Located on first floor with great view of El Nido Bay, and well-located for bars/ restaurants etc in town (so may be a little noisy, but full of character). Very helpful manager - Jasmin. We turned up at the last minute and she gave us a deal on the room which was overlooking the balcony and bay. Organised Island Tour... More

We stayed at room 2. Location was ok. Beach front, but you don't really need beachfront when in El Nido because you will just have tours (especially for first timers). There was no view from the room's window. Everything you will need is walking distance. Room has basic amenities, bed was just ok for sleeping, sometimes you can hear the... More

A good value for beach front hotel. The room is quite good, the light was too dark, and i dunno maybe there's some bugs on the bed, so my friend got itchy all the night. Overall, their service was good. They can help us to book van from puerto princessa to El Nido with discount price. The staffs are friendly,... More

We needed a place to stay one night before getting the early boat to Coron. We got a room here. It was surprisingly good. Large. Quiet. Fantastically located. Free tea/coffee facilities. Great view. Pleasant staff. Next time in El Nido we'll head straight for here - no qualms at all.

Very good for those who are looking for cheap rooms. Its a beach front hostel with a good service and their own generator however, they have a low water pressure in their comfort rooms. Overall, its a good find!

One of the cheapest accommodations in El Nido. That is, if you're looking for something along the beachfront. We booked online and got an air-conditioned room good for two for P1300. Breakfast is not included. There's also free WiFi. The Room The room is pretty basic. You get a blanket, towels, and a safety deposit box that is locked with... More

Beachfront with the lowest rate I've seen on the internet. Hassle free transaction via e-mail. Clean rooms with free towels. Wi-Fi is free with strong signal. Near to everything! Offers free coffee and water. The veranda is a nice place to relax with a great view. Jasmine (staff) is accommodating and friendly. Overall, I would recommend this place to budget... More

I went there with a group of 9 people so we occupied all 4 rooms. The rooms are decent and clean. Two rooms have private bathrooms, and the other two shares a bathroom. The staff was very accommodating and kind. She booked our tours and even went out of her way to run errands for us. The only down side... More
