      Superior Budget Hotel withand friendly staff”

      Seaview, inexpensive, great good and friendly staff

      We travelled as a group and required a place that sleeps 3 persons which is why we choose the Sea View Sandakan Budget & Backpackers Hotel. I liked the place a lot, it started with the welcome drink and tasty snakes which is very unusual for an budget hotel. The room was clean and had a window that offered some sea view which I liked a lot. We were pleasantly surprised that there was a breakfast included, they served pancakes and coffee or tea which is unusual for this type of hotel. The hotel manager was also very friendly and very helpful to give tips on what to do in Sandakan and the surroundings. She were able to provide some great tours too that allowed us to see wild pygmy elephants and other wildlife. Even the food in the attached restaurant was outstanding and had some unique options that can't be found in any other restaurant in town. All in all it was a fantastic experience and the basic but clean rooms were comfortable and a good value for the money. Therefore, if you look for a budget hotel with a clean and friendly atmosphere do not look further.

      Fantastic staff, best prices on river tours!”

      Attentive, friendly staff, super coool a/c,l clean dorm (all day!), best prices on river tours

      Staying at Sea View pretty much MADE my visit to Sandakan. (As I've since talked with others who booked other Kinabatangan river tours and didn't see HALF what I did) I do believe I owe my gazillion pics of more than a half dozen wild PIGMY ELEPHANTS to Sea View Backpackers Hotel. The price for my 3 day 2 night trip was far less than other tours, and the owner of Sea View even wrangled me a private room at the lodge for no additional single supplement. The rest of the staff too, was most helpful and friendly. The bountiful dish of deep fried bananas and tea upon arrival is a very nice touch, and the free breakfast crepe with palm sugar syrup and coffee/tea was most welcome (extra crepes, must 1 ringgit!) The Lemon Grass Cafe on the 3rd floor has a host of good eats at most reasonable prices including Anna's divine Pumpkin Curry and her huge desert crepe with Nutella and ice cream is not to be missed!

      Acceptable in Sandakan ”

      I stayed in Sandakan only for 1 night and half day. Sea View Sandakan BB Hotel is close to the beach, weekend market and shopping mall area. They have tour to Kinabatangan river pick up from this hotel. The manager is really friendly and funny. She herself made banana pancake for breakfast for guests. The hotel looks not so morden but quite clean.

      Nice little hostel”

      good staff, nice food and cheap

      Good little hostel with good English speaking staff that are willing to help. In house cooking so you can get nice cheap meal and breakfast is pancake with palm sugar which is very nice. You also get a welcome drink and fried banana which is a great plus for a hostel. There were many plus's to Sea View but Sandakan itself is a let down.
