Book on my on from the airport. 600 pesos a night share bathroom. Good internet connection Close to everything. I would recommend it to any backpackers. Of course if you are looking for a nice real hotel this isn't the place. It might be noisy at night because there are many clubs around.

For budget conscious travelers, Alta City offers basic amenities if you are looking for a place to stay near most restaurants and other interesting sights in Puerto Princesa. It has a fairly good internet connection which may surprise patrons owing to its simple rooms and ambience.

The pension house is strategically located along Rizal Ave. It is very close to major establishments luke banks, restos, and fastfood chains. The rooms are big, toilets are good, has hot shower, and safe. I strongly recommend the place because aside from being affordable, it is close to almost everything. The staffs are very polite.

The Alta City Pension is centrally located, tucked down a short narrow lane way off the main street. A big advantage to it's position is that it is sheltered from the road noise and loud late night music from the bars across the road. Your sleep is sure to be peaceful.
