        Relatively unexpensive hotel in a relatively noisy area - not the worst though. You hear other guests through cealing, floor and walls. Staff is a disaster (exept one girl). Staff is there to receive money. Thats all. Noisy TV in reception plays most of the time - loud offcourse. Central for getting in contact with tour-companies and for the wild nightlife in the beach area. Lots of good eating places nearby. (E.g.: Hapi Tumi - Great food/chef and a nice owner. I strongly recommend it.) Don't expect to get internetconnection on the Wi-Fi. Maby a general problem for El Nido. After a few days I had picks/bites on my lover legs. I a not sure if it was from the Hotel or from somewhere else... Many good eating places nearby.

        Terrible place to stay ~ stay away travellers ”

        + cheap - everything else - dirty, noisy, hot, smelly water, poor shower, cockroaches, ants, strange and unfriendly looking at the reception On my second night the room was full of flying ants. When I asked for another room the always rude staff (3 people at the time) asked me to wait in the room and said they will let me know when new room is ready. After an hour I came back to the reception and found that all the people have mysteriously disappeared although they were usually staying there and smoking (which could be smelled in the rooms) till late night. Those rude and extremely lazy people (just like sooo many Filipinos I have met during my last 6 visits of the archipelago) were simply hiding and did not want to solve the problem. Stay away from this “guest house” travellers!

        My sis and I had to find a place to crash for the night as we arrived quite late. the beds were sandy, no toilet seat and walls super thin. we took the room directly once you enter. maybe the upstairs rooms are much better maintained as we know that quite a lot of ppl were staying there. early morning since 6 ppl started stomping upstairs and generally the room had a stale smell. i've got to say that for el-nido this is kind of what one should expect for a low budget price but for the price we payed it isn't worth it. i wouldv'e opted for a place further out of town in half the price.

        it was ok, very simple, overall OK. however the staff should be smiling more! also, there was a shower with no hot water option, and very freezing (i was even hearing my neighbor screaming in the shower in the morning), no toilet paper in the room and no water spray! no breakfast included, no free cofee (only hot water offered). things to improve easily to make this place better.

        Location to sea front.

        This was the worst guet house we have stayed in on our travels of 2 months, staying in places of similar and lower prices. We had no sink to wash in an the shower water smelt rancid so we washed in bottled water for four nights. Our room was never cleaned and the bin was not even emptied. The staff were apathetic, the usual Filipino warmth and hospitality did not seem present to us! The only plus point was location, I am unsure why this place has received good reviews before- please don't stay here!

        overpriced, lack of smile, freezing shower”

        clean, close to the beach, laundry service, nice balcony

        it was ok, very simple, overall OK. however the staff should be smiling more! also, there was a shower with no hot water option, and very freezing (i was even hearing my neighbor screaming in the shower in the morning), no toilet paper in the room and no water spray! no breakfast included, no free cofee (only hot water offered). things to improve easily to make this place better.

        location, staff

        The rooms are small and there is no hot water, but it is a really good hotel if you're on a budget. You can rent motorbikes at the hotel and the owner is really helpful.

        No clean water, room never cleaned in 4 nights”

        Location to sea front.

        This was the worst guet house we have stayed in on our travels of 2 months, staying in places of similar and lower prices. We had no sink to wash in an the shower water smelt rancid so we washed in bottled water for four nights. Our room was never cleaned and the bin was not even emptied. The staff were apathetic, the usual Filipino warmth and hospitality did not seem present to us! The only plus point was location, I am unsure why this place has received good reviews before- please don't stay here!

        Overall, a simple but comfortable stay. Had a decent sized room with private bathroom. Staff were fairly helpful. Location was good - very convenient. Would recommend if you're a budget traveller.
