Value for money”

Value for money, clean room and friendly staff. The hostel location is very near to El Nido bus terminal. If you want to go to town have to take tricycle (50p one way around 5 mins). We book our tour & van back to Puerto Princesa airport at this hostel. Very convenient. However, after the tour we have to arrange own transport back to hostel.

Terrible staff”

This hostel was definately not great. Mostly because of the staff there. There were about three girls that ran the place. They woke us up on multiple days. By being very loud on the phone next to our room at 8am, or playing very loud music at 06:45 while one of them was cleaning. When we asked the price of a tricycle ride they sayd it was 450p, while we only had to pay 100p. Also the price to town was 50p every time, when she told us it was 150p. When we told her she was wrong she sayd we were lucky. Overall they were just not very friendly and welcoming to their guests. They cleaned the place only in the morning, so it wasnt very clean. The beds were allright but the staff just didn't put in any effort to make it a pleasent stay. I hope when they read this they rethink the way they should treat their guests.

It was an ok stay if it’s one of the only options available under 1000 pesos. The shower barely worked as well as the WiFi. It took 10 minutes to rinse the soap off and don’t expect to post anything on social media here. There was no breakfast the two days I stayed.

Only two toilets for all the guests. The flush doesn’t work so you have to tell the staff to do it for you. If they are busy your „accomplishment“ stays in the toilet for the next person to look at it. No lockers in the rooms and only three showers with dribbling water.

Misleading photos”

I enjoyed my one night stay here, cheap price and able to serve my basic needs for a decent place to stay: except water supply which can be limited (or none at all) occasionally. However, Agoda please remove photos here taken from ONE EL NIDO SUITE. The facilities images here should only be those that can be seen at El Nido One Hostel. I was about to check-in at the Suite only to be informed that the Hostel is across the street — I think they’ve gotten used to this regular confusion and mixup between both hotels bearing the name “One El Nido” in their name.
