    We had an incredible stay here. We stayed in the red dragon room and we couldn’t fault it. Only thing I would say it’s not for early birds as there was a rooster that would be our alarm clock, which worked for us as it was perfect timing for us to get up and see the sardine run. The location was right in the heart of the action and the locals had fantastic hospitality skills.

    The reviews for this hostel were very mixed so I was glad to find this hostel so nice. Staff are very friendly and helpful, location was perfect and easy to find. We stayed in the 5 bed dorm which was very clean and comfortable. The door to the rooms don't lock and don't close properly however we didn't find this a problem. Would definitely stay here again

    I really enjoyed this little hostel. It's got all the basics covered and for the price is great value. I stayed in the 5 bed dorm, which had two good fans going for good air flow. Typical low water pressure in showers, but not too bad. I don't mind that anyway. Staff were really friendly, booked a tour through them, all good. I met some lovely people here and I appreciated the free coffee in the morning :) Would stay here again if I went back to Moalboal 👍

    We stayed in a four bedroom dorm, even though we hadn't paid extra for one. The room was great, the reception is cute and the staff is friendly. You can refill your water bottle and you are close to the beach and a multitude of restaurants. Only a cheap ride from Moalboal bus station, the hostel even sends you an email with a clear description of how to get to the hostel Great place to stay !

    We thought this was the cheapest and only option when we searched for a place to stay. There are a million to choose from once you're there, and they have got to be better than this place. If you read the other reviews, you'll see the rude lady that will respond to my post. It is so unbelievably hot in the dorms that you actually cannot breathe. The heat just consumes you and there is so much more that the place can do to fix that, such as having fans that actually work. Toilets are disgusting.

    Incredibly basic hostel. It was quite cheap but a lot of things didnt work. No hot water, none of the plug sockets in our room worked, there was an army of ants parodying themselves through our room. Every morning we were woken up at 4am by chickens, definitely bring ear plugs if you are planning to stay here. Location was very good for staying in Moalboal.

    BEDBUGS!!!! I was bitten MORE THAN 30 TIMES in this hostel! Completely disgusting! The owner always was very rude to me when I asked for directions on how to get a ferry to siquijor he tried to explain but failed (maybe because he doesn’t speak proper English) and said “it’s all on our website, you can go there and it’s all written there” even tho he was just in front of me. Don’t fool yourself, it’s cheap but definitely not worth the bedbugs bites!
