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

    I had the best time at this hostel! The location is crazy and the parties are like nothing I have ever witnessed! The reps, Jayden and Mart, are absolute legends! They make you feel super welcome from the start and definitely know how to get everyone up and about for the party each night! I would recommend this place to anyone. It is an experience like no other!

    A MUST STAY in the El Nido area. I had an amazing experience staying here, as always at Mad Monkey. Drawbacks are that there's no AirCon (fans only) in the rooms and no WiFi (and very weak cell service) either, which would have been nice to have now and then. With that said, the location is perfect in pure paradise. The food is really good too, and the bar and restaurant are 24 hours. And finally, the staff and reps are amazing!

    We stayed here for a long weekend and this place feels like paradise, we didn’t want to leave. Riza was a the best and made the boat trip one to remember. Definitely would recommend making a stop at this place - you don’t want to miss it.

    Only come here if you want to party! The location was great, right on Nacpan beach but it is a ball ache to get there as you have to walk down the beach and in the dark it wasn’t pleasant There was a rat that welcomed us in reception and there were plenty scavenging around in the night The security of the place is woeful, anyone can walk into your dorms and sleep wherever, they don’t give you a lock and key for the actual dorm room But the atmosphere was so so good!

    Don’t stay here! People were having sex in the dorms like it was a brothel. I’ve never seen so many naked people in the room and the bathroom facilities were FILTHY. I also missed my connecting flight to El Nido due to a delay, and reception refused to cancel my first night due to their policy and didn’t even try to meet me halfway. I found out later that 2 girls who were also staying at the hostel requested to cancel their last night cause they hated their stay there too and they honored it!
