Perfect if your staying in Sandakan for a few days. Its right next to a shopping mall and the sea front. Although not much to do in Sandakan, this hostel provides info and help with anything you need. Room is clean and wifi strong. Ensuite available. The cafe on the third floor serves a great pumpkin curry from fresh

Really good hostel! The owner was like a mother for us! She really wants your stay to be perfect! I would highly recommend the mangroves and fireflies tour - it was awesome! Looking forward to come back one day!

Stayed here before going on a tour, we extended for the night after our tour finished and were allowed to keep our backpacks in storage. Staff are wonderfully welcomming and friendly.


We spent such a good time in that hostel, the staff is wonderful, abdul rasak was our guide for a few trips, he is very friendly from the beginner, he suggest us where eating drinking how to get buses and everything.. Nabistul as well she is so friendly and helpfull, when we arrivede she offered to us tea with banana fried, she give to me a massage for free cos i was sick and we enjoyed with her the night in the living room singing and playing guitar with other people! She loves music!!
