Insanely good stay! Bryce, Recel and everyone at the hostel looked after me from first contact. Organised an affordable taxi from puerto princesa airport and onwards, a van to Port Barton.
Food and drink available at affordable prices so you don’t need to travel. Super clean, beds have curtains, AC and lockers.
Beach is a short walk away - 15-20 min but you can usually get a lift from the locals. The beach is amazing to chill and surf. Really fun 2-3ft waves.
Couldn’t recommend more!

Situated at the crossroad that leads beach enthusiasts and hikers towards Nagtabon and Talaudyong, this friendly resort is the perfect place to stay if you don’t want to be commuting an hour back and forth from Puerto Princesa.
I can not stress the word FRIENDLY enough. Most places make you feel like a stranger in a strange place, but here you instantly feel as if the owners and staff are your long time friends. The restaurant and bar provides a great refreshing scene for hikers and travelers to share their adventures with one another. The food offers a refreshing combination of Asian, American, and even European dishes.
One suggestion: call and book in advance, because this place is quickly becoming popular and from time to time is fully booked.
Also: rent a car or motorcycle. You’ll enjoy the freedom of your travels in this beautiful ocean and Mountain View area much more.

This hostel was a lot of fun surrounded by good people and good vibes. down at the amazing beach at dusk I drove my scooter wheel over some barbwire :( I had only just met Bryce on the beach briefly, but when he saw my dilemma he hoisted my motorcycle into his truck and we went to get a late night fix with some local mechanics. this was a princely move and remains as a shimmering memory of service. staying at the hostel was like a great dream. there are lots of super boardgames, the rooms are comfy and I lucked out with making friends with several awesome travellers as well. overall this hostel kicks ass. if you have a way down the steep hill to the coast the beach there is definitely the best closest beach to the Capital/Puerto Princessa. easy to spend a few days making your self at home. thanks to all the great people and elements at B&R hostel! may your existence last many a moon!! a safe haven that welcomes many!!

Absolutely wonderful hostel!! Can’t say enough good things about my stay there. Friendly, clean, great food and AC was fantastic! If you’re thinking of staying here you definitely should. The incredibly beautiful Nagtabon beach is just a short walk away! Rent scooters and enjoy a day there. Don’t miss out on this gem of a hostel! The staff is incredibly helpful and kind. Thank you Rezel and Rose!!!

A friendly Filipina/Dutch couple opened up this hostel about 6 months ago and is doing rather well. It is locates a few minutes from one of the best beaches on the island, Nagtabon Beach. It is on the left just before you go up the hill towards the beach, you cannot miss the sign. There are native buildings with an 8 bed dorm at the moment but some bungalows will be constructed in the future. They have the coldest beer at their bar and serve a limited menu including breakfast. Also there is table football to entertain you. There are several showers and toilets, 5 of each, i think. If you are staying here it is best to rent a motorbike from Puerto Princesa as there is the beautiful Talaudyong Beach to visit about 10 kms after the hostel. Nagtabon Beach is just 1.5 kms over the hill. From here it is also possible to make motorbike trips to Sabang, Mauyon River, and several other places. A great place to stay if you want to get out of town.

I stayed here for three nights and it was the best experience! I stayed in the dorm which offers aircon, privacy curtains, security lockers and very comfy beds. If you need a good night’s sleep, this is the place! I dare to say that the hostel offers the highest standard in Nagtabon, particularly the bathroom facilities. Modern, super clean and with hot showers.

The restobar serves cheap drinks and very good food! As food options are limited in Nagtabon, this place is a lifesaver if you crave those pancakes for breakfast or a yummy pasta dish for dinner. The common area at the restobar is cozy and very sociable. The owners are the most helpful and social people! I will always remember the fun conversations we had during star sprinkled nights. =) Can’t wait to come back! Keep up the good work!

I was travelling through the Philippines with friends and we stumbled across this little gem in Palawan! The hosts are so amazing, friendly, accommodating and were always going above and beyond to ensure everyone was having a great stay. The rooms, bathroom facilities, restaurant and bar are all well maintained and well run. We had an awesome time with other travellers playing card every night, sharing travel stories and of course enjoying the incredible home cooked meals and fab cocktails!

This Hostel was our first place to stay in Palawan Island. My friend has been there before and he came back to B&R. Owners are so kind and helpfull. Even the beach is behind one hill its not problem to go there. You can rent a bike or ask a ride from Price.

Dorm room is clean and its in good condition. Toilets are clean. This place almost feel like cottage because there is so silent around the place. I warmly recommend.

I loved everything about my stay in B&R hostel. The hosts made us feel like home, the food was amazing and the place itself had everything you could ask for - would defo come back again. :)
Bryce was always willing to help, always chatting and keeping us occupied - since we weren’t too lucky with the weather. Recel’s humour and great cooking added up too.
A place definately more for social people, as there is always something going on in the chill area.
10/10.
