If you are looking for a cheap place to stay in coron this is the best place to be. Situated right in the heart of coron it is very convenient coz restaurants ,stores, shops, church, travel tours are just right around the corner. Their breakfast was also good. I recommend this place especially for backpackers.

I like Balaibinda because it is just in town and very close to restaurants, BPI ATM, Saint Agustin Church, Mt. Tapyas, wet market, etc. They're all a short walking distance away. The place is clean and staff are nice although it sometimes takes a while for Geena (the Reservation Agent) to reply or she sometimes does not reply all... One good point is that I got good island hopping packages from her. :) It would have been a lot better if they'd have a fridge that would save a lot on those who are traveling on a budget. One thing I didn't like is that you only get the toothpaste on your first day of stay and doesn't get replenished as well as the bottled water. Shampoo and soap may be requested though. Breakfast is ordered outside and quite cheap if ordering for extra pax (P100).

One of the highly rated and well reviewed places in coron town, it's understandable because of the affordable prices on their rooms. This is one of their main selling points, good rates. The location is also excellent, super central to town and close to the boardwalk. With the great location though is the problem I had was the noise from the motorcycles in my room coming from all the activity and traffic outside, it kept waking me up in the early mornings. Aircon small but got the job done, mattress wasn't so good and room generally very tiny but no complains on the room itself for this price. Average place, reviews were too kind to this place.

When you travel a lot, sometimes you need a break from shared dorms and crowded hostels. If you find yourself in Coron Town, I can't recommend this place enough. Close to bars, restaurants, market and shops yet far enough away for a good undisturbed rest. Coron Town itself is pretty small and quiet but for 1/2 nights, this place is ideal

The hotel is very centrally located right in the middle of town. 10-15 mins tricycle ride to nice restaurants and 10-15 mins walk to good restaurants and the 750+ steps Mount Tapyas. Also 10 mins tricycle ride to the pier where all excursion activities start. The hotel is clean and right sized for our family of 3. Airport hotel transfers and good breakfast selection was part of the package.

This is categorized as a "specialty lodging" in TA. It is not a hotel and it is a step-up from a B&B.I booked a superior family room for 5 although there were only 2 of us because I wanted lots of space. Sure enough, my room was big with 3 single beds and a queen bed. The room has wood flooring. Whenever in the room, I had the air-conditioner and 2 ceiling fans going which made it nice and comfortable. We had a firm bed with clean sheets and pillows. The washroom/shower was a bit cramped but we had hot water and strong water pressure. My experience with the front desk staff (especially Jane) was great. She always followed up on my requests and answered my questions regarding places to see and eat in the area. I also noticed that the staff wore uniforms. The front desk arranged 2

They say, do not judge a book by its cover. This is true for Balaibinda. Perhaps the small garden in the middle somehow turned the drab whitewashed building into something more lively. The rooms were quite clean and comfy enough after your adventures in the islands or exploring the town. Stores and restos are accessible just when you need to buy something or find a place to eat. The staff are accomodating and they make good arrangements for your room and airport transfers. I regret that I stayed here only for a night but I would definitely stay here when I come back for business and leisure.

This place is in a decent location and the courtyard is nice. If you get a room here, definitely take the courtyard over the road option. Breakfast and wifi here are both on the budget side of things. We made an error in our booking, but when attempting to correct it, the manager wouldn't even talk to us. Not even on the phone. Instead they kept using an intermediary which was a frustrating experience. Especially when it seemed they didn't know their policies.

This is a great central place to stay. Very close to the public market and the waterfront where most boat tours leave from. The room is basic but comfy. Breakfast is decent with a choice of phillipino or western breakfasts. They only serve water or coffee though. I would highly recommend the tour the offer around coron island but I was very disappointed with the firefly tour and the coron city tour. If your looking to do tours there are many many tour services which you can book on the day.

Great location! We stayed in one of the 2 single bed courtyard rooms for a night. It was very cozy. The only complaint I had was the musky, damp smell in the room, but overall friendly and helpful staff, free wifi, a/c, complimentary breakfast. Would stay there again.
