Free airport pick-up
One of the many hostels at Australia Place, the main reason to choose Borneo Backpackers is the free airport pick-up if you book a private room for two nights or more.
Other than that, we like the homey vibe (perhaps a little too homey when you find a cat in the bathroom) and the common spaces – a TV lounge, guest computers, reading nooks, a full kitchen and a rooftop garden perfect for chatting with dorm-mates over a beer. The dorms have sturdy wooden bunk beds and the private rooms, though spartanly furnished, are a good deal. Rates include WiFi, a simple breakfast and filtered drinking water – it's an extra five ringgit for a towel.
