What we say: 4 stars

Scuba Junkie is a backpacker magnet, and not just because the bright blue building is unmissable. The draw is the bargain accommodation, quality dive centre and Semporna's liveliest bar (you won't be going to bed early). The dorms are decent, with air-con and new mattresses, but lack lockers to keep your stuff safe while out diving. The private rooms are good value and we suggest splurging for the ensuite – the common showers and toilets can get a bit grubby. Whether it's in the bar or in the TV lounge, Scuba Junkie is the best place in Semporna to meet people and even the staff will be your friend by the time you leave. Rates include WiFi and a hot breakfast of eggs, toast, fruit and coffee. Scuba Junkie is rightfully popular, so book well in advance. Hopefully you're diving or snorkelling with them to get the 50% room discount. They also operate the excellent Mabul Beach Resort.
