Property Description

Green Turtle Backpackers Guesthouse is a great option for budget-conscious travellers looking for a convenient and comfortable stay in Puerto Princesa. It is located just a short walk from the San Jose New Market, making it easy to catch transport to other parts of the island. It is also just a jeepney ride from the airport gate, or you can take a fixed-price taxi from the airport arrival area.

Guests at Green Turtle can enjoy basic but comfortable accommodation with air-conditioned dorm rooms, clean toilets and showers, thick mattresses, and bug-free beds. They also have access to large, secure lockers. In the evening, guests can relax on the balcony hangout area and meet like-minded travellers while enjoying inexpensive beer for sale. Breakfasts are also available to order in the morning.

Green Turtle also offer an outgoing transport service to El Nido and Port Barton, two of the best tourist destinations, for a reasonable price. They will be picked up by the van from the hostel reception at various available time slots in the morning.

All of the staff at Green Turtle are friendly, helpful, and always willing to go the extra mile to ensure guests have a great stay. They can also help guests book a low-cost tour to the Puerto Princesa Subterranean River, but the booking must be settled in the reception area on the night before the day of the tour.

Things to do: Just a 10-15-minute walk away is Balayong People's Park and Sports Complex, which is a great place to visit at night for some cheap and fun activities. There are food stalls, a night market, and a stage where live music is often played. The park is also great for night photography.

There are a number of restaurants and shops within walking distance of the hostel, including Julie's Bakeshop and Grocery, Ka Inato, Nokinocs, DJ Balcony Bar, and Go-Land, Massway, and Andrew's Supermarkets. Robinsons Mall can also be reached on foot within 30 minutes.

Green Turtle is a favourite airport stopover for budget-conscious travellers looking for a convenient and comfortable place to stay in Puerto Princesa. It is a time-saving choice for both backpackers and solo travellers who are looking for a place to stay near the airport.

The bed was comfy and we got a decent night of sleep, however the AC was not working properly therefore it was warm, the curtains were too short so privacy was medium, no towels so bring your own and coffee was not complimentary. Difficult to find a good place to eat in the evening. Relatively close to the airport.

Great quiet little hostel on the outskirts of Puerto Princesa. The ladies at the reception were so helpful and welcoming, they organised the underground river tour and transport to El Nido for us at a great price! The hostel was super clean and the beds were very comfy. Would recommend if you want a good nights sleep!
