    Such a really nice hostel. I love the room and the bathroom because they are very clean. It's very close to the beach where you can swim with turtles and sardines run. Staffs are friendly, and the food is really good.

    This place is the best hostel I’ve ever stayed in! The dorm rooms are absolutely huge, fabulous ambiance, amazing staff. 50 piso rum & cokes. Made so many friends, including two that I ended up traveling across the Philippines & into the mountains with. ✨ 10/10 recommend!

    Myself and my friend absolutely adored this hostel. It’s very sociable and we met so many people. The staff could not be more amazing, they would help us with anything we needed and then come out and party with us too :) there’s a great community around this area. The Canyoneering was amazing too! Highly recommend

    I honestly had the best stay ever! Amazing staff, perfect location, great beds and clean facilities. Literally the only improvement I can come up with is the water pressure of the shower
