Complete with swimming pool
This is Brunei's only youth hostel, designed more for school groups than for backpackers. Dorm beds consisting of 2 bunk beds per room are B$10/night, making it the cheapest sleep in town. There's also a swimming pool which is worth its weight in gold and only costs B$1 per dip. Male and female sleeping quarters are separated, so this can be an inconvenience for couples. The location, however, is very convenient as it is close to downtown BSB. The shared bathroom facilities are OK but a high percentage of the showers didn't work.
Unique Quality: Swimming pool!!!!!!

A Cheap (& Clean) Hostel
This is a great place to stay. The dorm rooms are cheap & clean, and there is a bathroom just across the hall. The men & women are strictly segregated, but there are plenty of places outside to sit with a friend.
What I loved is that children & their parents come here for classes and swimming, so you really get to meet some local people. Plus the swimming pool is very nice in the hot, humid weather!
Unique Quality: If you get here and no one is around just take a bed and pay later. The warden should come at some point to collect money and give you tips on where to go and answer any other questions you may have.
Directions: You can just ask anyone where the hostel or youth center is and they will point you in the right direction.

Brunei's only youth hostel
This is Brunei's only budget accomodation option. Although spartan without hot water, it is great value for the money and is centrally located in the capital BSB.
There has been issues raised with the office hours and the dodginess of the warden, but I have not met anyone who has had trouble getting a bed. If noone is at the desk, simply come back later, the warden is usually back by 2pm. Dorms are segregated 4 person bunks, but clean and air conditioned.
Coming from the airport on a purple bus you can actually get off right by the hostel.
Unique Quality: There is a pool for B$1 available for use, the Royal Regalia Museum is right across the street,
You can walk to
tourist centre/post office 2 min,
B$1/hour interent at the Jubilee Hotel 2 min, Night Market for cheap food 5 min,
town centre 5 min,
Omar Ali Mosque 5 min,
Ask the warden about arranging tours to Jerudong Amusement Park for B$12
A night at the hostel will run you B$10 payable in advance in cash, if noone is around drop your luggage and come back later
Directions: you cant miss this big red brick building, Bandar is a small place, and everyone will happily point you in the direction of the youth centre.
