Sandakan Backpackers Hostel
My place is close to restaurants and dining, great views, and art and culture. You’ll love my place because of the views, the location, and the people. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, business travelers, and families (with kids). Our roof top terrace, is the place for guest to chill out and relaxing while looking at the blue sea, especially during sunny day. At our roof top terrace, our guest can enjoy their favourite books or great sea view while ralaxing in hammocks.
I consider myself a local boy, because i was raised up here. Actually, i was born in Tawau. I like to travel, whenever i have the money and time. Travelling allow me to learn and know more about people, culture, lives, history and sturcture of other country. I'm a squash fan, squash is the only balls game that you can play alone, even without partners.
Our hostel is located in the city centre ,within walking distance to all the main attractions, public facilities, bistro, convinient store and restaurant. There are 2 old Chinese temples located near by to the hostel, only 15mins to 20 mins walk. Both temples are more the 100 years old.

In our neighborhood, you also can find some nice bistro around the corner, the bistro has a very good live band show,especially during night time. Even entertainment like movies,only 5 mins walk from our hostel.
