Met my expectation
Nothing, a bit rundow place, bed was not comfortable, dorm was a bit small but I was alone so it was not problem, poor wifi at dorm but at reception was okay
Very friendly and helpful staff. Comfy bed. Very clean. Hostel is very centrally located but surprisingly quiet.
Average, but was only There for one night
Bedsheet need proper cleaning
The constant smoking that apparently wasn't allowed drifted into our room. When we asked reception to intervine they just shrugged and said they couldn't help. The WI-FI didn't work on the upstairs floor.
Smoky, Noisy and no wi-fi were the main issues. None of these were addressed by the staff even after asking them.
With a stay at Harbourside Backpackers - Hostel in Sandakan, you'll be steps from Sandakan Harbour Mall and a 2-minute drive from Agnes Keith House. Featured amenities include a computer station, dry cleaning/laundry services, and luggage storage.
