Nice room with great view, very clean and tidy, great food as well. Plus very friendly staff and host , couldn't ask for more. We had a wonderful time in there. P.S. Snorkeling spot is the best I have been.

We stayed 3 days in this hostel and we had a really good time. The food is amazing, snorkeling spot just infront and a good place for sunsets. The room was clean and cosy. The staff is friendly and help you for organizing your trip.

About
Description
Formerly known as Panorama Cottages, Panorama Backpackers is one of the oldest and most experienced resorts on the island of Bunaken. Recently refurbished, it was originally established just as More travellers began to reach the island. We have always been a family-run, local enterprise and our staff, all of whom are family and friends, will take pride in caring for you during your stay here. If you want a friendly, casual, backpacker-style retreat, with a genuine home-stay atmosphere, then Panorama could just be what you're looking for. Less
