Great for backpackers Cheap simple rooms. My room was clean. Nice communal areas which makes it easy to meet other backpackers. Also really convenient location. Only suited to backpackers who don't mind a bit of rough round the edges. They also do laundry and the owners are very friendly and helpful. read more

I spent two nights here simply to do some diving. We saw the sign on the main street and followed the dodgy walkway to the guesthouse. The prices were good and the rooms were nice.

I felt like I was staying at a locals house. The people who run the hostel are really nice and allowed us to use the showers/toilets until our ferry left late at night. The showers have pressure and the toilets actually flush!

In the mornings its loud but no louder than you would expect anywhere else in the Philippines.

Free coffee and water was available which is always a bonus. Met some really cool fellow travellers here. I would recommend this hostel for more

“Nice, simple place in Coron” Good backpacker hangout and all the rooms are double beds, no dorms. Price is respectable for a bed, fan and a nice size room. Definitely stayed in worse. There ain't a great deal of Backpacker joints around Coron but this is one of the better ones. Friendly staff and good faculties. I would recommend earplugs especially if you get the outside rooms, the roosters start pretty early in the morning. .. read more

I highly commend this place! But if you are after the luxury and comfort of the home tou left, nah this isnt for you! This is for us who are there for the adventure, those who love interacting with fellow travellers and exchanging insights regarding fun activities not to miss and future places to roam. read more
