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.

Not so good”
Location is very good, but the rest is not. The facilites are old and not very well maintaned, the room was not so clean. But the worst part is the kitchen. Very dirty, we had breakfast included in the room rate, but have not been so brave to try it. We wanted to stay here for two nights, but changed our mind and spent only one and moved to another hotel.

You get what you pay for. But OK budget room, with A/C, wifi didnt really work, pancake for breakfast. You most likely wont meet any traveller there.

New owners?”
Reviews for this hostel were okay if not really good. I had paid for two nights so decided to stay both. It was tolerable. No staff at the reception when I arrived, seemed as though I got the receptionist out of bed at 3pm to show me my room. The room was dark and small with 6 beds ( two bunks and a double mattress ). The floor in the room hadn't been swept, there was a used cigarette under my bed, the sheets looked old and used and there was only two room keys for my room.. So I had to share it with two other people? I don't think that is right. There were no lockers inside the room so I kept my locks on my bag. There was not personal reading light or PowerPoint, instead one to share between everyone. The showers weren't clean and didn't have shower heads. There was a pipe sticking out of the wall with only cold water. All of the walls needed fresh paint or cleaning. The communal area had two couches, one was broken. These also didn't look particularly clean. Breakfast was a pancake and coffee- these were both good! I was disappointed by my stay here and the staff didn't seem to care about the place or the customers. I ended up changing to a hostel around the corner that was almost the same price and the complete oposite to this hostel. I'm a backpacker and not usually picky - as I said it was tolerable. Just be warned and know there are better options in Sandakan.

very poor quality regardless of price”
location as it is across from the central market and not too far to the local bus station
I am an experienced low budget southeast asia traveler, having stayed at over 50 different locations last year. This place rates very close to the bottom, if not the bottom for value and quality. It was very poorly kept, had mold growing in the bathroom, did not provide either toilet paper, towels, or soap, though after complaining towels and toilet paper was given. We were told breakfast started at 8am, which is late for a hostel, but the next morning we were told 830. All staff were still asleep at 8am when we went to the desk. Eventually breakfast of a plain pancake was provided, but the restaurant area stank so badly we couldn't eat there. Dirty dishes were everywhere. Don't know where the smell was coming from in the place. Certainly don't recommend anyone stay there, regardless of the price or location.
