Super worth at this low agoda price”
Pros : 1. Great location, easy access to food amd Grabcar 2. Clean and comfortable room 3. Superbly friendly staffs 4. Fast internet 5. Great value for money IMHO. Cons : 1. Shared bathroom, other resident left their diving shorts in basin (not hotel's fault). 2. Toilet flush bad quality (staff came up to repair, but spoilt again later, too many people using perhaps? ) Hence the 4 star for facilities 3. Shoplot opposite of hotel plays loud music at night and morning, not advisable for light sleepers (i understand out of owner's control as well,just writing to let others know and be mentally prepared). Soundproof weak, but I'm not asking for 5 star facilities at 1 star price. 😁😁😁

Spacious room. Free tea / coffee, breakfast is toast with kaya / jam. A lot of hair on the floors (should be cleaned more often), but the place was generally clean. Not directly in Sandakan, but connected to Sandakan and Sepilok via bus. Everything you need is nearby.

Our second stay in Prima B&B was just as enjoyable as the first one. This time we went with a private room with ensuite bathroom and for us it was worth the upgrade. The only problem was (again) with the toilet which couldn’t be flushed using the regular button. There must be a nasty toilet-ghost living in the premises that keeps messing it up ;)

Nice hostel close to Sepilok and the airport”
The hostel is close to the new Sandakan bus station, there are several shops and small restaurants close by. Nothing much to see or do here, but that was not a problem for us. The staff is simply amazing, the manager, Peter went out of his was to help us throughout our stay. Really one of the most helpful guy we encountered during our trip! Still on the plus side, you get free drinking water from the dispenser, the private rooms are equipped with AC and the place is usually quiet. The minor problems we had were related to the shared bathrooms. They are a bit rundown and could be a tad bit cleaner. Since our original stay, we came back for one night in a private room with ensuite bath and let me tell you, it’s much better. Go with this option if it suits your plans and budget. Overall a nice place I’d recommend if you’re visiting Sandakan for the orangutans.

Fast Internet”
Fast internet speed and good location (near to bank, eateries, laundry self-service shops, convenience stores) were the top reasons why I continue staying at this place. The shared bathroom is not really tidy - can do better. But the soap was not being replenished and the holder for the shower head and the toilet seat were broken. The wall was quite thin that I was able to hear people chit-chatting from another room. The sound from opposite block was audible but I still could still sleep. The pillows were comfy though; the owner was friendly, and the staffs were polite. Simple breakfast (coffee, tea & bread) and water dispenser were available at the dining room
