Spacious room with aircon and fan and really friendly and helpful staff”
Stayed here for 4 nights, 2 nights either side of a 2n3d jungle trek. There was no problem to leave my big pack in the hostel while I was on the trek. The staff are really helpful and the breakfast is a nice bonus. The showers are hot and clean. The hostel is also located directly above a 7/11 so really handy if you need a snack or drink. It’s also really central to the shopping mall, market and waterfront restaurants.

Nice breakfast, friendly staffs, average rooms but the toilet doesn't have water hose. Tissue paper is to cater western visitors, should have water hose for locals

I booked a single room, but ended up with a triple room all to myself, which is a bonus. Very clean and quiet. Great for one night stay. The only thing is that there is no table or chair in the room to put your stuff on.

Highly recommended”
This is an extremely fine hostel, you get a clean, spacious room (we had a private double), towels and a free Wi-Fi. There are four showers and four toilets, so you won't mind a room doesn't have them. It is located in the center of Sandakan, within a walking distance from anywhere you would like to get to, staff will answer all questions and point the best location for your need.

Ray and the other staff are both friendly and helpful. The rooms are basic but clean and tidy. The A/C works a treat and combined with the fan makes for a cool stay. Handy for the shops and food, (try the waterfront cafes just down the street). We used the place twice as a 'stop over' between trips. Thoroughly recommend this place.

Lovely big light room with good aircon. Despite being next to reception, it was still quiet. Had to walk through an office to get to the bathrooms which was strange (especially when people were sitting there working and you were still in your pjs!). Breakfast is scrambled egg or pancake and toast with free tea and coffee throughout the day. Staff polite and helpful, although they told us Turtle Island was fully booked until August yet we had no problem organising through an agent down the road! Close to a mall and seafront restaurants but very little to do in the town itself.

The staff are so very friendly and helpful here. We had a double room which was clean and spacious. Free water, tea and coffee, and breakfast is included. Our room was right next to reception and kitchen so was quite noisy during the night especially when the door bell kept ringing. We enjoyed our stay here.

Warning: Safety and Cleanliness Issues”
Hostel takes in local transient guest (e.g. bus drivers, late party goers) raising safety issues for travelers as these tend to come in very late at night (sometimes intoxicated) and there are no lockers in rooms. Beds are also in a sorry state and smell of sweat.

We were greeted by the staff and shown all the amenities of the guest house the moment we stepped in. Though the facilities were basic, they are very well maintained and the guests would definitely appreciate it. Location is awesome, right at the heart of the town. No issues wondering at night here.
