Great place to sleep; limited scope to socialise
Much better than my stay at The Outpost a week ago. Decent sized single bed, effective blackout curtain, drying racks outside, a small changing area in the room for privacy, sufficient hooks for ‘stuff’ as well as aircon, a fan, plug sockets, hot water etc. It’s not somewhere to hang out although there’s the vegan cafe upstairs (they do have cows’ milk for coffee for those of us who still do that sort of thing) but it’s a great place to sleep despite its proximity to the main road. to the market and the bus terminal.

The cafe vibe was amazing and chill. The rooms match the vibe of the upstairs cafe which made it flow. The food in the cafe is something everyone should try (coming from someone who isn’t vegan)

Great hostel near town
Hostel is really great, new, clean, good facilities. Service is also perfect, really kind staff. Beach is nearby but probably you will have to go to near Cabanas beach for bathing. You can come to town for 50 php with tricycle or walk for 20 minutes.

Staffs are friendly. Pods and rooms are neat, clean and comfortable. All of these for a very cheap price.

A Value for Money stay at El Nido
The presence of owners AJ & AJ during arrival with chef Marcial who prepared healthy food (mostly vegan as the owners are!) from the kitchen and our conversations made our stay an awesome one. Staff Irish and Analyn were always present for the guests needs and drinking water is always available aside from the signature coffee. The comfort of the bed and the cleanliness of our airconditioned pod and the one of a kind experience of the toilet and bath and how it was conceptualized and organized should not be missed for recognition!

Pods were clean and the shower had hot water. There was air conditioning in the room too. They also arranged out mini-van back to Puerto Princessa (500 pesos) each and the journey took 5 hours. Breakfast could have been cheaper.

Staff so friendly, very clean and cold rooms with lovely cosy beds that have curtains for privacy. Stayed in another hostel around the same price in El Nido and this was just so much better. Couldn’t recommend it enough.

All you expect in a hostel, overall is a good place to just sleep, clean showers as most of the time I am away to explore the island and party!
