Great Location & Comfortable Bed!”
Location is perfect; within the main drag of El Nido town but closer to the pier so away from what I considered the true “center.” I had no issue with noise - I was in room #8 and I think it’s the best (furthest away from the road). Staff was very friendly, bed was super comfortable! WiFi worked well for me the whole time. If I had any slight complaint it’d be the lighting - the room is quite dim. But I was only in there to sleep really, so didn’t matter so much! This place is a great value for the cost and I would book again upon return to El Nido!

Not recommended ”
Very poor service
Hi,Thank you for your Review ,i'm so sorry but i do believe that you should complain to your agency, it because you booked by agency not to us its clearly stated and shown in Agoda that our Budget Air con doesn't have Hot Shower and also your Booking doesn't have Breakfast you can also see picture on the site. I believe we are not to blame for this.But still ,So sorry and Thankyou for your Staying with us.
We loved Shipwrecked”
Stayed in the superior room on 2nd floor with a nice view of the street. There’s even a (steep) staircase to the attic that leads to a miniature balcony where you can enjoy the night breeze. Bed was comfortable, room was clean, with air conditioning available, although not very big compared to some similar properties. The hosts were one of the friendliest - definitely a factor that made our trip a most enjoyable one. Location is super - so close to the beach (where many island hopping tours begin), the nicest seaside barbecue restaurants, and ~5 minutes’ walk away from the town centre. Reception has contacts for island hopping tours. Before you leave the hotel, just drop a friendly reminder to the reception to change your towels and clean your rooms, and you should have the most awesome stay in El Nido!
The staff were all extremely helpful. The bed and pillows are very comfortable. The air conditioning works very well. The noise was not so bad outside. If you're on the second floor, it is easy to go to sleep with the sound of a few people talking. The water pressure is weak, but I think that is out of their hands- this will be a problem anywhere in El Nido. The location is perfect! When I return to Sl Nido, I will for sure book with them again.
Great place to stay...Awesome Staff.”
We stayed for 6 nights over New Years. The room was great and the staff were so nice and accommodating. If you are looking for a quiet place this is not the place for you as it is right at the center of the most popular bars. Good restaurants are nearby and it is one block from the beach. The nightly rate might be a little high for some but the help from staff for booking tours or calling transportation was worth the money. Anything we needed the staff was able to accommodate or contact someone who could. The room was cleaned every day and the morning breakfast was pretty good. Great coffee but expensive :)~ I will try to stay here again on my next visit to El Nido and would recommend to my friends. Thanks for your part in making this an awesome vacation to Palawan.
Cool and Unique Place”
It is an interesting place. It is not on the beach, but right across the street from it. The staff was phenomenal! They were so very helpful and friendly. The internet could be better, but come on, you are in El Nido, where you can expect the towns electricity to go out at least once a day.
Cons: we stayed in a standard AC double, and the room was VERY damp, we never truly felt dry after a shower. Also very dark. Bad smell to accompany damp. The mattress is very old, the springs literally dig into you if you lie on your side. Lots of mosquitos and insects in the room. Temperature knob on AC broken so cannot control temp. Woke up in the middle of the night to plumbers dismantling the tiled floor very loudly. Pros- brilliant location, staff very nice, can organise day trips, coffee shop on site, nice sitting area in reception, cute dog.
Maayos at malinis. Very accommodating and friendly lalo na ang staff very friendly they even help us book our van back to Puerto prinsesa. They make sure all our needs are attended. I would definitely be back and recommend this to our friends who are planning to take a short vacation in el nido
Dear,Guest . Thanks very much for staying with us,and also to your nice review. we look forward to welcoming you again with your family and friends for a next stay in El nido palawan.
Don't. Just don't, if you like to shower. NO RUNNING WATER HERE!”
The rooms are like in the pictures - very cute and good. But the water runs out in the evening, and there is nothing to be done but wait. We were in way cheaper places in Palawan and never ran into this problem. And for this price one should expect running water. Or water at all for that matter. Breakfast was also a sorry show - just don't bother. The pretty rooms are not worth it.
