Enjoyable stay”

I stayed at this hostel 4 days whilst my partner went diving in Mabul. I wasn't so keen on Semporna itself so I actually stayed inside most of the day. The hostel always had a great vibe and I must say the owner was very welcoming and very friendly. Enjoyed the different selection of breakfast each morning with coffee or tea. Only thing I would say is the floor could do with a little vacuum, although the cleaner was always cleaning you would find quite a bit of dust and hair on the floor which would stick to your feet as shoes weren't allowed to be worn. Apart from that a really enjoyable stay.

Close to seafood restaurants, watson, guardians, giants, seafood markets, boats to all islands and more ... but this hotel we can't hang out until late at night. 12pm should enter the hotel and cannot leave outside of that hour. Food and drinks from outside should not be taken in. The hotel prefers cleanliness...i love semporna😍

Clean, efficient and central location”

Really enjoyed my stay here. The Inn/hostel/hotel, was clean with a big comfortable communal area. The staff were really helpful. They were happy to help with an extra bed for my children, organising day trips and taxi's to the airport. It felt really comfortable and friendly here, for a family too (we had a private room with an attached bathroom), but the shared dormitory area looked really nice too, with lots of room for bags etc.

Arranged Airport transfer from Tawau Airport. Very reasonably priced. Was delayed in checking in because previous guest have not checked out and was missing. Offered a no view room after 3 hrs. Was refunded the difference. Inn was very clean, free wifi but slow. Very basic breakfast included. After a chat with the proprietor, realised the Inn was opened only 2 months ago. Should be a good place to stay after kinks are worked out.

I had booked a pricey private room with private bathroom, anticipating some “luxury” after 3 days in a jungle camp. When I checked in, however, I was informed that there was no water in that room until late that night due to some construction in town, but that I could use the dorm shower, which apparently is supplied by their own water tank. I had a bit of a tantrum about paying a high price for a private bathroom that I couldn’t use, and they switched me to a dorm room and refunded some of my money. The dorm room was fine, but the shower was a trickle of tepid water. A huge disappointment compared to what I had been hoping for. The young women at check-in were very nice.

With the same price, i can find a more decent place to spend a night. No TV... No Towel... if you go to Semporna just for diving and spend a night here just to rest, sleep then its ok... My experience, i sleep at another hotel (TD Mutiara Hotel) even i have already paid for a night at Wanderer inn.... it's much much more comfortable.. and guess what... same price

Stay only one night before live on board diving. Facilities are very simple but clean. Staffs are quite nice. I stayed in a private room, it doesn't have window. The dometry does have. Shower water is not very big as I was prepared for this but acceptable. No tower or shampoo so be sure bring your own. Internet is slow in the room so suggest to buy SIM card at the airport beforehand. Breakfast is very simple but the dinning area (public space) is bright and cosy.

Hotel has a 12am midnight policy which I wasn't aware of, I was lock outta my hotel after I went out to take some photos. Had to spend a night on the street which was according to locals not very safe.

New hostel that will hopefully get better with time”

Pros - capsule beds, clean, spacious, good location near dive shops and jetty and bus station, modern, hot showers Cons- noisy! Bar just underneath which played music until late (not great if you're up at 6 for diving), room and thus my clothes smelt fishy (but maybe all hotels near the jetty smell like this?), no door to the room, staff were lovely girls but they were shy and didn't understand my questions like what time is the bus to Sandakan. I had to find out from another hostel. And breakfast was literally only bread and bananas. No toast :(

Nice place to crash and see Semporna or recover from diving”

This is a nice hostel. Great value and location. Some of the staff had a rough exterior, but when I smiled and asked questions, everyone became friendly and helpful. I love the beds with a curtain for privacy and the private outlets inside. The breakfast isn't bad, too. The one criticism that I have is that there is no soap by the bathroom sinks. I asked to use some and it was begrudgingly retrieved for me and then put away again.
