Good Location, Clean Room”
DDD Habitat Lodging House was our accommodation for 7 days in Batanes. It was accessible, value for money, and clean. The facilities are basic but it was okay. Staff was friendly, too.
Very Pleasant Stay because of the Staff”
We stayed in Siayan room that is very spacious but still under renovation/repair. Improving the toilet drain would've made the place even better. Despite the loss of internet connection due to the typhoon last year, our stay became pleasant because of the helpful staff, Chandra, who was very willing to assist us with almost everything. My friends enjoyed it more because they are fond of children so they played a lot with Chandra's child whenever we were at the inn. Well done, Chandra & DDD Habitat! Dios Mamajes!
The place is near the Basco Airport and accessible to the nearest convenience store where you can buy all your necessities. The accommodation includes free use of the kitchen wherein you can cook food and water dispenser (hot/cold) available for free. This is also meters away from the Bisumi Travel and Tour agency in case you'll avail their tour packages. DDD is known to everyone and you just need to book early to get the best room during your vacation in Batanes.
Great value for money. You can even cook your own food for free (once a day)! Our Batanes trip has been more enjoyable and comfortable because of DDD Habitat. Sabtang room is great for big groups (up to 6 pax). Just one thing, I hope they can provide a thicker blanket.
This lodge is a stone’s throw away from the airport and walking distance to good eats such as Beehan, Pension Ivatan, Casa Napoli. It is also close the INC house of Worship. They provide towels, soap, and tissue. We stayed in Sabtang Room at the 2nd floor. There is also hot/cold shower. They provide filtered water at the common area - hot and cold. There is also a fridge where you can keep some of your food. They allow you to borrow plate and utensils. You can also cook there for a fee. The only downside is the several steps you have to manage going up the lodge. Could be a challenge for the elderly. Other than that, this place is highly recommended.

Hotelfor budget travellers”
I checked if the complaints of previous guests have been addressed. The water system has been fixed, unfortunately when the tank overflows with water,it leaks in the Silayan room on the third floor. The building need a lot of repairs. The windows bang against the walls when it gets very windy,it is difficult to sleep with all the noise.The bathroom doors need to be replaced, maybe with more water resillient material because the bathroom is so small and when the guest showers, the door gets wet and damaged. When we arrived, the room had not been cleaned yet (not their fault because we arrived before check-in time), there were dead ants in the bathroom and the ceiling was leaking. I reported this and left at once for a tour to Basco North. When we returned (there were only 2 of us in the room), we were so tired so didn't bother to ask for a change of room. Besides, we wanted our own bathroom. lea and Monica made our stay comfortable. Without them, we would have moved. Blankets are not provided without requesting. We got so cold on our second night when temperature dropped. But next morning, I requested for one and Monica cam through. But one guest didn't get one that evening - she was told they didn't have any left because more guests checked in that morning. Hello, but I think every bed should have a blanket and not just a sheet. If only Habitat can make these improvements without raising their prices, it can compete very well with the newer lodges/hotels.
Good location and value for money”
Hotel is 4 streets away from Basco airport. Souvenir shops is just around the area. Hotel is strategically located near Beehan for affordable food. Ate Chandra was able to assist us in getting our tour guide which we arranged at the hotel. No available wifi in most part of Batanes. Intermittent mobile data signal for Globe network. Usually available only every morning but can no longer connect to the internet for the rest of the day. It is advisable to use Smart SIM as it has more stable signal in Batanes. Overall, a great experiece and will definitely back here.
very good location, approximately 5-minute away from the airport. room size is okay, the water heater in the bathroom works perfectly fine. generally, the lodging house is clean. water dispenser is provided in the common area, you can get drinking water anytime as you please. there are also cooking and dining wares provided for free use. staff are pleasant and accommodating.
Ok but can be improved”
I don't have any problem with the staff at all. They were all generous, warm, and very hospitable - so as all the people in Batanes! =) Got a very spacious room for a very affordable price as well! Aircon looks new, but wait. What is this? A line of ants on the wall marching towards the door. The faucet was also leaking and the shower has a wet towel to cover for the missing valve. The restroom was quite small so I had to figure out how to position myself while taking a shower. Do I sit on the bowl? Do I stand and let the water drip on the grids of the door and onto the room? Do I really need a shower? really really need it? In the end, I sat on the bowl. Overall, I'm okay with DDD Habitat. The price and staff compensates for the (almost) run down facilities.
