    So nice we stayed twice! We had such a good time and the staff were so helpful that we came back and stayed again after our trip around Palawan. The 24h bar/restaurant was a dream and the WiFi was the best we’d had in a long time!!!

    No locks on dorm doors and beds could use curtains and other guests were quite loud and intrusive after late night drinks. Staff are welcoming and friendly Bar area is nice to chill round

    Location was great because it’s close to the airport. So as a stopover it was fine, As previous reviews power cut out and WiFi isn’t great. Good base to do the underground river tour. No atmosphere at all hostel was dead slightly off season but it was empty. Facilities were pretty basic I booked a private room which looked like it wa a built in the 60s and not been updated since. No hot water. Staff were great tho very helpful

    Really awful security. Anyone can walk in anytime and get into any of the rooms- no keys whatsoever. We booked a 6 bed, you had to walk 'through' the 20 bed to get to it, aka down a step. There was a partition wall (a piece of wood) between the two, that didn't even go to the ceiling, so the noise reduction you're paying for by being in a 6 bed goes out the window. We had our laundry done and most of the clothes were still wet when we got it back. Would stay here for 2 nights max.

    Myself and my group booked 5beds in a 6bed dorm and at check-in were told the other bed had been blocked so we could enjoy our privacy - which we were happy with. In checking into the dorm room, it was not a “private dorm” but was in the same overall space as another dorm room which meant we were disturbed in the night! There was no locks on the entrance to the dorm rooms and we weren’t given a key! The bar and restaurant had a good atmosphere but it wasn’t as close to the airport as expected

    This hostel is really cheap but you get what you pay for. The beds are very short so pretty uncomfortable for western travellers. There were two sockets for the entire 6 bed dorm and they are so dodgy that the plugs fall out. The wifi is only available in the dining area and in the evenings it is almost impossible to use. When we arrived there was no toilet paper or hand soap for the toilet, I was kindly given paper but told I had to pay for soap. Its grim that they serve food and no soap!
