    Amazing stay in this hostel, the location is a bit far but close enough to Las Cabanas beach where there is always tricycle to bring you back. The all staff is so helpful and kind they would go out of there way to help you whatever happen and the cabin are just Waw. Such a peaceful place where you can relax away from the fuss of El Nido. Highly highly recommended and if you are lucky you may wanna join the owner for an amazing karaoke night. Will definetly go back if I pass again in El Nido ❤️

    Ray and Emily made our stay amazing from the moment we arrived! They organised all of our boat trips/scooter hire within a matter of mins and gave great recommendations on things to do and places to eat. Although the location is 15 mins outside of El Nido town this doesn’t matter as Ray provides FREE rides to town 4 times a day and La Cabana beach is only a 20 min walk! Ray invited us and the rest of the guests to join him for Karaoke on the Saturday which was good fun. They are the best hosts!

    This hostel was really nice, clean, and private. We booked two private rooms which came with a large king size bed and an essential mosquito net. The staff are wonderful, friendly, helpful and relaxed. The downsides to this hostel are that it is far from the main town where the attractions and liveliness are, so good idea to rent a moped. Also, it has no wifi, phone reception, or mobile data whatsoever. If this is an issue for you, stay in El Nido town where the hostels have working wifi.

    The room was immaculate and very spacious with a comfy bed and good size en suite. The breakfast was delicious and can be brought to you if you wish. The staff were helpful and attentive. We were also able to book tours and transport through them. I would definitely recommend staying here! Good value for the area too!

    We arrived right at the beginning of a severe tropical storm. Due to no fault of the hostel, the power had gone out. Ray got us settled in, gave us candles and helped us arrange a scooter to get food. Ray and George were lovely and very hospitable. We also enjoyed the pancake breakfast served in the table area in our hut. We stayed only one night because of the storm and the power outage, but would have stayed longer otherwise. It is farther from town, but with a scooter it’s not a problem.

    Lovely place with amazingly friendly and helpful staff. Quite far out of town though and the tricycles are expensive but only 25-30min walk from las cabañas beach. Delicious pancakes for breakfast. Good value for money. Would stay again!

    I've got mixed feelings about Coco. After reading the reviews and ratings, my expectations didn't meet reality. Pros: Amazing staff, especially Ray, the owner. They're helpful and go out of of their way to make sure you are enjoying yourself. The villas are nice and cute Cons: Location is quite out of the way from anything. Atmosphere was way under expectations. WiFi was essentially unusable and there's no cell service out there with a Philippines SIM
