Property Description

New Villa Sandra Guesthouse is the first backpackers' place and the only eco-friendly hostel in Malapascua. It is run by Marryrose & Serioja Glorie and their friendly staff.

The guesthouse houses 4 cozy native bungalows - all with shared bathrooms, private balcony rooms with private bathrooms, dormitories with shared bathrooms, and a beautiful restaurant that serves delicious veggie/vegan options, Thai food and some savory Filipino food at reasonable prices! Once you're in the guesthouse, you'd be getting the feels of how the locals live on the island. We also have a chill-out hammock area upstairs, a deck view, a balcony lounge area, and an access to the rooftop so you can enjoy the best sunset view on the island!

We also invite everyone who wants to be a part of a positive change on the Island. We organize a feeding program on the weekends with the kids on the Island. You can volunteer and hangout with the kids on the island, teach them artwork, how to play musical instruments, environmental awareness, basic English, and we get to play fun games with them and enjoy a delicious snack after!

We aspire to provide good vibes, good energy and an amazing experience to our fellow travelers.

We have been awarded five stars by Trip Advisor from happy backpackers reviews.

Great location, nice staff. Bathrooms were very small and didn’t work well so didn’t feel as clean in this space.
