Property Description


Featuring an all-native hostel, beach bar, and restaurant, Mad Monkey Hostel Nacpan is your perfect beach (party) escape in the Philippines. Imagine laying on one of the best beaches in the world and hearing the waves crash before you, all while sipping coconuts, drinking ice cold beers, and enjoying woodfire pizzas.

At Mad Monkey Hostel Nacpan Beach, we’re right on the sand and we make the most of it with BBQs, volleyball, and paddleboarding. Sound like paradise? It gets even better when we throw in 30 minutes of free shots every evening in our bar, and then free shots every hour thereafter! Our resident DJ spins daily to keep the party going (as if you’ll need any more encouragement!).

Grab a bite at our restaurant – just the spot if you’ve been craving woodfire pizzas. For solo travellers, our take on El Nido’s famous tours will get you in the mix with other visitors. Tour M is so famous, you have to sign up early.


We are located 40 minutes north of El Nido Town, with a special Monkey tour taking off from Nacpan Beach itself. On Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays, we run Tour M - our famous (so famous, you have to sign up early) combination tour inclusive of kayaking, snorkelling, and non-stop music. Tour M also features a "boodle fight," a military-style Filipino dining experience by the beach featuring fresh fish, chicken, pork, salads, rice, and fresh fruits.

With the wide open beach just steps away, there’s plenty of space to get creative with sand sculptures before happy hour begins. From quiz nights to karaoke and beer pong sessions, our bar is the place to be once the sun sets – ask our staff about our nightly entertainment; there’s always something for everyone.


Our mixed dorms are fan rooms only and are fitted with bamboo beds with comfortable mattresses, free linen, and mosquito nets.

The adventurous (and we mean the serious adventurous only - really basic) can stay in one of our basic tents, while those who prefer more space and privacy can stay in our glamping tents - a little glamorous with 2 king single mattresses and a fan, but still camping. Those who want even more privacy, our loft room with epic views (crave unlimited palm trees for Instagram?) is another option.

All rooms are with shared bathrooms and come with towels and linen.


The most amazing, unspoilt places on earth aren’t always easy to get to. Mad Monkey Nacpan Beach is 16km from El Nido town, 12km from El Nido airport, and down a bumpy dirt road - so please be prepared for these before getting to paradise. Our rooms are clean and comfy, but simple and native. If you crave for air conditioning and 5-star fittings, it's best stay elsewhere. If you’re terrified of sand and the occasional creepy crawly, maybe just visit us for a day trip and have a Pacquiao Punch. If you’re adventurous and looking for a truly unique and unforgettable island experience on one of the most beautiful and unspoilt beaches in the world, we’ve got just what you’ve been looking for. 

Please be reminded that the nearest cash point (ATM) is 16 kilometres away in El Nido Town. We operate on purely cash basis, so please ensure you have enough cash to get you covered during your stay. Due to our isolated location, we have a very limited internet connection and this may only be used in emergencies. This means we have no Wi-Fi for you, which then means more time for you to socialise with real people. Lastly, all our rooms are fan-only and showers are cold (really refreshing though if you ask me).

Basic Twin Tent Bookings --- please be aware that this is a very small, simple camping tent. They will feel hot when the sun hits, damp when the rain falls, and cramped when you’re inside. Luggage will not fit in the tent, but we have lockers available for your luggage in the common area. There is enough space to lie down and sleep only. Please don't book it if you are not prepared for this. View House Rules

    Such An Amazing Place And Staff. It’s a Place Where The Atmosphere is Warm and Welcoming. I Have To mention Alex Stoodley, Because he made my stay more memorable than I can imagine. He Helped with Any questions I had with the Boat tour, how to navigate through town, accommodations and anything else I needed. Thank You Alex and Thank You Mad Monkey Staff! I will Definitely Come Back!

    I had the best few days here. By far my favourite hostel. I met the best group of people here and the staff are just amazing. They really go to such an effort to make you feel like you're part of the family.

    Absolute amazing time at Mad Monkey! Best location with the best people. It is always a good time especially when Alex has control of the room/boat. Can’t forget Bonbon, “T”, or Jojo. They have so much fun and you can’t help but have fun too. With such a great team and guests, you will forget that there is no wifi. However, don’t forget that there is no ATM near by like I did. The staff (Jessica and John) went above and beyond to get me to the nearest ATM. Thanks team at Mad Monkey!

    By far the best mad monkey!! Beautiful location and the best staff. The only warning I would give is that you may get trapped there. I only planned staying two night but stayed for a week. Great chilled in the day / get on it party vibe in the evening. All of the staff will make you feel part of the family. Very clean, new bedding every day and constant cleaning staff for toilets and dorm areas. Made my trip stopping there

    We had a really fun stay at mad monkey. The reps are super friendly and are definitely out to make you feel at home. Atmosphere is fab and free drink hour went down a treat. Perfect if you want a night of partying. We stayed in a tipi which was super luxurious considering you’re camping. Only negative is that I was constantly sandy. Overall, a fab stay and would deffo recommend for at least one night (maybe more if you’re made of stronger stuff than us).

    I don't usually write reviews, but this place deserves it. I have never had so much fun. The staff is nice, the DJ is good, and the beach is beautiful. There is no cell service or wifi, and I really enjoyed feeling disconnected during my stay. I met so many great people. I would highly recommend.

    Amazing spot, good staff, nice and clean. Fun party atmosphere. Food wasn't the best and a bit pricey but nice for convenience sake.

    Amazing place, away from el nido in Nacpan so be sure to bring enough money. Staff are INCREDIBLE. No WiFi, hot rooms, iffy bathrooms but you’re not really paying for that, more the location and atmosphere. Fantastic stay!!

    Have stayed in better mad monkeys for half the price. Don’t understand why this one is double when the facilities are extremely basic. Atmosphere was good as was the food, open bar every night and activities to get people talking to each other was good. I wouldn’t stay here again though, would stay at a cheaper hostel down the road and just come here for the parties.

    Hostel is in a perfect location on Nacpan Beach (if you don’t mind being a good 30 minutes + from El Nido town). Beach is beautiful and hostel is kept very clean. My major downside is the staff (minus the two reps working there). They were rude, unhelpful, unfriendly and there seemed to be no order or how things were done. 3 times during my 3 day stay they completely “forgot” my food order and I didn’t even get a sorry.
