Highly recommended
This is an extremely fine hostel, you get a clean, spacious room, towels and a free Wi-Fi. There are four showers and four toilets, so you won't mind a room doesn't have them. It is located in the center of Sandakan, within a walking distance from anywhere you would like to get to, staff will answer all questions and point the best location for your need.

Basic but fine
Just stayed for one night before we went on a tour. Cheap but clean with good facilities and helpful friendly staff in the middle of Sandakan. No issues with the hostel but if you can avoid staying in Sandakan I would as it's not much to talk about, better staying in Sepilok if you can.

Best hostel so far.
We've been traveling for 3months now around south east Asia and Borneo sandakan backpackers is by far the best hostel we've stayed in. The area is perfect, The place is very clean, the staff very friendly, the price is low and you quickly feel at home. The staff prepares your breakfast in the morning ( or you can prepare it yourself if you feel like doing it) they help you getting the best deals when it comes to travelling around, they are always around to answer your questions or to give you an adapter :) It's the only place we've been so far where we dare to go to the toilet bare feet. There is warm water, there is a computer available in the common area where you can transfer your last elephant pictures on your fb wall :) Everything works! There is only one socket in the room but they provide you with a domino. The Wi-Fi connection is strong enough to download series on Netflix, the fridge is always filled with fresh beers that you can get for the lowest price in the city, etc. This hostel is a perfect example of how it should be everywhere else.

Fantasticly friendly, helpful and clean
Amazing value for money. Really friendly and helpful hosts. Super clean and loved that they cooked eggs for breakfast for us, irrespective of the time we came down. Air conditioned spacious room. Toilets and showers clean.

Cheap and clean hostel
My friend and I stayed here twice, each time for one night. This hostel is conveniently located not far from the sea and also from a shopping mall where you can get almost everything you might need. The rooms, the toilets/showers and also the entire building were very clean and the staff were all friendly and helpful.
