positive surprise - you get what you pay for”

-clean room/bathroom - central location -nice communal balcony with highspeed Wifi

Because I knew that I would ne arriving very late in El Nido I made a reservation for one night at the Francisco Inn already two months before my arrival. I was then very concerned when I was on the day before my departure reading the reviews of people who obviously recently stayed at that place. I arrived by bus at 11pm in El Nido and after a short tricycleride at the Francisco Inn. Here I was greeted by two friendly smiling ( maybe alittle sleepy) girls who took some time to find my reservation. I was then showed to my upstairs room which was small but clean with a window,a clean bathroom with cold water and a big comfortable bed. If somebody compares this with a slum he has never in his life been near a slum!! There is a big balcony on the first floor where you can meet other travellers,use the Wifi and even cook your own meal if you want.It is quiet at night because the place is a bit away from the main road bout in the morning does El Nido wake up early.It is only a short walk to restaurants,shops,bars,nightlife and the beach.The staff is always friendly if not overly enthusiastic but they will always try to help. If you want a first class hotel pay a first class price and you have many options in ElNido which is not a cheap place compared to other areas in the Philippines.If you want a budget place with good value for your money I can recommend Francisco Inn. I ended up staying here for my whole week in El NIdo.And so did lots of Israeli travellers who usually know very well where you get value for your money.

Was that bugs ???”

Relatively unexpensive hotel in a relatively noisy area - not the worst though. You hear other guests through cealing, floor and walls. Staff is a disaster (exept one girl). Staff is there to receive money. Thats all. Noisy TV in reception plays most of the time - loud offcourse. Central for getting in contact with tour-companies and for the wild nightlife in the beach area. Lots of good eating places nearby. (E.g.: Hapi Tumi - Great food/chef and a nice owner. I strongly recommend it.) Don't expect to get internetconnection on the Wi-Fi. Maby a general problem for El Nido. After a few days I had picks/bites on my lover legs. I a not sure if it was from the Hotel or from somewhere else... Many good eating places nearby.

last minute booking”

My sis and I had to find a place to crash for the night as we arrived quite late. the beds were sandy, no toilet seat and walls super thin. we took the room directly once you enter. maybe the upstairs rooms are much better maintained as we know that quite a lot of ppl were staying there. early morning since 6 ppl started stomping upstairs and generally the room had a stale smell. i've got to say that for el-nido this is kind of what one should expect for a low budget price but for the price we payed it isn't worth it. i wouldv'e opted for a place further out of town in half the price.

No clean water, room never cleaned in 4 nights”

Location to sea front.

This was the worst guet house we have stayed in on our travels of 2 months, staying in places of similar and lower prices. We had no sink to wash in an the shower water smelt rancid so we washed in bottled water for four nights. Our room was never cleaned and the bin was not even emptied. The staff were apathetic, the usual Filipino warmth and hospitality did not seem present to us! The only plus point was location, I am unsure why this place has received good reviews before- please don't stay here!

The rooms downstairs are not recommendable (smelly, dark), one didn't even have a handwashing sink. Upstairs rooms are better, but still the value for money is not achieved. (aircon) is definitely too much given the fact, that it is not at the beach. Fan rates are more acceptable but I was not able to book this option.

Terrible place to stay ~ stay away travellers ”

+ cheap - everything else - dirty, noisy, hot, smelly water, poor shower, cockroaches, ants, strange and unfriendly looking at the reception On my second night the room was full of flying ants. When I asked for another room the always rude staff (3 people at the time) asked me to wait in the room and said they will let me know when new room is ready. After an hour I came back to the reception and found that all the people have mysteriously disappeared although they were usually staying there and smoking (which could be smelled in the rooms) till late night. Those rude and extremely lazy people (just like sooo many Filipinos I have met during my last 6 visits of the archipelago) were simply hiding and did not want to solve the problem. Stay away from this “guest house” travellers!
