Perfect for Solo Travellers.
If you're up to meeting new people, the circle hostel is the place to be. The hostel is also surrounded by few eateries so there's no hassle for everything you need. The beach is would take around 2 minutes of walk to get to. Overall I would recommend this for people who want to experience something different. #ThereAreNoStrangers #TheReturnOfTheSouthSwell

No wifi and water shortage
My stay was good. The staff was helpful and friendly. The only problems were there's no wifi and they have water shortage problem, They should just have pale and bucket instead of the unfunctional shower since the water coming from the faucet was better.

even without the waves
we're not lucky enough to experience good waves during our visit but thanks to this "home feels" place where you get to laugh, play games and joke around people you just met. A place filled with goodvibes, music, love and creativity, surely you'd almost want the weekend not to end. haha.

It's a hostel - you get what you see
location, the beach,
The Zambales beach is quite nice since there is a commercial ban and no shops directly on the sand. The Circle Hostel has a nice hang out area with bean bags, which is nice if the fans work. There are 45 beds with 4 showers... and since there was a brown out when we were there, there was absolutely no airflow in the huts and it got very hot and stuffy at night. We left one day early since we couldn't get good sleep in the heat with loud people screaming at the bar outside until 4am. If you are 18 and a frat-boy, this is the perfect place for you.

very friendly staff, nice common area, worth the money you paid
Honestly speaking, I was hella stressed while staying at this place. we had to sleep in a tent for one night just for some quietness. Maybe because me and my friends chose a wrong time to go, we went during holy week. The place was packed during holy week. Facility wise, there is no enough space for everything. beds to beds, restrooms are super small and the floor was always wet. They only have 3 restrooms and 3 showers, but one toilet was broken, imagine in such hot summer condition, you have to wait in queue to shower or use the toilet. I suppose you get what you paid for. there were some guests very disrespectful, they were making so much noise even when someone were sleeping in the dorm in an very early morning. and they were also singing and baning the bed on the beat. But the staff are really nice and helpful. if you are going to stay at this place please avoid going there during philippines holidays. Other days, it's pretty okay to stay there.

Fun Family Getaway
Rustic Setting, Homey Ambience, Warm Community
It was such a welcome break from the city. It was a convenient distance from the city - a a painless car ride away but far enough that it felt like a well-deserved vacation. My 8-year old daughter loved the bright colors, the quotes-on-the-walls, and the overall rustic, boho vibe! She was the only kid during our stay but she was made to feel welcome by Ate Vangie, Paco, and our fellow guests. It's a tight-knit community where I could let my kid roam around and play on her own. She relished the freedom that came with it. We're starting to break her in with the backpacking circuit/adventure weekend getaways and this was the perfect starter. We're getting Paco to teach her surfing on our next trip.
