    Good value”

    The ladies that work there are super nice and helpful. The breakfast was good quality. The bed was a little hard and the toilet wouldn't flush properly and the last night the water pump kicked on and off every minute loud enough to keep me awake...send them a message first to make sure that water pump is fixed.....but for the price is excellent value in El nido

    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!

    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!

    Perfect”

    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.

    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.

    DAMP”

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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;

    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.

    Decent stay, still prone to power outages”

    Location to food,drink, and excursion options

    There was a small storm that came by on the first two days of our stay, and the power was out a few times. The hotel has it's own generator but it seems the A/C unit doesn't run when the generator is on, only when the power is supplied by the town. The water pressure was not strong at all, but I wasn't expecting it to be in a town like El Nido.
