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

    Great hostel. Just by the beach, restaurants and in the centre of town. Marked as ‘Zen hostel OMP’ on Did tour C through them and made friends from the hostel. Showers cold but that’s okay with the heat. Breakfast eggs/pancakes

    for my very first time in a Hostel..OMP was great! Rooms had air con which was nice. Every morning there was a basic breakfast which included coffee or tea and bread and or pancake with a banana. Staff kept everything clean especially the bathroom. Location was awesome because it was literally a two min walk to the beach and close to the tour spot I booked. Everywhere is walking distance. I would overall stay here again especially for the price.

    Good location, paying for basic amenities - social life wise was up and down. The first night I stayed, people already had groups but the second night I met a few more solo travellers. Best for the location - right behind all the beach bars and clubs and close to ATM’s. Facts: the local burger spot to the right of the hostel if you’re facing it is so delicious

    Staff are always there when you need them! Quiet hours is are strictly enforced after 1030. Beds are pretty comfortable and decent aircondtioning. Not that much of a social hostel but bars, clubs and restaurants are just right around the corner. Would definitely stay here again!

    Not a bad place to stay if you want to save some money. El Nido is pretty expensive and OMP is literally right downtown which makes it perfect if you want to be close to all the action/hit the bars at night. Honestly no complaints, there isn’t much of an atmosphere but if you’re looking for a place with a decent bed it serves its purpose. People in the dorm weren’t very social - Breakfast is included and is very simple (bread and jam sometimes pancakes) but decent overall! No locks on doors tho!

    Very Good

    Location was great. Staff was pleasant and helpful. Washrooms rarely had toilet paper and could have been cleaned more frequently. We stayed in a two bed room. Room was tiny; could just fit one bunk bed. Only a couple nails (hooks) for clothes. No table to set anything on. Air conditioning worked well when hydro was on. Breakfast was good, all you need to start your day. It’s a great hostel if you’re just looking for a place to crash at the end of the night.

    Basic but good hostel. Stayed in a mixed dorm - nowhere to store our big bags in our room (however small lockers provided outside the room). Dorm keys were not given out even though we requested one.

    Okay beds but 9 bed dorm was a bit cramped and dark. Shower wasn’t very clean. Water refill ran out. I did like the way breakfast was run but not much variety. It’s one of the cheaper places to stay in El Nido so not too bad for the money.
