Sol, the hostess, is a lovely and kind woman who welcomed me immediately. The hostel is very simple - in fact, built entirely over the water, reached by some rickety planks, just like the locals do it. I found a fan to be entirely fine to beat the heat while sleeping. The place was clean and small. I would say... More

I booked the hostel a day before my trip and luckily I still got a room available for my stay dates. Ate Sol (the host) is very warm and accommodating, she is very friendly as well as the other guys who take care of the hostel. She even suggested places to visit and assisted me in booking for tour package... More

(+) Location is very convenient, it's near the town and you can go almost anywhere from the inn. The place is very clean and the toilet and shower rooms are maintained every now and then and it's one of the cheapest place you can find in town. 500/night - very ideal for a backpacker.

Accommodation is very cheap and I love its location... Its almost walking distance to everything. Ideal for cheap and solo backpackers. Unluckily, I could hear every single move of the guests on the other room even their switching off of their fan and heard their sexy time at night even in the morning...but I cant complain... Its the other guests... More

This guesthouse is like your average summer camp. It has a certain smell , has a communal toilet and shower, has a dining area and a kitchen. Not too shabby for what you pay for. Problem with this accomodation is that the wall is too thin, might as well put cloth to seperate the rooms. Wanna figure how i found... More

Pretty cheap (500 pesos per room for 2) accommodation in the center of city Coron. Hosts were friendly and the rooms clean. The recreation room is really homly with wifi and kitchen with fridge. The biggest disappointment was terrible smell in the rooms from mud/cloaca underneath. The house is wood building on the poles just above mud and the floor... More
