The Circle Hostel is a chain of budget friendly eco-hostels in the Philippines. We want to be a sanctuary for the artsy and the adventurous where people can express themselves freely among each other and on our walls. Because at the Circle Hostel, there are no strangers. Our bunk-houses are all fan-cooled and in dormitory style. You can opt between an all-female dorm or the co-ed one. Or go for an ergonomic hammock with a built-in mosquito netting. Our bathrooms have hot/cold showers and out toilets have bidets. Not too shabby for a hostel! ;) Breakfast is a simple meal of fresh bread, spreads and bananas.

The people are the highlight of this trip. They offer good company even though you just met. Surfing is also fun, they will teach you even if you don't really know how to swim, gotta trust that they'll help you.

Went in at 7, reserved 2 hammocks for the night for a friend and I, and the place was really good for it's price. The hammocks had built in mosquito nets on them too. Free water, simple breakfast, and everyone was chill about everything and understanding. Definitely coming back

Booking a place to crash for a night was really my concern. Since i haven't experienced sleeping in such arrangement and i dont intend to stay on bed the whole time, made me consider this place. The Circle Hostel is a place for backpackers and individuals on a tight budget or
