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.

When I learned that we were staying a hostel, I didn't expect much. But this place surely surpassed my expectations. The beds were okay and adequately clean. There's a privacy curtain and a mosquito net on each bed. The place is well ventilated although I think it would be hot

Didn't have any trouble reserving the beds, the website was very easy to navigate. FD called us a day prior to confirm we are coming, advised us to make sure to arrive early at the terminal as the lines sometimes can be so bad. Upon arrival she welcomed us so warmly (she isn't

Cool artsy place but not so cool in terms of cleanliness. Cobwebs are everywhere; you'll regret it if you're placed in the top most bunk bed. You'll be the one to set up your own bunk bed and the staff won't even bother checking if your mattresses are still okay. The pillows are
