OMG has a friendly, helpful staff, but they were confused about bookings and difficult to find at times. The rooms weren't super clean and the bathrooms were horrendous... No pressure in the shower resulted in little more than a trickle of water, all of the toilets required a bucket for flushing, and the bathroom didn't have a light in it. The hostel serves food which was nice, and there was a stage / live music. Personally, I had an early flight so I wish I'd known it was more of party vibe.

Stayed here twice now, it's a perfect location, the staff were helpful and friendly. There's some negative reviews on this place but there unjustified in my opinion. For the price it's spot on! Scott Gregory. England

I think the negative reviews on this place shouldn't put you off staying here, I think some people expect far to much from a hostel priced at only 250p. The location is excellent, right near the airport. The women at the desk bent over backwards to help me and warn me on the tricycle drivers trying to rip you off. I've stayed here twice now and it's fine!

Arrived expecting a twin room but had booked a double due to a miscommunication between hostelworld and the hostel. The lady was understanding and shifted things around so that we got a free upgrade to a 3 bed room with en suite for the same bargain price of 300 pesos. Friendly and helpful staff the whole time we were there. Had some great food down at baywalk in the evenings (recommended by hostel staff). Pleasant stay. Returned on our way back to manila.

Lovely people and nice environment, even though it does not has hot water, but this seems to be normal in all hostels in Palawan, anyway you will always enjoy a refreshing shower with the hot weather.

the staff are lovely and the location for Puerto Princesa is great, but the facilities are the nicest. the dorm is very cramped and hot and the bathrooms/toilets arent the best.

Really helpful staff, but the place isn't very clean especially the bathrooms.

The dorms are dirty, the bathrooms terrible and the owner, while lovely, gave us false information : - OMP Hostel in El Nido is not a sister hostel of OMG - And it is not cheap : 550 Pesos a night for the cheapest dorm. - It is not easy to find accommodation for 6 people in El Nido at 10-11 p.m. in late November.

OMG is a basic value for money hostel and you will not be dissapointed if you book with this in mind. There is a nice little common area upstairs and they are currently renovating with what looks to be a promising bar and dance floor area. The rooms are clean and have lockers. The highlight of this place is definitely the owner who is extremely friendly and welcoming. She speaks excellent english and gives great advice on what to do in the area and in the greater Palawan region.

It was clear no-one had been in the room recently and wasn't checked before our arrival. Found a cockroach in the bathroom on arrival and hair still in the drain cover. Also found some hairs on the bedding. I know this is very budget but some things need to be checked. Lacking atmosphere, maybe due to the lack of guests at that point because of ongoing renovations.
