We stayed here for 3 nights in a double room with private bathroom. The room was clean, tidy and modern. The air conditioning was good and shower decent too. The hostel is in a good location and close to everything you need. The hostel organised our tours, scooter rental and ferry tickets. The staff here were friendly and helpful. We had a Philippine breakfast included too and it was good. Toast, tea and coffee available for free too. Drinking water for free refill of your own bottle. This hostel was a good value place to stay and we would recommend it to others.

Bed was very comfy. I didn't think i was in a hostel. Bathroom isn't grand but it does its work. Bryan and the rest of the staff are very helpful and friendly. Just a bit of walk to places to eat but that's alright. It's a bit away from streets that could get busy. :)

Location - The hostel is located at the central part of El Nido. Food establishments and tour providers are just few steps away. Also near the pickup/dropoff point of island hopping boats. Room - It's budget-friendly especially if you're a group of 4. The dorm-type room can accommodate 4 people and it only costs P2000/night. - The AC worked well and I had a comfortable sleep. - The dorm-type room may be small for a group of 4, but this is not really a problem since we were outside most of the time and we only used it when we needed to sleep or take a bath. Amenities - They offer unlimited free instant coffee and drinking water. - Pretty surprised that the room comes with a hot shower. Food - The free breakfast is decent enough specially if your group is too lazy to go

The location was excellent. The wharf for the island hopping tours, and the beachfront bars and restaurants are just a few meters walk. It is centrally-located, yet is away from the chaos and noise of El Nido nightlife. The room we got was excellent. The beds were comfortable and tidied up every day. The towels may be replaced as requested. The air-conditioning was great, and the generator set automatically starts up during outages. The facilities are also good. Breakfast is served everyday, and bread and coffee are available all-day. The hostel itself is quiet. What makes this hostel outstanding among all the accommodations I've been to here and abroad, is the friendliness and excellent customer service of the owner and all of the staff. They were exceedingly hospitable,

Location: Central to El Nido Town Proper but away from the noisy bars and restaurants. Facilities: Very clean. Comfortable, soft bedding. Stable bunk beds. HOT WATER SHOWERS! Great air conditioning. Reading lights. Outlets in every bunk. Lockers! Generator power during outages! Staff: Exceedingly friendly. Value: Includes breakfast, all day hot drinks. Atmosphere: Quiet. Only a few rooms. Great stay! Owner(s) should buy the property next door and expand $$$!
