    Nice place for solo travelers”

    Their common area was a great place to meet other travelers. The 3-level bunk was scary at first but it's pretty solid. They have a drying area too so it's good for your wet clothes after returning from your tours. They provide free breakfast and it's near the beach and other stores and close to the LiO free shuttle. The staff are friendly and gives detailed information for your inquiries. I will definitely want to stay to this place the next time I will be in El Nido.

    Don't Waste Your Money!!!”

    We booked for 4 nights in this OMP El Nido from July 03 -07'18 for a group of 7 people. This place was so small, dirty, has broken air conditioning, ,loud and noisy, leaking rain water inside the room, don't change bedding with bed bugs, not safe place to stay and RUDE EMPLOYEES!!! We decided to evacuate the second nights because we don't feel safe in this place.. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY STAYING IN THIS ZEN HOSTEL OMP EL NIDO!!! Find somewhere else around safer. I would recommend MIKEE PENSION EL NIDO PALAWAN. nice place, quiet, safe to stay, nice location ( walking distance , center) , very clean , value for your money, nice free wifi internet and very nice owner.
