Basic Accommodation”
If you're looking for cheap (less than one thousand pesos a night), basic accommodation - this would be it. Take note: it's BASIC. Clean room, no hot water, decent cable TV, ceiling fan and NO WIFI - not even mobile phone signal. If you're the type who's travelling to El Nido to be outside for most of the time and just want a room to leave your stuff and spend the night without shedding much money, this could be the accommodation you're looking for. It's just really sad that their generator only provides power to light outside the rooms and does not power even one light inside the room and the electric fan. If you're willing to pay one to two thousand pesos a night, you might as well find another accommodation that ensures they have a generator to power a room light and an electric fan during routine blackout.

Good for money”
Dormitels was revealed a great surprise, despite all the bad reviews that this place received in last reviews. It's important to say that almost all accomodation in El Nido faces somes problems , such as smelly water, no hot shower, cover in toilets, electricity falls, etc. But our room was clean, the bed (mattress) was good - new - with aircon. the staff was ok, helpful, and the price was really great. We got a great deal in Agoda, paying 1150php for two nights, for a couple.

My sink didn't work, the water from the shower wasn't draining (this meant 3 cm of water at all time in the bathroom), there were yellow stains all over the Walls and the water smelled really bad.

Extra small room, very nice location”
The room is too small, impossible to live in as a couple. I think is good for solo travelers, though. The location is very good, close to Las Cabanas, and only 10 seconds far from the beach. No hot water, only cold. No wifi.

Annex Double - Non-Smoking

Don't stay here!”
Stayed here for 5 nights and had an awful time. Our room was located in the annex which is currently next to a building site, as the hotel is being expanded. The room itself was very basic; concrete floors, a bed, fan and tv. There were cracks in the walls and around the window through which you can see daylight. The door didn't fit the frame correctly leaving a large gap at the bottom, and so we ended up getting ants and cockroaches. The bathroom was disgusting, the water from the tap and shower was either brown in colour or clear(ish) and smelled of rotten eggs. There is only cold water too, no hot. The room was not cleaned at all during our stay. After two days I asked for clean towels, the staff member I spoke told me that I should be hanging my towels up to dry and reusing them. I pointed out that as the bathroom does not have towel rails, coat hooks, clothes hangers or any area at all outside to dry and asked exactly where I should dry them. He shrugged but did give me fresh towels. On the 4th day we woke up to find that the bathroom was flooded due to the shower drain and toilet backing up. The staff did move us to a new room but it wasn't much better. There is no wifi anywhere in the rooms or common area, despite the books my page saying it does. There is even a sign on reception saying no wifi. On positive side, it was less that a minutes walk to the lovely corong corong beach and the lovely beach bars and restaurants there. It takes 15-20 mins to walk to El Nido or 5 mins via trike. In summary, I would only consider staying here if you find yourself in a similar position to us; there being no other available accommodation available.

Would try somewhere else”
They had taken payment from my credit card although booking summary said we pay in local currency on arrival. Room is tiny, water cold and they are currently next to a construction site, so not the quietest. The rooms are relatively clean, but are sweat boxes when the power goes off, but only 30 sec walk from the lovely sunset beach. The staff are friendly enough, but we were bitten by bed bugs the 4th night.

Rooms had no windows”
If you don't mind the 30-minute walk to town and another back, you may check in here. If you also don't mind windowless rooms, choose this accommodation. This dormitel has a weird layout. But if you're patient enough, I suggest you look elsewhere.

One night is ok”
Room is really-really small. Bathroom is one of the kind- never seen this before. Could not locate water trap and no warm water either. Stuff was ok.
