While I was mentoring GSoC 2015 Hawk Auth project, we wanted to test the project in D8 sandbox often. Simplytest.me doesn't help here, because Hawk Auth uses Composer Manager to download extenal PHP library. (Another project using this set up is Commerce for D8.) There is an issue of supporting Composer in Simplytest.me queue, but it hasn't been followed up.
Therefore, we tried to use Docker to spin up a new Drupal installation. It was very fast and simple. Below is the documentation:
Step 0: Install Docker
Step 1: Spin up a database
docker run --name drupaldb -e MYSQL_ROOT_PASSWORD=password -e MYSQL_DATABASE=drupal -d mariadb
(here we created a docker container called "drupaldb" using "mariadb" image, then we created a database "drupal" and set root password to be "password")
Step 2: Spin up Drupal 8
docker run --name d8docker --link drupaldb:mysql -p 80:80 -d drupal:8.1.8
(here we created a docker container called "d8docker" using "drupal:8.1.8" image, then used port 80 on localhost for access and linked to the database container we just created)
Done. Now, you can open localhost or 127.0.0.1 on your browser to install Drupal into the database. If your localhost port 80 is being used, then you can change this section "80:80" in the above command to something like "1234:80", which will use port 1234 on your localhost.
Step 2.1: if you need to access the terminal of the D8 website container
docker exec -ti d8docker bash
(once you in, execute "export TERM=xterm" in your terminal for using text editor)
Step 2.2: if you want to read the log
docker logs -f d8docker
Step 3: Cleaning up
docker stop d8docker
docker stop drupaldb
docker rm -v d8docker
docker rm -v drupaldb

Have you tried...
Have you tried docker-compose, that makes it a breeze to link multiple containers together.
You just write a little YML file, and then you just say "docker-composer up" and you are good to go.
You can see an example here: https://github.com/WiredPea/ddd

Zeus Drupal Hosting Platform
Very neat. Seems like a bit more work than necessary though. You should check out Zeus ( https://www.drupal.org/project/zeus ). It's an easy way to create Drupal sites with just a few clicks.

Database password: password
Port number: 3306

database host name
Thank you, that wasn't completely obvious to me, especially the "Host: drupaldb" setting.

When installing host name should be druapldb

If you're using kitematic try this image for testing -- https://hub.docker.com/r/8thom/drupal8/
Both drush & drupal console are both preinstalled inside the container so modules can easily be installed.

Nice, but with Cloudways Drupal installation can be done with just 1-click, more info at: https://www.cloudways.com/en/drupal-cloud-hosting.php
