IMPORTANT: 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 - be prepared. Our rooms are clean and comfy, but simple and native. If you crave Air Con and 5-star fittings, best stay elsewhere. If you’re terrified of sand and the occasional creepy crawly, maybe just visit us for a day trip. 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.

+ 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.
+ Nearest cash point (ATM) is 16 kilometres away in El Nido town.
+ Very limited internet connection due to our isolated location (only available for emergencies) - No Wi-Fi
+ Fan rooms only (no A/C) and cold showers only

    Had a really great time at mad monkey. All the staff were really happy and kind and made the stay that much more enjoyable. The evenings were great how there was always something organised to do if you wanted! We went on the day trip island hopping tour with Josh and had such a great day! He was a sick tour guide, really helpful and I am really glad I went on the tour.

    Kept extending my stay here. This hostel is definitely one of best I’ve ever stayed in. Comfortable bed and clean bathrooms. Robbie, Vincent and Josh are so awesome. The rest of the staffs are so friendly as well. Perfect location, Nacpan Beach is so beautiful! Sick parties. I had so much fun here. Definitely going back!

    Stayed here for 4 nights, would have been 2 but the 3 lads who worked here Josh, Vincent and Robbie made me want to extend. Great location, right on the beach, foods great and there’s a half an hour free bar in the evening. Only downside is that there’s no WiFi due to the out of the way location, however for a few days this can be quite a healthy thing! Josh and Vincent were always down for livening the place up and getting everyone involved; day and night! Thanks for the the good time! Lewis

    The location is wonderful. Unfortunately the pressure to be constantly drunk or made to be felt bad by the staff for not being so, just didn’t do it for me. The hostel is out to make money from tourists and not much more. It’s not cheap for a hostel. The 3 guys who work there to encourage the partying are sleeping with any guest they can - that seems to be their job. Not nice. If you want constant party and have money to spend then this is the place for you.
