We actually ended up staying about 8 nights with gaps in between as we explored the surrounding places (Kinabatangan river, turtle island, sepilok etc) which were all easy to get to. The friendliest staff make you feel so at home, great eggs for breakfast. Perfectly clean rooms

This is an extremely fine hostel, you get a clean, spacious room, towels and a free Wi-Fi. There are four showers and four toilets, so you won't mind a room doesn't have them. It is located in the center of Sandakan, within a walking distance from anywhere you would like to get

"don't go into a dorm. If you're on a low budget go down the road to Harbourside BPs - they have nice dorms."
"I had a dorm room to myself which was awesome! It was ery quiet and dark (no windows) but there was a ventilation fan which kept the room fresh."
