    A little humble place. There was some miscommunication for the airport pickup but it is it was no big deal as I did not follow up or confirm it. They had sent someone to pick me up but since I didn't confirm it, I went to the Guesthouse on my own. Owners are nice and always greet you. I actually checked out on my birthday and wished me a happy birthday. They really read the paper you fill out 😊. They had also booked my van going to El Nido, which was hassle free!

    The Butterfly Totem Guesthouse was very convenient for getting to the airport, and offered us transport for 200PHP. There is a really good restaurant called Orange Gecko about 5 mins walk away, which is better than the usual fair in Puerto Princessa. The Princessa Gardens resort is just down the road (a 30min walk, or a cheap ride on a tricycle) and they have a great pool that you can enjoy, even if you are not a guest there.

    Good sized private room, A/C worked well and WiFi was good outside the room. Staff were really friendly and helpful in organising our trip to the underground river, and onto El Nido. We even stayed an extra night! Perfect place for a budget traveller wanting to see Puerto Princessa. Close to the airport and town (short tricycle ride away).

    A bit of a walk out of town, the security is good but you have to press the doorbell to get in which is annoying when you’re waiting for a while. The breakfast is average at best and the bathroom was tiny. Overall you get what you pay for.
