Good friendly hostel nearby to pier and restaurants. The staff are happy to help with bookings and general info about what to do and the area. Free coffee, tea and water provided all day. Basic but good breakfast which varied slightly each day and they accommodated to my girlfriend who is vegan.

We stayed in a double room, was small but nicely decorated. Staff friendly and helped with booking mopeds, tours, bus etc. Breakfast was set every day but they changed it the 3 nights we stayed. Would go back

Special thanks to Miguel, Joshua and the rest of the staff. They made my stay extra enjoyable thanks to their true hospitality. Always hot water, coffee, and tea. Breakfast is usually very simple. Great location for Turtle Dive Shop. No relationship (pawikan means turtle!)

Great no frills hostel with a substantial Filipino breakfast in the am, comfortable beds and hot showers (towel included). The staff are able to book your tours and onward travel. Rooms are slightly cramped but are cleaned and beds made daily. Staff are fantastic here: my friend was I'll and on arrival they made him a special ginger tea. Michael went the extra mile and woke up to cook our breakfast at 5am ahead of an early ferry departure - hats off to him. Ps Wi-Fi is pretty good, told they have fibre to the property

Very helpful staff here and the room we stayed in was very clean and had just been renovated. Nice shower with good temperature and strong pressure. We had to leave at 4am but the lady made us a nice packed breakfast to take with us which was a very nice touch.
