  • We experienced an outstanding service from the staff at the hostel, far exceeding our expectations. The location was excellent, very close to the busstations, very central and close to the waterfront. We even had seaview from our room (most rooms probably don´t though). The price was quite low. However, there wasn´t a lot of activity in the common room, and you have to pay for use of their computers with internet.

  • The staff was really nice here. They helped me book a tour and the night worker was really fun to talk to. I think that Sandakan doesn't really have much to do. I guess it's just a good place to head off on some jungle trips. There isn't much around town, but this hostel is close to the water and restaurants.
