        A Budget FRIENDLY and Yet Very Comfortable room in El NIdo”

        This is one of the cheapest accommodation in town and yet very comfortable and convenient. It is located along the main road, Rizal street and only 5 mins walk from the port and beach. Food, bars, tour offices are just nearby. Surprisingly, the rooms are very tidy and clean. The aircon is very cold and there is wifi. The bathroom is also very clean. There is also a convenient store infront which is also owned by the homestay owner. I would surely recommend this homestay for those who are looking for a cheap but worthy accommodation in El Nido.

        Quick escapade”

        I was booked here in late July 2018. When we arrived in El Nido, the rain was non-stop and the streets were flooded. Floodwater definitely went inside the room, and the owner immediately transferred us to another hotel. Overall it was still a great experience. The people are very accomodating. The place would be reallg great since its so close to the beach, restaus and bars. Would definitely book again, but never again on monsoon season.

        The staff was very accomodating. The location was very near to the restaurants, souvenir shops and especially to the port. Bed and comfort room were very clean. Disadvantage was you can see a few insects around the area but I think that’s normal because it’s rainy season tho.

        You get what you pay for! ”

        Stayed here for 4 nights and it was great. The location was at the center of town. It was near the bakery and restaurants. Walking distance from everything. The room was small but it’s well maintained. Nice restroom and the aircon was working too. But i just wished they had a cabinet for clothes. They just have one table inside the room. They have thin wall division so be sure to be quiet! They also offer free coffee and hot water every morning. We checked out by just leaving the keys inside the room. The hotel staff were missing when we left town. Overall : if you’re just staying in el nido for island hopping this is a good option. It’s cheap!

        Above average”

        This is a really noisy place. It is located right next to the main road. Walls are really thin so you can hear everything. Almost impossible to sleep, only quiet time is around 4-5am. Roosters start screaming already at 4, but at least no tricycles and other noise. There is no housekeeping and we had red ants in our room. They are probably living in the walls.

        Staying in a sewer (don't stay here, no Ninja Turtles) ”

        You don't want to stay here. We booked, arrived and could see through the crabs in the floor to the water below, it's built above low level water, less than knee deep. The bathroom next door flushes straight into the water and so you are above an open sewer, it smells like it too. We could not stay in this room, it makes you feel sick. So we asked to change. The woman came to see what was wrong and then went back to reception. After 30 minutes I went to see her again, she said we could move to another room but had to pay more (1.5 times more on top of what we had already paid) we did this because those cheap tons are not for for even one night habitation. But this expensive room was not great (although the toilet flushed into pipes before going into the water below). This place is best avoided. The customer service is bad too indifferent. The cost is overpriced, the location smelly, it is a sewer. Avoid staying in sewers, there are many better bad places to stay i

        Great Value for Money”

        The place is just 3-5 chill walking to the beach and the port where you'll ride the boat for the tours. no need to ride the tricycle. Same with places where you can eat and dine. Place is cozy. has a clothes rack and hanger where you can let your wet clothes dry. Room has both aircon unit and wall fan, so if gets too cold, you can just use the fan and vice versa, or both, which is great. The owner was awesome, although we only communicated thru text, we were well endorsed to the staff and the tour agency for our tours. very hassle free. The staff needs to be more attentive with the regular needs (e.g. refreshing of trash bags, hot water for coffee, and towels). other than that, it is a great place to stay.

        Good accommodation in El Nido Town”

        Very clean and comfortable room with a big bed and attached bathroom. Towels, soap and shampoo were provided. Staff were very helpful in organising tours and answering questions. Walking distance to the beach, shops and restaurants/ bars. No noise disturbance at night. On the downside, Wi-fi was very poor and the big bed took up quite a lot of space in the room. No in-house laundry service but that's not a big problem as it can be found nearby. The room can get hot and stuffy, so make sure to leave your windows open during the day to allow some ventilation if you don't book a room with a/c. Overall, we were happy with our stay here.
