            The staff are really friendly and helpful. The rooms are basic but comfortable and clean. Outside area to sit and chill. The location is great close walking distance to the restaurants and bars and travel shops. Beside my most recent stay, I’ve stayed here another 3 times over past year and had no complaints.

            I was scared to book there because of the bad reviews but I didn’t have other options as everything else was booked and in the end I was positively surprised ! Staff was super friendly and funny, the room was basic but not dirty nor smelly, the AC and bathroom worked super well, and I had a really good night. It’s not a fancy place where you’ll enjoy chilling, but it does the job if you’re looking for a “cheap” place to sleep.

            You actually get your money's worth. If you are on a budget and you do not need all the other luxuries but just the basics, then this is the one for you. Despite the limitations: wifi, electric fan...the space is good enough for two and the staff are awesome.

            My friend and I left our stuff here while we did tour A in the morning. The guesthouse was kind enough to watch our belongings AAAAAND let us take a bath after tour A for a small fee. Please dont expect a hotel vibe. This is a guesthouse with a very kind staff. You get the necessities but there's no wifi, no hair dryer, no toilet flush, no bidet and no mirrors in the room. But you do get a place to sleep, a private cr and a place that is peacefully far from the red district of El Nido

            good option if you have tight budget and just needed a space to sleep.

            Does not honor AGODA check-ins indicated, staff not that knowledgeable.”

            We booked at agoda around 800+ only good for 4, yet we were charged 1,200 for early check-in considering that we have indicated in agoda the expected time of arrival (like 1-2 am). The staff are nice but are not that knowledgeable of their business. The location as well is quite good coz it is near the center. Facilities is just so, so. No back-up generator, on our last stay due to limited electricity, the aircon could not function and it was so hot in our room. What was good is that, though the check out time is 12noon, yet we still have our island tour, we were allowed to leave our things and dress up ourselves though it is already around 4pm.

            Sleeping room full of mosquitoes. ”

            Just a sleeping room full of mosquitoes. Bathroom with no mirror. Unfriendly staffs. only 1 staff talks to us, others are just busy on their mobile phone and didn't even bother to look at us while talking. Not recommended unless you don't have any other options.

            They just don't care”

            Then, pointing to a piece of paper on the counter, the receptionist said they have a 'no refund' policy, which was fine by us as we didn't need a refund, we needed a place to sleep. As the conversation continued, the normally lovely and polite local people turned into very unpleasant robots repeating the same thing over and over again completely not listening to any reasoning. I ended up on the phone with the owner who unfortunately was also interested only in telling me this was not her fault because when we arrived at noon we were told that room was not available... If we don't like it, we can go somewhere else. Tired after all day, wanting a shower and food, we didn't think we'd easily find somewhere else at this hour so we paid more and got a room with two regular-size-double beds. The staff didn't even say good morning the next day. The sheets were clean.

            I have been there second time in the same room (extended property, two beds in a room) Conditions.. horrible. There was MOLD and MOISTURE and i sleep in this conditions two days. Water is cold, mixed with toilet,, no plave to hang towel or put your stuff. In bathroom was some insect shelters in the walls. I would not recommend this extension part of hotel. Probably there could be better rooms, but this one mades me sick.

            Dirty and unhelpful”

            The place is extremely overprized and by far one of the worst accomodations during my 5 months in Asia. The place is dirty and the staff is not helpful at all. My brother fell ill and I asked for something cold to put on his forehead because of a high fever and the staff didn't want to help me.

            The place is super disgusting. The facilities are unuseful because everything is old and broken. Then the room was super old, smelly and the sheets were dirty. Besides that, there were many insects. The bathroom was better to not get in. I have been in many places in philippines in better conditions and paying less. Do not book this place.

            Located in downtown. Staffs are friendly. They let us check-in early and they just ask for a minimal amount for late check-out. Will probably stay again at Mochileros if we ever go back in El Nido!

            Good value for money and friendly staff”

            Though we were informed that agoda overbooked the accommodation posted; nanay - one of the staff at mochileros accommodated us and even gave compensation for the trouble caused. The place best suit to those only need a place to sleep at night. It doesn’t offer luxury but good value for your money. Plus it is located at downtown El Nido, everything is walking distance to your basic needs - food, drinks, party bars, convenient store, etc. Easy access. If you’re backpacking or travel with group and wants best value for your money, stay at Mochileros.
