Good for a night before you head off diving/snorkeling. No towels provided unless you're in a private room- no exceptions or rental offered. Decent breakfast and centrally located.

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.

They didn't mention about the tourist tax on Agoda and they charged me an additional 80 upon checkin”
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. The stay was unpleasant, the other hotels there does not have this policy which I had to walk-in to another hotel to spend a another 5hours before I can go back to my own room.

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.

Stayed here for 7 nights with my friend. They didn't provide towels. Didn't clean the room during the entire stay. Water dripped from the window so had to endure watery floor and wet room. Nothing to eat for breakfast. Won't stay here in the future. However, some staff were kind.

Stay only if you have no other choice”
Hotel is located near a fish market so expect a really strong smell. There were also children who swarmed my friend and I, harassing us for money while we were checking out so the area doesn't really feel safe. The staff were friendly. The breakfast was on the salty side. Room was clean but feels really cramped.

No tv, no refrigerator, no towel just bed and toilet for more rm100/day is so so expensive. The worst thing there were no water supply in the midnight. In case you have emergency need to go down to level 1 use toilet there. The location is ok near food place but the room faces with fish market.

ok stay ”
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.

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.

Not recommend ”
1. They gave us a room different from what it shown. The room heading to a street instead of sea, where is very noisy even at midnight. 2. Water flow out continually at the washroom which make a lot of noise. But they only fix that after two nights because of the holiday. That means I have to bear the noise during two whole nights. 3. They don’t tidy the room during your stay. You could find many ants everywhere. Pls don’t stay here!

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
