Property Description

Welcome to Ilakai Hostel, a place owned and designed by one who fell in love with the special Siargao island charm! If you are a social backpacker looking for a laid-back island life experience, this place is perfect for you.

Siargao is one of the best places in the world to surf. The best thing about our location is that it is around 10 minute walk to Cloud 9, which has spots for advanced and for beginner surfers. We have local guides with private boats to take you to the right surfing spot for each season, tide and weather. We also have quality surfboards made by popular surfboard makers from Cebu and excellent surf instructors.

There are so many places to see and so many memories to make in Siargao Island. We have Tagalog, Bisaya and English-speaking staff available most of the time during the day for recommendations to help you maximize your travel days. After a day of fun, we have common areas where you can eat, drink and socialize. We have a huge garden area where you can practice yoga, sunbathe, lounge on a hammock or train for that next big wave you want to ride. We also have a Nipa hut style bathrooms, outdoor showers and kitchen with swing chairs. Our hostel is made of natural and local materials so you can feel that island vibe wherever you are. This place is a few minutes walk to a nearby beach with a sunset view. It is dust-free on dry months and puddle free on rainy days.

Our hostel is newly built and each guest has an assigned locker cabinet. We observe quiet hours starting 10PM to respect neighbors and other guests who want an early night.

Siargao was love at first sight. We hope to bring the same experience to you.

    Ilakai is conveniently located near Cloud 9 and the Sunset Bridge (Catangnan Bridge). Hostel is well-maintained and the hosts are very accommodating & friendly. Common kitchen is also available at the guests disposal. I would highly recommend this hostel to those who are "working from the island" as the wifi is reliable. Excellent value for money. Thank you ate Kai for the excellent stay.

    Grace and Shaun are amazing hosts. They are so welcoming from the second you arrive and introduced me to everyone in the hostel. The facilities are extremely clean, being swept and mopped ever 2 - 3 hours. The bed are comfy and clean. They have a kitchen were you can cook your own food should you wish too. Jess is new to the team and is a great fit with everyone. The hostel has a great chilled out vibe but I found it easy to meet other travels as a solo traveller. Thanks for a great stay guys!

    I loved my stay at Ilakai. Such a chilled and nice hostel with an amazing atmosphere. The common area and garden are perfect, and it’s a hostel you’d like to stay longer in! Shaun and Grace are extremely welcoming and friendly people and the place has a wonderful vibe. Couldn’t recommend this hostel more highly :)

    Great stay at Ilakai! Wifi is working great as long as everyone is not connected at the same time. The A.C. dorm room is very, very good quality. It’s getting cleaned every single day. Only thing keeping Ilakai from a perfect 10 score is the lack of hot showers. You feel like a part of the family, and the food is super yummy as well.

    I had the best time at Ilakai. Jimmy and the other staff were wonderful!! So friendly and helpful no matter what time of day or night. I was in the non-aircon dorm which could get quite hot in the mornings (good motivation to get up and do something with the day!) but the aircon dorm was a much nicer temperature. I love how lush & green the common area is - it really feels like an oasis. Great gathering place for chatting/chilling/drinking/etc. Made amazing friends here. Comfiest pillows ever!
