I had a very comfortable stay at Bulskamp Inn, which was recommended by my sister who had stayed here in 2019. As a solo female traveler, I felt very safe in the area and even more so because of the fantastic host/owner Rey. He was so helpful in navigating the area and recommending places to visit. There are breakfast options available in the adorable common area. Coffee/tea and filtered water are included.

They also help with booking boat tours and hailing tricycles for local travel to different beaches. Rooms are very cute, clean, and well-stocked with basic necessities. Location is central to nightlife and downtown shopping/restaurants, but noise was not a problem for me. They also offer earplugs if needed :) Thank you Rey and staff at Bulskamp!

Absolutely superb😍Not only the location is perfect for people who visiting El Nido but especially clean and cosy and very relaxing ambien of the place make you feel happy and relaxed. The service in here is 12 out of 10. Highly recommend stay in here for everyone who came to Philippines for exotic experience. 😍 My favourite breakfast option is hash brown with eggs and selection of fruit and small toast served with delicious marmalade.

Bulskamp is exactly the type of accommodation we seek out when we are travelling. The owner Ray is available all day to answer questions, arrange tours, book tricycles or just have a chat. He, along with all the other staff are very helpful friendly and welcoming and make you feel very comfortable. There is a beautiful communal area with comfortable seating and hammocks where guests gather for drinks and travel chats or reading and relaxing. This area is the heart of the hotel and what sets it apart from most other accommodation in town.
There is a great choice of breakfast options and a good selection of very well priced drinks available throughout the day and night.
The rooms are spotlessly clean with aircon, fan, tv and safe and they are serviced daily.
We initially booked for three nights but the hotel atmosphere and beauty of El Nido made us stay for longer.
Highly recommended

My wife and I recently spent 3 nights at Bulskamp inn in El Nido and loved it! It's located right in town so everywhere is within walking distance or an easy trike ride; plus there are great restaurants scattered throughout town so there's a wide range of options. Since the town is located right on El Nido Bay that's also just a short walk away! The Inn has beautiful, quiet, and peaceful rooms that are very clean and comfortable. The staff at the Inn are very friendly and are happy to help in any way they can to insure a the guestshave a great stay. We loved the breakfast and El Nido is our favorite place in Palawan so far. Next time we come to Palawan we will definitely make more time for El Nido and we look forward to staying at the Bulskamp Inn again!

We had a really great stay here, the hostel is right in the centre of town with lots of restaurants, shops, ATMs and the beach all within a few minutes. Rey and his staff were so kind and friendly, they arranged for us two boat day trips with the company Umi which were fantastic. They also helped us out with a transfer down to Puerto Princesca, laundry and scooter rental. Other reviews have mentioned the noisy hostel next door but this didn’t really bother us. The hostel provide free earplugs and it wasn’t loud late into the night, we had no trouble sleeping. If you are looking for an affordable stay in the centre of El Nido then look no further.

My boyfriend and I stayed 5 days in Bulskamp Inn and we went with excited but with no real idea of the place or of what our stay would be like. It was absolutely incredible- we really had the best time. Ray and everyone working there were so lovely (and we loved their little cat mikay) the room was perfect and the place was lovely to just relax in. Breakfast was good but the best part was how helpful Ray was in helping us to organise so many amazing activities. Snorkelling, tours (we did tour A), renting motorcycles, kayaking and getting around was all made so easy by him! It’s the most beautiful place and our stay couldn’t have been better!

nice lady who works there every day provided good customer service, nice to have the tea and coffee until 10am. Lovely vibe in the bar/restaurant area which all the rooms join on to but can therefore hear from the room. They quieten down at 10pm but woke from the noise each morning (not particularly loud but just people about/setting up). Rooms are tiny, you know that when booking but the bathroom was the smallest I’ve ever been in, couldn’t fit both of us in.

Stayed here for 4 nights with my husband. Hotel is really well located near the beach and all the bars/restaurants.

Staff are extremely helpful (especially Rey who was amazing for our entire stay) helping with transport, scooter hire and laundry services too.

Would recommend!

Had a fantastic stay. Rey, Tin Tin and the rest of the staff were very accommodating, helpful in every way possible. The breakfast was maybe the best in El Nido. They arranged transportation, activities etc. right there.
Definitely would go back

Great service from a lovely staff team, very welcoming and always happy to help. Room was perfect for what we needed. Nice lobby area to relax in. Breakfast was good. Great location in the middle of El Nido Town, saved us spending money on Tuk-Tuks.

The inn is in town. El nido is tiny, but this inn is also only a few minutes from the beach. You can book tours from this or any hotel or travel agency.
