    One of the best hostels I've stayed at. Too many positives to list them all: friendly, outgoing staff, comfortable beds, great lounge area, chill surfer vibe, and best of all--lots of shared meals! I imagine it's overlooked because there aren't many recent reviews, but don't let that dissuade you!!

    Super chill place in Baler! Nice staff, you’ll definitely find a friend in ate Via (Bea?) She helped us book a tricycle to tour us around and makes sure you have what you need and are comfortable in the place. Rooms are clean and cool despite not having ACs. Really worth the price. Lots of good restaurants nearby, surf school just in front. Not beach front but just one street out. Chill locals and patrons. They organize events for local surfers and has nice weekend parties. +++++ recommend

    Nice spot near Sabang. Can organise surfing lessons through the hostel, the instructors were patient with us newbies. They assisted with transfers to the bus terminal early morning. Great place to stay in Baler. I'd be happy to stay here again

    Consistent with the other branches of Circle Hostel in Luzon. Staff are kind and helpful, there are good areas for socializing and relaxing. The location for this branch isn't that ideal - the restaurants are around a 5-10 minute walk away, which doesn't sound bad until you feel the scorching weather outside. Room can get stuffy, since they put up walls around the rooms here unlike in La Union. The only electrical outlets were in the common area, so bring a portable charger.

    Perhaps my standards are too high after travelling and visiting many hostels around the world. This hostel is basic and needs more cleaning and organisation. The staff are friendly and Balers natural beauty is a big draw card. This is one of the better and cheapest accomodation in area. Baler has a lot to learn from Bali and other surfing Mecca’s.

    My 4 Dorm was super narrow. Space for two instead of for. Lockers provided. Floor in the main area consisted of just some stones. Hard to walk in and out. Noisy bar opposite where loud karaoke was every night on. Might be a fun party hostel when full but overall would not stay again. A bit a away from the center as well
