Back to Basic
For a simple accommodation with basic amenities, this is a place to stay. It has a very nice home-like atmosphere. I highly recommend a wi-fi repeater/extender downstairs.

Good 6.0
Street noise but generally tolerable
Get a room at the back on the main building to minimize street noise (tricycles!). For the 1st night they put us up at the single-room house across the street because a couple extended their stay. The lady manager offered us a P1000 "discount" on any tour but after I inquired in town the price she offered still came out higher. Some discount indeed. We had no choice but to stay there, that room was above some shantytown hut behind it. Get used to wet bathrooms as they are tiny and do not have tubs. A/C ok. Power went down twice in two nights but there was a storm on both nights and the power was down in all of El Nido. It came back on after about 10 min. Wifi worked fine in our street-side room above the reception. It's a 5-7 minute walk to the main street. Stay somewhere else if you want peace and quiet. There's generally no acceptable mid-range options in El Nido so I suggest pay a little more (US$100-120) to receive the minimum comfort you would want

Poor 2.0
Room occupied by somebody else and relocated
When I arrived at the reception at 15:00 my room had been given to somebody else, and they didn't have any other room available. I ended up relocated to the guesthouse next door, which was not what I had paid for.

reasonable value...get what you pay for.
This is a budget based accommodation, and as such you get what you pay for. It is an adequate room, and shower with air conditioning. I did find for two people it was somewhat compact !! The shower does stand over the toilet bathroom. But as I say the price you pay reflects this. The staff are very helpful and friendly, and it is in a good location for everything in El Nido

Great Staff Great Value
Very clean comfortable stay, great value but above all the staff were very friendly and helpful, rooms were cleaned everyday. Each afternoon we would receive a warm welcome with tea / coffee and Banana Q, The Hotel is situated close to the town ideal for walking directly to the boat trips and restaurants.