Its ok to stay there again but...”
the Owner have to reinvest and to repair and invest now. Broken Windows from the last Taifun closed with a temperary Window so that you cant look out but so that you can open it for fresh Air. The Bath have warm Water but need Renovation. The Wifi is off is in the Hotel but People in the Hotels around have over Wifi Connection to the Internet.... The staff is friendly and try to help but not ever know all Details about Fares for Public Transportation Special for Trips. The Hotels big positive Point is the Place in Basco near the Airport just a 5 Minutes Walk far. If there will be a new Investment it can be one of the best Hotels in Basco. So all together i would stay there again
I would go back to this hotel. It is a great choice among the whole town proper options. The airport is "walkable", maybe 10 minutes? But the cogon trikes (tuktuk) are readily available by the airport doors, and can be requested to pickup from the hotel. There is a convenience store 2 streets away, and plenty of food choices within 50 to 100 meters of the hotel. We got the family (quad) room of 2 big beds, and we're a party of 1 adults and 1 child. The room is comfortable and have the right amount of space for us three. Basic amenities are provided. The bathroom is not cramped. The air conditioning works perfect. Split type not window type, so it wasn't noisy. All the other hotels had the older, window type models that can be a bit noisy. The rooms are one flight up, stair access only. This was not a problem for us. The hotel has a simple rooftop access to stargaze or catch snaps of the Milky Way. Ate Chandra (the one in charged) is very friendly and ready to assist.
Average facility good price”
No built in hot water and good price. Considering several new hometels/ accomodations are opening, DDD must improve their heating system, and toilet conditions., or else their ranking will slowly dwindle down. Another point to note was, their reception staff is only available at certain time (usually morning), since she is going to school in the afternoon. So walk in guests might not be accomodated.
This place is very near the Basco Airport and the staff is very accommodating and friendly.
Thank you maam...
I believe they have overbooked people in the lodging house because when we arrived to check in, we were transferred to another called Red Mole. First impression of DDD was that it was a pretty small place. I would assume the rooms are small as well especially with a group of us in 1 room. Anyway, we stayed in Red Mole instead. We were pretty happy with our stay there. The caretaker was really nice and accommodating to our needs. We had the whole floor to ourselves with 2 bedrooms and had our own lounge, balcony & kitchen area. It was home away from home!
Pleasant and simple stay”
Comfortable bed in a small room. Cool rooftop view (from near the top of the hill that is Basco town) and friendly/helpful staff. Would return!
Avoid this place”
Chronic water supply problem. Water flow is either very weak or none at all. Pre-booked this hotel for 6 nights but had to move out after 2 nights. Hotel is poorly operated and had to talk to management who is based in Manila to request for a transfer to another hotel. The manager was symphatetic to our plight and promptly arranged to transfer us to a more appropriate hotel in the same area. DDD Habitat badly needs to address this water problem head on.
We were transfered to red mole home stay there are 5 of us. We all shared the floor with kitchen that we could use for a price. Overa ll our stay was great. Kuya romeo who lives downstairs was very fast with the service. We were lacking of toilet paper and he brought us some in no time. I would definately recomend this place. And ate Jane from Bisumi tour is such a great tour leader.
Budget Family Vacation”
Since booking for flights and tours in Batanes is really expensive, you can save money by choosing this budget friendly hotel. Good thing about the hotel: 1.) Budget Friendly 2.) Free Wifi Access 3.) Near souvenir shops, market and airport 5mins (the t-shirt in the souvenir shop beside the hotel is of good quality with a tasteful design 4.) Accommodating staff (you can request for a free hot water but bring your own 3-in-1 for coffee lovers) 5.) Cable TV 6.) Breakfast usually choice of longganisa, maling, fish with 3-in-1 coffee 7.) Has a roofdeck with a Mountain View 8.) Simple yet has a touch of Batanes (Bring your own toiletries) 9.) Just hope you don't experience brown out in the summer month (no generator)
Better book with Cancel option ”
The planes get canceled due to weather, I couldn't stay here but I write the review coz I couldn't refund my money, so if booking do separate bookings for every day, so atleast you can save the last few days
