Property Description

Stashed within the peaceful part of Dumaguete City, with bamboos & mango trees kissing the breeze of Flying Fish boutique hostel, emerged an organic offspring of modernism from the ruins and halls of an old ancestral house, complimented with spiffy mid-century furniture and neo-nostalgic hipster vibe––a perfect culture hive for wanderlusts from different walks of life & adventurous locals across the islands of the Philippines.

The Flying Fish is a haven of comfort, cleanliness, convenience, design, and the renowned Filipino hospitality all rolled into the doorstep while you jump off for your next adventure.

You can see it through the reclaimable scraps from the past, embedded on our architectural furnishings that we care about a sustainable environment. You can even taste it from our vegan and/or nutritious delectable food options right by our very own Nom Bar & Cantina restaurant that we care about our guests’ healthy choices. But most importantly, we care about fresh linens and the privacy which you all came for. Thus, all dorms have the standard amenities: private lockers, spacious clean & comfy beds–– outlets, and a private shelf & reading lamp on each. We also have comfortable private rooms cover extra convenience for you and your pack; a personal bathroom; and a bigger space in case you need more “Me time.”

Located within 2 kilometers away from the city's airport and two major sea ports, The Flying Fish is rooted in a strategic position where you can get a piece of everything during your stay: various health and wellness spa; beachside restaurants & bars; and Dumaguete’s bustling downtown area which can be a 15-minute walk to get your bearings going.

    An amazing hostel. So beautiful. Dorm rooms and showers/toilets are great. Only a short pedicab ride to the downtown area. Has a great restaurant. Staff were very friendly. I've stayed here a couple of times now.

    Wasn't able to stay for 2-nights there so asked if they could refund me but wasn't allowed so :( bad experience as I was refunded before on a different hotel when I prompted them upon arrival that I couldn't stay for my last few nights. Anyway, just so everybody knows that it's not all the same in all hostels so better tell them beforehand if you plan to shorten your trip. Overall, trip was nice in Dumaguete. Best place to stay in terms of the facilities. Very aesthetic place! Very chill.

    This was such a nice hostel to stay at! The rooms and facilities were very nice. The restaurant and the bar was great and they have a good happy hour deals and a lovely acoustic night. The staff was also very helpful when my friend and I were planning the logistics of a day trip to Valencia to see the waterfalls. When I'm back in Dumaguete, I'll be staying here again.

    Lovely hostel. Clean, smart, restaurant on site with veggie and vegan options. Went for a tour to the volcanic lakes and hot springs with the resident driver. It Was a good day out. A bit of a walk into the town (20/30 mins) but lots of tricycles to take you there.

    We had a lovely stay here- the staff are so friendly and helpful, the rooms are spacious, comfortable and clean. They helped us organise a snorkelling trip to Apo Island and to the waterfalls- their tricycle driver, Kuya Guyz, gave us a great tour!

    This hostel is very clean and stylish, the beds were comfy and spacious and the communal area was also pleasant. BUT this place doesn’t really offer that much of a social backpacker vibe.

    Awk this hostel is good. I have to say if it had a pool I would have stayed a week. Does good wee trips to the turtles and the sand bar. Nice modern hostel and there’s a wee restaurant around the corner called falling coconut! So yum. We rented a bike from them for 2 days which was also great. Other than one bike broke, but sure, we got it back in the end. Rooms are good size and clean.

    The staff here are amazing - so friendly and willing to help you out with travel plans, activities and anything else you need. The cafe/bar does really good food and cocktails - happy hour is great, and acoustic night on Friday and Saturday night. They stop music at about 10 so there isn’t too much noise when you want to sleep. The bathroom is basic but clean, beds are clean and comfortable. It is a fair way from the city centre, but staff will help you organise a trike to get you there.
