We were lucky enough to be some of the first people to stay in the newly opened hostel and couldn't have been more stoked. The beds are comfy (we easily fit two in one and left our other bed to our bags) and private with screens in between. The bathrooms are clean and modern (cold water but a very small price to pay for the INCREDIBLE location).

Do yourself a favour and stay here - enjoy beer pong with Isaac the manager and Ron the barman (who is easily the sweetest and most generous bartender in the Philippines) but be sure to rise early and treat yourself to the heaven that is Nacpan Beach first thing in the morning. Retreat back to bed or enjoy lazing on the deck for the rest of the day. Perfect.

Food is also delish - especially the ribs (droooool worthy but more on the $$$ end than the other food options available down the beach).

Looking forward to coming back in the years to come to see the awesome things Mad Monkey Nacpan gets up to.

We visited here late October just a few days after the hostel opened its dorm rooms. We stayed for 4 nights and can’t even explain what an amazing time we had, we would recommend this place to everyone visiting El Nido area.

The place was lovely and clean and the dorm rooms were fitted with mosquito nets and had security lockers, we arrived late and emailed the hostel and the security guard was very helpful with 2 shattered girls arriving at 3am!

The location is fantastic it really feels like you are on your own private beach, we asked Zach the manager about a boat tour and he arranged one for us no problem, he provided drinks and a fabulous cooked lunch. We had so much fun!

Bar and restaurant area have a great atmosphere, with lots of drinks and food to choose from which were absolutely delicious. We ate every single meal here. Staff were all so helpful, friendly and very attentive. They were really helpful arranging our transport back to the airport!

Such a fun and chilled out vibe here it really was a slice of paradise for very little money.
We rate this place a 10/10 and would defo revisit if we came back to the Philippines!

WOW..... What a great little spot this place is!

We saw Mad Monkey Nacpan Beach advertised in town, so my girlfriend and I decided to rent a motorbike P500 to head down and take a look.
The road to Nacpan itself is very bumpy but talking to the locals, and it’s slowly getting sorted.

It wasn't long before we arrived and realised that we had reached Eutopia!

We would have loved to of stayed at Mad Monkey Nacpan, but it was fully booked. So we spent the whole day just kicking back at Nacpan Mad Monkey.

We decided to grab a bite to eat, the food here is fantastic, and we highly recommend grabbing a bite to eat. We, of course, had a few beers to soak up the great food.
We found it was hard to find a nice meal as there are very limited restaurants that serve good food, so it was so great to see these guys!

Good work Monkeys, we will be back soon one day we promise!!
