Uncle Chang's Backpackers Lodge
Hit or miss accommodations and diving
What we say:
The old adage "you get what you pay for" certainly applies at Uncle Chang's. We stayed in the four-bed fan dorm and found it stuffy during the day and infested with bed bugs at night (check the mattress and the batik fabric on the walls). On the other hand, our dive buddy who stayed in a brand new wooden chalet overlooking the water had a wonderful experience. Diving prices are reasonable at 640 ringgit for a day at Sipadan or 260 ringgit for three dives around Mabul, but many divers (including us) were not impressed with the condition of the equipment or the professionalism of the dive masters. What we did like about Uncle Chang's is the huge dining hall and canteen that's always stocked with ice-cold beer. On weekends there's a bit of a party vibe with the staff doing double-duty as musical entertainment.
