Feel rather taken advantage of with this rental. We booked and completely prepayed through airbnb, expecting a hut with complete kitchen so we could do our own thing and make our own meals to take a break from the usual backpacker life of eating out 3 times a day. This is what was pictured and advertised for what we paid....

It was such an amazing discovery to find vivian's nipa hut. I could say is the best place to stay in panagsama for budget travellers!:) Janet the manager is so nice and in the hut there is all you may need and more!

They have clean and big rooms for solo backpackers. Though there's a chance that you might have rommies in event but when I went and check in there it's only me who occupy the big spacious room. The CR is big 24/7 water supply plus it's very near to Pacitas disco bar and other clubs and chill out places! Though...

Booking at Vivian's Nipa Hut was just perfect for us! It was so cheap. It does not have aircons, but the electric fans were just enough. The nipa hut had 4 different rooms (good for 2 people), and it was perfect for our group of 8 people. It had 2 bathrooms, and 1 kitchen where you can cook your own...

I had a hard time finding a contact number for them online but Ms. Vivian was very prompt when replying via email. They told us we were getting one big room for 400 pesos per head which was the cheapest from other accommodations I asked. When we arrived, we were surprised that it was a house that has an airconditioned...

We arrived to Moalboal at 10 pm and were taken to this place by the tricycle driver John. Well originally we were taken to another place, but Vivien´s Hut was just around the corner and we liked it much better than the original place. It was quite difficult to get the room at 10 pm, because - as we later...

We spent our first night in Panagsama at nearby Marcosas - it was nice but slightly out of our budget so decided to relocate here where we got much better value for money! For P1000 we had our own self contained private cottage with AC, kitchen, lounge room with TV, huge bathroom, and balcony. The internet was good, the staff...

the room that i rent is spacious and cheap. it can fit 5 people in it. even though its far from the main road but most of the habal habal drivers know the place. the only disappointment is the internet connection. but i think i can live with that.

We're supposed to stay at Moalboal Backpackers Lodge but Kuya John (Habal-habal driver I met at the town proper) was insistent that we stay in Vivian's. We chose the fan room for 2, with own CR and entrance gate for Php 500/night. This is just 2 minutes away from the 'beach'. We had a place where we can hang our...

Lovely place. We paid 500 for a double (fan, shared bathroom). Place got cleaned daily and there are 2 kitchens. They sell beer and water at supermarket-price. If you go snorkling in front of this place (just across the road you get in the sea) you are sure to see huge sea turtles and maybe even sea snakes and seahorses!

“There is one room that is separate from the nipa hut itself - the room that has its own bathroom. That was the best room I think. :)”
