Property Description

The house was constructed sometimes in 1920s when Mr. Balili was still a bachelor.

The house served as the venue of grand social functions of Tagbilaran which were attended by prominent political and social personalities from both local and national levels.

One of those grand gatherings was the meeting of then President Roxas with Elpidio Quirino, a senator then, former governor Perfecto Balili, the brother of Eladio and some other important local political personalities.

In March 1942, the war (WWII) reached Bohol. Tagbilaran was occupied by the Japanese Imperial Army.
Almost everyone evacuated the town. The fine Balili house was requisitioned for use by high ranking Japanese officers where social gatherings were still held.

The house which still stands today, still carries the marks of its past grandeur that manifests how the Tagbilaranons lived their lives in the past.

    I stayed here with my partner and my mother and we had a wonderful time. I've given this hostel 10/10, not only because it meets criteria, but also because the wonderful owners really made our stay by inviting us and some other guests to a fiesta in a nearby town in their family friend's home. The hostel has a very rich history and the owners are fantastic people and very welcoming. Stay here if you can.

    If you come to Bohol, stay here. The historical wooden building is a must-see and the staff are brilliant. The hostel is within walking distance of the pier, which is great for when you arrive and is also close to shops and decent restaurants. It's super easy to hire a moto-tricycle to or a scooter to get to Panglao or the Chocolate Hills. I actually preferred staying in town and visiting the beaches. As I said, the staff are so welcoming and helpful it will make your stay a memorable one.

    Really enjoyed staying here. Location is very good , easy to walk to from the port. Welcomed by amazing owner and staff who cares about your stay and always go above and beyond to help. Remember this place is not a party hostel. Also on site there are local food vendor who provide amazing food at very reasonable prices why not give them a try.

    This place is a treasure. Not only is it beautiful, clean, safe, and excellent value for money, but the thing that makes Oasis Balili so special, is how truly wonderful the owners and staff are. They go above and beyond to look after their guests. To Gloria and team, thank you so much for everything. You have been the highlight of my stay in the Philippines, and you have given me a reason to return to Bohol one day. Keep on being amazing!

    My friend and I both loved our stay at this cute colonial style house. There were good vibes all round and the staff were extremely helpful and super kind. They even went out of their way to help us get in contact with a tour agency in Palawan. I would definitely stay here again if I got the chance and also because the healthy breakfast aka the oatmeal was delicious! 10/10 good hustle.

    This lodge was great! Right in the Center of the city. However the thing that made it for me was the couple who own it are absolutely lovely, they had water waiting for us and wanted us to pin where we were from, wanted us to make the most of our day there and gave us the booklet and recommended things. They were always there to help and told us so much history about the place. Motorbike rental available on site too. Deffo recommend

    Very warm and welcoming vibe. Beautiful house and it’s fairly quite even it’s in the city. One can chill on the veranda and the garden. I stayed in the single room. Room was a good size and bed comfy.

    Amazing staff, solid location for Bohol, it is a renovated older historic building so that is something you have to appreciate and factor in when staying here

    Really basic hostel, felt more like a homestay. Not a great area to stay in for tourists.
