    Great hostel, great location, great atmosphere (do not listen to naysayers below). They had TV so I could watch basketball finals. They are right next to the beach where everyone departs to watch Whale Sharks. Our boat was the first one out! The staff is super friendly. They even helped me figure out where to go next.

    Sharky Hostel is located right next to the Oslob Whale Shark Center, if you are planning to go Whale Shark Watching this is a great spot to spend the night. The staff was very helpful and kind with us.

    Sharkys is ideal for a one night stay to see the whale sharks as you get to go out in the first boat before the crowds. However the hostel room is basic and there were ants in the beds. Also a really loud pet lizard that was croaking all night kept us awake which was annoying.

    If you just want somewhere cheap to stay to see the whale sharks then this place ticks the box. However, as a hostel goes this was one of the worst I’ve stayed in. My bed (and I think most others) was dirty, with feathers, dirt, dead bugs etc. There is no bed sheet provided. Bathroom was ok and at least there are lockers for your valuables. Final let down was yes, they have a kitchen however what they don’t mention is that you have to pay 200 pesos if you want to use the cooker. CRAZY.

    The family that owns it is extremely welcoming and helpful. However, there is no running water for a shower - had to use a bucket. There are not any restaurants around that serve anything other than all meat and/or only Filipino food. There was one other lady staying there and we went swimming with the whale sharks together. There was no “atmosphere” whatsoever...which was the most disappointing part because I stayed in a hostel (outside of my comfort zone) to meet fellow travelers.

    The only reason I could suggest to stay here is to do the Whale shark tour as you’ll be on the first boat out to see them. Sleeping area is open as room is not attached so it’s open to all bugs etc (however bed was clean). Staff member on registration was rude and clearly wasn’t interested in talking to us. Shower and toilet are adequate. The WiFi didn’t work at any point of our stay. Water is not free. Only stay for one night, do the Whale shark tour and then move on. Oslob is very quiet.

    Nothing to do near the hostel, pretty much no vegetarian food in the whole place. Wifi did not work at all for most of my stay, the staff didn't really care about helping their clients, mostly just layed in chairs and when you asked for help they looked very bothered by it. Bathroom was very simplistic and no mirror. No real atmosphere at all. Surprisingly expensive for what you get.
