    Great hostel to stay in to swim with the whale sharks. Don’t stay here if you’re not doing the whale sharks tour because you will get woken up at 4/5 and there is absolutely nothing to do in Oslob apart from the tour which will finish around 7. One night here is all you need, 100% worth it. Most incredible experience ever!

    This really is just a hostel to see the whale sharks but it is so worth it being the first boat out in the morning was incredible and worth the basic dorm room. I would recommend only staying a night here as there really is nothing to do here as it is so far out of oslob. We even struggled to find dinner. However the whole experience was amazing I would recommend staying here if you want to see the Sharks

    Go for the whalesharks! You will be the first boat out there when you stay at sharky. You don't need more than one night.

    They ensure ours is the first boat in the water. Simple basic place right next to the diving centre.

    Great if you’re seeing the whale sharks, literally right next to it. The family who owns it is so helpful with all other travel plans but there’s not much to do around the hostel or in Oslob in general. Good for one night! (& the WiFi barely works)

    Hostel itself is nothing to rave about, however, the lady who runs it works hard to make sure you are the first ones in the water to see the whale sharks. This completely made my experience in Bohol. Thank-you!

    Very Good

    Stay here to be first boat out for whale sharks. Don’t stay here if you plan to get multiple restful nights of sleep as the noise from roosters, barking dogs, and people is loud and disturbing. The staff is very kind and goes out of their way to ensure you are first boat. Almost everything around the hostel closes at 2:30-3pm so you’ll need to go into town after that. The tricycle ride should cost 10-20 pisos/ea, not the 50 they try if you’re a foreigner.the staff at the hostel taught me that.

    Good location if you want to do the whale sharks which since having done this I’d suggest not bothering. WiFi doesn’t work. If there are people talking in the common area then everyone will hear it as all the dorms are under the same barn style building so you may not get the early night you need.

    Would only stay here one night, not much to do in Cebu. You could rent snorkelling equipment and do it yourself. Good location very close to the whale sharks. Make sure to rent bike and see the waterfalls. Shower didn’t work properly and the rooms have to ac and no personal fans.
