A very suitable place to stay for backpackers because it's a very-very basic hostel. The hospitality is good, the food is good. The staff is good. Don't expect too much because you would be disappointed by then. It's a very great place for great experience.

the staff patricia was such great lier, the boss with scar on his vertex is snobbish, and i felt cheated after the stay. in contrast arung hayat i stayed in was much more an honest guy in comparison. better try with other neigboring resort if you absolutely like to try the place.

"A home far From Home" Definitely the best place on mabul. A small friendly dive shop that works around your needs. The whole team make you feel right at home. You become a part of the family and everyone is lovely. The owner, Jeff, is very friendly, welcoming, hilarious, energetic and completely crazy.

Scuba Jeff bills himself as a budget place, and the facilities definitely live up to that promise, but if you check around the island you will discover that the prices do not! Running water for showers etc (cold water only, but that's expected) were only available for a few hours each day, so often you come back from the water... More

After traveling around in southeast asia for 4 months, my girlfriend and I finished of here. Mabul is a beautiful place with amazing diving (especially Sipandan). Although Scuba Jeff was the worst place imaginable. When we first came there they said they were fully booked, although we had already booked and paid for the room. After they realized we were...

Sorry my review is long overdue. I was actually there in July early part of it. To be honest initially I read mixed reviews of the place. I wasn't sure if I had made the right choice or not. But when I arrived at the dive shop Jeff was there, he was extremely friendly treated us just like family made... More

I am sceptical if I will enjoy staying at Scuba Jeff due to the backpack condition but it turns out to be memorable. The amenities may have been basic but the service, the people was intimate. They are attentive to our needs, understand our limitation particularly during diving. If you can go basic, I guess this is the place for... More
