    Very good”

    I had booked a pricey private room with private bathroom, anticipating some “luxury” after 3 days in a jungle camp. When I checked in, however, I was informed that there was no water in that room until late that night due to some construction in town, but that I could use the dorm shower, which apparently is supplied by their own water tank. I had a bit of a tantrum about paying a high price for a private bathroom that I couldn’t use, and they switched me to a dorm room and refunded some of my money. The dorm room was fine, but the shower was a trickle of tepid water. A huge disappointment compared to what I had been hoping for. The young women at check-in were very nice.

    We shortened our stay from two nights to one night, as we had no running water the entire stay (no toilet or shower, or hand washing). We paid the same price as we would have paid for a night at the Sheraton in sandakan - so quite high - and were told no discounts or refunds for lack of water or useable facilities. We would not recommend, even though the staff were friendly ladies, and the rooms clean (enough).

    Very terrible facilities”

    I have stayed for 5 nights. It is awful. - Toilets: While they asked you not to wear shoes or slippers inside the hostel, the floor of the toilets are always wet. It is disgusting walking in bare-footed. The flush does't work and you see human faeces inside. The ventilator in one of the two toilets in the female dorm fell down for DAYS but no one took care of it. When you use the toilet, the ventilator spins directly next to your face. - Showers: Water pressure is always small. One day the showers in the female dorm totally didn't work. I went down to the 2/F to take shower. While water came out, it is so weak that you cannot clean yourself properly. There is no signs or explanation why the toilets and showers are not working. The staff are not helping either. - Wifi: Absolutely no connection in the female dorm - Breakfast: They said breakfast would be until 9:30. But at 9 they dismissed you saying there is no more food. They won't even open a pack of toast bread.
