Property Description

Exploring is recommended in Palawan and Green Turtle is a great place to start. Located at San Jose New Market ? the best to understand local culture and the real way of island living. And just across is the San Jose Bus Terminal, the main transport hub of Palawan ? the best to quickly catch bus and van schedule to northern and southern destinations on the island.

Green Turtle is a 24+ beds basic accommodation. All dorm rooms are upstairs, airconditioned, have comfortable beds, secured big lockers, and reasonably clean toilets and showers. We have a hang-out area for you to meet like-minded travellers so bring drinks to share at night and make new friends.

Green Turtle Backpackers Guesthouse is a favourite airport stopover for backpackers and solo travellers in Puerto Princesa. We are certainly a budget-friendly and time-saving choice.

The hostel wasn’t close to anything, the staff seemed confused about everything, and the bunk beds didn’t even have lights or outlets. There isn’t much to do in puerto princesa besides being close to the airport so it’s fine just as a quick stopover I suppose.

When I got into bed I realise my bed hadn’t been changed from the previous person and was covered in their hairs, this also happened to my friends bed! The bathrooms are so small you can’t sit on toilet seat properly.
