This hostel was super basic but it was extremely clean and the staff were very friendly and helpful.
Breakfast was included toast, coffee and eggs. There was a lounge area. Access to computers and free WiFi.
Lovely little hostel. Nice sized dorm room with comfy beds. Lockers provided for smaller items. Toilets and showers were always clean and worked well. Nice self-service breakfast every morning. Good living area with sofas and TV, but not a lot of atmosphere while we were...More
It is very well located nearby the local market. The staff is super friendly and helpful and also offer pick-up services. However, the single room was without window and the bed looked already quite old. Also for breakfast they didn't offer a lot.
Super clean, comfy bed, very friendly staff, amazing location, good breakfast (you can cook your own eggs, good coffee and avocados avaliable). Offer good tours at decent prices as well. Had a dorm room to myself. Would recommend 100%
This hostel is spotlessly clean with very helpful staff. Sandakan is navigatable on foot and walking distance to the bus stops for sepilok and to see the proboscis monkeys aswell. It's a yes from me harbour side backpackers
