The first impression was Wowwww.. Totally cool vibes and such a happy place.. A pool table with few bean bags sprawled around, an open bar where locals & travellers were just chilling & connecting over drinks & food.. The staff was warm and very welcoming, instantly we forgot our disastrous travel and were happy to be there.. We checked in to our room, which was well equipped with amenities and loved the look of the room very raw yet comforting.. They have various accommodation types.. We booked the private room with air-con & private bath.. After quickly freshening up, we headed downstairs for a drink at the bar Hub, totally loved the mood here.. The serve some amazing food as well.. With close proximity to the main street and Big Lagoon, meet the Frendz tribe make friends and connect with like minded people from over the world.. They have a rooftop bar with a pool.. take a dip with chilled beer as u watch the sun set and groove in to the beats of in-house DJ.. We totally loved our stayed here and highly recommend not missing Frendz Hostel when in El Nido..

Stayed in this hostel for 3 nights and loved it! It is on the expensive side but the location, atmosphere and facilities are great. The drinks and food in the lower ground bar are also really delicious and I'd recommend

My friends and I picked this hostel for our stay in El Nido. The hosts at the reception were very friendly and accommodating, they didn’t hesitate to assist us-1st timers- for alp our enquiries and questions. We booked a tour through the happy tour desk in the same location and it was also a great service. On our departure day, we booked our transportation to PPS airport and they were very delighted to assist us with it. The room was amazing and the rooftop pool has a nice view but what was outstanding is the service and the smiles of the hosts who amazed us. Shout out to Princess and Ervin. Definitely booking again here if I go back to El Nido or the other branch in Boracay.

Had a great time, awesome dorms with privacy curtains and charging inside, space to dry stuff, awesome pool with view on top. We also did tour A with them and it was probably the best day tour we did in Palawan as the guys running it made it so much fun and helped out with photos, music and those who were solo travellers.

I visited el nido in January and I found this place one evening. I didn’t stay here only for food & drinks. Cocktails are great and very cheap especially happy hour! 2 for about £3.50! Staff were great especially Nathan, Khate & jonas! Their customer service was great and they really took great care of me and my friends. I own a restaurant in London and if I had a Restauant there I would definitely have Khate & Nathan in either a management or a host position because I went for breakfast one morning while they wasn’t there and it was a bit of a mess and the customer service wasn’t the same at all! These guys really made my time there special. So thank you
