Nice place to crash and see Semporna or recover from diving”
This is a nice hostel. Great value and location. Some of the staff had a rough exterior, but when I smiled and asked questions, everyone became friendly and helpful. I love the beds with a curtain for privacy and the private outlets inside. The breakfast isn't bad, too. The one criticism that I have is that there is no soap by the bathroom sinks. I asked to use some and it was begrudgingly retrieved for me and then put away again.

Stayed here for 7 nights with my friend. They didn't provide towels. Didn't clean the room during the entire stay. Water dripped from the window so had to endure watery floor and wet room. Nothing to eat for breakfast. Won't stay here in the future. However, some staff were kind.

Stay only if you have no other choice”
Hotel is located near a fish market so expect a really strong smell. There were also children who swarmed my friend and I, harassing us for money while we were checking out so the area doesn't really feel safe. The staff were friendly. The breakfast was on the salty side. Room was clean but feels really cramped.

Not value for your money if stay at studio room”
No tv, no refrigerator, no towel just bed and toilet for more rm100/day is so so expensive. The worst thing there were no water supply in the midnight. In case you have emergency need to go down to level 1 use toilet there. The location is ok near food place but the room faces with fish market.

With the same price, i can find a more decent place to spend a night. No TV... No Towel... if you go to Semporna just for diving and spend a night here just to rest, sleep then its ok... My experience, i sleep at another hotel (TD Mutiara Hotel) even i have already paid for a night at Wanderer inn.... it's much much more comfortable.. and guess what... same price

This was a convenient hostel as it was near the jetty however the smell of the fish market was way to strong for me! They have the windows wide open so the room smells of fish all day! Also I was woken up at 5am but lots of ladies chatting away!

Not recommend ”
1. They gave us a room different from what it shown. The room heading to a street instead of sea, where is very noisy even at midnight. 2. Water flow out continually at the washroom which make a lot of noise. But they only fix that after two nights because of the holiday. That means I have to bear the noise during two whole nights. 3. They don’t tidy the room during your stay. You could find many ants everywhere. Pls don’t stay here!

Clean, efficient and central location”
Really enjoyed my stay here. The Inn/hostel/hotel, was clean with a big comfortable communal area. The staff were really helpful. They were happy to help with an extra bed for my children, organising day trips and taxi's to the airport. It felt really comfortable and friendly here, for a family too (we had a private room with an attached bathroom), but the shared dormitory area looked really nice too, with lots of room for bags etc.
