They have clean and big rooms for solo backpackers. Though there's a chance that you might have rommies in event but when I went and check in there it's only me who occupy the big spacious room. The CR is big 24/7 water supply plus it's very near to Pacitas disco bar and other clubs and chill out places! Though... More

Booking at Vivian's Nipa Hut was just perfect for us! It was so cheap. It does not have aircons, but the electric fans were just enough. The nipa hut had 4 different rooms (good for 2 people), and it was perfect for our group of 8 people. It had 2 bathrooms, and 1 kitchen where you can cook your own... More

I had a hard time finding a contact number for them online but Ms. Vivian was very prompt when replying via email. They told us we were getting one big room for 400 pesos per head which was the cheapest from other accommodations I asked. When we arrived, we were surprised that it was a house that has an airconditioned... More

We arrived to Moalboal at 10 pm and were taken to this place by the tricycle driver John. Well originally we were taken to another place, but Vivien´s Hut was just around the corner and we liked it much better than the original place. It was quite difficult to get the room at 10 pm, because - as we later... More

We spent our first night in Panagsama at nearby Marcosas - it was nice but slightly out of our budget so decided to relocate here where we got much better value for money! For P1000 we had our own self contained private cottage with AC, kitchen, lounge room with TV, huge bathroom, and balcony. The internet was good, the staff... More

the room that i rent is spacious and cheap. it can fit 5 people in it. even though its far from the main road but most of the habal habal drivers know the place. the only disappointment is the internet connection. but i think i can live with that.

We're supposed to stay at Moalboal Backpackers Lodge but Kuya John (Habal-habal driver I met at the town proper) was insistent that we stay in Vivian's. We chose the fan room for 2, with own CR and entrance gate for Php 500/night. This is just 2 minutes away from the 'beach'. We had a place where we can hang our... More

Lovely place. We paid 500 for a double (fan, shared bathroom). Place got cleaned daily and there are 2 kitchens. They sell beer and water at supermarket-price. If you go snorkling in front of this place (just across the road you get in the sea) you are sure to see huge sea turtles and maybe even sea snakes and seahorses!

Nice quiet place in a garden close to fish&coral sanctuary and out of the busy beach resort area. Spacious rattan cottages with full equipped kitchen, everything was clean. Reasonable for that price in compare to other places in Molalboal. We enjoyed the staly!

This is a good budget option in Moalboal. You get good amenities including a full kitchen and fridge plus a TV with a good range of channels for 700 pesos. Great porch for chilling out after an active day of diving/snorkelling. The owner of this place was very nice and helpful. Only problem I can think of is the occasionally... More

“There is one room that is separate from the nipa hut itself - the room that has its own bathroom. That was the best room I think. :)”
