    Ok stay, nice idea but cleanliness needs improving”

    Staff are very friendly and the place is in a really good location. Price is cheap for the area, but overall it was not good value for money. The place is basically hostel beds with a curtain around a couple of beds together. There was hot water in the shower and a microwave, kettle and fridge in the kitchen. Cinema room was nice to chill in and had a nice selection of dvds. Cleanliness was very poor at the hostel. Kitchen stank awful and there was rotting food in the fridge and a bin that hadn't been emptied for a week. Staff did clean toilets very thoroughly, but neglected the showers which were filled with rubbish from previous guests. Ac was on way too cold at night and there were lots of mosquitos in the large room. Wifi did not work during our stay and we were informed it could not be fixed until after the weekend. Place was ok, but needs a good scrub!!

    Very good place to rest if you want to hike Mount Santubong”

    About only 600 metre from Mount Santubong starting point. Hostel located just right behind the beach, also 7E just right beside the hostel. I like the bunk concept & I got my own huge space divided by curtain. Just 1 comment, if feels a bit warm/stuffy when sleep at night.

    Chill Space”

    The only budget accommodation in Damai with clean space and great facilities. Only issue is the AC wasn't cold enough. And would be great if the pantry can be closed off from the main dorm because sometimes in the middle of the night people using the microwave makes the whole dorm smell. Otherwise really friendly staff and innovative digital key system.

    I think they should only put on the bedsheet when there is a customer. maybe the bedsheets are left on the bed for too long with no maintenance or cover, they made 6 out of 9 in our group have rashes on skin on the next morning. other than that, everything is perfect. can the hotel owner read my review here? i wonder.

    Mediocre ”

    The hostel itself wasn’t too bad, 1 issue the back door was just a metal open gate in the toilet/ shower area so bugs/ cats can get in bite you (the bugs) just like they dead me. There were also lots of ants on the headboard. However they had a good cinema style room to relax in which came in handy when we booked too many nights. Location, stay 1 night max! There’s nothing to do there even just an after noon is enough!!

    Excellent location for damai beach”

    The hostel is excellently located, just around the corner from the beach and in the middle of all the shops and 7/11 shop. When I was there the area was really quiet, as well was the hostel. The hostel is very open, but I had the one bed area so If you close curtain its fine. There is enough space to change. The bed area, toilet and shower were pretty clean. Movieroom is great! Since it was so quiet in the area I do think the price is high, and there was not much to do. The Escobar is a nice and cheaper option for getting good food and having a good view!

    It has everything you need. Right in front of Sarawak Cultural Village. Beside the beach. Close to a swimming pool. Very friendly and apologetic staff. The aircond needs to be fixed. Quite hot in the afternoons. Cooling in the night. TIP:- Go into the TV room for the best aircond.

    Great hostel in the perfect location”

    BB bunkers is a great hostel! You have a great beach, cultural village and hiking options all within 5-10 min walking distance. There is also a 7-11 right next door and a cheap food court in the complex. The hostel it self was very clean, fairly quiet (there were only 4-7 other guests there) and the staff helpful. Note that the beds are not very private - all open and glass door to the outside- but you can drag curtains around to get privacy. Also the showers are pretty open, hard to go there and change clothes without the chance of someone to walk in on you. The other shower/toilet area was much better. The wifi was a bit spotty, and they do not offer free towels (10 ringgit per towel). The movie room was so much appreciated after many weeks of traveling (felt like a cozy evening movie at home). Remember to bring enough cash with you to the area because there is no ATM and almost everyone only takes cash (not the hostel though..) All in all a great hostel and highly reccomended.
