    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.

    Basic and Cheap”

    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.

    none except housekeeper is helpful

    Changed room 3 times for 4 nights stay. you sleep are with company of cockroaches, ants lizards and flying insects. everything looks old and dirty. toilet flushing system broken/spoiled. every room doesn't even has a cloth hanger. the whole place is dusty and spider webs all over the roof corners. DO NOT STAY THERE!

    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.
