Borneo Hostel is a cheap place with free WiFi -- about the only luxury you'll get here.
The stuffy rooms are spartan with old foam mattresses and scuffed white walls. Bathrooms are surprisingly clean when compared to some others in town and come equipped with Western toilet, although buckets are used for washing instead of a shower. In the scheme of things, it's not a bad choice just off Jalan Jaksa, but bear in mind that it's still aimed at extremely low budgets. Slightly better than the cheapest in Jalan Jaksa.
