    Good value for your money”

    The room was very affordable considering that it was a family room. It was spacious and the room was furnished with basic room fixtures and furnitures like a desk, sofa and a closet. The hot and cold shower was working. The only downside is that the tv offers very limited channels and travelling with kids, we need that kind of entertainment for them.

    Great stay, good location and amazing staff”

    Our room was spacious and has both fan and air conditioning, no problem adjusting the room temp. We actually tried walking from the old market back to the hostel (do it at night) and it wasn't tiring (as was suggested by the kind lady at the front desk) so it's near the party, food and shopping area. The staff really amazing, supper kind patient and even suggests whats good for you (try talking to them about what you want to do or if you want to get better deals with your money like us) they're polite, cheerful and helpful. We highly recommend Pool party Hostel 😍

    We booked ahead of time and paid for for room already. Unfortunately, when we get there they told us the room are all full and no vacancy because they let the other extend their stay. They should’ve not accepted our booking given that there’s no available rooms anymore.

    Lousy place ”

    If you really want to enjoy a neglected dirty hotel , then Nordic Inn is your place ! Walls in the rooms are not painted , shabby furniture , water doesn’t flush in the toilet and there are leaks from any possible pipe . Wifi works only on one side of the building and there’s no tv in the rooms as published in the information . Enjoy your stay !

    Cheap yet poor customer service”

    The old lady caretaker is very unwelcoming, not friendly and unapproachable. Cheap rooms but not worth it. There are a lot of pension houses, inns, apartelle in Sta Fe that are cheap with good location and better customer service. The room near the kitchen is dirty, old paint, airconditioners are also dirty. We were also scolded for not turning off the airconditioner after leaving the room because they have high electricity bills. Do the customers need to know that??? First time I heard that cuatimers need to save electricity even though we paid for it

    It’s just that there was no tv in our room. It was stated in the description, and also in the Facebook page that there is. Overall we were satisfied with our stay. People in Bantayan in general are very accommodating and hospitable.

    Very good”

    We booked a fan room but soon found out that even in August, whilst it is cool where we are from (We are Filipinos, yes), the heat and humidity in Bantayan Island is unbearable. The ladies at the reception were gracious and kind enough to let us upgrade to an airconditioned room for a fee, which we appreciated. The room is very basic, but you are not in Bantayan to hole up in your room probably, but it is nice to come home to a cool room at the end of the day's activities. A stone's throw to the beach, near the highway and MJ Square. We loved Bantayan Island and shall visit again.

    Nice Stay”

    This hostel is amazing as it is very near to the center of Sta. Fe Bantayan Island and stayed here for one night. I have had a fan room which gave me a homey vibe since it is very windy and relaxing at the veranda. With its location, you can take advantage of roaming around the place, buy affordable foods, drink at MJ Square, and go to the beach in minutes. I would like to see more of the staff making smiles to every guest they meet and exude energy.

    proximity to beach, town, and guarding dogs

    stayed for three days. If you are looking for a no frill, basic accommodation, this place fits the bill. Ac can be loud but functional. Dogs guard the gate at night and would growl for anyone who comes in. 2-3 min walk to a mart and bit longer for all bars

    Very clean, close to the beach and a big family room

    The owner of the hotel went out of his way to meet all our requests and needs. I was traveling with two of my girlfriends for the holidays and the family room was perfect for the three of us. The hotel is ideally located and just 100 meters from the beach. It's a great choice in a beautiful place.

    Very Unprofessionalism”

    We book the room 5 days ahead of time. We been at the hotel around 4am for us to do some island activity so we can consume our short vacation. When its about to us to checked in after the tour (2pm) they just told us that it is overbooking .We came first in the hotel, we even talk early in the morning she never told us it was overbooking and we as a guest have to adjust! they gave us on options to transfer in another hotel with a higher rate and so freaking small rooms and toilet is dirty! And to take their fan room /stock room and the toilet is smell poop! I have no choice to take the fan room because everything is fully book at that moment! If I did tell her about my refund she wont pay me back! That landlady is a scammer ! Never again!

    honest review”

    location was good because it was near the public market where night life and food are.Accessible to public transport. But here is the deal we booked through agoda but when we get there the lady manager said that it was fully booked and our names was not in the list, good thing that the nearby stayhome is available.The manager was always nowhere to be found if there is something you will be needing. The room itself is not pleasant.,the water supply is sometimes salty or has a strong chlorine odor. I hope they could renovate the rooms because it was not a comfortable place to spend the night.

    Budget friendly, near to the beach and near to many restaurants and the town proper”

    Read in a review that nordic inn has an unfriendly landlady. Well yeah she’s quite unfriendly but she’s very helpful. She was the one who arranged our island hopping, motorcycle and bike rent and our transportation to the pier and even gave us tips on where to eat. No sweat for us in booking for those things. If you’re looking for a budget placeto stay, i can suggest nordic inn. It’s a typical pension house, clean room, clean bathroom, has a place to cook, walking distance to the beach that has a mini sandbar, and 2 blocks away from the townproper where you can find lots of good restos, bar, place to shops, church and the atm. Would probably suggest for the owner to upgrade the inn a little bit but all in all good. 👌

    THIS PLACE IS FRAUD”

    I dont recommend you make a reservation as they will say that they are fully booked and the lday attending the guest will recommend you to another inn at a higher price. In the end, we get another placr and she tends to say bad words against the other place just to discourage you and get what she reccomends. very bad attitude towards business.

    The room is filthy and the comfort room is far worse. The blanket isn't cleaned. Even if you'll be out most of the day I would still not recommend this place, you're supposed to be relaxing after a tiring day. There are lots of affordable inns at Bantayan, their price is slightly higher than Nordic but it's worth the price

    Good price & location! Friendly staff but the rooms need improvement”

    When we first found this in the listing, we considered the location and the price that's why we got it despite of the negative feedback here. It's in really good location, near the beach, near stores and MJ squre is just a few blocks away. The staff is very friendly especially the owner. It's a different story for the room. For us Filipinos, (sadly) it's not too surprising. The bathroom/CR is not that clean. Lacks the facilities for example, our airconditioned room didn't have tv and does not have a lot of space to hang wet clothes.We are not too picky tho when it comes to rooms for as long as the bed is clean and the price is still reasonable. But for foreigners (not Filipinos), I could say you may not be very happy so please lower your expectation. You get what you pay for. But the good thing is if you do have requests tho, you can ask the owner or any of the staff because they have the Filipino warm hearts and they'll surely hear you out with a smile. :)
