    Great hostel, great location, great atmosphere (do not listen to naysayers below). They had TV so I could watch basketball finals. They are right next to the beach where everyone departs to watch Whale Sharks. Our boat was the first one out! The staff is super friendly. They even helped me figure out where to go next.

    Sharky Hostel is located right next to the Oslob Whale Shark Center, if you are planning to go Whale Shark Watching this is a great spot to spend the night. The staff was very helpful and kind with us.

    Main reason to stay here: I was literally the first person to get in the water with the whale sharks and got to see them before it started to get cloudy with their breakfast and tourists struggling to swim (though the serenity was short lived). Otherwise everything was decent: showers, lockers, fans, etc.

    Perfect stop over just before the whale shark tour. Private huts are simple but comfy, good place to get your head down before the tour. Perfect location- we were second boat out

    This hostel is very basic. Showers don’t really work and no WiFi. The rooms are really cute but there is absolutely no atmosphere here. The best thing about this place is how great the staff are so make sure you’re the first boat out to see the whale sharks!!! You couldn’t be any closer to the port and literally just walk 20m! Would stay here for the whale sharks but not much else to do other than sumilion island!!

    Very Good

    We only stayed so that we could be first out to see the whale sharks and we definitely are! It was totally worth it! However the hut we stayed in was super cute and stayed nice and cool with the fan provided. Toilets were very clean! Staff were helpful but didn’t really want anything to do with you a majority of the time.

    Do not go, it is horrific. Viewing the whale shark is one of the most shameful experiences of our travels. Didn’t enjoy it at all, shame on us for going. Hundreds of people in the water at once, getting too close to the shark, shouting, screaming etc. Like a fairground or freak show on the beach from 5:30am onwards. Hostel right by the water so it does as it says and gets you in the water ‘first’. Dorm had open roof so bugs/spiders galore. Very basic. No internet. Staff were helpful to be fair.

    Perfect location I was the first one in the water. Apart from this the room and bathroom was dirty and no atmosphere at all.

    Pros: offers probably one of the best whale shark tour Cons: No Wi-Fi, staff refused to acknowledge one of our bookings, the room was infested with cockroaches, had a booking for two days but they gave away our bed to another customer after the first day, no private bathrooms with the private room, the bathrooms were in a poor condition too, the private rooms are extremely small, better to opt for a dorm bed if absolutely need to stay here.
