Thanks Mark for making it possible for me to experience new year in LU. Walked in and no reservations made; almost impossible to be accommodated since it was already new years eve. I thought it's going to be a lonesome new years day but ended...More

It's very barebones. It provides you a decent bed or hammock to sleep. Most of it is self service. One issue is the lack of electricity outlets, they only have them in one area, far from beds. Keep in mind that the hostel is right...More

The best thing about The Circle Hostel is its affordable price. Good for backpackers, but not for oldies who cannot endure climbing up stairs and double- or triple-deck bunkbeds. No wifi, though understable, because part of the advocacy of the place is meeting new friends...More

Thanks for your review. To clarify though, we do actually have WiFi available for all guests. But we do encourage people to get off their phones and enjoy the moment and live in the now.

I can’t believe how many friends I made when my best friend and I stayed here. This is an amazing place if you are a spontaneous back packer who wish to meet people and make friends! It is uncomfortable to sleep but we didn’t actually...More

My friends and I were generally okay with the place. What we loved most was the openness of the other guests at the hostel and interaction with people outside our circle. Timely, there was even a free Fire show! :) What we were disappointed in...More

About
Description
The Circle Hostel is a chain of budget friendly eco-hostels in the Philippines. We want to be a sanctuary for the artsy and the adventurous where people can express themselves freely among each other More and on our walls. Because at the Circle Hostel, there are no strangers. Our bunk-houses are all fan-cooled and in dormitory style. You can opt between an all-female dorm or the co-ed one. Or go for an ergonomic hammock with a built-in mosquito netting. Our bathrooms have hot/cold showers and out toilets have bidets. Not too shabby for a hostel! ;) Breakfast is a simple meal of fresh bread, spreads and bananas. Less
