    Has potential but the guesthouse is not maintained”
    The guesthouse is okay in general but no one seems to be doing any housekeeping. The comfort rooms could use some cleaning and fixing. It would also be nice if there are plates and utensils in the dining area. It's an old traditional and well-preserved Filipino house that could have been more welcoming.

    Terrible”
    I am a female solo traveller. I arrived at 7pm in the dark, the hostel is on a back street behind a gate and not many lights so didn't look open. Was greeted by 3 men and barking dogs. Didn't feel good about it but then a young lady appeared and showed me in. I had to ask about everything otherwise she would have walked off without telling me - the shared bathroom was down the corridor, the Wi-Fi was broken, there was 1 man in the room next to mine. Then she left, the hostel was totally empty, no other staff anywhere, all empty rooms. My room was annold single bed with electric fan, mosquito net and some drawers so overall pretty standard for £4 a night. But I was totally alone with no feeling of security with the constant sound of men's voices and barking dogs outside. Totally innocent people of course but I just would have like SOME feeling of security and there wasn't any. Then the power went out at 9pm and again at about 6am, both times fixed by someone outside within 15 minutes so thank you to them. This morning I packed up and left, still with no one at the desk to talk to or check out with. Supposed to be staying for another night but no way in hell is that happening.

    I had a great stay there. It was a peaceful clean place. You will have free wifi and free drinking water. It is near Puerto Bay so if you like a nice walk around the bay then it is a good place for you. During night time, puerto bay has also a lot of food stalls and restaurants which u will enjoy. P.S. I was the only tenant that time. I had a really great time as a solo traveler.

    I was the only guest (apart from my roommate the mouse) when I stayed and so cleaning was minimal. Staff were friendly, but the atmosphere was a bit odd. The dog had a little of 2 month old puppies running free which I loved (others might not), although they did have fleas.

    A quiet place to rest and located at few minutes walk from the center where I stayed two days in this place, my card broke down and the owner took me with her car to several ATMs and I could not get money so the owner invited me to breakfast and took me to the Puerto Princesa airport. 100% recommended

    Amazing staff. Cheap and comfortable accommodation.”
    Good location. Jeanette is amazing. She is so helpful and friendly. I stayed in a single room and it was comfortable and a decent size. The garden area is a nice place to relax and meet other travelers. The bathrooms are fine. I think it's just the Philippines in general that has bad plumbing so the water sometimes cuts out and showers have very little pressure but you can't expect too much for the price. Will definitely return!

    I did a last minute booking here because I had nowhere to go. The location is great because it is near some of PPS attractions like the cathedral, plaza cuartel, bayview park & museum. You can just walk to go to these places! It is also less than 10mins away from the airport. I really like the ambiance the place gives, especially they have kubo and duyan where you can rest & relax. Also, you can play with their dogs!! 🐕 The room was clean and also the CR and shower. The people there are very approachable. The owner also let me check out at 3pm for free. 😊

    Stolen”
    Don't stay there! After a day trip back to my room, the locked door was still locked. But my credit card was gone (but passport and my diving certificate card that I put with my credit card together were still there). My bank informed me someone were trying withdraw money from the credit card but failed due to pin code protection. When I raised the issue to the owner of the house, she said the police won't even bother to come unless I have proof that my credit card got stolen...... stolen is stolen, need a proof? And then she straightaway directed the "possible" to other in house guests....... The worst thing is that the owner lady said "we can do nothing, coz you at least still have your passport!" What a cold and irrelevant response! Guys, think! my room was locked when I left and locked when I back, I have the key with me during my day trip.... and the owner's first thought was other in house guest.... Anyhow, without credit card, I have to cancel the rest of my trip and go home 8 days earlier than planned.
