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.


OMG was my home away from home on my Sept trip to Palawan and i couldn't have enjoyed my stay more. From the moment i walked through the gates i felt at home and was treated as family. Dorm was clean and quiet, facilities were adequate, location is convenient, staff were extremely accommodating and the price of a bed was well below what you would expect to pay. Would definitely recommend- looking forward to staying again after renovations!

Good location as it is very near the city proper. The room is good and clean; however, you would hear noises from other guests in the adjacent room. The toilet flush didn't work and the sink had clogged. Good for transient stay only. Not much to do and see in the vicinity as well.

I really enjoyed my stay at this hostel. It was clean and I had my own bathroom! (This is a plus in Palawan). The manager was very helpful and easy to talk to. I'd totally stay here again.


I enjoyed my time at the OMG House. Clean dorms. Nice location. Friendly staff.


Waited a long time for somebody at reception. Lacking atmosphere. No lock on door to the dorm room. The two bathrooms were quite small. Staff were friendly though.


Please looks like a hole in the wall. You get what you pay for basically, which was fine with me since all I need was a place to sleep. The staff is helpful in a way. Not much do to around the area. I thought it was a decent place to stay while going to the Underground river, which takes up most of your day. My only issue was waking up with mosquito bites. There is a McDonalds in front of the place.


Very friendly and helpful owner, who really goes out of her way to offer helpful advice and information to her guests. She can also arrange trips to the Underground River and Honda Bay. The location is also good in the middle of Rizal Avenue, conveniently near shops, banks, restaurants etc.


The staff is incredibly helpful! I could not have done half of what I have done without the owner of the hostel... Thanks!!!
