Top!”

For us BackPackers Hill is the best place to stay in Port Barton. It is located just outside the center and you can walk there along nice little roads. The hosts are very friendly and help you where they can. The cottages have everything you need and there are good beds. Before the pandemic we stayed in BackPackers Hill for 3 weeks and now after the pandemic we stayed there for 4 weeks. When we go back to Port Barton we will stay here again.

Cottage and garden were very nice and comfy
Location a bit far from the centre and the beach (around 15min walk)...the pro is that the place is very quiet and peaceful...the con is that you may need a motorbike to easily go back and forth during the day and night

Breakfast in the morning was great and the communal area was a lovely setting. The hostel itself was very relaxed and the staff very friendly and helpful. The huts are small but comfortable.
The shower and toilet in the hut are very close to the beds with only a sheer curtain as a door (not a huge issue but maybe something to note if you&#39;re not very comfortable with the person you are sharing with)

You get your own bungalow, really comfortable beds and the mosquito net is really good! Really helpful and friendly staff. When a situation occurred, they handled it🤘🏽 and the breakfast was really great, so was the coffee ☕️ the thing we liked about this place was that it was a bit out of the main streets, took about 10 min to the beach :)

Tranquil place with mountain views”

Nice bungalows, good place to chill in the nature, there’s no need to use a fan as it’s cooler at night because of the mountains around. Ten minute walk to the town. We didn’t know the place is split in two parts and the bungalows in CXJ Travellers Inn are more spacious (might be a bit more money) plus the owner is super kind and we were blown away by his hospitality.
There’s no wifi and almost no signal, the breakfast is very poor and it’s the same every day (a banana, one egg and a toast). There’s an honesty box for water refills, which could’ve been free as in most places we stayed at.

Lovely comfortable hut”

Loved our stay here, the hut was super comfy with a lovely big bed and a good mosquito net. The place was very clean and was so idyllic. Yes there’s no wifi or phone connection but I enjoyed the peace and just chilling in the hammock. Wish I could’ve stayed longer! Also the staff are all very friendly and let us use the spare shower before we left in the evening after a day at the beach. Would definitely come again, and hope to in the near future!

The host family is very helpful; we&#39;ve stayed on a twin bed hut, I was amazed about the details of the interior, spot on! Excellent air circulation, no A&#47;C nor fan was needed. Location is good, not in the centre, only 10-15 mins walk, passing through the local neighborhood, plenty of smiling kids and cheerful people.

We really enjoyed our stay. Everything was clean. Good mosquito nets. Nice bathroom. Beautiful location, little bit out of town. At night you can enjoy sky full of stars. It was our best accomodation in Philippines.

Disappointing”

Cabin is great. It&#39;s a pity that is not a double room
Remote location. Need a motorbike. . Far away from the beach but and the same time very noisy (music, roosters, other travellers). We booked a double room and they only have twin rooms. The adversiting on a booking is misleading. Staff likes to gossip and meddle. I lost a universal plug in the room and they never replied back to confirm that they found it
