One of the better options for shacks in Iboih
Olala is extremely popular primarily because of the fantastic restaurant located on the jungle track which acts as the main thoroughfare for backpackers looking for a room.
Bungalows here are much the same as most other bungalows in Iboih, but feel slightly more neat and tidy. The best shacks are down by the water, but are almost always full. Of course, bathrooms are cold water, shacks are made of wood and you don’t get much in the way of luxury.
There are few old huts at the back of the property which share some pretty dire bathrooms. These old huts are rarely used and are a little scary unless you have absolutely no money, in which case you’ll be fist-pumping all the way to the bank.
