    Without a doubt, my favourite hostel I’ve ever stayed in, 3 hours of free rum and coke, karaoke and free shots. If you looking for a great laugh then big Paul’s is the place, the showers were nice, beds comfy, everything dies at 10 so if you didn’t want to go out you could go to sleep while the others go to the club. It’s not far from las Cabanas Beach. You would be an idiot to not go to this hostel

    My stay there was amazing ! The owner as well as the staff are fantastic. Very warm, friendly and very accommodating. They made our stay more than pleasant and incredibly memorable. From local advice to clubs, we were all set ! Nothing negative. Place is well located - Room had AC, Clean and nice dorms ! No need to say about the free booze from 19:00 to 22:00 and the karaoke kicking in when the rhum start warming you up :) Would definitely recommend the place ! And there's so much to see around!

    Not in the middle of El Nido, but based right by the beach which is lovely. Lots of cafes and bars very nearby. The staff are lovely, even when I managed to lock us out of 2 safes! You can do a fab boat tour with them, and they provide laundry services too. Rooms were clean and cool, and bathrooms were good. We spent 2 nights here, before heading into El Nido town for 2 nights, a nice split of beach and more night life.

    Pros: free rum and coke, located near a ton of restaurants on Corong beach, the beds are okay, mineral water to brush teeth Cons: Wifi is non-existent, water quality is shit, they overbook their rooms I booked 2 nights here and had to stay in a shxxtty hostel nearby the first night because they overbooked their rooms. Learned that at least 4 other people also got turned away for overbooking. Carla, the manager, tried to make me pay more for the 2nd night. I wouldn't stay again.

    We only stayed here for one night between the ferry from Coron and heading to the airport, but wish we would have stayed here when we were previously in El Nido! Good atmosphere, clean room with AC, and free breakfast. Only thing that I could complain about was that they play music/karaoke until around midnight so if you have an early morning like us, it’s not ideal, but definitely not that bad!

    I really enjoyed my stay in Big Paul Hostel. I initially was planning to spend one or two nights to give myself time to find another hotel / resort but I was very satisfied by the atmosphere, the helpful manageent team and the cleanliness of the hostel. So I extended my stay until my last day in El Nido. Great location as well with a good variety of restaurants and attractions. I would definitely recommend it and I would personally pick the hostel again when I go back there.

    Great way to meet people and make friends because everyone gets drunk on the free rum and coke. Would definitely stay here again. Good value for money

    Overall a decent hostel with great staff and atmosphere. However throughout our stay there were bugs in the room and the bed which was disappointing. There is also only a small safe for storing valuables. The free rum and coke was a nice touch but would have swapped that for free water refills. The WiFi only worked in the seating area which isn't the end of the world but don't depend on it.

    This is a super hostel to party, meet people, sing karaoke and drink free run and coke in the evenings. The hang out spots are lovely but noisey in the eve. The WiFi is good at reception and in hang out spots but there is none in the dorms. Occasionally the water runs low in the shower and therefore runs brown (!) The location is ok. 100 pesos from town centre ijln tricycle. Short walk from beach front restaurants. Beach isn't really a sun bathing beach though. There is no large locker storage.

    The wifi was exceptionally bad, one of the staff members was very rude and unfriendly, the doors don’t lock or have a key, only two of the showers had hot water and there was a loud banging right outside of our window all hours of the night which was startling and hard to sleep through. The beds were also pretty unclean there was already sand in my bed when I got into it.