Hi thank you for your quotes regarding our hotel problem, about water flowing we're asking for your understanding we are constantly looking for ways to make it easier for us to realize that we are near the beach inevitably quickly filled our tanks. but we are still grateful for your stay. thank you very much. Best Regards, Shipwrecked
I stayed at Shipwrecked for 5 nights and I couldn’t wait to leave. Bathroom had cockroaches, flies floating around in the room, there was a shower head that didn’t work and flooded the whole bathroom, toilet didn’t flush, bed was rock-hard and uncomfortable, the room smelt and the manager was rude when I brought up these issues with the room. The only positive is the location.
Hello good day. Thank you for your message, first we would like to ask for more understanding because we did not keep in mind your expectation in the room you wanted. But we have made it a way for you to have a satisfaction. we moved you to the superior room to be comfortable. Because we also wanted to make your stay as beautiful as possible while you were on vacation. so we're still grateful for your message and that will bring us some knowledge so that we can focus on the things for future guests. many thanks and god bless. best regards, Shipwrecked.
Water closet blocked. No immediate repair. Still a memorable stay because staffs are friendly n helpful
Hi Norazhwan, Thank you for taking time to write a review,Regarding to your complain we apologize for that case,Because Our Maintenance on leave and we try our best to call someone to fix our water closet, and we are so glad to hear that you enjoyed the service of our staff, we look forward to welcoming you back to our Pension in the Future. sincerely, Shipwrecked Pension
great location + great staff = great time”
The staff at Shipwrecked Pension House were very attentive to our needs. Location is nearly beach front, in the center of all essential El Nido attractions. Highly receommended!
In the city+near the beach”
Shipwrecked is easy to locate as every tricycle driver knows the place; it is a 30sec walk from the beach, and 0sec walk from the city! Perfect situation. The personnel is very welcoming and helpful, and the owner is a funny lady ready to help to make your stay easy. Room is clean, with both AC and fan, and provides much space.
Lovely, cosy budget hotel”
I have spent 4 nights here and definitely would go back again. The staff was very friendly and helpful in all ways, location is superb, room was clean and simple, was missing the fridge tho from the room and wifi was very slow but i guess its El Nido's specification :) I would highly recommend this pension and would definitely stay here again. Thank you!
Good place to stay;”
If you want a place with a very good location, and friendly staff, that's the place; The room was good, and hotel stuff gave us tips or trips to do and places to visit; As well, any small issues we had, they were willing to help; The breakfast was the low point on this pension house though, I didn't enjoy as they don't have space for it, so every morning they prepare the breakfast at the loby, in front of the lobby desk. I think they should not to offer breakfast, as this way they won't frustrate their customer;
Would come again”
Best breakfast in Palawan with real coffee! Room smelled a bit damp but we found this was the case at most accommodations as they keep it closed to keep mosquitos out. Good location and good value for money!
RATS! Way overpriced!!!”
For the price, this place should not have rats! At night we heard them in the ceiling, crawling around and squeaking! When we approached management about the serious issue they laughed and said don't worry they won't go not your room. At nearly 65 USD per night this place shouldn't have rats and management shouldn't laugh it off when guests complain. Would never stay again. Only stayed two night la because everything else in the area was booked. Never again!
Good location ”
We stayed here for 3 nights during our time in the Philippines. The overall stay was pleasant. One of the ladies at the front desk was so helpful and gave us so much information. The only downside I could see is the lack of hot water in the bathroom. This might be standard for el nido though. The air conditioner was nice and cool in the bedroom and was definitely needed when we were there. Overall, the place was great and I would return again.
Good enough for what you pay”
My wife and I stayed only for one night. The hotel was clean and so were the rooms. Breakfast was good. Bed could've been a bit more comfortable but overall we got a good night sleep. The hotel is located in a great location right in the center of El Nido and within 2 minutes of the beach. My only complaint about this hotel is that checkout time isn't until noon, yet they turned off the air conditioner and fan approximately 35 minutes before noon. I was a bit disappointed by that. Besides that, I would recommend the hotel to friends because of the location and the staff who were very helpful and nice people.
Loved El Nido and the Shipwreck”
Accommodation in general in the Philippines was more than we expected but we really enjoyed staying here even though it cost more than we anticipated. The staff are really lovely and the breakfast was really good.
