This is a philosophical question, not scientific. If you start questioning everything, you can't even know whether the surrounding world and other people exist at all. The maintainer of the 'simulation' could make things appear like anything they want. However, there's been some suggestions for an experiment that could produce results supporting the simulation hypothesis: http://users.cms.caltech.edu/~owhadi/index_htm_files/IJQF2017.pdf
