Clean, quiet, nice and kind and helpful staff, bathroom in dorm with shower and hot water, basic breakfast included, efficient laundry service at affordable price. I don't think anybody can expect a better deal than this... fully satisfied!

Stayed for a night in the dorm before catching a flight the next day. Didn’t use their scuba/snorkeling services, but the dorm bed was comfortable, the bathroom was clean and the wifi worked well in the lobby area. The location on the pier was convenient...More

This is definitely the cheapest place to dive sipadan from. The staff is very friendly and helpful. If you are going to sipadan, you'll probably go with Geoff who is a real hoot. The hostel though is decent and nothing more.

Check skull mountain, or skull hill, or something. It's a nice sidetrip.
