Clean hostel and comfy beds”
I could already go to my dorm earlier than the actual check-in time. Also good airco in the room. Hostel is very clean and great staff.

Best hostel I've stayed in in Borneo so far!”
I stayed at Harbourside Backpackers for 4 nights in total (2 nights in dorm rooms and 2 nights in my own private double room due to feeling ill). I really enjoyed my stay here and will summarise as follows: Pros: - Good atmosphere and common areas to hang out in. Plenty of opportunities to meet others through staying in dorms and/or in the common areas themselves. A popular hostel with a nice social vibe. - Great location. Right in the centre of Sandakan, across the road from Harbour Mall where McDonald's, Watsons etc can be found. - Secure. You have to push a button and wait at the entrance before you are allowed in. - Clean. Guests have to leave their shoes on a rack outside the reception area. All guest rooms, as well as the bathrooms, were spotlessly clean during my stay. - Good number of showers and toilets. - All staff were friendly and helpful. Cons: - WiFi patchy and not always reliable. - Blankets in dorms too thin for room temperature.

Breakfast was basic but good. The location could not be any better. The main common area is really nice and is used by the hostel guests. The internet could be improved however. I would definitely return.
