      The staff there are super friendly, we loved them. They arranged us fantastic tours and borrowed us the umbrella to go out when it was raining. The location is fantastic! The room was big and the fan was enough for us. There is no hot water but they gave us boiling water to mix. The bathroom wasn’t fantastic but it is super ok. They don’t offer western breakfast but there are a lot of options nearby. To improvement it would be nice if they clean the room during the stay :) thank you strong tower!

      Acceptable for Budget Travellers”

      The place was a bit hard to find at first since it's inside a small street. Good thing was the inn itself is in the city center so a lot of eateries and stores are nearby. The room was okay, it was small but clean. It's acceptable for budget travellers. The 3 rooms we reserved comes with AC so we can sleep comfortably.... however, the only downside was.... they turn-off the AC in the middle of the night, so we wake up at times feeling hot. I'm not sure if they were conserving energy, but they're not supposed to turn it off especially when guests are uninformed. During our last night, there was no water so it's a bit hassle... not sure if they turn it off as well. haha

      Really good location in the centre of El Nido town proper. I think everything is quite expensive in El Nido but the accommodation was reasonable. The room was clean, as was the bathroom which was an en-suite and not shared. Toilet roll provided and free coffee in the morning! Can’t complain about that!

      STAY AWAY”

      This was by far the worst place we stayed after 3+ months of traveling around SE Asia... I am a budget traveler and have stayed in very basic rooms but this room was absolutely disgusting. The whole room was moist (including the sheets), the ceiling was very moldy, it smelled of mold and sewage, the toilets don’t flush, and the bathroom in general was filthy. Do yourself a favor and do not stay here. We ended up leaving after our first night and moved to a hostel.

      Basic accommodation ”

      Don’t expect too much except for basic accommodation. AC worked, room was very small, decent WiFi, and pour to flush mini toilet. Staff was friendly enough and had coffee in the morning set out for guests. Always had hot kettle available to coffee/tea/noodles. Not too far from the bus station and close enough to main drag in town.

      Great Location but Room is Just Okay”

      Location is very convenient since it is near convenience stores and restaurants but, the room has watermarks on the ceiling, so when it rains it pours but just some droplets of water. Good things: -Friendly staff (girl) at front desk -An area to dry clothes are available such as hangers in the shared balcony Things I dislike: -Dusty AC -Pillows aren't fluffy

      Good working a/c and fan which was needed overnight. Comfortable bed. Very close to town/El Nido Beach. Bathroom was the biggest issue- smelly water, poor water pressure made showering difficult. Toilet very low to the ground.

      The location was great just off the main road about five mins to beach and bars etc. myself and a friend had a fan room, it was very hot so air con room is definitely advisable to anyone going. room was clean and you get what you pay for, was a pleasant stay however there were small ants in the room crawling round the walls and some on the bed..ive seen this in other rooms around so it's not a huge shock and they don't harm you...overall it was a nice stay

      Read carefully ”

      Room was small, sheets didn’t stay on bed. bathroom was sub par: toilet was non flushing and needed a full bucket of water to flush excrements. For men, sitting on toilet for doing your daily was a horrible experience.... Toiley was about 8” tall and the bowl was so shallow that you had to lift half your body away so your d*** wouldn’t touch the inside of the toilet. When shower was turned on, it smelled of sewage( assuming it was from a bad drainage, and not the water itself) All in all, wouldn’t recommend to a friend unless you’re on a tight budget and it’s the cheapest.

      The water in the bathroom made us sick”

      Can’t complain about the bedroom or the staff, but the bathroom was the worst. The water (tab, toilet and shower) was not clear at all and smelled terribly. In the end we both got stomach flu which can only be related to the hostel due to the fact that our friends were fine and we all ate the same things. The water is just so gross you don’t even want to wash your hands there. Not even talking about taking a shower. We told the owner but don’t know if they will take care of it.. as long as it’s not fixed I would never recommend to stay there. Btw another couple from another room had the same issue with the water
