    So fantastic. We stayed in the new dorms and the facilities were straight up luxury. The beds were nice and comfy, the atmosphere was amazing and we met so many awesome people during our stay. We met a group there at the bar and decided to do their Kawasan falls trip together and had so much fun. Literally a few feet from a nice beach and had the option to run a tab for the duration. 10/10 a must stay!

    My 2nd time staying in this Hostel and still enjoyed it! this time, i went here with my cousins and they loved it! Place is near to the diving spots we were able to see the sardines without having to pay for a lot since they're just nearby! They also offer social activities on saturdays such as beer pong and even a yoga session too! maybe the next time we'll visit, we might opt to have a yoga session! Thanks chief mau!

    Great vibe with large areas for relaxing and socialising. Wifi is quite good. We highly recommend doing the canyoneering with them also. Food is good and not too pricy considering Moal Boal. I would 100% stay here again.

    Great location, 50 metre walk to the beach and very close to all the main restaurants and bars. Saw the sardine run and turtles just down the end of the street. Overall a great place to stay in Moalboal! And also they have the most adorable dogs Stitch and Bacon.

    Great location. Stayed in the private room with ensuite and it was definitely worth the extra money. The bathroom was nice and modern where I think the shared bathrooms are pretty average. Only let down was there wasn't much atmosphere here everyone kept to themselves. If you don't stay here book the canyoneering through this hostel the company that does it through them is awesome it was the highlight of my trip. The tour leaders are great guys and love to go for a beer after the tour.

    Hostel rooms are nice, shower is ok. There was never toilet paper or hand soap. Had to go in the reception to get it. Breakfast is god. As a solo traveler I found it very hard to meet people in this hostel, maybe I was just unlucky.

    There was dog S**T on the floor several hours, but the staff wouldn't clean it up. The dogs were very aggresive which made me feel less safe. One dog even tried to bite me.
