Property Description

At last, a place for backpackers to meet fellow backpackers in El Nido – a touted paradise in Northern Palawan.

We designed OMP with your needs in mind even as we commit to provide value accommodation against the usual challenges of emerging destinations: limited Internet connectivity, rationed electricity, and a rapidly expanding town beyond the locals’ expectations.

You may actually love it rustic and laid-back but expect some balance with availability of free basic breakfast, hotel-grade linen, hot showers(!), stand-by emergency power source, personalized assistance in island hopping and in-land tours from our devoted and friendly staff manning the reception 24/7.

Limited lockers are available at the reception if you need to store your valuables. Likewise, we have stored a wealth of information and tips just to make your trip within budget and optimized.

Stay in our private or dormitory accommodation while you grow your circle of friends with like-minded travellers. View House Rules

    Fantastic hostel! I booked to stay an extra three nights directly with the hostel. The staff are really friendly and always around, day and night. They clean constantly so cleanliness is good. AC in the room is really good, hot showers and free breakfast really make this place great. Probably the one thing to improve would be wifi as the connection can be bad when it's busy but still works. A brilliant stay, make sure to join in with karaoke!

    quite a nice hostel with ac in the rooms and friendly staff (shout out to the girl who wrote down a bunch of things to do in the philippines without us even asking!!). showers and toilets were separate which was nice and they were kept very clean. Within walking distance to everything and the free breakfast was good. the dorm itself i found nice albeit a bit cramped and if you don’t like the idea of 3 level bunk beds this isn’t the hostel for you (but i didn’t mind them plus they had curtains)

    Highly recommended if you don't mind sharing rooms with strangers. Lockers are provided for safekeeping and the staff are nice. More options for breakfast would be nice.

    This is a good place to save a little money and still get decent accommodations. The fans were pretty good, the staff starts breakfast really early which is good for early traveling (though it’s pretty simple). People don’t really hang out here (at least when I was there), but you can still meet people heading other places. There are lockers outside the dorm you can use. The big dorm is triple bunks and has bed curtains.

    Great staff, nice quiet little hostel if you’re spending a night in El Nido. Good value for money, but the AC isn’t the greatest

    Very Good

    Very good location for catching the ferry to Coron as it's an easy 5min walk down the road. The staff are friendly but the hostel was very empty when we were there and so there wasn't much of an atmosphere. Rooms and amenities were clean enough and all necessities were provided. Good value for money for those travelling on a budget.

    Cold showers, weak water pressure. Air conditioner in the rooms are not cold. I was stuck on the top bunk near the ceiling and even with the privacy curtains open and sleeping in my boxers I was covered in sweat. Then there is a gap at the head of the bed my pillow fell off during the night and because of the bed placement I was unable to retrieve it. Staff is mostly uncaring and unfriendly.
