time. thank you, Nina Kresse
