The rooms were decent and clean and the owners were very accommodating. It was no problem to leave our luggage with them while we explored the city before we left again. I would recommend staying here.

The owner and her mother were very nice and extremely helpful / knowledgeable. They helped book some tours and transportation and provided useful tips. The location was quite good - (roughly 5-10 minute tricycle to the Cathedral which costs about 10 pesos). It's probably about a 15 minute walk to the main stretch with some very good restos. There's a...

The lady running JLC speaks great English and is very helpful. Rooms are basic but worth the price. Great for a night stop. She organised our tour and van to El Nido. Close to the main strip of restaurants etc (15 min walk). Close to airport - 10 minute tricycle.

This is a basic little hostel with simple rooms and amenities. What really makes it special is how lovely the staff are.

We also organized our Subterranean...

Basic small room. Nothing fancy. We stayed in a fan room for one night. Room was slightly dark, although it was spacious enough and clean. Location okay. A nice 5/10 minutes walk from town. No central hang outs, but convenient, and not many other options at this budget price.

A little quiet joint about a 15 min walk from the main road of Puerto Princesa. Cheap rooms, good bed, nice family run place. The reason I booked this place was they were able to organize a tour to the underground river for me in advance. In high season you sometimes need to book a week in advance to secure...
