    Only had one might in Moalboal and this is where I stayed. It was very clean, really great location, and really clean bathrooms and showers (super rare in Philippines). Cold showers, but mostly places in SE Asia do too. Common area upstairs was really cool. They offer so many different sized storage lockers, which is really convenient, so make sure you bring your own locks. Seemed a little hard to make friends, but maybe it'd be easier if I stayed longer

    My first time to stay here and I enjoyed it. I booked for the 5 mixed dorm bed and it's affordable. Location there is accessible to the cafes, diving shops and even the bars. You can just walk from outside to the nearest seashore and swim with the sardines and if you're lucky enough, you can swim with the turtles. Would recommend this to travelers who are budgeting their expenses as much as possible :)

    Great place, second time here, stayed both times in the private double room. Place is clean, no frills really, but as it’s less than 30 seconds walk from the water and bars, it can’t be beat. We used the guest kitchen to cook our own food during our stay. Tip: there is a fantastic outdoor market in Moalboal for vegetables and fruits, and an amazing fish/meats market nearby as well. Rent a bike (as low as 300p per day) and make the ten minute trip daily for AMAZING seafood you can cook yourself

    I enjoyed my stay here. It’s a pretty social atmosphere. Good for me as a solo traveler. It’s close to everything and the staff is extremely helpful. Great value for money.

    Great location near everything. Gets a bit hot at night as there is no ac and there are only a few fans to circulate the air. Has chill hangout spot upstairs but very small space to actually chill in the hostel (not really needed since there are many spots to chill nearby). Overall cleanliness is hit or miss..some days it's good but other days it is not well maintained. Good for the value and location. Thanks to staff who sent us some clothes we left there!

    Location was great, however their wasn’t much room for socializing, and even if we wanted to the staff was always sitting in the common area, all of them would be there even some of their family showing up as well. Other then that the room was fine, the location is definitely what makes it worth if.

    You get what you paid for. It’s in a great location. Weird that the toilets and shower are on the first floor. The chill out room is in the dorm room which is also weird if you’re trying to sleep and others are speaking in there. Otherwise, it’s fine and it works.
