The owner is extremely friendly and helpful. Even the price is one of the cheapest in Semporna this hostel is really homey and completed in many ways. The building seems quite old but they keep cleanliness and make an effort to be a cozy place for their guests. They provide airport pickup only 25Rm per person one way. Also it... More

For me, is under-priced backpacker hostel, they provide breakfast, drinking water, coffee, tea FOC and each bunk bed with locker,bedside light, plug in power adapter, and some basic bath/tooth brushing utensils. Quiet environment, good choice if you want piece of quiet. Restaurants, fast food... More

We had to stay a night in Semporna and did a little research, this hostel had really good reviews. It lived up to my expectation! Getting there was a little tricky, as it's a new place and our taxi driver wasn't sure of the location. It's not very well marked from the street, you can spot it when you are... More

This was a very cute hostel. The owner was very nice to us, but she didn't speak English, so we had some troubles communicating. However, we could talk to her daughter, who knew english, on phone. The hostel is very good, but we did not like the neighbourhood. It didn't feel safe and we would recommend people to stay at... More

Having been to Semporna, Malaysia before, I wanted to stay in the town not at one of the Island lodges. I was traveling without my wife and wanted the freedom to wander not knowing how busy the resorts on Mabul would be. I had read the reviews from previous travelers about Atine Backpackers was curious. When you see so many... More
