It's a hostel - you get what you see

location, the beach,
The Zambales beach is quite nice since there is a commercial ban and no shops directly on the sand. The Circle Hostel has a nice hang out area with bean bags, which is nice if the fans work. There are 45 beds with 4 showers... and since there was a brown out when we were there, there was absolutely no airflow in the huts and it got very hot and stuffy at night. We left one day early since we couldn't get good sleep in the heat with loud people screaming at the bar outside until 4am. If you are 18 and a frat-boy, this is the perfect place for you.

very friendly staff, nice common area, worth the money you paid
Honestly speaking, I was hella stressed while staying at this place. we had to sleep in a tent for one night just for some quietness. Maybe because me and my friends chose a wrong time to go, we went during holy week. The place was packed during holy week. Facility wise, there is no enough space for everything. beds to beds, restrooms are super small and the floor was always wet. They only have 3 restrooms and 3 showers, but one toilet was broken, imagine in such hot summer condition, you have to wait in queue to shower or use the toilet. I suppose you get what you paid for. there were some guests very disrespectful, they were making so much noise even when someone were sleeping in the dorm in an very early morning. and they were also singing and baning the bed on the beat. But the staff are really nice and helpful. if you are going to stay at this place please avoid going there during philippines holidays. Other days, it's pretty okay to stay there.

Fun Family Getaway

Rustic Setting, Homey Ambience, Warm Community
It was such a welcome break from the city. It was a convenient distance from the city - a a painless car ride away but far enough that it felt like a well-deserved vacation. My 8-year old daughter loved the bright colors, the quotes-on-the-walls, and the overall rustic, boho vibe! She was the only kid during our stay but she was made to feel welcome by Ate Vangie, Paco, and our fellow guests. It's a tight-knit community where I could let my kid roam around and play on her own. She relished the freedom that came with it. We're starting to break her in with the backpacking circuit/adventure weekend getaways and this was the perfect starter. We're getting Paco to teach her surfing on our next trip.

Easy going and cheap

Cheap, friendly, easy to meet new people, close to the beach
Me and my girlfriend only stayed for one night, we would have liked to stay one or two more nights but we were on a tight schedual. It's a pretty cool place as long as you take it for what it is, a cheap hostel. There is nothing fancy about this place but it has it's charm for sure. Besides, it's pretty much your only choice of residence if you are looking for a place to stay while surfing Liwliwa The three (and only) biggest drawbacks were that even though it was said breakfast would be included we were sent to the resturant on the other side of the road. It wasn't much money so we didn't really care but if you are on a tight budget you might. The other drawback was the roosters. They started with cookooing at around 2 in the morning and then kept going all throughout the morning. If you are used to it I'm sure you will just sleep through it but we sure didn't. The last one is that since we were white we got a bit over charged for the tricycle rides into town, but we got that everywhere in the Philippines haha. All in all we were happy with our stay, it was super cheap and you really can't expect any more than what they are offering. We would recommend it to others going there to surf and who want to meet nice people.
Hotel Feature Tip: Rent a surfboard and hope the waves are nice.

Great family run hostel

This rustic little hostel is great if you're traveling with friends and want to cook yourself. I loved the hammock set up.
Like I said above, the hammocks are a great touch. They have built in mosquito nets. From the website I expected thereto be ton of people and a lot to do outside of the hostel. There's really not much to do, but it's stil worth a trip, especially I'd you have friends traveling with you, if you're a surfer or have a great, long book to finish in a peaceful atmosphere. When I went into town, people would stare, I don't think this town gets many tourists. It was easy enough to get to though. When you get into town just take a trike or about 40php and they'll take you to the secluded Circle Hostel. If you're staying Ina hammock, make sure to out your bag in another hammock though, one of the cys peed on my bag. I'm still trying to get the smell out. All in all it was a great stay, could have been much better with company though. Also, don't book through Agoda. Circle hostel will still charge you when you get there.
Restaurant Tip: Go to the local market in town! The food is authentic and tasty.

Hardware and staff ok but location not convinient

Hotel facilility is ok, the bed is comfortable, location near a beach(just a few minutes on foot), staff was nice.
the hardware is OK, staff also good but the hostel locates a bit far away from the San Felipe town center (I mean from the bus stop).
