    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.

    Great value for budget room ”

    The staff were very helpful and allowed us to stay longer at short notice, large comfortable bed, good aircon. Good price for a budget room. Great location. Wifi didn’t work that well, only cold shower, no flush on the toilet.

    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

    Get what you pay for”

    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

    A bit expensive for what it is, but ok for a few nights in El Nido”

    The rooms are like most of the bottom of the range hotel rooms in the Philippines : the price is not cheap, and the room are just basic af and not really clean or comfy. The noisy AC works well tho, so if you’re just sleeping there it’s ok (if you have good earplugs). Sometimes there are power outages all day in town, and the hotel doesn’t have a generator so no AC, light, fan or WiFi for you ... The staff is kind and can book snorkelling tour for you for a cheaper price than in town :)

    We spent 3 nights here and liked the place. Good value, nice and clean room, quiet during the night. Hard to find even if it's along one of the main streets. We rented a scooter for 500php and was almost brand new.

    Excellent location close to restaurants, the beach and walking distance to the ferry terminal. The room is basic but comfortable with a good fan. The ensuite is ok and we just used the cold water bucket shower. The staff were very helpfuly and even made us breakfast of rice, eggs and bananas for only 100peso each :D Their laundry service is one of the cheapest in town.

    Damp and Mouldy ”

    So we got there around 10pm at night and were suppose to be staying there for 4 nights and as soon as the door opened it stunk of dampness and as soon as we sat on the bed it also felt really damp and sticky we asked to move rooms which they were happy to do so however the other room was exactly the same. We ended up staying there that night and checked out the following morning with no refund for the other 3 nights we had booked.

    Notre chambre était vraiment miteuse. Il y avait une autoroute de fourmis dans la salle de bain et la chambre puait énormément même si la fenêtre était ouverte et que le ventilateur fonctionnait. Il faut vraiment avoir un petit budget pour aller là...

    Awful”

    The worst place I have ever stayed. No water at all. Couldn’t even flush the toilet. When I told reception they just tried themselves and when it didn’t flush they just said “there’s no water” and went back to reception and listened to music. When I asked what to do they just said “wait” I asked how long and they said 10 mins. The next day the toilet flushed once then never again. No water in the tap or shower. Had to tell them to let me use another room and they were annoyed that I had sand on my feet when I went in. Book somewhere else!!! This was horrific

    Great for budget room ! Highly recommended ”

    Good value for money ! Bathroom in the room, free coffee the morning. The room is quite big. Staff is amazing, really helpful ! You can book tour with them, cheapest than the other and tour A and C are great ! Wifi is okay. You get what you pay for ! Shower is a bit smelly but nothing dramatic for Asia.

    budget option in a good location ”

    A clean budget option especially for aircon but it's really let down by poor maintenance ie no proper shower fixings so you have to hold the shower head which isn't ideal when you want to wash your hair, the toilet was broken (didn't flush) so we had to clear with a bucket of water, which incidentally was filled via a tap that squirted water everywhere & then broke off altogether flooding everywhere. .. The owners really need to spend a bit of cash & get things fixed properly. The ladies on reception are lovely & really helpful but if you pay for amenities especially basic ones like a toilet you expect them to work. Also we booked Trip A with the hotel which people note is a good price but once on it we were told that we had to pay 400 piso to use the kayak for less than 45 mins!!! we had no option but to pay as the boat dropped us so far from the lagoon & i'm not a strong swimmer so could not make it there myself especially as it's so frantic with so many boats around.
