Planning a trip to Banaue? I'd recommend you stay here at Banaue Homestay. The rooms are clean and keeps you warm. There are 2 clean bathrooms with hot/cold showers. Free wifi is also one of the plus at this homey place. Also, they offer a variety of meals and you can also request on how you would like your food...

An amazing three nights at Banaue Homestay! Beatriz, hostess extraordinaire, is an absolute queen of hospitality. I arrived at 8am, dazed and confused from a sleepless night on a freezing cold bus from Manila. Beatriz and her lovely staff were there to anticipate my every need, offering me hot tea and breakfast immediately upon arrival. My room was not yet...

Rooms are basic and small but enough to stay for night or two. Rooms are clean and shared bathrooms were clean, too. We also had breakfast and two dinners and food was good and tasty. Bea was absolutely great and she supports guests on all matters and inquiries. We regret going to Tourist Information Centre and booked tours there before...

The place is OK considered the other options in the area. It is clean and the staff is friendly and attentive. A bit new for me was the shared bathroom, what was clean and everything, but still I am willing to tolerate this for 1 (2) nights only. The room was very small, there was no place for Your bag...

Room was clean & basic, the woman who runs it ripped us off for the tours and her daughter or other lady with the children looked at me with such contempt if I asked for something like a towel really made me uncomfortable. The woman who runs it comes across as fake friendly which Im sure some people assume as...

Unfortunately we were not able to stay at Banaue Homestay as it was full but Beatriz was kind enough to find us alternative accommodation not far away. We were still welcomed there to eat and gain any advise Beatriz had to offer. Would definitely recommend staying here, there are beautiful views over the rice terraces and it is not far...

Banaue homestay is definitely a great place! Beatriz the owner and all her staff are super nice and it really feels like home! We stayed in the room with the attached bathroom (rice terraces view is only from the other rooms).

Bea is simply the best- warm, helpful, and always happy to chat with guests at any time of the day! It's a family-run operation with beautiful views of the terraces themselves, and Bea also helped me book a trek to Batad with other guests. Highly recommended!

Bea was a wonderful host and took care of everything from the minute we made the booking, ensuring we knew how to get there right up to buying our bus tickets and taking us to the bus to leave Banaue. The room was small but cosy and the shared bathroom facilities were fine. The terrace where you could take breakfast/dinner...
