          Hello, my name is Nina Kresse and I booked 2 beds in a 16 bed dorm from the 29.5.16 to the 31.5.16. We will arrive in Sandakan at the 29.5.16 at the Airport at 7.45 pm, so is it maybe possible that you pick us up at the Airport? I read that there is no Bus service anymore at this time. thank you, Nina Kresse
