    Staff was excellent, couldn’t have been better. The light breakfast is perfect before a beach tour of day of diving. Super clean and good vibes all around.

    Outstanding stay, very comfortable and chill place to hang out with an ideal location ! Not to forget to mention the great, friendly, fun and supportive staff Miss Christine and Miss Riza! We would definitely come back here! They also offered this amazing unique island / snorkeling tour - highly recommendable and worth it! All the best! Nico and Marius

    Such a lovely place. Great to meet people as there is a common area where the internet is. The rooms are clean, the bed was comfortable, but reaching the top bunker was a bit hard. You’ll need the fan on, as the ac will not actually reach the bed, even with the bed slidding doors open. The restaurant downstairs serves good food. The staff was helpful and also got a chance to meet one of the owners, very nice guy. Definitely recommend it for solo travelers its easy to meet people

    My stay at Happiness hostel was great. The room was nice and tidy upon arrival and remained cleaned throughout my stay. The bed was comfortable and a locker was also provided. Had sliding doors so good for privacy when sleeping. Toilet and shower facilities were always clean. The vibe was great and all the staff were super friendly, attentive to your needs and helpful with any questions. Added bonus the hostel is above an awesome cafe that has legit coffee, hummus and great healthy food options.

    I had an amazing stay there! 7 nights total. Located right across the beach (not swimable) but you have a beautiful view from the balcony which has some cute swing chairs. It’s a small hostel with a great resto under. Very clean, the staff was soooooooo friendly and very helpful. Probably the best place to stay for a low cost in el nido. Everything is recent. No buggs. Good ac. Lots of place to put your stuffs in the bunk beds. Loved it!!!

    Staff were great.. Wi-Fi was good on the first night but didn't exist on the second. Unfortunately there was no Wi-Fi in the rooms. Location was perfect. I'd say the beds were a little on the short side... I did however, love the sliding doors on the bed for privacy.

    Staying in Happiness Hostel has been really pleasant, I was able to take good R&R and the area for Island Tour pick ups is super convenient near the hostel. :) Places to dine are also walking distance, it is near Art cafe and Angel's Wish Seafood Restaurant - they serve really good food, the place is always jampacked! The hostel has free coffee, bread and fruits if you're in need of quick bites. The door partition of the beds adds a lot of privacy! Free wifi at the lobby is also helpful. :)

    Beds were decent - good privacy, 2 plugs, mini fan, 2 storage sections. No locks on the doors though. WIFI was decent but didn't reach the dorm. Showers fine too, though nowhere to hang anything other than over the door or up on the walls. Staff friendly and helpful. And nice and close from the Coron ferry. Not great for meeting other people though, at least while I was there.
