    I can say I made an excellent choice over amongst other hotels in Puerto Princesa with regards to accessibility, comfort and affordability. As a backpacker, I would recommend this place to everyone! You have to stay here to believe me. The staff are accommodating, friendly and considerate to your needs. They are up all night so if you are working at night, which I was, somebody was there to make coffee for me and the internet was fast, too. The place is located just 5minutes from the airport so there's really nothing to worry about missing a flight.

    Wasn't able to sleep well”

    We chose this location as it can accommodate a huge group of people. The problem is the people in the room adjacent to us were being loud. We looked for the facility's staff to complain at 2am, no one was around so we knocked on their door and asked them to turn the noise down. At 3am, again the noise went up. We looked for staff to request help but no one was around. We had to ask them to quiet down yet again. We could not go back to sleep after that even though we had an early morning trip. Not worth the money when you can't get a good night's rest. May be good for groups who dont plan to sleep the whole night, but not for families needing rest. Staff also insisted they were there all night but we could not find anyone. No apologies offered either.

    Too Far ”

    - Tricycle drivers will ask you to pay 150Php for a ride from airport to Alesseo, so if you thought you saved a lot for a night here then you made the same mistake as I did. - Food service was not so good and pretty pricey. They don't have change for big bills. - I like how the maintenance there cleans the pool. Staffs are polite. - The room could get too hot for backpackers assigned in upper bunk bed as the fans will be used by the lower bunk beds occupiers with or without your consent. - The shared restroom weren't properly cleaned and maintained. The toilet's flush work sometimes. - What made this stay excellent is due to the design of the place. Really good view and relaxing.

I had to sit and also lay down to wash myself -really noisy when I was there since there were some renovation just across the pool -the pool is really dirty ( you cannot see your feet when in the water) -staff seems a bit clueless about the tours they offer and the facilities of the hotel. Not really helpful - no water refill: you need to buy the small and overpriced bottle of water at the restaurant in order to get some drinkable water in the hostel -good but overpriced restaurant -a bit far from puerto princesa down town Overall: I would not stay again

    Newly renovated but”

    It was a nice place to sleep in coz the rooms are newly renovated however there’s no tv in the room and wifi does not work. The glass doors were not properly aligned and there were spaces in them where mosquitos can get inside the room. The bathroom is huge but the toilet bowl is not strategically positioned. It was located at the back of the frost glass door where people from outside the CR can see when you are sitting in the toilet. For a group like us with a male companion it is not very ideal so we ended up covering the door with newspapers for privacy. I hope they could still improve their facilities since they are renovating. But the staff are so friendly and accommodating plus they have a swimming pool.

    Jsou lepší místa v blízkosti letiště !”

    Warm welcome at the front desk by an arrogant receptionist who might have dropped out of the 20th floor of NY Plazza Hotel, otherwise I can't really explain his behavior at the backpacker's hostel reception. This place I do not recommend to western tourists that ubiquitous polished dirt is suitable for local tourists who come from homes where they have a clay floor. There are plenty of beautiful, clean places around you where they will like you and will not be considered someone who interferes with them because they are doing business here as we were told at the reception?!?! And forget about the pool, it is impregnated with slime not water!

    Stayed here for two nights with a group of friends. At arrival the water in our room wasn’t working. It wasn’t working in the morning either after assurances that it would be. Staff generally seemed disinterested in helping out in ways that would be a given point of service at other hotels. There are plenty of better places at the same price in Puerto Princessa so just skip this one.

    The pool view was deceiving. I checked in early so I could take a nap. I had to check out immediately after my nap as ants were crawling on me in my bed. Sheets felt dirty. Ant paths were all in the bathrooms. The bathroom door know was broken with a huge hole in it. No ac, it was very humid with just fans. I hope I can get my money back, it was a non-refundable cancellation.

    Pros: - Pictures on the booking.com or agoda.com is beautiful - They have a big trees inside the place, it looks very good Cons: - Super hot room, hotter than outside (30 degree), it was like 40 degree in the room. - If you ask to move with A/C room, they charges you 200 peso per night so it is better to choose another place in the city center. - Swimming pool was super dirty, I never touched the polluted water since I do not want to got sick. - Far from everywhere and it costs if you take transportations, normally for foreigners they charge more. - It looks like near from the airport and it is. But the entrance of the airport is opposite side so it is like 3km away form it. - Construction of another building is annoying in the day time, super noisy and dusty - Construction of road in front of this place is annoying in the day time, noisy and dusty too - Room cleaning was not so enough

    The hostel manager is rude and even cursed at me”

    I don’t recommend this hostel at all!!! The place itself is boring and there’s nothing to do and no one to talk with. I am also upset that when I left my neck pillow, I texted them with the number that is on their Agoda page stating that I will be coming back for it since it is very important and has a sentimental value. The manager has the decency to scold me for not messaging them on Facebook and even denied having left there at all. The manager even told me to F*** off because I was raising my voice? Ofcourse I would raise my voice because it’s not my fault you did not update your number on the site. I’m so mad and will not recommend at all!!!! Go to Guni Guni Hostel. This place is trash.

    I approached the receptionist to ask when will I be transferred in this room and they told me that they will just call me once it ready. However, after waiting for hours nobody looked for me to assist my transfer from the fan room to this AC-room. Even when I checked out they never brought this up to me until I told them about it. The receptionist that morning told me that he endorsed it to the other receptionist. They did not compensate me for this negligence.

    極盡自然的環境”

    首先地點離鬧區有點偏遠,提前兩個小時入住,還需付300塊披索,我選的是豪華房,所以房間是大的,但過於自然,晚上如果要起床去廁所,要很小心,因為會踩到毛毛蟲,還有蟋蟀,這種房間是不是很天然呢?戶外的游泳池就更厲害了,這種地方居然有硫磺溫泉顏色般的游泳池,看不到底耶,不是因為深唷,加上泳池面也會有落難的飛蛾,不小心掉落的毛毛蟲,偶爾落下的樹葉,其他真的很棒呢!!如果是我的建議,你有多遠走多遠唷~~😱😱😱
