Average rooms, fun rooftop terrace
Lot 108, 1st Floor, Block SH-11, Sandakan Harbour Square, Sandakan T: (089) 221 104
Cheap and centrally located, you could do worse than a night at Sandakan Backpackers but you could also do a lot better.
The rooms are gloomy and spartanly furnished with a couple beds and choice of fan or air-con. The whole hostel seems overdue for a thorough cleaning, especially the shared bathrooms. Do note that the rooms with attached shower are just that – you'll still have to use the shared toilets. On the positive, there is a lounge to chill out and watch a movie and a rooftop terrace where you can relax with a beer and enjoy the sea view. Rates include free WiFi, towel, linen and light breakfast.
