my sisters and i stayed here after our trip in Boracay. we arrived late in the afternoon, and upon checking in, the staff was very helpful in carrying our luggage and assisting us to our rooms. upon seeing our room, we were all surprised to see how big it was. its a real family room. i can say that its even bigger than most houses in Manila. it has 6 beds, 1 toilet and 2 baths, a small living room, and dining area. it gave us a very homey feeling. that night, we decided to go to sampaguita gardens and the staff was very helpful about getting a tricycle that would help us get there, wait until we are done and bring us back to the hotel. all that for only a cheap price. while waiting for the driver, we wanted to buy something to nibble so they opened their bakery for us (it was already closed then since its past 7 pm). the breakfast they serve is very good too.. and they delivered it to our room we felt like kings and queens. overall, i would say, i had a very great experience with this hotel. superb service, nice rooms, friendly and helpful staff, sumptuous breakfast. i highly recommend this place and would definitely stay here again.

I went to Ati-Atihan Festival Hostel last December 2010 and had a great time. The place is quite hidden behind a busy street because it's near the town's market. Needless to say, I had no problems buying food or looking for transportation. They told me there was a near-by mall but I haven't really gone there as I had all I needed already. There was also a quaint food shop beside the lobby where I grabbed a few bites before heading out.

Best parts: staff is excellent and the place is wi-fi ready.

We stayed for one night in Kalibo in this hostel. The stuff was nice, the price was reasonable and the room seamed poor but clean. But late at night we found huge cockroaches and mice right in the room, which came back later again into our room. For those who will stay here later - don't eat coockies in the bed, they will come to you!

For the first three nights of my stay with my boss, we were given the big room on the ground floor. Room was very nice since it is very spacious (heck, even the CR is very spacious!) so you don't get the feeling of being cramped up. Plus, it is so warm and cozy so you're guaranteed a good night's rest. Food is also very good, and they have a mini store filled with Aklan's best delicacies so you don't have to go far to see what the province has to offer in terms of food.

Now, let's talk about location. The hostel is very near to the town plaza (which looks very good especially at night) and the town's mall (Gaisano). It is also near to public transport terminals to the different towns of Aklan, so if you're planning to explore Aklan (especially Boracay Island, which is about 2 1/2 hours away if you use the terminal from Kalibo-Caticlan) but want to stay in Kalibo, this hostel is definitely the place to be. Actually, if you are on a tight budget, I would readily recommend this hostel not only because of its rates but because Kalibo:
- is situated in the center of Aklan's different towns,
- holds one of the province's airports, so having to tug along all of your luggage to the hostel is not a worry (the hostel is 20 minutes away from Kalibo Int'l. Airport), and
- is plain BEAUTIFUL! Did I mention that Kalibo has some nice tourist attractions of their own? Some of those are the Bakhawan Ecopark, Sampaguita Gardens, and the Tigayon Hill. For me, I was lucky since I was at the province at the time of its Ati-Atihan festival so there were many festivities at the plaza.

The hostel staff were very kind and accommodating. There is always someone in the front desk at all times who is always very happy to assist you with anything, and the other staff are always on call as soon as you need something. When you order food, they encourage you to stay in your room whilst the food is being prepared so you don't get bored waiting. My workmate and I always get back at the hostel near midnight/midday due to the many festivities opening the Ati-Atihan but even then, the staff still welcome us with a smile.

In the last three nights of our stay, we were transferred to a smaller room in the same floor since someone booked the big room at that time. The room we were transferred to, although a bit smaller than the previous room, was still spacious and cozy, so we were greatly pleased.

To sum it up, this hostel really exceeded my expectations because you get hotel-class treatment and accommodation despite the fact that it is a hostel. A big thanks to all the staff at the hotel for making my stay in Aklan feel like home.

P.S. If I have swayed you into getting this hostel as your place to stay in Kalibo, I recommend asking if you could get rooms 101-103 since those are the nice ones. I cpuld not speak for the other rooms, but I know for a fact that those rooms share a common CR. If you're worried about that, it is imperative to get one of the three rooms I mentioned. I hope your stay here will be as pleasant as mine was!

This hotel is situated in the center of the city, near the mall, market and cathedral. Twin room is ok, clean but it will only provide one 10 g soap for a room good for two. I am writing this so you can bring your own soap ( funny though). Generally, it is ok to stay here.

Spent a night here the night before we had an early flight from Kalibo to Manila. Staff were very friendly and the hotel was nice. Only spent a few hours here as we went downtown to enjoy the nightlife. The beds were very hard however, just a light sponge covering a wooden base.

It was quite cheap, so I would consider this hotel good value for money.

I paid around £30 for a standard room and wash't expecting much but the hostel definitely fell far short of my expectations. The staff were quite unhelpful and the room felt dirty. I was told about free Wifi but none was available until I pestered the front desk. After 15 hours of flying I was hoping for something a little less drab. I've stayed in plenty of cheaper hostels here that have been of much higher quality.

The name itself states that it is a hostel so don't expect any frills from this place. It is located in the center of town near the public market. This means that trykes are easy to come by and there are many options for cheap eats around.

The rooms are okay. Mine was barely 20 USD for a double with a/c, tv and its own bathroom with hot/cold shower, so I can't really complain. That said, if you're looking for comfort, then this is not your place. The room and toilet was clean but run down.

The staff was friendly and accommodating.

If you're looking for a cheap option before traveling to Boracay then this place would do well enough I think.

Stayed here with friends last March 14-16, 2013 and we were happy with our experience in this hostel.

Location-wise, hostel is around 10-15 minutes away from the Kalibo airport. It's near the city's public market and close to some of the city's most-recommended places to eat. You can get there via a chartered trike from the airport at around 50-100PHP or around 10-15PHP/head if not chartered.

Hostel is average but it's a good value for your money, especially if you are on a budget. At 500Php/head for a triple room, you already get a free breakfast. Not bad for a one-night stay.

It is also clean and staff are courteous and attentive to the guests.

They allow phone booking but they require 20% downpayment to secure your reservation. Upon arrival, they require you to pay the balance in full already.

Over all, I would recommend this hostel for those people who want to spend some time in Kalibo. For those going to Boracay, you might also want to consider spending your first night in Kalibo at this hostel before you head to Boracay, the next day. :)

We stayed overnight in the said hostel in order for us to catch the early flight to Kalibo Airport the next day. Twin Hostel was good enough, for the amount of Php700, I think it is okay. Nothing fancy about the room. Room has 2 single beds, TV with cable, A/C. Comfort Room was shared by other room, goodthing is, there are no other guests during our stay. Location is good, you can have quick access to Kalibo Market, drugstores and fast food chains. It was a peaceful overnight stay at Ati-Atihan Festival Hostel.

Staff was accomodating, receptionist is friendly, security guard helps us find the transpo service to Kalibo Airport at reasonable price. Pasalubong Station at the ground offers affordable foodies. For the amount we paid for, I think it is okay. As I was saying, hotel itself may not offer the luxurious stay since this is designed for budget concious, this is ideal for people who needs to catch an early flight at Kalibo Airport and needs to sleep for a couple of hours and relax.
