Had to stay here for two nights stuck in smelly Semporna (chose a dive shop based here, error, should've gone to Mabul). Very basic, large dorms, wooden sheds kind of, but big and airy and appeared pretty clean, although some mattresses looked pretty grubby. One of them places you just gotta get your head down and remember you are not staying long. Best option is to stay on Mabul island and spend as little time in Semporna as possible.
There is also a horrible 'aquarium' - that is what they call it - you get a free ticket, it brought tears to my eyes, really massive fish of all kinds netted into very small areas. They have basically wrapped nets around the wooden 'jetty' to hem in an area of the ocean and have huge fish trapped in there. really horrible to see.
