Best dive in Semporna! May 19, 2011
Although I would prefer to dive from, and stay at Mabul island for diving around these parts, this place is all-round well suited for the task as well.

Its very basic, fairly clean but most of all cheap! The overall impression is dragged well down by the fact that Semporna is nothing but a tiny village, where absolutely nothing goes on after you come home from your dive trip!

You can basically hang out in the Scuba Junkie bar/restaurant thats connected to the dive place, and thats it.

If you consider going to Semporna to dive Sipadan (most likely), do yourself the favour and go to Mabul island. Its much better overall!

Affordable and fun hostel in Semporna Nov 20, 2010
I was there with my friends october 2010 for our Open Water Course.Love the location,you can easily get anything you needed there.Stores,pharmacy,restaurant,market is very near.Staff are friendly and helpful.The dorminatory room,though look old is well-kept and clean.However,the bathroom is often flooded with water.Scuba junkie bar is just next door with live band on every tuesday and friday night..most of the people there you already met from your diving trips :) which make it more fun.Seem to me scuba-junkie is the most alive place in semporna for travellers and divers :)

Basic, but the people are awesome Apr 20, 2009
I had a fantastic experience here. I was in the dorm and most of the people with me were working on their dive masters. Even though the town of Semporna isn't much, you go for the diving. The rates are reasonable if you dive with them too. They have fantastic staff that are extremely accommodating. There is a restaurant and a bar next door with decent food (although a little greasy) and drinks...great people- staff and guests...
