We stayed in Step In 3 times during out time in Borneo. We didin’t have to consider changing guesthouse. Service is great, just ask Ray or anybody else the know how to make stuff happen. Highly recommended!
~ Ville & Anne-Fin (22 Dec 2014)

Had a really good stay at step in lodge before even arriving i emailed with ray, and he was very helpful which also was the case when we arrived. So many helpful and informative guides we really felt at home at this place. When we saw Borneo we went back to step in for relaxing and had another nice chat with the staff. Really recommend this place. Warm and welcoming.

They have made desired trips and cultural experiences possible for a budget price and have supported me where necessary . the hostel has been great and relaxed and the coffee is one in a million. Cheers to Ray who has been the perfect host.

Dear fellow explores, we’re been here on a school trip and the Lodge has been very accommodating of 16 mad teenagers. The location is great because there is good shopping and huge variety of eateries nearby. The breakfast is simple but good. Everything is really well maintained in terms of cleanliness ect. Which was just lovely after a 3 days of squatting in the jungle. Enjoy your travels dearest reader!

~ BIFS, Korea (30 Mar 2013)

Very welcomed into the Step in Lodge after a long and tiring journey back from Mantanani Island. Was greeted by a friendly face who remembered us from when we had booked and were lucky enough to be put in our own private dorm room. Nicest hostel we’ve stayed in kk so far, mostly because of friendly staff that are always willing to help or just have a chat. We’ve found this out after only one night’s stay here, unfortunately it is our only night. Would happily stay for more. Hopefully be back soon.
