    Really friendly staff, always happy to help! Rooms were very clean, aircon, and beds were very comfy. Breakfast included is a basic Filipino breakfast, but is nice enough. Location is perfect, surrounded by restaurants/ bars, and beach is 2 mins away. Would definitely recommend!

    Our family had a good stay here. The staff are very accommodating. They can also help you with the tour packages and transfers. The place is just 2-3 minutes walk to the beach area. They clean the rooms everyday. We enjoyed playing "sungka" in the common area. We only had one instance that we didn't have water due to lack of supply but they attended to it immediately. Overall, I would recommend this to people who are looking for a budget-friendly place in El Nido.

    Don’t let the outside fool you this place is great!! It is very basic, but the staff are so kind & helpful, & attentive with bookings! With a generous home cooked breakfast! Adjustable AC in rooms so not too cold :) 4 bed dorms are tiny but its all you need as you’ll be out & about on tours! No lockers in rooms but several in the main lobby/kitchen area if 1 is free. 20Pwater refills! En-suite bathroom small, no soap (bring your own!) but there’s a bathroom on the main floor you can use too :)

    This place is a little slightly hidden gem that you shouldn’t miss!! It was one of the nicest places I stayed in El Nido! The staff are amazing always happy to help and always with a smile they make it their mission to make your stay special and offer advice and are never pushy! Manuel makes amazing jewellery too that you should definitely buy, I love my bracelets. The breakfast is good and the rooms are small but well kept with a great shower and bathroom. I highly recommend! Thank you!

    Basic but all you need. We got a free upgrade on check in to a private which was awesome! Very lovely staff, decent free breakfast. Pretty bad showers and no social space but great for a good nights sleep!

    Pros: cheap, includes breakfast, great location, warm shower with nice showerhead, toilet paper and flush toilets, comfy pillows, fan and AC. Cons: next to techno club so very loud at night, dirty, shoes left outside with no protection so shoes and feet get dirty, bugs in room, sheets with stains, messed up our reservation, staff was friendly bit not very useful.

    Not sure what the other reviews on here were smoking or whether its changed a lot recently but the hostel wasn't great. Smell of damp in the rooms, no locks on cupboards, not great toilets and host itself was a bit run down a d void of life. Also theres a massive rave next door playing booming music into the night. 9.2 rating? Hmm. Staff were friendly enough though and breakfast included was ok. Aircon in rooms nice enough and lock on main door. Wifi is rubbish though. Better hostels nearer sea.
