I loved my stay at the hostel very much. Great breakfast and the location is outstanding: Toroko National Park must be one of the most amazing places in the world. The hostel is a bit of a walk uphill from the bus station, but everything else more than compensated for the strenuous walk

My sister and I wanted to share a room but they ran out of rooms with 2 beds. As such, we had to each book a 4-bed room each because each room was gender-specified. Seeing that there was no one else sharing the room/s with us, we decide to stay in the same room. I feel it would have been easier for the staff for us to just share a room instead of assigning different rooms for us.
