The rooms are very small and dirty. Not worth the 500 pesos we paid per room per night. No attched bathrooms. The lady at the reception forgot that we paid one day's rent and kept on arguing with us to pay it. The 3 stars is only for the stunning views from the terrace of the Bacuit Bay and the...

Really noisy, urine smell in the room, dirty bathroom and toilet, very expensive. I guess there are prisons with better conditions. It's supposed to be the budget option but please, look elsewhere and pay a little bit more. We will do that after we checkout.

We really liked it here. The balcony was great overlooking the harbour and boats, stunning view. The room was clean with two fans and there is a kitchen with kettle for coffee or instant noodle soup. Location could not be better. For this price it cannot get much better. Showers simple but clean enough, there are two upstairs one was...

The most evenings we spent on this terrace with sone beers. What i missed was toiletseats and a locker, you can give...

Good value for money although it's quite noisy and there's other alternatives with nicer bathrooms. Some dorm rooms are better than others so have a look round. Wouldn't stay here again as o found nicer options for the same price elsewhere in El Nido

I stayed here for 3 nights only because of the friends I made - this place is not worthy. Ok, the location is good; ok, there's a nice balcony right by the beach, but that's pretty much it. Place is dirty, noisy, with almost useless showers and the staff is not helpful at all. Oh, and the WiFi doesn't work....

This place is filthy, I'm not going to lie. But its right on the beach with a balcony, is 300 pesos for a dorm or 600 for a private room and has the best Wifi in El Nido (strangely enough!) The sheets are clean (I think) so we didn't mind and the shower had much more pressure than previous places...

“The rooms further away from the balcony will have less party/ocean noise, but more street noise. The big corner room up the stairs on your right was bright and spacious.”
