              Worth it”

              The lodge is cheap but i didnt feel shortchanged. The room has aircondition, private cr, double deck wide bed and all. The only complain i have is the water which is based from what i heard from the local, is normal. It smells and has a color like bronz because it comes from a deep well. All water supply in el nido is the same so regardless of where you stay, it’d be the same. The staff is accommodating, they frequently clean the area. No complain. Will go back here someday.

              Just dont expect too much for the facilities from a cheap accomodation . If u only need a room to rest with a private bathroom u can stay in this place with a great location.

              No television in the rooms. The water in the bathroom is yellow. There were some days without electric (which I hear is common all around El Nido) It appears that the price at the actual site is more expensive than if you booked online. We extended our reservation but could not get the agoda price.

              The place is ongoing renovation so don't expect for a 5 star stay but quite good enough for backpackers for its price and location. Big plus on the staff, as they were kind enough for whatever you need and really knowledgeable on the island and tours.

              Will not go back to this place. The toilet was not well-maintained at all, it has a smell that spreads over the room. It is cheap, yes but not recommendable at all.

              A COMPLETE DISASTER”

              stay away from this lodge even if it's too cheap! I was too tired from a 6 hour travel from puerto princesa, only to find out that I booked the worst accommodation of all my travels! The front of the lodge is an open canal that is being constructed I guess. Towels, linens and sheets have this yellowish stains! Also the rooms were not properly cleaned! It's too late for me to book another accommodation to clear my head from stress. This is one of the factors that ruined my short vacay in El Nido!

              You get what you pay...but....”

              Normaly, i don't write such Reviews, but... You pay what you get fits as it's best.. it is a very cheap accomodation in a good located area in El Nido. That's all. Unfortunately in the entrance of the building the hole area smells like urine! A very discusting walk to your room.. the bathroom is not better, if you want to shower, buy some water from a store, otherwise you will enjoy a shower full of yellow water with a smell and taste of rusty iron. The same in the toilet, after flushing the water, you have a yellow brew in it. Finaly the staff is friendly and helpful!

              Old and a lot of mosquitoes inside. The smell of the water is like copper. Very old house. Need to improve the cleanliness. The only good thing about our stay is the discounted tour and the location of the place is just beside the city hall. Walking distance to Corong corong terminal.

              I have been in lot of hotels, different standing, but mostly in budget one, the price always limit the équipements, size of the room, location etc, but no standing justify the lack of cleaneness, and the poor state of the toilet like we found in this one.
