    Nice hostel and affordableJust 5 mins walk to Alona beach. I really loved my stay here. The receptionists are nice. I stayed in a mixed dormitory room. They do have lockers outside the room. Each bed has its own light and two sockets. Met two friendly bedmates namely Alessio and Maria. They also have free breakfast but they don't have complimentary shampoo and soap but it's okay. Nevertheless, I really enjoyed my 1 night stay! Hope to stay here again, soon.

    Safe and CleanIt's a cute little hostel located near Alona Beach. There's a couple of banks close by (BPI and BDO if im not mistaken). Though the bathroom stalls for men and women are in the same big room, it is well maintained and cleaned everyday by the staff. The ladies dorm was clean and the pods were spacious. The AC was working very well, given that it is facing the wall and not the beds/pods. The lockers outside were big enough to fit all your stuff (especially mine, I over packed for my two weeks of solo travel). The common room/kitchen is very lovely, especially at night with those cute lights they have hanging. They have plenty of board games, magazines and books to read there. Their staff was really helpful with tours, they're also friendly, I get to talk to them whenever I hang out in the common room. They serve light breakfast every morning and free cocktail every 6:30 pm. Really great place to stay and I'm happy that I stayed here during my last leg of solo adventure. :)

    Good for Solo TravelersI currently live in Panglao Island but decided to book with Moonfools just to be 10 mins away from the beach. Most of the staff were friendly and helpful. Wifi was fast compared to the choppy wifi in other resorts. I didn’t expect they’d serve breakfast and though I never tried it, it think it was a plus for what I paid. Downside is the bathrooms were dark and needed more upgrade. Overall, it was a decent hostel and a well maintained place.

    Everything is superbI booked with this hostel for a 1 night trip in Bohol. Beautiful facade, location, amenities, and staff. The interiors were perfectly designed with eco-friendly materials. It was good 5 minute walk from Alona beach. The airport bus also stops in front the hostel so it's very convenient going to and from the airport. The doors in each room are equipped with digital door lock with passcode. I was amazed with how they came up with the idea of the DIY oatmeal for breakfast. Will definitely book with them again when I come back in Bohol. Also, I've already recommended them with my friends.

    Great location & free coctail, but bed bugs!”

    I'll start with the good points first. I like the location being in the highway, close to restaurants, massage parlour, minimart and McDonald's. Within walking distance to the beach. A few bars with DJs and live music are close to the hostel, but far enough to not hear them while sleeping. There are free cocktail every evening to encourage interaction between travellers staying in the hostel. Staffs will respond to you while being asked questions, but that's all one or two words kinda response. For example, "do you have a tourist map?". The answer was: "yes, over there" while pointing towards a big map on the wall which wasn't completely helpful. I rely on google maps and reviews more during my 3N stay. There was no briefing given at check in. The worst: BED BUGS! I was bitten all over my body the first night. Being positive and thought it was mossies, I bought insect repellent. On 2N, I woke up to see bugs moving freely on my bed!!! This has been reported to the staff. Watch out...!

    Pros Amazing location Good bed/mattress Staff very helpful: booked me a tour and airport transfer Breakfast was ok: toast, banana, porridge Showers are good Met some good people the last couple of days Cons First night or two there wasn’t a great atmosphere. Lots of Asian tourists had booked the place out so couldn’t interact with as many people. Room was quite small. I was in 6 bed dorm. I would actually recommend staying in a room with more beds where you get the pods.

    I only booked for 2 nights but ended up extending my stay for 3 more days, cause apparently there are a lot of things to do in Bohol. Love the privacy in the sleeping pods, the smell inside the room, it is sparkly clean, friendly filipino stuff and amazing facilities This hostels wins the award of the best hostel breakfast ever!!! And it is a diy healthy breakfast. The lounge is a good place to meet other travellers, free water, free cocktail every night; love the songs theyre playing everynight tho! it exceeded my expectations! And its a plus that you can rent a scooter and a bicycle . this hostel is an eco friendly hostel!! ❤ I love this hostel so much!💕

    You get more than the price. The beddings are clean and really smells good! I don’t normally walk around the house with barefoot but, since it’s one of the house rules I need to follow and honestly is ok because the floor is clean. They sweeps the floor from time to time. The lounge area is so comfy colourful and masarap tumambay and makipag kwentuhan sa staff and other travellers. The best ang breakfast! The comfort room is clean as well. Ano pba? Basta sulit! Will definitely stay here when I go back to Panglao. #solotraveler

    Every Bed has its 2 sockets, lockers are large and the public area is very comfortable for social, games, and internet surfing. It's easy to find because they are just on the side of the main road and has an obvious board. The hot shower is not useful every time, and the breakfast is little bit simple. By the way, the scooter rental they provide is much expensive than outside, try to find another place to get a fair price.
