Good value for solo travelers
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.

Excellent value for money
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.

Great
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.

We enjoyed our stay here
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.
