    WORST HOSTEL EXPERIENCE”

    Our stay in this hostel was very unpleasant. -The heater in our room is not working. They said they used solar power that’s why the water doesn’t become warm. There was also a centipede coming out of the drain while I was using the shower. -The arrangement of the cabinet in our room was also awkward making it hard for us to fix our things. -One morning, we requested to clean up our rooms and we even offered to leave our keys but they said they already have a duplicate key. When we went back to the hotel in the evening, the rooms are still how we left it. We asked if they cleaned the room and they said THEY DO NOT HAVE A DUPLICATE KEY. We were really disappointed with their service and it seemed like the staff were uncoordinated and unsure of what they are doing.

    Great Location!”

    The hostel is located at the heart of the town. It is near to different shops and market. The room is very good. The only thing I notice is that the water pressure in the faucet of the CR is weak and the ceiling of the bathroom is partially leaking. I think the management need to repair this. The hostel also offers a budget meal breakfast.

    Not bad but not brilliant”

    Had a very comfortable stay here…..can be quite noisy from outside and walls seem paper thin…. Cold water or lukewarm at best from the shower, staff were helpful…..no water containers to refill ur bottles…..has potential just needs a proper manager to pull it all together.. .

    Nice Hostel in Town”

    What I like about most of this hostel were the friendly staffs (Glenn and Ruby) at front desk were accommodating, and walking distance to the El Nido town beach. It was also near to restos and souvenir shops.
