    I loved staying here. I stayed here when I first landed in phillipines before moving onto El Nido and other islands. All of the staff looked out for me at all times and gave me some great tips for the rest of my trip. They also sorted me future bus bookings and trips away. There are two different butterfly hostels so make sure you save the right on your maps when you land. Walk down the alley it’s very safe - some friendly kids play around l. I would definitely recommend staying here.

    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.

    Lovely owners, I only stayed one night but she still woke up at 4am to make my breakfast before my flight and had me dropped off at the airport for a good price. Thanks! p.s. there's no credit card payment even though website says they do not

    A private little place tucked into a small neighborhood. It was a nice place to stay for an overnight in PP before flying out. The owners were very sweet and kind to us.

    We had a lovely 1 night stay here en route to Sabang. The lady who owns it was very nice, cooked us breakfast, booked our van to Sabang and let us check in early at 10.45am as we had done 2 back to back flights overnight and had no sleep. The only issue we had was the location trike drivers didn’t know where it was (down an unmarked dirt track off the main road) and the location is wrong on maps, so we ended up getting lost for over an hour after dinner and walking through a swamp in darkness.

    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.
