Fantastic hostel, everything you would expect. Perfect location for whale shark swimming, would definitely recommend booking that with Ken and he also took us to Tumalog falls after. Ken was a great host and made the whole stay.

Went to Oslob to swim with the whale sharks. Two families, total 9 pax. Needed a place to stay for the night, so we could start early at the whale place the Next morning. This place is perfect.
Small but nice. Clean and easy parking in front.
2 minute walk to the whale place. Supervisor Mr. Ken was super service minded. Arranged so instead of queing at 04:00 in the morning, and wait for 4-5hours, he booked us a swimming at 07:00. Could not be better.
Many thanks Mr Ken.
Saved us some sleep and time in que.

Next door is a restaurant.
I really recommend Way Shack if you want a good experience of the whale shark swimming.

I love this place. The rooms are very clean and cozy. We were very comfortable here during our stay because the atmosphere here is so relaxing. The color combinations of the rooms are just adorable. And the price is just right. The hand-painted murals are simply beautiful. It gives an ambiance of blissful serenity to the place. The staff is also very friendly and accommodating. Try their Chinese dimsum. You will definitely love it. I’m coming back here for sure.

Must-Try. The Hostel is cozy and very near at BUTANDING watching. I love the paintings on the wall. The room and place is so relaxing after your long travel. You can make your tummy happy with their dim sum restaurant. You can also chill at their mini bar with your favorite cold drinks.

So accommodating staff.

Recommended for you.

I stayed for just one night in a private double room with my family. My kids love the place especially the colorful designs of the rooms.They also assisted us with swimming with the whale shark experience. The hostel was priced at a really good rate. I have no complaints at all. I have the perfect stayed.
