TRUST ME YOU DON'T WANT TO GO HERE The receptionist (when here) is on drugs an speaks very little English. The "reception" stinks like wet cat. The whole place is in bad shape. There's no control for the aircondition (we have asked two times) and it makes A LOT of noise. It takes a long time to take a shower because of very little water supply. Our main light in the room didn't function. The Inn is next to a disco club so even with earplugs it's LOUD. Next to the entrance sits locals and prostitutes. Yes, you get a bed to sleep in. Yes you will have a roof over your head. In NO way will we recommend staying here.

The staircase is very dirty. The room is quiet wide but not clean. Mr. Rim is a good person who helped us to sweep the floor. the other staff are not that helpful. When I ask Some toilet paper They simply said no but Mr. Rim gave us in the end.

Friendly staff, located near bus stops, internet access
Ribena Inn offers a clean basically furnished room close to the town and bus stops. The staff are friendly and helpful. Unfortunately, the hotel is opposite a karaoke club and is very noisy at night. The first two floors of the building are very run down and are off-putting. There is no lift. The third floor (where the rooms are located) is newly renovated and clean. The street in which the inn is located is scruffy.

Hotel not bad but not worth price - very noisy”
Ok rooms, hot shower & good staff
Hotel wasn't bad by all accounts but wasn't really worth the price. Rooms were ok, clean enough (by backpackers standards) and big enough bed for 2 people. Bathroom wasn't fantastic - floor flooded after shower, window wouldn't fully shut. The BIGGEST flaw about this hotel was the noise. Across the road was a karaoke bar that began late afternoon and remained in full flow until the early hours of the morning. The singing can only be described at best as the long, slow and painful death of a cat being strangled. It seems that the frequenters of this particular karaoke bar believe that the volume at which they wailed would directly improve their singing quality. To which I can personally testify, is not the case. After having stayed 3 nights at the hotel I wouldn't return - this also being due to the location. There are other hostels closer to the centre.

Basic clean and spacious room”
Inexpensive, down town location, clean
Basic hotel which was sufficient for us since we don't need facilities and breakfast. Our room is rather spacious. TV channels are really limited. Although no lift is equiped in this hotel, the staff is very helpful to carry our bags to the room. Municipal parking spot is available in front of the hotel. Do take note if there is any event held at Padang Bandaran Sandakan which is just at the end of the road, it can be difficult to drive in.
