It was a simple and nice place to stay, especially the bamboo terrace. Although, they could place an electronic plug there. The bathroom is always clean, there is a kitchen for self-cooking and the rooms look all quite nice. Would recommend to stay there!


Although it was for only three days, it was able to pass very comfortably. It is a hotel to recommend you very much. I am near the middle of the main street and think that a location is also good. Thank you.

Clean and good location. Staff could have shown where facilities are. Atmosphere wasn't great but that's because the hostel was empty.


Nice atmosphere, helpful staff, pretty much what you look for when looking for a great hostel to stay at


Very good atmosphere, helpfull staff.


Good location. You can snorkel, see small turtles on the sea opposite to the hostels (seen at 3pm) and sardine run (all times). The beach is gone if there is high tide in Panagsama Beach.. All the restaurants near by the hostel are quite expensive for filippinos. In the morning for cheap food you can go to "The corner" and find cheap rice and fish/meat already cooked. (around 15 pesos for rice and 25 pesos for fish).


Being able to use the small kitchen area to cook and make cups of tea/coffee was a refreshing change and unlike any other hostel I've stayed at in the Philippines.


Good location in center of beach 'village' close to bars/food.Staff helpful prior and during stay. Nice chill area upstairs and hammocks. All showers are cold - which is fine, but simply a high tap. I stayed in private room with on suite, and shower was worse, just a dribble. The wi-fi is not existent - shows signal but no data - no signal in most expensive rooms? A tv or some music/docking station could add to the chilled atmosphere. Mattress and pillow very light/soft.
