    Swinging carabao hostel is super chill! They instantly warmly greet you and show you the beds, with a complementary drink on arrival and towel was a nice touch! I was clumsy enough to split my head on the locker door. AJ was more then happy to help look after me! Can’t rate this hostel highly enough!

    lovely hostel. very chilled out vibe.. hammocks, average sowers and toilets for the Philippines, lockers, food and drink available and a shop 30m down the road. Great staff, one guy even gave me a lift on his scooter into town when my bus to Port Barton failed to pick me up..

    If you are not the type of person who loves going out at night, dines out or enjoy night life then this place is definitely for you. I am a backpacker and I mostly need accommodation just for a place to sleep. Prices for tours in El Nido are standard and they will pick you up from your accommodation. I love their hammock area and I plan to replicate it--smiles.

    The hostel is located south of El Nido so it takes some time to get to the city center. The rooms have only three walls, the fourth side of the room is just covered with a curtain so it is pretty loud during the night. The facilities are very basic but the staff is super friendly and helpful.

    The location is right on main hiway so it is very loud - we slept with ear plugs to minimize :) wifi in and out, bathrooms/shower are gross, staff was great though! Far from town and not much close to eat

    I’m terms of what you get for your money this hostel was fairly expected as it’s pretty cheap for El Nido, however for a hostel that is essentially outside the covers didn’t reach fully around the room, meaning you wake up as soon as any light comes through, or you’ll wake up from any noise (which will be the cockerel about 6 meters from the room, who is super loud from 4:30am) Unfortunately you will just get no sleep here, and transport can be quite difficult to arrange to different locations.

    As friendly as the staff were and as nice as the layout of the hostel was, my stay here was awful and I would really not recommend it. We booked 2 nights, and for 48 hours there was no wifi (but it's the philippines - we can live with that) but on only one morning did we have about 3 hours of electricity to simply charge our phones for the day, and then on our last day there was also no water. 400pesos for a hostel with no electricity, wifi and water was ridiculous!! It really needs improving!!

    Honestly shouldn’t even get 3.4. There are no walls whatsoever but there’s a rooster next door that prevented all of us from sleeping. Before I checked in I cancelled my last night since I was leaving a day earlier. This was more than 3 days in advance (per their policy) and they were not helpful in any way. When I left to check out the next day, I went through the whole ordeal again trying to cancel the last day but still paid for the two nights I did not stay. Just don’t go, seriously.

    The place was extremely loud. Did not sleep at all. Left as soon as possible. Awful. Just awful. Never again. Wifi doesn't work. Good luck to anyone that stays there.
