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

    We loved our stay at Mad Monkey Nacpan Beach the parties were so great every night. Open bar for half an hour and free shots every hour is every backpackers dream. Day and night activities were hosted by the great reps Mart and Jack. All the staff were so friendly and helpful especially during these interesting times. Even the managers Mike and Riza were so cool and nice. Would highly recommend!

    The sickest location, made a 10/10 by the atmosphere. Jack and Mart were amazing reps. Answered questions all the time, led Tour M in the day and made the best atmosphere in the night. Beds were nice, can’t complain when you’re right on the beach. Cheers lads

    Absolutely fab, beach here is amazing and there's literally nothing to do except sit at the hostel on the beach having food and drinks brought to you. social vibe is very good and they have events and free drinks etc on in the evening. The only downside was I listened to the people who said to only stay 1 night :-( If I could go back I would stay at least 2 or 3 nights it is so chill and fun

    Urgh!!! This hostel definitely know how to throw a partey!!! Wish they are very near in my place but hey! it's all worth the time and money! I had a wonderful time staying at the hostel and enjoyed the tour so much. Jack is also very energetic and there was never a dull moment with him hosting the event. Love you, Monkeys! 🤣🤣🤣 -chantelle

    Not only does the hostel have an insane atmosphere but there is also an option to do Tour M which was an insane trip made even better by the best rep I have met on my travels. Our time here wouldn't have been nearly as good as it was if it hadn’t have been for Jack, HUGE THANK YOU!! Free drinks are a great way to get the night going - we enjoyed every second of being here. Will miss it here a lot. From j dog & k dawgg

    Absolutely amazing place! As a solo traveller you know mad monkey is going to be the best place to meet new people and this one didn’t disappoint! Even if you’re not the most outgoing person but have decided to travel alone the reps/staff I came to meet Mart, Jack and Riza we so engaging and get you involved! Every night there is always something happening at the hostel from island hopping, party games to trivia nights. Would fully recommend this hostel!

    Overall a good experience. Jayden was amazing as he helped carry our bags. The walk is very long across the beach so STRONG advice. Do not go unless you have a backpack!

    We arrived as the Philippines were going into lockdown.The group I was with got told numerous times we can leave the Philippines however the hostel refused to believe us even after showing official documents! Instead they told people they were stuck there 30 days just so they had customers.Frendz in El Nido however is incred and gave honest and true facts instead of praying on the weak and trying to brainwash them to stay.Feel sorry for those that are stuck there now for 30 days cos of this!
