This has got to be the best hostel I've ever stayed at. Newly opened, the place looks amazing. The staff are so friendly, helpful and professional, they couldn't do enough for us. We found this with all the Filipino's we met during our stay, simply the happiest, most positive people I've ever met.
We would recommend this hostel to anyone visiting/thinking of visiting El Nido, or even Palawan.
We decided to fly to the new El Nido airport, which is only a 15 minute trike ride to town as we didn't fancy the 5 hour car journey from Puerto Princesa. The extra money it cost was worth every penny!
The location is outstanding, absolutely unbeatable. The beaches are paradise, the weather was perfect and the water was the clearest I've seen. The food was incredible and fresh, even for a fussy eater and reasonably priced so would definitely recommend eating here.
The guests were amazing, the atmosphere in this part of the world and this hostel is great.
The hostel itself had everything we needed, mosquito nets, comfy beds, clean bathrooms and importantly, safe. I'd be prepared to pay double for the price per night for the quality, comfort and experience we had with Mad Monkey. It is well equipped to be a comfortable stop over, a place to relax and grab a drink, or have dinner and spend the evening there playing beer pong!
Now we've found out and experienced Mad Monkey, we'll be actively looking to stay at these hostels for the rest of our travels.
We had loads of help organising trips, days out and transfers back to the airport.
10/10, if you're thinking of visiting El Nido and Nacpan you MUST stay here.
