    A super friendly and fun hostel, all the staff are so kind and eager to help. Comfortable beds and good atmosphere, would definitely like to come back again! A little far from the beach but definitely worth the journey.

    This hostel was great for one night before I had an early morning flight from puerto princesa airport (10 mins away). Bed was comfortable, shower worked okay (for the Philippines), food was okay, WiFi worked well and they had a bar with a table tennis table. I would recommend staying here if you only need a place to stay for the night before/after a flight. I didn’t sleep very well but that was completely down to the other guests in the dorm who were being really loud and inconsiderate.

    Only stayed one night - was convenient for airport. Overall all okay but nothing amazing. The common space was very humid, lights in dorms were dim and the shower was just a cold trickle or bucket bath. Staff friendly and 24hr bar if you want it! Not super partyish when I was there but I imagine it could be.

    Great value for a hostel, I only stayed here for a night because I was catching a flight the next day. Seems like a pretty chill place, however there’s not really anything within walking distance around it. Also, the bunk beds were the worst I’ve stayed in during my trip, they’re extremely small and shake at the slightest movement. I felt like I was back on an island tour as I was trying to sleep. So, just a warning, while your paying $5 for a dorm, you may not actually get any sleep.

    Crashed before a morning flight - that's the only reason you should be here. If you are not a smoker, everything and everyone who is here smokes - it smells like it. Worth it for the cost.

    Very average experience. The rooms were quite outdated and dirty. The bunk beds were not very sturdy and the WiFi was non existent. It was very cheap so if you’re spending less than 2 days it may be worth it.
