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 us).

Glamping Tent Bookings --- please be aware that we have two types of glamping tents; standard and superior. They both have two king single mattresses, so it's perfect for both friends and couples. Fans are included in the tents; shared bathroom. Standard glamps are 3 x 3 metres, while superior glamps are 4 x 4 metres. While they are the same overall, superior glamping tents are bigger and have more space - it's always a great choice! View House Rules

For solo travellers, our island-hopping tours and twice-weekly booze cruise will get you in the mix with other visitors.


As we're beachside, you’ll find plenty of diving centres and island tour vendors along the shore right outside our door. From El Nido Airport, take a tricycle taxi and you can be with us in around 30 minutes (this should cost between 400 and 600 pesos). Coming from El Nido town? A tricycle will cost you around 500 to 700 pesos and take 40 minutes. Ask for Nacpan Beach and you’ll be taken to a drop-off point – we’re 150 metres away from there.

Rooms and Dorms

Our mixed dorms have bamboo beds with comfortable mattresses, free linen and mosquito nets. Or, choose to be at one with the great outdoors and book out a tent for the night. We have private rooms available, too. Plus, your stay gets you free towels, so you can travel a little lighter.

Extras and activities

Take time out from the party and settle down in our common room to write in your travel journal. With the wide open beach just steps away, there’s also 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 at the front desk about our nightly entertainment.

    This is the best hostel in the Philippines! Amazing views, super chill vibe and dope theme nights. Be sure to stay for the gender bender and music quiz nights and catch one of the boat tours 😁 Special thanks to the awesome reps Rad, Josh and Em for having a blast in the bar every night and being helpful in booking tours and rides to town. Shoutout to the other staff DJ brown, Ronald, Alex, and Jun Jun, hilarious little devils. Will def return again for more shenanigans.

    We have just left the Philippines and so extremely happy to have spend the last 4 days in Mad Monkey in a stunning Nacpan beach. Seriously, the beach is jaw dropping! The staff was very engaging from the first minute we stepped in a hostel (especially Josh&Em - ultimate troopers). The beds were massive for a bunk, mosquito nets and lockers. All you need, really. It is located literally at the beach which serves as a brilliant spot for daytime laziness or nighttime stargazing.

    Mad Monkey is a very nice hostel, the rooms are nice, each bed is big and has a plug point. (stayed in the dorm) Fans are sufficient to keep your room cool enough, the staff were epic and friendly especially the front desk ladies, particularly Jessica! Very much a party hostel, only thing I would say is that if your not keen to drink or party you feel a bit forced too, so if you dont want to party dont stay here. The free drinks they provide were awesome and generously poured!

    Loved it here! THE BEACH IS THE BEST IVE BEEN TO IN MY LIFE! Hostel is great. No Wi-Fi and virtually no data service either, though. Everything is always sandy but you’re literally on the beach. They made my bed and I think changed my sheets on my second day! Mopped the bathroom (though it doesn’t help). Didn’t like the smelly water in the shower but this is the most fun hostel and even with the drawbacks I loved it and recommend a couple nights here. Multiple full size fans in the rooms too.

    Had sooo much fun here! The activities at night, the 30 minutes open bar, the free shots every hour at night made my trip. There is no key or lock on your dorm room so anyone could come in and out. There are lockers but mine was not open for me when I arrived. They are constantly cleaning the bathrooms although its impossible to keep them dry or clean from sand. They advertise the fact that there is no wifi but you can use their laptop if you need to. Best beach I've ever seen! Gotta stay here.

    Kind of a bit of a dead town, I’m sure it’s better in the dry season. Staff were super lovely especially Em. No wifi.
