    The place to go to if you want to see the whale sharks: you will be the first ones to go out in the sea. I can't insist on how amazing the staff is, they were so helpful and nice!

    Great hostel to see the whale sharks as you will be the first boat out. I was the only person stay at the time but the owner and her family are lovely, room is clean and they will help you with anything you need.

    Great Hosts. We arrived & were shown to our hut, it was clean & basic as expected. There was a fan, lights, socket and a mosquito net. The hut isnt soundproof so you can hear all the noises outside which wasnt an issue for us. Location wise it is the closest you can get to the briefing centre & the hostel got us on the first boat out which was incredible. There are a few restarants around. The shared bathrooms are clean but did run out of water on me. Would stay again in the same circumstances.

    We took the first boat to do snorkeling with whale shark. This is the most important for us. The room is very basic, but ok for stay one night.

    The hostel is the perfect location for swimming with whale sharks. The staff were extremely helpful and ensured that we were on the first boat! However, there was no WiFi or running water, but was worth it to be the first boat out!

    Perfect for a one day stay for whale shark watching. It's right next door to it - and the staff organise everything for you, even ensuring you're the first in the water.

    Only Good For watching Whale Sharks. You are literally the FIRST BOAT out. I think the owner must part run the show. but no AC and was no running water to even wash your hands or flush the Toilet. Do not stay more than 1 night in oslob or you will be bored out of your mind!

    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.

    Way too expensive for this kind of hostel... No Moskito nets over the bed. Got bitten so hard No mirror in the bathroom No WiFi, at least only for 2-4 hours, for this price they should make WiFi available for the whole day. Location isn’t that beautiful in the low season.
